I lay an easter egg hunt of treats out on the bedroom floor frequently. Two weeks ago, even one week ago, she might ignore them most of the day. Yesterday, she watched place a treat on the cushion near her bed, on the floor near the closet, on the floor near her dish. As soon as I sat at my desk to resume my work, she got up and ate them one by one.
Outside she seems to be consistently fearful. It is best if we don't see a car, person, or dog. Even if we don't, she keeps her walks short, and hurries back on the way home. Her pulling is worse: she is more insistent. Most of her day is still spent quietly on her bed. At night I hear a lot of scratching. I am dying to bathe her, but I think I will try brushing her instead. In the morning I find tufts of black hair. After a walk I sometimes hook her outside so that I can run the vacuum. Her bed is filthy with tufts of hair and moist areas from her panting. As I write, she is quiet, no panting, and we are both enjoying the morning stillness.
