A break through perhaps? :P

Audrey has always been such a pain in the bum when I've tried to hand her food. She would attack it, snatch it, drop it etc. But tonight I handed her a little pasta macaroni and she ate it lol!! And then a second one! I was a bit shocked LOL I didn't think she would ever like to take food from my hand. But perhaps now I will always have to share dinner with her hahaha :P

I also think this is a good thing because I might be able to do some training with her now, if she will start accepting treats from my hand!

Hahaha well thats the thing, she'd take it off my plate if I let her, but she wouldn't take it from my hand. She's always been kinda nervous about anything on or in hands like rings etc so I think that maybe her nerves are calming!

ROFLOL...THAT cracked me up.

Good girl, Audrey! Perhaps she is just now realizing that treats taste best straight out of mum's hand.

I have found that if I hand the food slowly toTiki and a bit off to the side she will take without snatching it and dropping it. I also will pull my hand back just as she is reaching for it if it lookings like she is going to lunge for it.
