Big day for Skittles

Wow, my daughter was able to hold Skittles today.

Mollie has been dying to hold Skittles since we we got her in May. Up until today, Skittles always tries to nip her when she gets too close. I guess taking Skittles to the park every weekend and holding her head while I let others pet her is paying off. She is getting a lot more tolerant of other people.

Happy day!

Re: Big day for Skittles

Great news Tom!!!! What a brilliant step! They are both wearing red haha

Definitely getting her out socialising with new people has helped

My mum couldn't pat Fargo when i first got him, but when he started going out on his harness, and meeting strangers, he accepted mum !

Well... No, I called up the company on Thursday and they said that since they are custom made, they take about 6 weeks, and because of Christmas and New Years, it may take an extra week...

So now it looks like it may be the 2nd week in January. I will definitely post when it gets here.

That is what I am hoping. Skittles has bitten my wife twice and I really need for her to start accepting "mum"...

The person who abused Skittles was female so that may explain a few of the attacks, but it is sure great to see Skittles warming up to other people. This is really going to ease the situation at home. My wife is very understanding, but after two bad bites, I can understand her concern...

Re: Big day for Skittles

Skittles is beautiful!!!!! I'm glad she's accepting other people. Willie is hard to convince as I've taken him outside countless times but he hates being outside for some reason???? Lola is easy going, she would accept people before Willie does.....

Re: Big day for Skittles

haha yep....the red shirt did it. She should have worn one back in May and everything would have been magically fixed.
