She woke up about half an hour after we all fall asleep, and cried, Ned woke up, open the box, stroked her and she fell asleep right back. In the morning we woke up at 7:00 and took her out. Then back home for food, and out, back home for water - and out…
She was really scared at first, every car or person is a reason for both excitement and fear. Her head and front legs want to play and investigate, but the tail and back legs wants to bolt - so she’s running to and away at the same time. Every few steps she stops and sits or want to run back to the direction she came from.
After 3 walks we all fall asleep for a couple more hours.
In the afternoon we went together to the pet store to get her a brush and a chewing toy, and she met a whole bunch of other dogs - she was so excited and so scared and so happy all at the same time - running and jumping and falling and being both timid and aggressive at the same time.
There were a lot of successes today - no peeing or shitting in the house at all, which is pretty amazing. A nice play with other people and dogs, some running and jumping and general friskiness both in the apartment and outside for a few moment, when she forgot to be scared.
In the morning her name was Molly, then in the afternoon it was Ginger. I’m not a 100% sure, but it might stay Ginger.
I’m having a lot of fun, but I’m also exhausted, and I just started to get back into getting some work done though really all I want is to play with the puppy and look at the puppy.
