Val, she has come a long way and her coat looks great. I can relate to the problem with thunderstorms, that's a tough one, good luck. As for FB she knows exactly what she's doing when she messes with Neilla, doesn't she? grin Our cat, Neely, got along great with Sean but there were times she knew how to push his buttons.

Middle I can relate to the horse and dog thing, it was between Cheyenne and my mare Pixie. The would aggravate each other, when one was good the other was stirring up trouble. So when it happened, I would yell at both of them.

SeanRescueMom, yep FB knows exactly what she is doing. So I am working really hard at calling Neilla to me and giving her a treat. Food solves a lot of things for her.

It's really helpful for me to hear about day by day progress. Neilla sounds (and looks) like she's really worth the time.

Please do continue to update-it's just wonderful to see a dog come home.

I've been wondering how Neilla was doing. She's looking great and hopefully the interactions with FB will get better.

My 2 get along pretty well with my grandson's cat, but every now and then I have to get on them about not annoying him too much. Bentley (the cat) is fine with Ciara, but Caleb intimidates him.

Another quick update.

Neilla doesn't like the Thundershirt, she hates to have her hair matted down. I have the DAP plugin in the Laundry Room and Put some DAP spray on a Bandana plus one TraquiTab which seems to be a pretty good combination. Will keep working with the combo and her. If it is really stormy she loves it if I take some of her food and toss some on the floor and she goes into Hoover mode.

I am pretty convinced that at one time in her life she had some OB training. The other day I called her name a few times and no response. I put my OB voice on and "Neilla Come" and she came happily trotting to me.

She is a bit silly sassy. I start feed time with a little dog food in a bowl and make her wait, she sits, tosses her head then waits until I tell her it is hers. She will wait while I am putting food in her dinner bowl. Then we go over to the kitchen for me to add her supplement and other goodies. This is where the sass gets going. She will either sit or lay down and bark while her tail is going swoosh swoosh. She can be intimidating because she has a really deep voice.

Thanks for the update, it sounds like you have figured out how to get through thunderstorms with her. That was always one of my biggest anxiety problems with Sean.

She may be sassy but she certainly has spunk when it comes to feeding time. Any improvements with Fuzzybutt and her?

SeanRescueMom thanks for asking. There are small things happening with her and the FuzzyButt on both sides. This morning Fuzz was coming up from the lower level, Neilla was over by the kitchen, she saw Fuzz and slowly walked over to the gate, Fuzz moved but didn't dart away. So I called Neilla back to the kitchen and gave her a really yummy reward, some raw ground meat. Before Neilla would charge over to the gate and Fuzz would run like her life depended on it, so I will take any little progress I see with them.

Any more new improvements between Neilla and FuzzButt? In your last post it sounded like things were going in the right direction.

I thought of you yesterday because DH and I went to an art festival and couldn't take our eyes off a lady with a Great White Pyrenees. We approached them and the dog was super sweet. She told us she adopted her only 3 wks. ago from the same shelter where we got Sean. She was brought up on a transport from TN with her brother but she said her brother was no where near as friendly.

Not a lot of improvement between the cat and dog, I think they like the game of just f'ing with each other.

Neilla is doing well. Hubby was giving her a bit too much freedom when he would take her out by not putting her on leash or in a fenced area and it almost cased a big problem. So now she is either on a line or in one of the two fenced in areas we have. I am really impressed on how smart she is, just like the Sheps she likes her routines. So times she will head to the laundry room on her own when it is meal time for us. I need to get some more pictures, he patches on her back are getting darker.

Meeting people is a work in progress for her, we don't get many visitors and I haven't had time to take her places.
