He'll be doing better, and then something spooks him- the lights flicker, a chainsaw cranks up 150 yards down the road, a fly buzzes by, etc. It is like 2 steps forward, and then sometimes 1,2, or 3 steps backwards. I shot this video of him eating yesterday. It took 3 and 1/2 hours to upload to Youtube. (You're welcome, lol) He was more relaxed than last week. All of our holiday boarders have gone home, so it's just him, Bert, Rosie, Ginger and Daisy in the kennel.
I kept moving the food around the pen to give him to move out of the corner. If he heard, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner." He would volunteer. He lurves the corner. You would think he only has 2 legs, on one side, to look at him, as that is all you ever see.
So I am moving food left to right, front to back, from my hand, from the floor, etc. to get him to move. Notice he gets up and stands to eat. This is about the 2nd day we've seen this- he is less crouched, so I think that is a good sign.
I also have been leaving a towel in his cage, up at the very front, to encourage him to lay up there. Last night he pooped and urinated all over it. Maybe the dead people said to, I don't know.
Yesterday I also got this little video of Rosie and Ginger walking around outside. Not much of Rosie as I cut out the part where she gets excited and starts jumping all over people. She needs a little work on her manners. You can see a difference in Ginger from her earlier videos. I was walking her yesterday afternoon . . . she was right behind me, . . .I stepped over a down tree branch, and my heel accidently hit her in the chin. She yelped as if it was totally my fault and on purpose.
Ginger stopped for a rest by a tree on her walk.
