|It has been a long while that I have not been here, but it has not been possible... sorry. Hello to old and new friends.
So... Maya is now a year old and somethings are perfect, like her potty training and others... I guess not so perfect.
1. Where I have her haircut, which by the way is where I used to take Arthur to, does not do a good job; I am not happy how Maya hates going there and her haircuts are not the most attractive ones to look at.
This last time, the owner told me that she thinks Maya needs to be more socialized. I say, WTH... since I regularly take Maya on walks, she plays with her "boyfriend" Jessie all the time, and she even goes to the doggie park and is people friendly!
2. Maya scratches one side of her face, around mouth area, like crazy! She does it so hard sometimes that I feel the need to stop her. The Dr. gave me ear and eyes drops and Benadryl. The last one makes her groggy... and I hate seeing her like that.
I have changed her food several times, and nothing seems to help (the lastest food is Natural Balance and she loves it; Blue Buffallo worked fine until she got tired of it... and it was not helping her with her tears either, I did hope that would help).
3. As for putting on her harness to go for a walk or to pick her up to take her downstairs, Maya now does not come to us. She just sits there. We utilize the regular commands and nothing. Most of the time, she either does not go for a walk or goes downstairs with us, because it does get old to call her and assure that all is fine and there's an "award" by her coming to us.
I know I should have more patience... and I am working on timing it and than just go my way; what I don't understand is that Maya used to come to us, now she does not, she does understand what is going on but... for whatever reason... she just sits there.
4. She only seems to do "tricks" upon knowing that we have treats ready. Any other way to go about it?
So, any advice? Thanks a lot.
