Today was my Birthday, and Aneira's designated bday, but I wasn't feeling celebratory... She got presents and went for a walk with Sierra this morning, but the topper was a training trip to the mall!
Tonight there were pet photos with santa, so we were allowed in the mall after it was closed... I went in with very low expectations (at least 1 outburst), but she blew me away with how good she did! Zero outbursts, and at the end we even walked around the area where they were doing the pictures and where all the dogs were! I'm not going to explain every video (there are explanations in my story for those that want to know details), but you can clearly see her progress from when we first arrived to the last video...
We were within 20 feet of other dogs and she didn't fixate at all, and I am aware it was mostly due to the new environment, but I'll take it!
Afterwards we went to the park for a well deserved run since her brain was scrambled eggs at that point ☺
Tomorrow she gets to start her week off with a trip to the vet for some vaccinations, she's such a lucky dog.... 😂
Anyways, that was how we spent our Birthdays, cuz when you're this old you have no need for fanfare...
