Goldie and I are friends!

So after the trip to Vburg with the dogs, Goldie and I have bonded. I stayed home to work from the house on Tues (and today because my truck is back at the shop) and I tried to work with Goldie when I couldn't read about climate change anymore.

First, I did actually get a LOT of work done at home. In 8 hrs at the house, I can get done what would take me 14 hrs in the office. Major progress. Anyway, I actually got Goldie to come in the back door for the first time. It took a couple treats, multiple attempts for 3-4 hrs, and me using the latch to keep the screen door propped open for a couple minutes while I was away from the door by the washer. She came in (after trying a few times), went right into her kennel, let me partially dry her off (she loves sitting in the rain) and then came out to me sitting on the steps to finish drying her off. Yesterday afternoon she even wandered around the house with me there, rather than hiding in her spot the entire time.

Last night she even laid on the floor by us on the couch for a while! She got a lot of petting and is gaining confidence in me not being the evil man she thinks I am. Although, I would get up and she'd scurry off, but she came right back after I sat down.

I even got her inside again this morning!!
