Maybe treats? everytime you pick her up for a while give her a mini treat. Sorry, I'm sure it won't be long.
The day before I left for my Tokyo trip I took Ponyo to get her shots and check up (she only gained 0.2 oz since last month! So now she is a whopping 2.4 lbs!) Anyway, the vet I take her to is great, but as suspected the doctor speeks little english. I thought it was going to be quick like usual, so we went in when your name was called "Ponyo-san, Konichiwa. Domo." (A little Japanese action for ya all..lol) He looked her over, layed 3 injections on his side table, turned Ponyo head torwards me and told me to hold on to her, which her rear end facing him, and he began to inject her. She squealed and screamed and jumped around (like she always does) but she has never gotten more then one shot at one visit. I guess he mixes the others.
So anyway, since then Ponyo seems afraid of me! I know she thinks I hurt her. She would have no other reason to think diffrently. She would always come up to me and beg me to pick her up and now when she does come to be and I bend down, she runs away :smcry:It has been quite a while ago now, over a week and she still seems skiddish around me. Im SO upset over this. Any tips on her to get her to trust me again, I heartbroken!
thank you! I was thinking the same. A few citys over there is a dog cafe / dog resort that I have been dieing to take the dogs to. BUT its just TO darn hot here to play outdoors like that, so I must wait untill Late Sept or early Oct at the earliest! Maybe a trip to a few pet stores tomorrow will put a puppy smile on her face :wub: thanks for the good idea!great advice! and def don't hold Ponyo again if he asks you...tell him you want a vet tech to do it because of the way he acted last time. Ponyo's probably just a little confused because of that and then you were gone for awhile (maybe thinks you're mad). Maybe a special Ponyo and Mommy outting or two in addition to the extra hugs/love/cuddles... hope it gets back to normal soon ((((hugs))))
LOL good idea! But be ready for my little stinker to put up a good fight w/ your heart strings! She is a charmer and I will warn you, she will cause a severe love obsession! :thumbsup:Wait!!!! I just gave rotten advice. Here's what you need to do :
1) Ship Ponyo to me and I will
2) Ship Daisy to you
ugg..I know what you mean! When we started on raw the dogs loved it and would sit at my feet when I do their bi-weekly meal preps (cutting meat, trimming meat, bagging...) and I love the attention so I often slip them bites here and there threw my process. Which led to Ponyo only eating when I hand fed her! She is over it now, all it took was a meal or two that she ignored, then she got HUNGRY! lol I love my little stinker! :thumbsup:Aww - poor Ponyo and poor you. I think she'll be fine with you soon. I would use treats but be careful about hand feeding. You don't want one type of unwanted behavior to be replaced by another and be a slave to hand feeding. I also would insist on only one shot at a time for our little ones. If they have any reaction you want to know what it's from. My vet spaced the shots and I came back a week later for each - she only charged for shots not extra visits. She had her nurse hold Tyler when he was getting shots. I like being in the room to find out what's being done to him (as I did with my infant son) so I don't like the idea of them being taken out for shots,etc. Sometimes we know our own little ones best (just like being at the groomer) and I like to see for myself how things are handled. Just keep pouring on the love and keep away from the butt
