We (Lucy and I) still have our ups and downs when it comes to behaviors. Some days I get scared that she has serious issues, other days it's just more annoying every day the clarity about who she is shifts.
There are days when I just want to cry, she can be so mean. There are day when she probably feels the same way about me.
She has however been consistently nice to our new dog. This gives me hope. She tears up in the morning when we leave because Zeppelin starts whining in the kennel and Lucy doesn't understand why we would leave him. She pets him, gives him attention, tries to play with him. This morning she fed him his food, bringing a few pieces to the dog at a time. It's the most Zep has eaten since he came home. Lucy also helped me bring the dog outside to go potty and held the leash while I cleaned up after Zep's successful mission. When I dropped her off at school today she said "I am excited to go home and see A Zep a lind". She gives me hope!
