I uploaded a training video of me and Pixie from a few days ago, so I have that to post, and then this evening the most amazing thing ever happened!
Firstly, the video.
The darker clips at the beginning were day 1 of position work, where I wanted her to walk next to my right foot and sit. You can see at the start I’m stood very close to the footstool on my right, so Pixie has no option but to stay close to me. As she nailed the trick more and more, I could give her more room.
The lighter clips are day 2, and there’s also a little bit of ‘under’ work too 🙂
This evening something truly amazing happened.
I dissociated, very suddenly and out the blue. My partner was out collecting a takeaway so I was home alone. I don’t think I was blacked out for very long, but when I started to come around Pixie was on my lap, looking up at me, and I was repeatedly stroking her back.
Oh my god. I couldn’t believe it.
I was too spacey at the time to think to give her treats, which I’m annoyed about, but as I came around more I gave her lots of praise and fuss and really told her how good she was. I have no idea how long I was blacked out for or how long she was sat on my lap, but waking to her there comforting me was incredible. I’m so grateful to her, she has changed my life so much ❤ ❤ ❤
