I’ve had a crummy day with Pixie.
Not being as focused as I know she’s able to be, completely off doing her own thing on walks. Oh, and I woke up from a nap to her chewing my glasses…aaagh!
Um, so, where was I…oh yeah.
So meh day, I was feeling frustrated. Then this evening a little stress triggered a big freak out, and the panic then triggered a huge dissociative episode.
My partner said I blacked out for about 30 minutes and he couldn’t get a reaction out of me at all. Are you ready for the next bit? He said as soon as I started acting weird Pixie jumped onto the footstool next to me and sat right next to me!!!
It was her licking my hands that apparently started to ‘wake me up’…crazy how she seems to have this instinct on noting when I’m ‘off’ and helping me. I guess it makes her perfect to be come a psychiatric alert dog though haha 🙂
I’ll definitely be having training where I fake dissociating and c/t for her sitting next to me, on me, pawing at me and licking my hands.
It’s been about an hour so I’m still sluggish and slowly fighting to become more normal, but here are some photos I took when I was first getting back into myself.
My partner got creative and was using two bobbly dog toys to ground me hahahaha! Pixie commandeered them afterwards XD
So that was that.
Earlier today we worked on ‘beg’ too, for no reason other than it’s cute. She really rocked this.
