@zande I was so so nervous at first when they started to play, because they were totally silent, no growling at all. They still are mostly silent apart from their scampering/slamming/sliding/knocking-things-over sounds lol. Not worried at all now and rewarding them for sharing spaces seems to have helped significantly more than the whole "let them figure it out for themselves" idea.
Hi All! My heart surgery went well and I came home this morning. Abbey gave me a huge BAROO but her first order of business when she got out of her crate was to gobble up last night's supper which she had been saving till I came home. Then she cried because Heather (my DIL) left. Then she had to check out my overnight bag and my ouches. She was most interested in the bandaid in the bend of my arm where the IV was! Mostly she hangs on me in case I might disappear again. She did allow me one short nap, then she woke me up so we could have lots of fun playing green bunny, hedgehog, soccer ball and squeaky chicken, which everybody knows is good therapy after heart surgery. I do appreciate all your kind words and prayers for me and for Abbey. She is recovering nicely from being chewed up by that monster last week but she still doesn't want to go the park.

OOHH soo good to hear everything went well!!! Lots of happy (((HUGS))) for you & Abbey. Once you get better I'm sure Abbey will get to tackling that fear of the park. Make sure u give her lots of treats along the way…maybe some HIGH value treats like turkey hotdogs
Lots of prayers for a speedy recovery!!
I am glad to know all is well and you are home, but I'm sure Abbey is even happier to have you back with her!!

Lenora, Glad you're back home with Abbey. She seems to be doing her best as good therapy for you. You must have told the doc about Abbey so he would let you out, right? Now that you're home, recovery will be so much quicker and sweeter. Healing thoughts and best wishes that you and Abbey get back to the park soon.
