Yogi had a few "therapy" visits today.
First, we took Yogi over to my parents for another visit, at their request. Yogi and my Dad continued their love affair and then he went to work and thoroughly charmed my Mom, who isn't enamored with dogs at all. He was very kind with her, putting his bitey bitey phase on the back burner, as if he knew their skin is too fragile for that. My Mom wanted to put him on leash and walk him around her house and he followed her lead beautifully! Here he is sitting and looking up at her:
My Mom is disappointed that he's growing! As we left she asked if we could keep on coming back with him at least once a week. I think she likes him, even if he's getting bigger!
We then visited some friends with a 15 year old son who is deathly afraid of dogs. Yogi was so tired and mellow that the teen felt comfortable petting him.
He also met a neighbor and his formerly aggressive small dog- all went well. Yogi is calm and unassuming around other dogs. He's only assertive with Toby!
We are in the 160s of people he's met since his gotcha day on Dec. 7. I'm confident he's well socialized with people.
We have big plans to meet Penny & Maggie's Mom 3 grand-daughters later this next week, and I hope to get him out and about for more impromptu visits. In addition we will be meeting some big dogs in the next two weeks.
