I have an almost three year old daughter ❤️😍😆🙈….. And as anyone who has ever had a three year old will attest to, she is sort of this amazing tiny mixture of the sweetest most gentle little lamb and the Mad Hatter. This morning she was frantically searching for this tiny little 2 dollar trinket she refers to as “squishy pony”. Her anxiety about not being able to find this worthless little toy (for which I am picturing all the ways I’d love to decapatate and set it on fire while I feign extreme interest in our envevor to recover him) is as real as any “real” crisis in an adult life.
This same patience and understanding is something we frequently have to apply to our rescue dogs. QBert has had multiple homes in his short life. As each home was ripped away, his anxiety grew. Finally he found a true partner when once again he lost that family and his home to massive hurricane damage. He was a lost soul. His foster home has helped him grow more confident and taught him to funnel his nervous energy in healthy ways. I suspect he will have some set backs when he finds his forever family so we really want to make sure that whoever takes this endearing little lab mix into their home and heart is really prepared to KEEP him there and offer the kind of patience and acceptance that we all need from time to time. QBert is jumpy so we think a home without little kids is best. He is such a loving and devoted fellow, we know he will continue thrive with consistant fair training and love.
