Hope has been doing a little trick for the past couple of weeks my husband didn’t tell me about until yesterday.
When he comes home, Jake and Windy run to great him, but Hope decides to do something different. Hope will come up to him, bump her nose on his shin and then run back a few feet and watch. My husband tells her she is a “good girl” and continues to greet the wiener dogs. He knows not to go after her because she will go off in the opposite direction.
Hope has not tried the “shin bump” with me. She seems to favor my husband, which makes sense to me because all she knew were men in the Amish puppy mill.
Maybe some day my big girl will learn to trust humans.
