Here’s a list my foster mom wrote for me to share.
Things I learned in my first 48 hours with Blue Jean…
1. A severe thunderstorm with raucous hail and pounding rain is a non-event; a car passing the fence while Blue Jean is outside is terrifying. (Those things humans call cars are bizarre.)
2. She’s curious but not brave enough to follow through yet. (With time, my Pyr confidence will begin to shine through!)
3. Since she knows what “outside” means, Blue Jean seems house trained. She is also starting to respond to her name. (Blue Jean is a cool name. Thank you.)
4. Treats serve no purpose. (As I settle in and get more comfortable, I am sure healthy treats will become one of my favorite things.)
5. She’s wondering if she can climb or jump my seven-foot fence. (GPRA recommends that adopters carefully monitor their new Pyr’s outside time.)
6. She will probably be fine with other dogs and cats yet be timid and scared of noisy or super active kids until she settles in. She will thrive (slowly) with a quiet, patient, and experienced dog family.
7. She can lift the very tip of her tail into a possible, barely noticeable, nano-second wag. (With time, patience, and love, my tail will be wagging a lot more.)
Pyrly sweet and trying to be a brave girl, Blue Jean
