#681 Getting to know you.
by Erin Napier
We spent the day lying in the grass letting Chevy get to know us. He’s so VERY afraid of people for some reason, so we’re taking it slow. He likes to eat out of our hands and lie close to Ben, but he won’t come when we call him or walk with us. They say it’s baby steps with Pyrenees pups, so I’m trying not to worry about it too much.
We even invited Sugar and Hooper to play and try to make him come out of his shell. It worked sort of—he liked watching them and followed them around the yard a few times.
I hope by this time next week he’s feeling more comfortable. Until then, I’ll be taking my Zyrtec and Benadryl and facing the pet store for goodies that might make him happy.
