Just wanted to let you know how Goose is doing. She is a very sweet and loving girl. We let our granddaughter rename her . Bob and I chose Gracie and Sophie. She said she doesn’t have feathers or quack ☺️ so she picked Gracie as her name.
I cut up a hotdog in small pieces and every time Gracie gently took one Haley called her by her new name. So sweet! Gracie ignores our cat…. which Dorie isn’t quite understanding that phenomena:) she has started to give a cross of loud whimper and very tiny bark to let us know when she needs to go outside……of course treats are used for rewards. She is super smart and a very quick learner.
The grandchildren love her however we are minimizing the contact and will grad build up. Younger two are 4 @ 2. Still a little loud and jumpy. With Gracie still acting like she’s been shot at when she hears airplanes, truck horns, sirens we felt slow intro is best. We have taken her shopping with us to help with her lease training and socialization skills:) doing very well!! She started playing with her toys we throw she fetches. And then entertained us while she played with her toys by herself. I am sending you a pic from this morning where she appears to be smiling:)
She is so loved…..thank you for seeing and feeling the love she has inside of her that she unselfishly shares with us and others.
