I tried. I really tried. But they still like her.
I went over anxiety in general, separation anxiety, owning a pit bull mix. That it has taken Desi 2+ years to be the somewhat well-adjusted dog she is today. That Lola has to have consistency and patience. That if the other housemates can't follow her training program, they should not interact with her unsupervised. That there are no guarantees how/when her anxiety will manifest after moving to a new household. The joys of being jumped on by a sopping wet drooly dog. Taking only baby steps and that progress is not measured day to day but week to week (if that quickly).
The final decision belongs to the adoption committee. The applicants are going on vacation at the end of May, so even if they are approved, I have Lola for another 5 weeks. Time to buckle down on training!
I realized today how emotionally charged picking up leashes is, so I am going to practice picking up leashes randomly. Also need to tackle her stress at riding in the truck.
However, when I got home last night, her crate was bone dry!!!!
I don't know if it was because I accidentally left the light on in my room or because I took a shower earlier than usual and the process of getting ready for work was done slowly over a couple of hours. I'm crossing my fingers for another dry crate tonight!
