Anyone want a little sister?
Stacy here. The Child you see with Miley here is Cassidy.
When I first started fostering Miley she was very different. One of the ways was around children. Miley loves kids but was never really taught how to act around them. She jumps on them, runs up to them, play bites, etc.
One little girl in the neighborhood Cassidy was "bit" by Miley. It was a play bite but it did break the skin and hurt her. So after that I was very careful with Miley around the neighborhood kids. Cassidy and her parents were very good about the bite. So in time, Miley got a little better around children and Cassidy became more involved with Miley. What has happened over time is that now when Cassidy sees us outside, she comes out and helps me by walking Miley. Miley loves it! I have worked with Cassidy to be sure to be the pack leader for Miley and Miley for the most part is very submissive to Cassidy. What this last picture is of, is Miley sitting on Cassidys command. I am so proud of both of them. Cassidy was bit by this dog, yet she over time bonded with Miley. To me, this picture epitomizes the fact that no one really believed that Miley could be a good girl. She had 2 homes before coming to us. She just needed someone to work with her and believe in her.
Cassidy was out today and walked with Miley. This hadn't happened since October or so since it was cold. Miley is coming up on her 1 year anny with us. She's been a handful but I sure have enjoyed having the little girl around.
This last picture is of Cassidy telling Miley to sit.
