Comfort Level – One Day At A Time
Our first night with Mork last Monday evening was a bit eventful. Mork was terrified of us. I remember just staring into Morky’s eyes as he was staring right back at me. As soon as I placed my hand with my palm down in front of him, he bolted across the living room. He was shaking. His tail was between his legs. All I wanted him to do was smell my hand and tell him that I came in peace. Well, from his actions that night, he didn’t want any part of… anything!
Morky was scared. I didn’t blame him. He came from a puppy mill. His only interactions with humans were probably with the handler who made him get it on with the females. He probably got little food and no playtime. What kind of life is that? Fortunately, he left that life behind him with the help of Eve’s Sanctuary and now he is here in my living room. Fast forward one week and Mork is still with us. Currently, Mork is out in the living room in his favorite spot on the rug by the TV. I’m happy to say that his comfort level has increased. He follows me around the apartment especially to the kitchen. Whenever I shake his food canister, he comes runnin’! He knows I’m a softy and will give him a few pellets to entertain his stomach. He likes to walk into my office and stretch out on the floor. I’m able to pick him up, pat his head, rub his belly and give him a big hug. His comfort level with the harness and leash has also increased 10 folds! We went out for our evening walk tonight and he totally walked around 2 blocks like a well-behaved normal dog.
As each day goes by, my wife and I continue to be amazed by Mork’s progress. I am certain that Mork will become a happy and confident dog in no time. We just need to take it one day at a time. Good job Mork! We are all rooting for you!
