“Okay … put the winter boot on!”
When I see Ray in this kind of position, I am reminded of the Ray of almost 5 years ago. That was the Ray that had no apparent “in-home” living experience; could not manage steps; did not want to be touched; tensed up at the slightest thing; lunged and barked with minimal provocation; had startle response, and displayed no evidence of any prior training.
When he adopted himself out of our local Humane Society, and into my heart, he knew exactly what he was doing!
The full story of Ray is available in the book “Who Said I was up for Adoption?”, available from Friesen Press, Amazon, and all the usual book retailers … in Hard Copy, Paperback, and eBook formats.
