Ruby was a little cautious when I first came in today. She hid behind the couch and I'd hear "rrrrr" every now and then. Then I'd notice her head peaking around the corner at me. She'd been licking me a few hours earlier when I met her so I knew she'd come around. I sat back on the couch and just talked to her. Pretty soon, I see her sniffing my shoes. She let me pet her and then she rolled over on her back so I could rub her belly and then I knew we were good!
I threw her rope toy for her several times and she chased after it and then we played tug a war with it. She's a pretty good retriever! I put her in the kitchen with her bed and crate.
