Oh yes, I have learned more patience since becoming a bun-slave, than I did when I became a Mom (I have FOUR kids!) Midnight is constantly teaching me about patience 'cause she simply is not going to do things MY way most of the time! LOL!
As far as sitting in my lap, she is not there yet but we're getting closer. I sit on the floor with her raisins and I've started setting them in my lap so that she will have to at least put her paws up on me and lean her head into my lap to get them.
Midnight is timid beyond words, yet I am noticing that she has mellowed out quite a bit from the way she was when she first got here. The man who had her before breeds for ... well... purposes other than enjoying buns as pets. Hands in her mind are not gentle loving things. When I first started petting her, I had to do so with my feet because she simply didn't trust the hands at all.
Now that she realizes that I won't grab her by the scruff her neck and be rough with her or anything, she enjoys a good rub with my hands but likes it better with my feet (starts the *tooth purr* and everything!)
Anyways, I'm rambling. Tell me, how long she can go without her nails being trimmed again? I thought it was about every 6-8 weeks that it needed to be done, so I'll need to figure something out in the next 4-5 weeks. If there's another way to get them filed down or something, like by having her dig in some sort of pebbly material or something, I'll go that route. She is definitely a digger.
I sure hate to drive an hour away for a nail trim but if push comes to shove, that's what I'll have to do.
I'll talk to ya soon!
