It took me a year to bond with Summer and to really realize it. I always liked her and thought she was a neat little dog but it took time. We're still not 'as close' as Mia and I are, but I don't think it's fair to compare the two. I've never been as close to any dog as I am to Mia. But Summer is a sweetheart and so much fun to work with. She's crazy and the nicest dog on the planet and that's why I adore her.
Trey took many years to bond with. He was so odd and so impossible to read. It finally came once I stopped comparing him to the other dogs.
