I'm so glad she's learning, though. She sounds very adaptable, and boy is she lucky to have you.
Thanks alot of the advice!!
Today I walked her, I couldn't stand not involving her in an activity she loved doing so much. It went really well, VERY SLOW & VERY LONG, but it went well! I walked her the path she knew, at first it was slow, but she got the idea of me calling her. I kept praising her saying good girl to encourage her to keep walking its okay & that I was there with her. I felt that she seemed secured when I called her & knew that I wasn't going to let anything happen to her. I tug at her leash when she's going to bump into something. But the path I went was pretty clear and just mostly grass so it went good. She manged to avoid a bush all by herself!! Its like she knew it was coming! I'm going to try the left & right commands for our next walk instead of tugging on her leash. Then I walked Pepe & Princess separate and afterwards gave all them treats & I cuddled up with Didi & Pepe on the couch and watched the Pursuit Of Happiness. Princess was busy chasing those little flying things the sunlight makes. But then she came and cuddle with us after she was done with her fun.
Thanks elegy for the link! Those are great! And I suppose I'll stop babying her & picking her up, but I just felt so bad that this is happening to her thought it'll make her life easier. I'm thinking of getting one of those I'm blind apparrel since I still want her to take her places with me. And I'm buying a kong for sure! I was actually thinking about her missing out on chasing small critters today, since Pepe & Princess had a ball today chasing a cat out of our backyard & felt bad Didi couldn't take part of the fun sicne she had n oidea there was a cat in our yard, but great to find out she still can chase if I alert her when there's something to chase!
