I first brought her home, I made a chair her spot. ….okay so we got to the point where Lola thinks she’s fooling me by quickly moving herself from under the chair before I get there and I just have to go along with it.
Dutch explains that she had a bit of separation anxiety when she first came to live with him.
Lola has a very creative mind… Being separated from her mom at a very young age and her separation anxiety was really bad I couldn’t leave or she would just start . She and I worked on that, I’m not gonna leave her.
Lola lets Dutch know what she wants by using a homemade electronic push-button menu that sits on the floor. The choices are “treat”, “outside”, “hide-and-seek”, and “play”. More often than not, Lola chooses “treat”, which drives Dutch crazy. But he wouldn’t have it any other way.
