well i am happy 2 announce that ginger is definately improving. her biting frequence has come down considerably and even her bites have become much milder. the trainer says in another 30-45 days u should see a totaly different ginger hope so *fingers crossed* . also i would like to welcome my self back to this forum as i guess coz of that hdd crash my a/c was lost. btw vidhya ginger has that same orange hedgehog squeaky and she loves it . i know i would get lot of raised eye brows for this but one day ginger was being the devil incarnate. this was last week . some guests had come over and she ran into the room and wouldnt leave she was biting everone including the guests and made me and mother bleed. i took her to my room where she started biting again . that day my patience just went out the door and i slapped her 3 times and not those oh u r so cute slaps more like ill kill you , you #$*#U$# type slaps. it was 2 days after that day i am seeing ginger actually behaving herself. she is not scared of me or anyone but simply put being a better puppy. i dont mind her doing naughty stuff like today she peed on her fav bean bag, all i said was "no bad ginger". anyways i know its wrong to hit puppies but that day the way ginger was doing i bet even gandhi would have done the same :lol: . in anycase its been almost a week and ginger seems to be turning into a nice girl. i have only 4 bite marks in my hand :lol: not 40 as i normally did.
