I don't know if any of you have ever had a dog that you could not play with. This was the single point that broke my heart the hardest and longest, especially as play is used in every therapy class Ember and I have taken together. I have always felt this little worry that I was never really going to break through with her - in the truest sense of the phrase - if I couldn't play with her to make her feel better.
I was sitting on the couch about half an hour ago, and felt her jump up. I looked up and and almost scared her with a yelp - she was sitting there a few feet away with this little dino toy in her mouth, looking very sweet and shy. I could almost hear her saying "Hi... um... well... I found this thing... and... wanna?"
I feel so silly getting emotional over this. I don't know if words convey it enough for you guys to understand, but this is really, really big in our house.
