Okay so first off im not putting the little girl I babysit in harms way. But with Maggies HUGE fear of little girls I figured I could kill two birds with one stone. The little girl I babysit daily is 2 years old and is a absolute animal lover. And luckily her mother has taught her the proper way to behave around animals. Atleast the best a 2 year old can behave I guess. Anyways the first day she was here I put Maggie in her crate. Just because the last experience she had with a little girl totally ruined any progress we had once made and I didn't want to scare the little girl with all of Maggies barking and carrying on. Monday I had let Maggie sleep upstairs in my moms bed since I had to be up 4am that morning. The little girl was dropped off and was here for a couple hours before she spilled milk on her clothes lol. So I ran down in the basement to throw them in the dryer. Little did I know my mom had let Maggie out of the bedroom. When I came up there stood the little girl petting Maggie but I looked under Maggie where she submissive pee'd. Something she only does with little girls and men. I didn't make a big deal out of it just went and cleaned it up. To my surprise Maggie did really well with the girl. She didn't bark or growl or whine which are her usual only responses to girls her age. I kept close tabs on them both and always carefully supervised pets and all of that. I could tell Maggie was very unsure but she allowed the little girl to do as she pleased. I was over all surprised and pleased at how well Maggie did honestly. Today is going to be alittle different. When the little girl won't be here for anouther hour so Maggie has been up all morning with me. And Maggie tends to bark like she's a bad @$$ when people tend to come in the door. I also am not sure how she will respond to the little girl coming in the door. Since the other morning she was already here before Maggie got up. So I plan to just put her on her leash and correct her (like I always do) if she gets overly upset. Who knows it may go fine. And I want to make it clear Maggie May has NEVER EVER bit or even tried to bite anyone ever. She just has a growly bark. And I just don't want to risk the little girl getting huggy with her too soon and Maggie reacting which like I said she has never done. But Im just cautious. BUT lol I do think this is good therapy for Maggie. I am hoping if she can learn this little girl is niceand is not a threat. Maybe that will help with other little girls in the future. Gotta love those emotional dark past issues lol.
