Sweet Tina Marie is a wonderful dog. She has come so far and has accomplished so much since she arrived so timid at the compound. She knows all her commands really well, with only the shake not yet mastered. When her handler first got her, Tina Marie needed to be coaxed out of her kennel but she overcame that and subsequently worked her way as well through slipping and sliding as she went into her crate. The towel in front of her crate that helped her has gone now and she does fine with the shiny floor. This past week, she has continued to work with the inmates trying out for the training program. It's a lot of work for the hound with different women practicing commands with her. There were a couple of times when she didn't like being scooped, but with a gentle rub first from the inmate, she was then fine. She is such a sweet and lovable girl.
