Greta and Hana have both really bonded to me, and I was not sure this would happen as they were very scared and nervous when they first got here. Greta was the one that let me connect with her first. However, Hana very quickly became my lap dog. Every time I sit in my recliner, she jumps into my lap. They love to sleep with me and are very good about using a pad in the house when they are not able to go outside to do their business.
My daughter just loves sitting with them and playing with them. She even made two little signs to put a treat on, one of which said I Love my sister and the other said I love my mommy. She put the treats down on them and said that the one they ate was the one they said. I know they can't read, but my daughter was so excited doing this. At first Greta would not take either of the treats. It was only after Hana got over to the treats that both took their treats and made their selections.
They get treats in the morning and even though food is in their bowl during the day until they eat it, they do not seem to want to eat unless I am sitting next to the food.
They are still very nervous when new people are around. Due to a medical emergency, I did have a few new people come by and stay for an extended period. Just when I thought they had adjusted to that person, they would make a sudden move, and the girls would start barking as if they never met the person in the room. I feel like there is some trauma that they are slowly overcoming.
They seem very happy, and we are adjusting.
