It may surprise you, but baby steps aren’t just helpful for humans. They can also help our furry, feathered, and possibly even finned friends. I recently read this story about Ginny, a beautiful dog who had a rough (pun not intended) life until she was rescued, and then met her new guardians.
From the story:
Nick adds that Ginny’s adjustment was “definitely a labor of love,” and that although Ginny was two years old, developmentally she was still like a puppy. “It was a lot of carrying her up and down the stairs, a lot of bear hugs, and just a lot of very calm, relaxing energy,” he says. “It was definitely baby steps.”
