.. I have almost given up with Sera and new people. Its not that she doesn't like people in general.. She loves to see my mom, wags her tail crazy and gives her tones of kisses, same with my dad, but took a bit longer. she also knows Justin, loves him, and is getting to know Natalie a bit better and isnt as scared, although she prefers to sit in my lap instead of hers (if shes with justin, my dad, mom, she doesnt care) I think shes just scared when people come up to her and start to pet her, she back down and trys to get as far as possible away, and then.. if there fingures are there for a while she'll bite 'em, no one has said that it hurts but i hope its only cuz shes protecting me. When shes in some one elses arms - that she doesnt know, she'll squirm. I dont think shes ever biten someone when in there arms.. not that ive noticed. I've tried the treats, for people to give them to her, it didnt do much. I really need her to have people holding her and i vanish, but its a little hard to do that if i am in a store with her and hand her to complete strangers (we dont have that many visitors.. well my mom teaches piano and students come to the house... but many dont take interest in her.. or dont know how to handle the squirmyness) Any suggestion?? I'm at my wits end!
