Last week B was watering the lawn and offered Athena a drink of water from the hose. Athena was so afraid of the hose. She kept running around it and wouldn't get close to take a drink. When Athena is afraid of new things we show her that we are not afraid. For orange construction signs we have gone up to them and hugged them, talked very gently to the garbage can, and drank from the hose.
Yesterday we busted out the hose again after a walk to see if Athena would take a drink. She went right up to the hose and took a very long drink. B began to water the lawn and Athena decided that she wanted more and more to drink. This turned into quite the water play and we ended up with a soaking wet pooch (there goes the nice smell from her first bath!).
|The many faces of not-so-fearful Athena!|
Like the day Athena pranced around in the sprinkler, yesterday's hose play left us with some HILARIOUS photos. Could Athena make funnier faces? We don't think so!
|What?! A new pink towel? I'm so spoiled!|
|Ok, you can rub my tummy if you insist!|
|Still showing off some pretty crazy faces even when drying off...|
