In our first year together,Nadia trained me to enjoy the full shower experience.I obviously wanted her to become a good bather,so initially I put a stand in the shower,took my shower with her,and splashed her,and danced around like an idiot,showing her how much fun it all is.This all happened over about a six week period.
She showed great interest and was very wary of the actual shower stream,so I put her on my shoulder and slowly began leaning her ever so gently towards the stream.
But,Nadia wanted to do this on her terms,so she did something,that to this day,I find quite extraordinary.As I leaned her in to the shower stream she gently grabbed my ear in her beak,and when I went too far,she slowly increased the pressure on my ear,and then,of course,I would back off and she would lighten up.This tactic went on for some time,at least a month or so.
Finally she was in the full stream and loving it.She stopped the ear holding,and from then on takes her whole shower in the full stream,dancing and prancing and 'Singin in the Rain' our favorite bathing soundtrack.
I'm so impressed that she wanted to do something that frightened her initially,but found a way to overcome her concern and enjoy the experience.
AmazIn Beings they be.
................and so it goes.
