I'll try to make this short but it's real complicated. I got Martini when she was 6 weeks old and I am POSITIVE that no-one has hit her (she never even gets yelled at). She's loved more than you can imagine and spoiled wrotten. Here's the problem...she is so overly submissive that I feel sorry for her. I have to coax her out from under the bed a gazillion times a day to make her spend time with us. I get her in my bed and she jumps down to get under it. She's very sweet, extremely obedient and docile with everyone (even babies). She was always submissive but it's gotten worse in the last year (she's 2). I've read up on this subject and tried everything suggested (like letting her always win in tug-o-war) and my vet says to ignore her because when I talk too sweetly she may think she's doing good hiding under there. I'm considering begging my husband to let me get another BT because she seems to like having her sister (Maggie) around when she comes to visit. Does anyone have a BT that acts this way and do you think a 2nd one would help her? I really feel sorry for her and I just want her to be happy although I really wish I could make her want to be in my lap and attached to me more. Please throw some advice my way!
I've attached a few pics since we're still new.
