I was feeding Elena dinner tonight (leftovers from lunch). At some point I handed her a french fry. She bit the fry in half, then very deliberately took the other half and set it on the floor and pushed it towards the dog. The dog ate it.
This is HUGE for her. We have never seen her share anything before. She knows that if she is finished with her plate the dog gets her leftovers, but she normally keeps the dog at arm's length away while she is eating because she doesn't want him to eat her food. In this case though, she continued to ward off the dog and ate quite a bit more (she wasn't through eating). It was also a french fry - a food she likes.
For her to share food is completely unexpected.
Also tonight she gave Juliana some nice pats and even hugged her several times of her own volition.
This was also completely unexpected.
It was nice to see her sweet side coming out and her be nice to her sister for a change.
