 Milk Dud and the Rescue's

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Tonight when I went to the cage where Milk Dud, Jack and Luna live to see if they were awake I opened the cage door. To my surprise Milk Dud just can right to me, crawled on my arm and let me walk away from her cage and take her in the kitchen. She was still a bit nervous but just crawled around on me looking around and checking things out. I did not even have any treats on me. She just came out and to me without any bribery. Of course I had to rewatd her with a treat once we got into the kitchen. I was so excited I could hardly stand it.

But that's not even the best part. After I had Milk Dud out my husband went to their cage and opened the door and low and behold LUNA came out of the cage and crawled onto my husband. After she went back into the cage JACK did the exact same thing.

After 1 1/2 years I cannot believe we have finally gotten to this point. It's the day I've been waiting patiently for. They trusted us and did it all on their own.

My biggest surprise is Luna because she is the most timid, scardest of the three and runs from almost all human movement so believe me when I tell you she not only did this once but Three (3) times. No treat bribery involved at all. Complete trust and I still can't believe it happened.

These gliders have never left the comfort of their cage on their own before and tonight we got to enjoy it for the first time. It's like watching your child take their first step.

I am just ever so thankful that my patience and my daily routine paid off and I think my rescue's are finally starting to trust me and my husband.

Remember everyone who questions whether or not your glider will ever bond with you that they may not do it right away but with love and patience, constant human contact and routine and some treats here and there that it will happen one day. Just love them with all your heart until they feel comfortable and feel trusting.

My News
My husband bought me a 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic motorcycle, brand new and I just love it. I took the Motorcycle Riders Safety Class and I ACED it. Scored 100% and beat out every man in the class. I felt so proud when the instructor announced it to the class and surprised me with the news and my temporary liscense. Hubby and I have made quite a few road trips together, me on my Vulcan and him on his Goldwing. The feeling of the freedom that comes with riding is just so wonderful. This is my stress reliever and everyday I can't wait until the next time I can get on my bike and go.

My Bio
I am 52 years old, have three children, have been married for 23 years to my wonderful husband Ed. I have a son who's 29 and lives in MA. I have two daughters 21 and 16 who are at home. I love to go motorcycle riding with my husband. We have a great time together and sometimes get away for a weekend here or there to try and rekindle some romance in our relationship. I'm an assistant delivery sales manager at an auto parts store. It can be very stressful and sometimes feel more like a babysitter than a boss. My favorite place to get away to is the mountains for some hiking, horseback riding or just some site seeing of the wildlife and scenery.
