MAGIC II has come far in her co-operative care for nail trims. It is still slow and steady wins the race, but she is able to have one handler only working on her nail trim. Way to be brave, friend! Magic’s distraction work is also coming along as she bonds with Ashley and her focus has increased because she loves to know what work is coming next.
