Today, I walked up to KijÚ and pet him!  This is a major step for us.  Up until now, I could only pet him if he was on leash, tucked safely in his crate, or in the car.  Today, as I headed to the dining room, he got up and walked into the dining room ahead of me, where he usually hides under the table if we are walking by.  Instead, he stopped and turned to look at me.  I approached him with my hand out, and he stayed!  I pet him a long time.  Then I got up again, walked away, came back, and pet him again!  And a third time!  This is the G R E A T E S T step he's taken since we got him in May.

This is a key characteristic of Chows to which I was very attracted. They do not treat every stranger as a saviour as most other dogs do. One has to prove oneself before being accepted by the Chow.
