|I won't haz Smiths?|
Yes, we animal people are an odd lot.
Last Thursday I took home Cotton the adorable baby bunny. The short version is that there were signs, and it had to do with an animal falling into my lap the day before my daughter's birthday - again.
Charlee is here because she shares a birthday with my last two dogs, but even that is a stretch seeing that we only knew for sure one of the dog's birthdays and he was ultimately re homed.
And Finney, well, he fits into the category of "our dogs find us". I had been looking for a dog to work with reactive and aggressive dogs with and there he was, and he has fulfilled his purpose and then some.
Love you Finns..
|I wondefuls. Every day is take me to work day.|
So where the hell you may ask is this going? I bet a few of you guessed it is Meggie.
Meggie didn't come with signs, but she did come at time when my dog is failing. She has done well lately with new dogs and her sweetness really pulls at my heart. Still, her timing is worse than when we fostered rock star Jonas. Sans dog/dog issues, it is almost as if I custom ordered her. I have been saying for years and years that my next dog would be a petite smooth coat Border Collie with a super soft temperament. Meggie sure is close.
Meggie's guarding and issues with other dogs are getting so much better. Right now her worst trait is that she doesn't just jump, she gleefully LAUNCHES at people. I have helped a lot of people with this issue, but I have never lived with a dog who did this before. It is very trainable and I would much prefer a dog who loves people over a dog who did not, beside,she will be a breeze to train to jump into my arms right?
Happy to report that Finn is on the mend but he will remain on leash and be restricted for a few more weeks.
This morning without Finney running Meggie shadowed Charlee on our off leash walk. It was adorable to see and there were a few gasping awww moments for me. This week I admitted to myself that Charlee has some new tumors that are growing and after being a total bitch to the pup, Charlee has kind of decided she kind of sort of likes her.
Please fill in the blank.
The longer Meggie stays here the more likely it is that ____ ________ ______.
Did you aquire your animals with signs?
