It's been a hard week with too many tears to count. I've known for about two weeks that she would be picked up on Tuesday to go live with her new adoptive family. Knowing she was going did not make the day any easier. This is my all time fave picture of her.
Or maybe it was this one....
I can't resist a smiling dog picture.
Girl 8 originally came to me the first time quite overweight and I had strict instructions not to give her very many treats. Our last weekend together, I treated her with rawhide and told her how much I would miss her and how much I enjoyed our time together. When she left on Tuesday, I had no idea when the next dog would come. I was only hoping I would have another one before Christmas.
Wednesday morning, I was looking forward to a visit from my dear friend De. I knew it would be a good day. Early in the morning, I saw this pretty sight...the sun shining through these simple plant cuttings.
This pretty pair have been visiting for weeks, but they take flight at the slightest sound. I was finally able to get a picture of them. If you know what they are called, please tell me because I want to email this picture to my family in Texas.
Not long after De arrived, the phone rang. I wasn't going to answer, but I heard a familiar voice on the machine so I picked up..."Deb, this is an emergency, are you able to take a dog in a couple of
Meet Girl 11:
She is 6 years old and she is a working dog for a blind person.
This is the first day she came to me. She was exhausted. She was flown in from a rural part of QLD and then she spent a fair bit of time at the Vet having tests done.
Poor girl had a very busy day. She tucked herself in early with Bunny and then all I heard was snoring after that!!
On the second day, she was more alert. She is very calm and has not barked at all. She just loves to stay close to me. She is the most affectionate of all the dogs so far.
I expect to have her for around a month while her health issues are being sorted out. Her person
has had to leave her behind and fly home.
She is doing a great job of mending my broken heart. Welcome, Girl 11! xx Debbie
note: I've always called Girl 8 by that name. She was Girl 8 AND Girl 10. Girl 9 was a Black Lab and her photos are posted too. So, this really is Girl 11.
