|Scarlett, clean and pretty after her day at the spa.|
1. I have a lot to do when I get back, and
2. I get post-vacation depression that makes me not want to do any of it.
|Barkley is fast with the "sit" if he thinks|
it will get him something, even petting.
|Max's OCD involves an oral fixation. At least when he's got|
something in his mouth he's not screaming. I would encourage
him to take up smoking if I thought it would help.
|Tall, green grass, yellow dandelions, and Barkley.|
Scarlett came back on Friday, but just for a week because her adopter was going out of town and I thought it better for me to have her back. The adopter will be back next Friday and then Scarlett's adoption will be final and permanent. Scarlett went to the groomer while she was away so she's clean, soft, and shiny now although that may not last the week. She did very well with the adopter last week. It's a great home and everyone thinks it's a good match.
I had been keeping Barkley out in the dog yard and the shed with Ochie because Barkley is the only dog around here who could tolerate him. With Ochie out of the picture, Barkley has moved back indoors, which he is very happy about. He runs directly to the house from the dog yard, no leash, and in the morning he runs directly from the house to the dog yard for the day. He and Max are the primary dog yard players now, and Barkley knows Max is crazy but he tolerates him pretty well.
|Barkley and Max in the pasture. Barkley will match any other dog's play style, but|
unfortunately, Max just doesn't know how to play with other dogs.
|Jonesy meeting Vince when he got out of the van.|
|These two shepherd-mix pups came|
on the same transport but they went on
to other foster homes.
His name is Jonesy and he's nice enough but very shy, at least right now. I don't have much, or any, history on him really, but I was told that he just went through heartworm treatment, so quiet time is indicated for him anyway. He met Vince and Scarlet directly, and has met the others through the crate. He's not very big, maybe 45 pounds I would guess, and although he's not a puppy or a senior I don't really know his age.
|Jonesey meeting Scarlett|
|Hunkered down in his crate. He's shy and scared|
but not fear-aggressive. If he just had treatment for
heartworms, some crate time is just what he needs.
