Hello again my Tuesday Friends.
This has been a totally different week for us here.
Last Tuesday we had a very frightened Senior Dog show up at our place while all of the 4th of July fireworks were going off.
She could barely walk and was very thin, but she somehow managed to crawl up the tall steps to our back deck.
We tried to get her to go back down the steps to the basement where it would be cooler and quieter but she wasn't budging from our deck. So we move the dog house ( that our dogs never use anyway) over to one corner and sectioned it off with portable kennel pieces we still have since Shadow was a puppy 9 years ago. She ate and drank water and went right in the doghouse and went to sleep.
She almost blind in one eye and has early cataracts in the other eye and her hearing isn't the best so you have to speak loudly but not yell. She doesn't like really loud noises.
Part of the reason she could not walk well was her nails were way too long.
So we trimmed them up and she now sprints around the yard when we take her out .
She has moved to the basement and is totally house broke. Which is fantastic!
A good flea bath and a few meals and she is a totally different dog.
There are the required drinks for this week... her water in the square ice cream container and Bob's coffee. This was our little after bath rest on blankets in the shade while she dried off. She didn't like the whole bath thing at all but we managed to get it done.
Here she is stealing treats out of Bob's pocket LOL!
I have posted on all of the local lost pets websites and called all of the local vets and left my info in case someone is looking for her. I think she has been on her own for awhile and has a few minor injuries from it.
I will be taking her to the vet tomorrow for good check up.
We haven't introduced her to the other animals yet until we are sure she is not ill or will be leaving to go home.
Here are too more photos of her today after she is all dry and looking good... and begging for a treat after her duty walk :)
We started off calling her Liberty but she would not respond to that at all. Then Bob called her Lady and she turned her head and her ears perked up . So now we call her Lady and she responds every time.
