The girls had their vet appointments for their overseas screening visits, and it was both good and bad. The good is that Giada’s heart murmur looks great, and that she is in great shape. The vet cleared her for temperment and said that she will be a wonderful family dog and great with our kiddos.
Then we went on to talk about Harley. Her health is fantastic, and she is a sweet sweet dog. Sadly now came the bad news, she was not cleared for temperment. The vet feels that after the abuse she suffered from my Ex and the fact that she is so shy now that she would not be able to handle to huge transition. She wasnt cleared.
After spending the weekend putting alot of thought into what to do, I was able to find a friend of mine who is in love with Harley and would welcome her into their home. Harley is well known at their house and gets along well with their dog. This friend has swooned over Harley for years and I know that she will be well loved and taken care of there.
This was a very difficult decision, but Harley has made leaps and bounds in coming out of her shell in the last two years and I hate to have to leave her behind at all. I know she will be happy there. I know that this is the right decision. She joined her new home last weekend, and I have been going to visit her every day just to make sure that she is adjusting well. She is being spoiled and pampered!
Im going to miss her like crazy, and Giada already misses her. Its never easy to have to chose to leave behind a family member.
This year I really didnt have any reason to complain. Really. I didnt have to work, or have school to go to the very next day, so it worked out in my benefit. However, I despise having to go around and change all the clocks. Its rather annoying.
Thankfully the clock in my bedroom will be correct again, since I didnt change it from last years DST. Its kinda nice not to have to adjust the time in my head. (And before everyone gets their panties in a bunch, its a digital clock that I just cant figure out how to set!)
Meanwhile, someone apparently told the dogs that the clocks needed to be changed because they were on track with the new DST dinner time. Waiting by the door and staring at us longingly for their chow. Silly puppies! I havent mentioned the dogs in awhile, I guess baby fever made the four legged ones seem less interesting to write about.
Harley is doing great, still a double wide and we are seriously trying to keep her on her diet and trim her down. She is still the sweetest dog I have ever met in my entire life. And really naughty. The other day I went to go and say hi to them, and couldnt find her. She was INSIDE the dog bed. She had clawed out the stuffing and crawled inside the shell of the bed. Silly girl.
Giada is finally starting to slow down. The little energizer bunny is begining to show her adult side. She is much more patient and will actually just lay down and snuggle with you. She loves to play and will rough house like a crazy girl, but when its done and over she just wants to throw her head into your lap and cuddle. She also does the funniest thing, if you are sitting on her level she will start backing up to you and will plop her hiney into you lap. Yes sir, my 80lbs Dobie thinks she is a lap dog! What a spaz!
The upcoming weeks bring shots and vet visits for them both as we get them prepared to head to NewHome. What a trip that will be!
I suddenly realize that its an hour later than I thought and my computer clock is wrong, so now I gotta run!
What type of animals do you have? Do they have any funny quirks?
I am always amazed at the bond that dogs have with each other. These two have been attached since the day I brought Harley home. Its almost as if they are soul mates, and it is heartbreaking when you have to separate them. Harley whimpers and Dylan, well he screams like he is being tortured. Its so sad.
If ever one is getting into trouble, the other is never far behind. They snuggle together, and share their dinners. Its so sweet!
Dog love is adorable.
Harley is my sweet girl. She is incredibly shy but will give the softest and most gentle kisses of any dog you will ever meet. She is so cute at the Dog park and likes to follow me around like a little duckling.
The other day she was snuggling with me in bed and “forcing” me to pet her, when she suddenly jumped up and ran towards the kitchen. I followed her, of course. Then I see what the sudden need for a stroll was….a small piece of chicken had hit the ground! Talk about having some ears!
