She is a sweet, sweet, SWEET dog....give her a couch cushion to lay on and she wont move for 2 hours. She met kitties at the feed store, totally ignored them. She met a few dogs, totally ignored them, too. She has met my Leeroy, as well as my pug (Noke)...and guess what? She ignored them as well!
. Of course, little miss mellow also has ZERO interest in any toys, either. We are going on short walks (about 10 minutes each) around the neighborhood a couple times a day, because anything longer really seems to irritate her knee. I'm also trying to find someplace she can go swimming for a somewhat reasonable price. I found someone I thought would work, but apparently the big bad pit bull scares her. *sigh*
She had a half-assed bath yesterday because she needed it desperately. She wouldnt let me put cotton in her ears, so I just avoided her head entirely. While she wasnt exactly fond of the bath, she listened quite well and didnt give me any fuss whatsoever. She also hasnt fussed at all with her daily ear cleaning, or topical antibiotic, even though I know it hurts her.
She seems to have a bit of separation anxiety, and I dont blame her. She seems to NEED to see people, so I've set up a second crate in the living room so she can be out with us when she can't be out LOOSE with us (I don't trust my Sophia around her at all.) I made the mistake of leaving her in my newly remodeled first bedroom, out of the crate while she ate, and she decided to shred the wall at the door frame. Oops..good thing my better half is quite handy around the house!
I will try to get some more pics of her in the next couple days...she is such a pretty thing!
