If you need any assistance with training, just let me know
I'll let the rescue know; we may take you up on the offer. And thank you for making it BTW.
Ms. Hope is home and doing well. Her stump drained and the surgeon left it a little open to ensure it doesn't fill up again, but as of now it doesn't look like it has/will (hopefully!). She's chiliing on the futon at the moment. Cody's getting his TPLO surgery today so she's flying solo and I think loving having the run of the house.
I have a few pics, I'll try to upload them in the next few days; it's been a bit crazy around here the past 2 months with all the vet runs and dog excitement... I'm looking forward to it calming down with Cody in the crate for the next 6 weeks and Ms. Hope healing.
As for her training, it's going well. She is really the most stubborn dog we've encountered, but we just patiently wait and she eventually does that which was requested. We're also working with the rescue to set up some play dates for dogs they think will be compatible with her to expand her social circle. We won't have those for another week at least given we want her amputation site to fully heal (and not fill up again), but all in all, I'd say she's through the worst of it.
And as I mentioned before, she's got such a sweet nature. It's really amazing to see her come out the other side so to speak. She's happy to see you and just wants to have the easy life these days (and who can blame her).
So I'll keep you all updated and will try to post pics in the coming days. Thank you all for the kind comments. My wife and I are just happy we could help her!
