shes here!!! introducing....
« on: December 04, 2005, 05:25:49 PM »
since some of you are expecting this post... here we go! (and forgive me, but the dog forum is down now, so this is where i am posting it...)

ever since i lost mya a little over a month ago, i've missed having a second dog in the house - until now!


willow is here!! willow is my new "foster" -- she is an 8.5 year old female b/t, cropped dobe bitch who was abandoned by her second family in a NY shelter. she comes from a big commercial breeder, and is a sweet heart but a little picky with people :)

she also has wobblers and is incontinent and doesnt have many teeth...

so i couldnt resist :) we all know i have a thing for broken dogs :)


willow is currently resting upstairs in the dog bed - shes met the cats and ignored them both after a good sniff, and shes explored the house. i am letting her lay down where she wants right now (trying to remind myself to give her time, she doesnt have to love me yet!), but she comes as quick as she can when theres food involved! she does have some trouble walking and is stiff in the back end, but shes awful cute and adorable!

as soon as i can get good pics, i will! im letting her rest and adjust to the household. bowie is happy to see her but they dont really interact much, which i guess is as good as i can hope for right now :) and i have to think of another name i think - she doesnt really respond to it!

Hi Kim! She sounds like a beautiful girl- I always see past "brokenness" too! I have adopted some fishies & frogs with difficulties, and they do just fine here. Congratulations on your new family member (foster?).

~Paula, who is very much looking forward to meeting you soon (and maybe the dogs, too, though allergies would mean a very quick hello!)
Cats: Macky, Nala, Isaac, Zahra
