new girl



We have a new girl. Baloo is showing her off.

Silence is golden,
Duct tape is silver.

I've decided to name her Audrey. She just had a vet visit, and other than being a few pounds lighter than normal, she's quite healthy.

When you decide to adopt an adult dog, you know you're going to be dealing with an unknown past, but you accept them, warts and all.
Audrey is resource guarding. I've dealt with it before, so am not overly concerned about the long term, but she's giving me a headache at the moment. She's attacked Grizz-Bang once over food, and Baloo has felt her wrath twice. She hasn't gone overboard and tried to cause real damage, or at least I haven't found any broken skin. Just lots of noise, and the victim has soggy spots on their hair. She also insists on being in or out a door in front of Baloo.

She's never had much chance to interact with other dogs except through the kennel fence, and they said she had not been indoors, so has a lot to adjust to. More than the rest of us anyway. She's had no episodes of peeing or pooping in the house, but I've been taking her out frequently, even during the night.

We'll all get sorted out and she'll learn to fit in. She's super sweet with humans, and gets to meet the grandkids this evening.

Silence is golden,
Duct tape is silver.

the kids are here and she acted like she's known them forever but hadn't seen them in a very long time. She seems thrilled to have kids in the mix!
