All aboard the rescue train! Today I heard my friends Brindleigh and Sugar Puddin’ were going to rescue, and I was not about to let them leave without me. So I quickly threw what little I had in my bag and went with them. We have been friends most of our lives.
My name is Honey Dew and I am 8 years old. I have always lived in small spaces so my walking is not the best. I can walk, I just don’t always see the need. This man was trying to take pictures and I just wanted to lay my big belly on the grass and rest. Maybe I will do better for my next photo shoot.
I met Dr. Larsen today and got bunches of kisses. Everyone said I was just as sweet as my name. I have had a few babies in my day, but doc will make sure those days are over. I have an ear that hurts and a few other aches and pains, but I am sure I will be ready to go in no time.
So do you think your want a mature gal like me to come lay around your house and put my belly on your couch? I think it would be fun!
8/30/20 Update: My name is Honey Dew, and I am new to foster care. I just arrived this week at the Clark’s house. They are super nice. I wasn’t sure of things the first few days, but I’m really starting to enjoy my new digs. I have my own crate, a new clean bed that’s fluffy and 3 humans who let me sit in their lap and rub my belly. I think I could get used to this.
My foster family says I’m a sweet girl and smart too, I’ve already learned how to use the bell on the door to go potty outside. I went down the street for a walk this evening- that was fun. I’ll keep you guys up to date on all the new things I do this week. Love, Honey Dew
6/6/20 Update: I am playing on the patio this morning and loving life. I heard the word “No” this week from my foster mom. I’m not sure why she doesn’t enjoy me pulling the pillows and throw blankets off the couch and chairs. They are so fun to tug. She says I haven’t mastered the word yet, but I’ll keep working on it.
9/20/20 Update: HI everyone! I am loving this cooler weather and being outside for longer periods of time. I’ve been practicing my walking around the perimeter of the fence…I am the patrol dog for the next door neighbor cat and the neighborhood bunny. They like to visit my backyard. I’m scared of my collar and leash and run away when I see it, but I enjoy walking around in the familiar backyard.
I’ve learned how to jump up onto the couch- it’s so soft and comfortable up there, but foster mom says I need to wait to be invited. I have shown my foster family how to tear up my dog bed, blankets and pillows. They were not impressed. This foster family is so nice and patient with me. I’m still super scared of any noise and all movements. But I am getting used to the snuggles and the rubs. My favorite thing to do right now is to get brushed…it feels so good.
My foster family said to ask for any tips related to getting me not to rip and tear up anything I see. Talk to y’all next week.Love, Honey Dew
10/8/20 Update: I wanted to drop in and tell you guys that I am starting to feel more and more at ease. I have claimed to the left side of the couch, and so Foster Mom put my own blanket on that side of the couch since I really like to snuggle there.
I am learning to put my bottom down before I get my breakfast and dinner. My foster mom says the word “sit” and I really think she should say, “COME AND GET IT”… I looooveee to eat. I got to taste pumpkin this week. Have you guys tried it? It’s good.
My foster sister lets me crawl up on her shoulder in the evenings now to snuggle while we are on the couch. It makes me feel safe and calm.
The highlight of my week was visiting a former rescue, Miss Gabby. I went over to the Menard Suites & Spa, where I’ll be vacationing for a few days while my foster parents are out of town. It is awesome… Mr. Menard has Bulldog Happy Hour. Have you ever heard of that? It was so fun and yummy. I got a snack and lots of love. So I can’t wait to visit there later this week for a bit of pampering and interaction with some other girly Bulldogs. I hear they are all very nice. Talk to you next week. Love, Honey Dew
10/20/20 Update: I am loving this cooler weather. Foster Mom is having a hard time getting me inside. I make her use treats to get me inside. Treats, treats… I love treats. I also made an agreement with her that I wouldn’t eat the dirt out of her potted plants if she gave me more snacks, and she agreed. I learned that I really like bananas.
I love to cuddle and snuggle, but I also have a little bit of energy in the mornings. I don’t particularly love the leash, so foster mom and I run inside the house and play outside to get exercise. I also help her do yoga and workout, she likes it when I help her.
I got a new toy for Christmas, Mr. Moose, and I have finally come around to playing with him. I didn’t have toys before my foster home, so it takes me a little while to warm up and learn what to do with them- Foster Mom says I am a good learner and making such good progress.
Today my furball friend came over to play, his name is Bruiser and he weights 10 pounds. He really likes to run fast and fetch balls. I am learning how to play and interact with him. Foster Mom says I am doing well with my interactions with other dogs and that I would likely do well in a home with other dogs.
2/24/21 Update: So glad the snow melted! I was not a big fan of the cold stuff!
Our power is on, we have water and our internet is back… all is good at the Clark House! I am feeling good.
I’m now reviewing applications for my furever home. I enjoy playing with my humans in the morning and then I’m ready for a nap
Hope everyone has a great week!
3/30/21 Update: I enjoyed being outside so much!! Foster Mom could barely get me to come inside. Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!
