My life has been forever changed.
I used to live a sad life of having litter after litter of puppies. But thanks to a bunch of hard work by some very special people, I ~ along with several of my friends ~ made it into rescue.
Even though I’m feeling nervous, I can already feel so much love. Everyone keeps telling me how beautiful and loved I am.
I’ve been given a bath and a soft bed. I’ve met some really nice Bulldogs who will be my new roommates. They all welcomed me with gentle sniffs.
Today, I’ll be having a spa day and some work on my “ouchie” feet. I think I have what they call crate foot. My nails are long, toes splayed and pads are soft and mushy.
I’m excited to visit Dr. Larsen, so she can give me a good once over and officially put those baby-making days behind me.
I’m as sweet as they come and already loving my new life. I’m so thankful to everyone who’s made my dreams come true.
9/19/22 Update: It’s been one whole week since my life changed for the better. And what a week it’s been!
I was pretty scared when I first arrived at my foster home. I’m working hard at gaining my confidence. I still don’t like going out opened doors, but I will come back in all by myself.
I’ve discovered toys and I really like them. I’ve already picked out my favorite.
My most exciting new find has been the couch. I really like it. I like it so much that I’ll bark all night unless I’m allowed to sleep on it. Yep, you heard that right. I no longer sleep in a crate. Only couch life for me.
We also started this thing called leash training. It’s overrated. I’m fine with being carried.
To end my first week, I got to go visit the infamous Doc Larsen. She’s a magician. She knew everything I needed to make me feel brand new. Soon, I’ll no longer have ear and tail infections. Plus, she’s going to end my baby-making days and fix my hernia. Woohoo! Only the good life from here on out.
9/26/22 Update: Maize’s been in her foster home for two weeks. She’s really starting to settle in and overcome some fears. Loud noises and fast movements still make her nervous.
Accomplishments this week include walking out the backdoor by herself twice. She’s still needing to be coaxed or carried out the majority of the time. She’ll walk back in all by herself every time now.
She’s finally starting to understand treats. We’ve tried all kinds of yummy snacks. Cheese is the only thing she’ll take every time. Yesterday, she ate a Beggin’ strip for the first time. She’s about 75% potty trained.
This sweet girl loves to cuddle and get attention. Her fur is so so soft and she gives the best kisses.
