Our pack of 4 (me, a Dane ***, a Boxer *** and a Deerhound dog) has
been expanded today. I got a call from a friend who asked me if I wanted to
sacrifice even more space to house a throw-away Greyhound-bearded collie
mix expected to litter in two weeks or so. She got knocked up by a
Dobermann or a golden mix (both were present) and the owner didnt want to
pay for anything so he told the vet to put her down. The vet, the friend,
immediately thought of me. I dont know if i should be glad about that. I
said no at first because the last thing I need is another basket case after
taking care of crazy Bubba (a messed up GSD/Rotweiler) for 5 years. But
when I went over to see her i knew she was for me. She really is quite a
goodlooking dog but her belly is so big she looks like a potbelly pig. She
looks like a bearded collie but she has a much thinner, silkier coat and
she is very fast. Even with the belly. Im really gonna have to get busy to
find enough homes for the pups (there are six of them as far we can tell).
Anyway, Lucy arrived a couple of hours ago and the guys have treated her
good so far. She is a bit shy but Ill get her over that. Its really nice
to have a new one come to us The dogs like it to but Mary (the dane) isnt
so sure yet. Trish (boxer) likes everybody except for toy breeds and Mac
(deerhound dog) likes all ***es, knocked up or not. My guess is that she
and Trish will be great friends as they are both 4 and Mary is already 9
and doesnt like all the hyper stuff. Trish is very happy about having
someone to run and play with. Mary is too lazy.
We all went for a walk and Lucy seems to be a very nice, outgoing dog
allthough she has some obedience stuff to learn. Ill get to that after the
pups are gone. The Bearded in her tells her to stay close and the Greyhound
tells her to take off. The poor thing doesnt know WHAT she wants so she
just runs in circles. Very funny. She really does have a lot of energy for
being so pregnant. When we came back she had a BIG nap and was totally
comfortable. She fits right in.
Ill keep you posted.
