Anything Atley is playing with.
Anything I can get my tongue on. I've been very hungry.
I don't walk a lot right now. My feet are really sore.
I'm learning how to smile when asked.
We were on our way home from an appointment on October 13 and were merging onto a main highway from a very busy crossroad. It was pouring down rain. Cars were moving slowly and swerving around what I assumed to be an object in the road, but it was Peaches walking very slowly into oncoming traffic up a merge lane from the highway. Surprisingly, she was not running and did not appear terrified. She was simply moving forward slowly.
We could not stop to get her then and had to drive down the highway and turn around at the next intersection to try to go back and get her. The rain was torrential and it was cold out. As we finally got back to the cross street she was walking towards, we saw that she had made it up under the overpass and was standing next to one of the highway pillars. We pulled over and I got out and called to her. At first she seemed to think she should run and I quickly knelt down and held out my hands to her. At that point, she turned to look at me and you could see the sadness and desperation in her eyes. She walked over to me slowly and sniffed my hand. She looked up at me and the look in her eyes and her expression seemed to say, I have nothing left to lose anymore, please don't hurt me. I picked her up and got her in the car and held on to her. She was shaking and shivering so badly I thought her bones would rattle. I could actually feel the cold coming from her while I was holding her. We immediately drove her to our vet. Peaches was given a bath as she was flee infested and given shots and dewormed. She has obviously had at least one litter. She does not appear to be pregnant at this time, but we're not taking any chances and she is scheduled to be spayed and have a heart worm test this Friday, the 16th of October.
The most heartbreaking thing about her is that when we got her to our vet, and got her dried off, I looked at her feet. Whatever happened to her, she had obviously been walking for days and days. The nails on her feet are worn past the quick and her feet are swollen and raw on the pads and between the toes. At this point, I just keep telling her she's safe and it will be o.k. from now on.
Peaches has now been spayed and has, unfortunately, tested heartworm positive. Luckily, the doctor said that since she is young and otherwise healthy that the heartworm infection has not caused any damage yet and her heart and lungs are strong and healthy. Peaches will begin her heartworm treatment as soon as she is recovered from her spay.

I really don’t understand hoomans at times. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit of different girl, I’m not into being snuggled, kisses make me stop wagging my tail, and the only way I know to communicate is to bark everything I think, feel, or want all the time. I also admit that I’ve had a hard time trying to figure out what my duties are in the pack. I came up with two of them, one is to bark the call at mealtimes and the other is keeping the kitchen counter clean. So, last night mom made her version of chicken fried steak for dinner and as usual, I sat right by Grandma in case she needed assistance with her supper. As it turns out, Grandma could not finish her steak and when Mom cleared her plate and put it on the counter I dutifully followed. As Mom walked out of the kitchen for about 5 seconds, I decided that I would help Mom clear the plate and I stood up on the counter and grabbed the rest of Grandma’s steak which Mom saw me swallow WHOLE just as she walked back into the kitchen. For some reason, Mom found this upsetting and scolded me for it. I mean jeez, try to help someone with the kitchen chores in a timely fashion and all you get is grief. Nonetheless, I will keep up my duties of cleaning the kitchen counter no matter what Mom says even though she doesn't appreciate it.

Guess what guys! I did it before Bailey, Atley or Sophie!
I was the FIRST one to do something gross on the new carpet!
We hadn't been home 10 minutes, and I hacked up a big wad of phlegm on the nice, soft, new carpet!
Dad shrieked, mom slumped her shoulders in defeat.

Dad found out that one of the guys at his office does Schutzhund training and teaches classes.
Now dad's pondering how he could get Atley and I to obedience classes... Not that he really cares if we're trained protection dogs, he's just thinking some "basic obedience" would be nice.
After telling me "no beg" half a dozen times don't I stop begging for 3o seconds?
When I try to get my head in the trash can cupboard and you tell me to "get out of there!!" don't I listen to you once I've decided I can't find any good snacks?
I think I'm trained just fine. Dad, did you ever consider that maybe your expectations are unrealistic?
