Arrival Story: Mommy was looking for an Australian Shepard when she had come across me. I was supposedly 1/4 Australian Shepard and 3/4 Great Pyrenees so Mommy took the bait and drove 5 hours out to meet me and my siblings. When Mommy asked about my Daddy the lady started to describe him and Mommy found out that I had no Australian Shepard in me at all, but Mommy had already fallen in love with me and took me home anyways. On the way home Mommy had been pulling ticks off of me. When we got home I got a bath and my pads shaved so that Mommy could introduce me to Grandma and Auntie. I had purple ribbons in my hair and was already bigger then most of the dogs there but they all still loved me.
Bio: I love when Mommy dresses me up. She paints my nails, puts bows in my hair and buys me new collars all the time. I love prancing around and showing off when I am all done up. People think I am older then what I really am because of my size and are shocked when they find out my age, but that's okay because in the end they all fall in love with me. I also bark at anything and everything, Mommy says I am spotting UFOs or calling in Moose.
I went and helped at a fundraiser for the rescue Mom volunteers for on Black Friday. It was called Santa Paws and there were lots of dogs and people. People were paying to take pictures with us dogs and Mom dressed me up as an Elf and I was a big hit. I took lots of pictures with people for the rescue. Mommy and I were constantly being complimented on how well I was trained because, Mommy would put me in a sit run out of the way show me a treat and I would pose then she would call me to her and give me the treat and leash me back up. All of the other doggies had to stay on their leashes because, they were runners. People were actually asking for me by name it was awesome.
I then got to stay in a hotel with Mom and her friend Shelly and Shelly's dog Tristan. Mom said she couldn't sleep because, I wouldn't shut up...which is true but, there were people fighting above us so I was just doing my job. Now Mom is exhausted and hoping to sleep soon but, I told her she had to update you guys.
Okay so I know we haven't been on much but, for once it's for a good reason. Mom has been busy with Halloween costumes, contest for said costumes, taking us to the park and to the pet store weekly and before that doing a refresher class for my training. We learned Mom and I are really connected like she was having a panic attack and I calmed her down type of connection and the reason why we weren't working well together was because, of my old training. So the new trainer helped me and Mom communicate better. Mom now can read my signals and such and I listen to her better because, she picks them up now.
Well today we went to get CGC certified and sure enough I passed with flying colors but, I had to calm Mom down first. She was on the verge of tears from the anxiety and I couldn't have that. So now I am CGC certified and Mom is sending the paperwork in on Monday but, she is so proud of me.
Monty is doing well...weird but, well. He keeps licking my face. We think it calms him down because, once he is done doing it he falls asleep. He gets a little manic sometimes but, he thankfully calms down. We know it's from his medication but, still it worries Mom.
Sorry to have Missed out on so much and I promise we will be on more often now that things are settling down here.
So you guys knew about my fatty lump in July. We got that removed and then shortly after a new lump showed up on my foot. We didn't worry about that lump cause the vet told us not to. He said it was benign and small and to try to shrink it with an ointment. Well Monty then cut his leg cause he has what Mommy calls old people skin so he was getting his leg cleaned and wrapped daily. He finally healed so Mommy said "You guys get to stay home finally." We don't mind staying home honestly, it's kinda nice we get bye-bye cookies and then we sleep. Plus the cats hate when I am home all day which makes it worth it.
Well the next day was a Saturday and Daddy went to brush me when he found blood. I was bleeding from my girl parts and well guys I shouldn't be bleeding from there cause those were removed when I was 5 1/2 months old. I got a tattoo to prove it too. So Monday Mommy took me to the vet they ran some tests on me and I didn't have a UTI like Mommy was hoping. I was pretty healthy besides the blood thing actually. So the vet said she wanted to put a scope in there and check my girl bits out. She found nothing in there that would cause the bleeding and while I was under Mom had her remove my foot lump. Well she flushed my girly bits just in case she missed something and then called Mommy hoping Mommy would be okay with her cutting me open to explore inside me...Mom said no to that. Well I am on antibiotics and have stopped bleeding for the most part unless I get stressed out then I discharge a fluid but, it isn't blood anymore. So I will be on antibiotics for awhile longer hoping that it fixes it. I have stitches in my foot until next Friday then they come out. Well when they prep my foot for surgery they scrubbed it raw...once the bandage came off it was all bloody so Mommy and Daddy have been cleaning it and making me wear a sock when I go outside.
We have been going to work with Mommy again and probably won't get to stay home by ourselves until my stitches are out. This Tuesday I am starting a refresher class for training because, Mommy and I are going to try to get CGC certified and she said we need the refresher. So at least I have that to look forward to.
