today I said goodbye to jingle bells. firstly , I'm leaving tomorrow for canada to live a year there and my sister will continue visiting the rescue and stuff while I'm gone. She'll also be in charge of this account. But , not just that , Jingle Bells is getting adopted. A couple , the guy is a doctor, who's dog died a while ago. Theirs was one of 5 applications submitted for Jingle Bells and the rescue deemed them worthy of taking him home. He'll be gone by next week. My sister will pass on her (our) monthyl fee to Lupe a husky/aussie mix who also lives at the rescue and is very sweet. soon , this profile will be hers. Today when I said goodbye to Jingle Bells , I felt proud. Because although our training sessions were few and far in between ,and I'm a complete newbie, this dog has really made a lot of progress. I'm so happy that he's better behaved now and hopefully won't give his new owners as much trouble. He's a good boy, and i'm happy he gets to have a home. good luck , my sweet blonde boy!


his story.

a few days ago , I had a chance to speak with the founder of the rescue who picked him up from the steets a few months before and took him to the rescue. I found out he's been at the rescue for about 3 months , that means he was picked up as a 3-4 month old. His neck was slit open (man made wound) and he had injuries (from dog fights) on his paws and ears. All of them were infected. In the neighborhood he was found in , there are suspected dog fighting circles and the lady that runs the rescue has heard about the dog fighters picking up strays and/or stealing people's pets to slit their throats open and let their pitbulls kill them as "training" for the fights. She suspects that is what he was being used for , due to the nature of his injuries. She has no idea if he escaped , or was for some reason discarded by the dog fighters. It took a long while for his wounds to heal , but I can't see any sign of them now. It made me sick when I heard that , how can people be so cruel!?!?!!? My poor boy would have died on the streets if it wasn't for the rescue!!!! I feel sorry for the pitbulls , too , it's not their fault. I think that he was originally someone's pet , he's a very attractive dog , and he just landed in the wrong hands for some reason. I hope all those dog fighters (and other cruel people) burn in hell for what they did to my Jingle Bells and to other dogs too.


better behaving

he is better ,actually. last sunday we took him to a park in a very "green" area of town and walked the circuit of the park with him , it was really long and he's getting fat so he was tired quickly. but he really enjoyed it, and tried to chase the ducks at the lake the whole time. yesterday I visited him again and his jumping up/mouthing is gettin easier to handle. I can sense when he's about to do it now , and I'm taking steps to prevent it. I jog with him , but when he has a toy in his mouth , so he can't bite. and when I see him looking at me like he's about to jump up , I stop and ignore him until he calms down and then we continue. He's also learning that when in doubt , sit. that helps a lot too. He'll mouth at me and I'll yelp and stand still and he doesn't know what else to do , so he'll sit , since he knows that's one guaranteed action that'll earn him a treat. He's the prettiest dog at the shelter and lots of people are getting interested in him. but I don't think the averafge joe can handle him. He's got some issues and he's young and energetic ,he needs someone who understands that and can work with it.
