Play. Play. Play.
Not being loose and able to play. She's on semi-limited activity!
Anything, really, that she can fit in her mouth!
See "favorite toy". LOL
Pebbles was dumped at the Grant Co. shelter in Moses Lake, WA.
They called us because her back leg was deformed and thought to be fractured.
It turns out that it's just malformed (may have been damaged as well) and she may need surgery at some point but we are just not sure yet (Aug. 5, 2010).
Other interesting items about Pebbles include her being a double dapple which has caused her to have a blue eye and subsequent defective pupil on that side; people need to know what they are doing before tossing a male and female dog together for breeding purposes, sadly, too few people ever do and we wind up with horrible defects and sick animals as a result of ignorance in breeding practices.
Pebbles was with us for something over 3yrs. Due to increasing instability and aggression, we made the decision, with the help of our vet (who knew her very well) to let her go to the bridge.
When people breed Dappled (or Merle) dogs to other Dappled (or Merle) dogs, it is a fair bet things will go wrong.
Although Pebbles had fewer physical defects than some Double-Dapple (or double-merle) dogs, she had mental defects that were only getting worse with time.
Pebbles was spending more and more time in her crate because she would lash out at other dogs, attacking them very aggressively. She could go from playing to attacking them in the blink of an eye. It was, sadly, very confusing and disturbing to them, and harmed them physically as well.
Pebbles was deteriorating, and she started biting us more and more as well. She had bitten our grandchild in an unprovoked manner - I was sitting right beside her when Pebbles bit her. But still we kept trying.
However over the past few weeks (November 2013) it was become clear Pebbles was unhappy and her quality of life was fading quickly.
With heavy hearts we let her go to the Rainbow Bridge where she's no longer suffering.
Pebbles took a part of our hearts with her when she left and she is dearly missed but at the same time, we are happy she's finally at peace.
Life is just not fair, and it doesn't get any easier :-(
