To be snuggled in her bed....when she is not doing agility, taking walks or running amuk in the backyard, off-leash park or a field.
Other dogs sniffing her, chasing her or disturbing her when she is in her bed.
Cat toys, especially when they have real fur on them.
Nature's Variety, or anything stinky like chicken livers and hearts.
Chalco Off-Leash Area for sure!
On command to "be sad!" she puts her little face between down on her front paws and looks up pathetically.
Asha came to us starved, scared and horribly hurt. We were asked to foster her because she wasn't thriving at the Nebraska Humane Society and needed a nice home to heal in. She was not using her post-op leg, and they feared she would lose it. We took her in and never could let her go. She is so sweet-natured, lively, smart and loving. It's taken us a whole year to bring her back to her best potential, but here she is. ADOPT A RESCUE!
My name is Brimful of Asha. I was found by the Nebraska Humane Society at the beginning of November 2003. I was starving, and had a dislocated right leg. The Nebraska Humane Society's evaluation stated that either I was thrown from a car, or was hit by a car. They thought that I was just under a year old, between 8-11 months. They provided me with a femoral head surgery, but I had already decided that I was going to disassociate from that leg. Also, the experience I had been through was so traumatic, that I was not thriving in the kennels, and they sought out a family to foster me, and hopefully get me to use my leg. It was a long process to start to use my legs. If someone touched my leg, I would get a little nervous, and lick their hand a lot. Sometimes I would sit or sleep, with my right leg in an ackward position and not even notice. That sort of behavior really worried my people. They gave me a place that was my own in every room. No other animal in the house has that. I took full advantage of that! I slept ALOT. In order to build muscle mass, they found a place in Lincoln called Kenl Inn that had a pool for dogs and a hydro-therapy programs. I HATED it. But, it gave everyone hope to see me using my right leg in the water, at the correct angle, and with good rotation. After a month of hydro-therapy, I really started to drastically improve the use of my leg. On walks, I also improved the use of my leg over a span of 5 months, from 0% to 100%. I almost never favor that leg now, except when it's wet outside with rain or snow I'll lift it up - I don't know why I do that....I just do. I do agility now and I just love my new family and my sister Neelah.
