Kayla is such a good girl and is eager to please. She's a bit shy at first, but she's very affectionate after she warms up. She loves to give kisses, takes treats gently, is good on a leash, rides beautifully in the car and the highlight of her day is to have her tummy rubbed. Kayla loves to play, play, play and has the cutest play bow. She also enjoys playing fetch and splashing around in the kiddie wading pool. Some of the commands she knows are Sit, Down and Stay. In fact, when she was in the shelter's yard and was told to stay, she wouldn't leave the yard until she was released. While showing her at PetSmart, it was discovered that Kayla is quite the talented pup; she catches treats effortlessly. Naturally, we taped her as she caught six treats in a row. Watch her videos to see her play and catch treats. Kayla is friendly with other dogs, but it would be best if she was an only dog or with another dog that is the same size and has the same play level as her. Kayla's play arousal can be easily regulated; in fact, she was used as the test dog when she was at the shelter ... meaning whenever a new dog came in, she was the one who temperament tested them. If you are interested in getting more information, submitting an application to adopt Kayla or if you want to see her during the week, please send an email to crittersrescue@cox.net or call (949) 831-4988.

From Puppy Class. Although, I'm hardly a puppy, Mommy started me in that class to get me out of my shell. It worked.


An update!

Mommy is going to add this to my diary today. I'm too busy resting to dictate this. Take it away, Mom!

I had to take Kayla to the vet yesterday; I could tell she didn't feel very well. I knew that it was her ears again, especially her left one. And I knew it was deep inside too.

When I got there and was checking in at the desk, I was surprised to feel the leash vibrate. I looked down at her and saw that her whole body was shaking violently. Poor baby! She kept moving towards the door and looking over her shoulder as if to say, "C'mon Mom, let's get outta here now!"

Sure enough, she has a mild to moderate ear infection down in there, and the left ear is worse. So antibiotics, ear flush and ointment, then recheck in 10-14 days. She runs when I pick up an ear flush bottle, so wish me luck. :-)

I had told them at the vet that they would have to coax her to get weighed as she doesn't like to step up on scales and boxes, etc. And not to force her if she resisted. She resists being weighed at PetSmart so I haven't been able to weigh her. She's timid so I'm very gentle with her.

I was curious to learn what her weight is now as she weighed 49 lbs. in September. She had put on a little bit of weight while at the kennel, and I could tell that she's put on weight since I got her two months ago, too.

Well, to my surprise, she apparently walked right onto the scale! It's low, I gather, so that must have made a difference.

But hold on to your hats! She now weighs 64 lbs.!

More befitting a boxer/lab mix, I'd say!

I know, I know. Someone I know had thought she was a lab mix, but I never saw it. But another person and I saw a lab several weeks ago that had a less blocky face than a lot of labs--plus it had the same pink patch on the nose as Kayla does--and we could really see how Kayla shared some of its same characteristics.

And one other lady told me she was a lab mix coz she had webbed feet.

Webbed feet? O-K.

Well, Kayla wants me to play with her now, so I better obey. :-)


I'm a happy pup!

Wow, Friday was so much fun. I got to meet one of mom's friends, eat grilled chicken at the Park Bench Cafe and go for a long walk in the park. Then I went to a puppy training class. (I'm no puppy, but it's good to start at the beginning.) I was surrounded by nine other puppies. They were cool. I was happy to be in such a large pack!

Mom says I'm the best dog ever. Even Baxter the cat likes me! I've yet to meet the other dogs in the household, but that's OK. We're taking things slowly.

Life is good.
