Arrival Story: I fostered Darcy for PAWS in Woodville, TX. She was found as a feral pup with her siblings and mother. PAWS rescued her and she had developed some fear issues. Being a trainer we decided to take her on and make her shine!
Bio: Darcy arrived on 9/21/2010. She is officially home!! We drove to Allentown, PA where she was flown from Louisana with Pilots and Paws!! These people are truly angels in the sky!! Darcy did so well traveling in a small plane with strangers and other dogs. We feel truly blessed to have her in our lives.
Mom woke up and fed me and Grunt. Then we took a ride. Turns out mom took me to the vets office. OOOOhhhh NOooooo!! It wasn't Dr. Mounts day so I had Dr. Wiseman. Mom told them before we got into the room that I'm scared and to be quiet and no hands over the head. Sure enough the tech came in and there went Grunt. He sat and gave his paw in his usual hello greeting! :) Dr. Wiseman looked into my eyes and said, yup, there's an infection. She didn't see any scratches and said she didn't want to stain (WHAT??) my eye. That it would be alot for me to handle. Besides, she said, she would give mom the same medicine. We left with drops for me and Grunt got plenty of hugs so he's good! I weighed in at 66.7 pounds. Lost a couple of pounds! :):) Got home and dad closed our gates to the front yard. Yea!! We went and sniffed like crazy while mom and dad were rolling the fencing onto the trailer. Then mom AND dad got ready for work. Guess me and Grunt got the house tonight!! House party!! :):) Woooop Woooop!!
Mom picked us up from the kennel and she noticed I had yellow gunk in the corner of one eye. Hmmmm. Well I've been home a couple of days now and they eye gunk is still there, nasty yellow! Mom said she's gonna take me to the vet. I did have fun at the kennel while mom and dad were on vacation. Nancy told mom that me and Grunt were playing hard. I was getting slammed into the fence and barking! Nancy's husband said, is that the dog that never barks? Sure enough I was the loud mouth! :):) Just about the entire ride home from the kennel I was standing looking out the window! Mom was thrilled! Mom and dad finished fencing the front of the yard to the playground and the back yard. We've got so much room to play and sniff in now! I'm all over the bushes, there are critters in there! Mom was weeding and I was chasing little birds! :) Bath tomorrow, mom put on our dose of flea/tick meds. Now if only I could get rid of the crust in my eyes!
Mom had to go to town, so after our walk she loaded me and Grunt up and away we went! She stopped at the post office and brought out a huge box. Then we went to the park at the lake. Mom said, come on guys! And we went for a walk around the lake! I sniffed 3/4 of the way! There is one section where you walk close to the road, cars scare the bejesus out of me, and I got nervous. Then at the bottom end of the lake there is a loud waterfall, don't like that either. But once we got back on the grass beyond the falls I was nose down sniffing all over again! We got back to the truck and I jumped right in smiling the whole time! Mom said she was soooo proud of me. I'm getting brave!
