Missed it!

Yesterday I was Diary Pick of the Day! The one day I go to the vet, come home and mom goes to work cutting the grass - that took 3 hours! Then she was moving furniture all afternoon, THEN she went shopping came home and the storms came in. Arrrgg!! Missed my moment of glory!

Well let me tell ya'll about my vet visit. I didn't have to wear my calming cap! That is a first! I weigh 62.6 pounds! Not too bad. When they took us to a room mom sat on the lift table while her and the vet tech talked. I was concerned by alright. No white eyes, tail was NOT tucked! Another tech came in and I was the same with her. No problems. Then Dr. Mount came in and of course I was a little concerned. White coat and all... Well, mom sat on the floor and Dr. Mount sat on the lift table. I sniffed the stethescope and then sniffed Dr. Mount. I've never done that before. Even in TX I would just shake and hold my breath. Progress right?! Well after my exam, 2 shots and a snot shot (bordatella) I was done. Really? That easy?? Well mom brought me out to the truck so she could pay the bill. In my crate was yummies! Score!

Got home and mom gave me extra pupperoni - my favs. Then Grunt and I played! Mom cut the dog yard with the push mower. That was funny - she's never done a push mower before! Then she got on the tractor and cut the front yard. That took all day - so Grunt and I played and then layed in the sun!

Mom went shopping and came home just in time for the storms to start - there was loads of lightening and I was alright overall.

 

I Let Dad Touch Me...

This is HUGE! There were storms in the area and Dad was sitting in his chair petting Grunt on his right. There was a clap of thunder and I ran into see dad for some comfort. He had his left arm out and I just walked up to it and let him pet me. He stroked my back and chest to keep me calm during the storm. This is so big, you can't even begin to imagine!

Dad called mom at work and she's so proud. When I got done and felt better Dad gave me and Grunt a treat.

 

Company - Gaaaah!!

I was just laying outside minding my own business when I heard the vehicle. Aaaaaaaa.... runnnn...

So I ran in the house to my other hiding spot in mom's room. Her and Grunt were on the bed watching tv. Mom said she didn't hear anything, then dad said, company's here! Well, howdy dooooo........ gaaaaaa....... panic..

They came in the house and there was a little boy with the man. So I ran in the living room and just stood there and checked them out. Mom said I was such a good girl. I was actually in the same room as the strangers... Mom gave them a tour of the house and I kept a close eye on them. As soon as I could I hid back outside. When they left I actually walked out into the courtyard to see them off. Pretty scary, but I got lots of treats! :)

 

Wow!

So mom was on the phone with dad. A storm blew threw real quick. Dad was laying on floor playing with Grunt. Darcy came in and was looking for some comfort. While he was petting on Grunt, Darcy was standing in front of him on the floor. Dad put out his hand and Darcy licked it!! Wow! This is HUGE!

So Grunt got a bath after we went for a walk today. He decided he was going to come outside and play. Well little did he know what I had in store for him.... ZOOMIES!! I took off like a shot, he couldn't catch me! :) So he finally sat in the middle of the yard and watched me go crazy!! I had sooooo much fun!!

We've been playing almost all day! Gonna sleep good tonight!

 

Update after the arrival of Grunt

So I haven't added too much to Darcy's diary since Grunt arrived. There is sooo much to write about and bring everyone up to date.

First and foremost, I need to say that Darcy is an amazing dog. I knew it from the first time I saw her hit the floor at Petsmart in Texas. She has amazing survival skills that have made me shake my head a time or two. With that being said I'm so happy to tell you that she has changed.

Not in a bad way either. Darcy has engaged in play with Grunt. Not once in a while, but often. She has picked up toys, chewies and just plain pounced on Grunt. She has really come out of her shell. Karl and I are in awe of her. I'll sit outside in the dog yard and Grunt will stalk her and then pounce. She will toussel him around and run away. He chases and she will turn left or right and make him work for it!

Now when we're in the house it gets even better. I will hear Grunt growling - this means it's playtime. I'll look out the window and see Darcy standing over Grunt (who is laying on his back) on the raised bed. She will mouth him and growl at him - all in play. This is so awesome.

Another thing that has been considered a major change for Darcy is her reaction towards Karl. Before she would look at him white-eyed and get as far away from him as possible. Luckily Karl just ignores her and moves slowly so he doesn't scare her. Well 2 days ago we lost power. I will grilling on the deck. Grunt and Darcy came outside. Karl was sitting on the deck and Darcy stood about 2 feet in front of him. Just looking at him calmly. Karl looked at her and said, Hi Darcy. She just stood there!!! No reaction, just sniffing the air towards him.

Another thing she did with Karl was when he was chasing Grunt outside. He was standing catching his breath and Darcy came up behind him and sniffed his leg. She touched his calf with her nose. Karl stood still and never looked at her.

I really believe that her confidence is growing and it shows!

 

Made mom tear up today.

Understand this, when I took Darcy back to the rescue in Oct '09 because we were moving it haunted me. She would play with Turner and steal his toys. When I brought her up in September '10 the first thing I noticed was that she showed no interest in toys. That to me is so sad. Well today I spied on the furkids playing in the yard. I had bought Grunt a new toy - latex squeeker. Darcy picked it up, walked over to Grunt, squeeked it in his face and ran away looking back. Enticing him to play. Guys, all I can say is wow. I am so happy for so many things today.

Losing Turner was the lowest point in my life, for the first time I feel like I'm climbing out of the dark. And all with the help of another pibble.... :)

Let Me Explain

Yes, Grunt is my furbrother. Mom has his page set up, but because of a glitch in the upgrades she can't upload pictures - yet. Mom tries 2 or 3 times every day to get his pictures loaded.

Let me tell you about Grunt. He's 4 months old, white and brindle male American Pitbull. Mom and dad were actually looking at some other pups in rescue when they met Grunt. His rescue name was Marine - they changed it to Grunt. He and his siblings were brought to recue on Memorial Day weekend (we think) and the rescue named them all after the armed forces.

He's pretty mellow overall. He's working his magic in this house and doing a darn good job at it. It took me a couple of days to really warm up to him, but now we play some! If I'm in my bedroom he comes in and jumps up on the bed to get me to play.

As soon as Dogster will allow mom will put up pictures of him.

 

Play Time!!

Mom came home last night and I met her at the gate like always... She greeted me and then went inside to get Grunt. Grunt came outside and went potty, but then he came running up to me! So I decided why not! We played for about an hour! It was great. He chased me, I chased him and mom just sat in the chair giggling! It was sooooo much fun!

Got up this morning and went outside. Mom brought Grunt out and he went potty and we played for about 5 minutes. Grunt was still tired and wasn't really awake!

Mom is hoping tonight when she comes home that we play again. My tail is up and wagging alot now!!

Oh yea, I almost forgot. Dad took me and Grunt for a walk yesterday! This is like the 3rd time dad walked me without mom around. I was really calm and happy to go for a walk. We didn't go very far but still, we went.
