Good Buddy

Linda wanted to help me with the blog tonight. So, here we are hard at work.

She is recovering very well from her surgery on Friday. I could not have expected her to be doing any better than she is on all accounts. It's been a week since Linda arrived. She is doing so well with potty training. She's actually going right away when I take her out now. I did not really have any expectations of her and that seems to be working well. Every thing we do is an accomplishment. She loves to follow me around to see what I'm up to. She is pretty curious too. Sometimes our fosters never even go upstairs, but she has gone in every room of our house on her own. Even the basement. I couldn't believe she did stairs. That can be a big deal for some dogs. It's impossible to know what kind of living situation she was in before, but we can only guess it was pretty horrible. Even without taking that into consideration, she is just wonderful. She'll be a really great buddy for the person who adopts her. Hopefully it's soon, because there are always more dogs who want to be Fluffy Dogs!

Coton de Tulear

A quick note regarding Linda's breed. The breeder she came from is who said she is a Coton de Tulear. Who knows if this is accurate, but here is a nice video link regarding the breed.


Welcome Linda!

Linda is settling in great. She has found her favorite spot on the couch as you can see. We're very careful to help her down though. She's so tiny that we don't want her to hurt herself jumping down.

On Friday Linda was spayed. She is officially retired from breeding. Yay! What a great story for her. She also had a couple of teeth pulled, but the rest were all cleaned up. She is recovering for the next few days, but looks forward to being spoiled. I've been carrying her around and she gets soft food until her mouth feels better.

We've had her about a week, but I can tell already that she will be totally loyal to her owners. She isn't as scared as when she first arrived. Stay tuned for more progress.
