Princess came into RAGOM with a past of being loved, trained in basic commands and the happiest, brightest foster I have had. She lived with several cats and almost prefers their company to that of another dog. Meeting my residents was uneventful. Sniff, sniff, and off to find something else to see. Her first supper must have been unnerving, as she wanted to eat but was unsure about the other fur butts. By breakfast, she knew her place and was ready to dine with the family.
When it is time to potty, she will let out this tiny, and I mean tiny, whine. Once her duties have been done, she sees no need to stay outside. Talk about a couch potato! I have found that a strong, but gentle, "NO" keeps her off the furniture. Respectful of the baby gate, hasn't barked, doesn't jump. Not much of kisser, no storm anxiety (there was a storm last night and she slept through it). Before her spay last week, Princess went swimming with her friends. She is quite the swan...very graceful. Loves to walk with a Gentle Leader.
Weighing in at 56# she perfect for her petite size, H/W negative, UTD on shots and is on H/W & F/T. Princess Grace loves children of all ages, best guess to her age is 3 or 4, adores her human companions and would do well in a family with or without another dog.
The pictures do not do her justice, as she isn't always laying down!
More to come on this precious girl.
When Princess was first surrendered, the SO 'thought' Princess was 7 or 8...as she was the second owner, she was not sure. After her first vet appointment and then her spay, 3 vets think her age to be between 3 and 4.
Princess spent Saturday at the IA RAGOM picnic. She seemed to meet all of the humans and enjoyed the other fur butts, and fell asleep within a few blocks after leaving the picnic. Safe to say that "fun was enjoyed by all".
Today was a day of mixed emotions...FM's not Princess. We went on a walk with all of the other housemates in the morning. A family was coming to meet Princess Grace. We met, we talked, Princess shared her love and I knew she was going without me. As hard as it is to watch our precious fosters move on, we have to remind ourselves that this is why we foster. As RAGOM reminds us, Rescue, Rehome, Repeat.
Princess will complete a wonderful, loving family with her joy and love.
