What a wild couple of weeks since Gay's last update!
Gay has been spayed and it slowed her down for less than a nanosecond. You would never know she has an owie on her tummy, other than the bad haircut. She's a little itchy but that means she's healing! She was quiet popular at the vet clinic. They called her a "cute little peanut." Suprisingly, our little drama queen has taken this whole "operation-thing" in stride and acts like she spent the day at a spa!
Gay found out how much she LOVES blizzards! Last Friday, we got clobbered with 21 inches of snow and Gay has decided to be a Siberian Husky! She bounds through the snow piles like a squirrel hopping across a nut filled lawn. Gay loves to chomp snowballs! Fetching snowballs in a blizzard is great fun, even if they are really hard to see! Everything about snow is fun to her. She tunnels, digs, eats, rolls, romps and generally has a blast in it.
Gay is completely housetrained. We haven't had any accidents in the house in several weeks. Our other dog, Shane, is now marking stuff up, and we hope having Gay spayed will put an end to his Diva-like behavior. Gay thinks Shane is cute, but needs to get a grip.
We have Gay crate trained. Some of you know that I have a dog biscuit business in our home and Gay thinks she died and went to heaven. Anyhow, we toss a handful of little "bait" treats in her crate and she goes in and hunts them up. She now knows she's going to get a treat when she goes in her crate, so she races us to the crate and if the door is open, flings herself in so hard that she's actually moved the crate a few feet across the tile floor! Can you say "Food Motivated?"
We also think Gay would make an awesome Fly-Ball or Agility dog. She LOVES to catch toys out of the air and runs after them very quickly. She is quite agile and light on her feet. She is so good at catching tennis balls now that we can throw them pretty far or in a strange way and she deftly plucks them out of the air without even looking like she made an effort.
Gay is going to come back to my work place this week. The gals in Activities really like her so she is going to spend the day in the Nursing home entertaining the old folks. She really enjoys that, and the residents love her. Life is good when you're a 6 month old cutie-patootie!
