Beautiful Delila is just a joy. She wakes up so happy and gives the sweetest kisses. She sleeps on the floor by my bed and wakes up with the alarm. She continues to do all her potty business outside and is crated when I am gone.
She has free roam of the house when I am home. She loves to spend time outside in the fenced in yard waiting for people to walk by with their dogs. She will sit in the corner and when someone walks by she twirls and runs along side of them. This seems to be her new favorite pastime.
Delila is starting to learn the command of "come" to come inside the house and she will go nicely into her crate when I toss a treat into her crate and tell her to "kennel". She loves to come up for treats and takes treats nicely out of my hand.
She does not sit on command and at this time she does not want to go for walks. She is very happy and content in the yard, but leaving the house to go for a walk is just too scary for her. I am working on getting her used to a harness. We go outside the front door and eventually make it to the mailbox. Then we turn around and go inside. I am hoping that with time this will improve.
Delila had her spay surgery on Tuesday, April 9th. Her surgery went well and her incision is healing. She is such a good patient and has rarely licked the incision.
Her physical exam findings stated that her pupils were widely dilated, no PLR-pupillary light reflex, but she appears to have some limited vision but compensates very well. (Shhh! Don't mention this to Delila because she can spot everyone and every dog walking on the path behind the house and loves to look out the window.)
Her microchip was very hard to find and it was recorded as not having one. This lucky girl will have a second microchip inserted so that it will be easy to find.
This girl is just a love bug and loves to give kisses and be petted. She also loves to snuggle on the floor. She will need a family that has patience for her as she is learning not to be scared of new things and a home with another confident dog to teach her the ropes.
