Here is our latest update on Morgan. This weekend she had her first experience with visiting with a new family and I have enclosed new pictures of her time down on the farm. We needed to go out of town so Morgan went to visit her friend, Truit. She was pretty nervous the first night, had a little oopsie on their rug, but all was forgiven when she settled in. Her doggie bed was her safe place, but as the time wore on she ventured out to inspect the house and all of the animals. She and Truit were best buds, but she shared her sleeping arrangements with Louie the cat. They spent their days outside playing and inspecting the other animals. Morgan even ventured out to meet the family horse. I was told she never bothered the chickens or ducks and was a real trooper helping out in the garden. Most of all it was just a great experience for her to get outside and meet new people and dogs. She really needs to learn she can trust people again. She is such a sweetheart. Of course when we got home and she was reunited with Jade, she was all play and attitude. It was great to see her so bouncy and comfortable enough to run and boss Jade around. We have all settled in for the week now, ready to relax again at home. But this next weekend will bring the newest challenge - It's Family Reunion time at the cabin! Stay tuned for our latest installment of how that all went next week!
Sponsored by: Keith and Sally Carlson Hi all. Here is Morgan. She is a very serious puppy mill dog that came up from MO in April. She has been with us for 3 weeks now and still runs from people in fear. She is about 2.5 years old. She is very timid and panicky around loud noises or sudden movement. She is not quite house trained yet. She had 8 week old pups (Levi, Wrangler, and Guess) that came with her and her belly is still dragging a bit. She weighed in at 60 pounds. The picture of her under the kitchen table is how we see her most of the time. It is a safe spot for her, as is her doggie bed. When she runs to it she will lie down and let me approach her, but she is very frightened. If I get down on her eye level she is more willing to let me touch her. She definitely has to be in an enclosed yard or on a leash or she will run.She has the sweetest personality. She is starting to blossom outside now. She loves to run and is an enthusiastic squirrel hound. She likes to be outside and she likes to dig! Morgan will definitely have to go to a home that has another dog, as she has no clue what dogs are supposed to do. For her, it is just going to take some time for her to build up that trust in people again. But she is a very loving and gentle dog. She fits in anywhere and has no aggression or resource guarding issues and she likes our cat as well. She will make some family a very good pet, but they will need patience and understanding in dealing with her fears. She is a beautiful dog.
