Updates

Maria says Foster Dad is way behind in his updates on her activities. Maria has been busy the past several months. In both May and June, she traveled up north to the family cabin. She did well each time on the 4-hour car rides.

While there in June, we worked up to going on long walks. We started slow and went for short distances. By the end of our stay, she was able to walk a little over 2 miles round trip to the highway and back. Maria loved to check out the new sights and smells, especially those wild daisies.

For the 4th of July, she traveled to a friend's farm to escape the noise of the fireworks. Maria does not seem to be as bothered by the fireworks as the resident dogs. We were able to do some walks on the country road and a trail between some fields before the really high heat and humidity set in.

Maria was spayed at the end of May and recovered beautifully. I guess my working remotely from home really helped that recovery. She celebrated her 4th birthday early in June. And now she has a family that is very interested in meeting her. Keep your paws crossed that the meetings go well for Maria and the family!  

Thanks for following Maria and her journeys!

Welcome to Maria 20-067. Maria came into RAGOM from an auction sale in Missouri on March 21. Maria is a beautiful dark red girl that will be 4 years old in June. We were able to get a quick wellness exam in before all of the COVID-19 stay-in-place orders took effect. Maria is up to date on all her vaccines and weighs in at just over 50 pounds.

Foster Dad has mostly been working from home since Maria arrived. So this has made it very easy to bring her into the home. We have only had a few accidents, so house training is going very well. Maria likes to sleep mostly in her crate, but has on occasion joined the resident dogs on the human bed.

With the warmer spring weather and windows open, Maria is not a fan of a few loud motorcycles that have driven by. She will pace back and forth until it quiets down and we assure her that everything is okay. She didn't react to our early morning thunder and lightning this morning.

Thank you, RAGOM, for figuring out a way to bring Maria and a van full of dogs from the auction when the world was shutting down!
