"To good health" From Kathleen Guinn
Meet Peanut, a 7 year old, pure bred Golden Retriever!
Peanut arrived to her new foster home yesterday (4/21/12) and is settling in nicely. This morning she anticipated and eagerly awaited the first few segments of her new routine - going outside and eating breakfast! Smart girl!!
She is the happiest when outside and likes going for short walks. She likes to weave left and right, but doesn't pull on the leash hardly at all. She has taken a liking to all the toys and tries to hoard them - she takes a toy out of the toy bin, carries it to her "comfort zone" in the bedroom, then comes back for another one. Pretty funny!
Peanut has a short left leg and deformed left paw, but it doesn't seem to bother her one bit in normal daily activity. She can go up and down stairs, walks just fine in her own way, etc. It would warm my heart to see Peanut go to a home with a child that has his or her own special leg or arm so she can help them conquer their adjustments in life.
Peanut was home with her foster sister with free roam for a little over 6 hours and didn't have any accidents, nor did she chew on anything. (A 2 hr trial run yesterday went well also.) She happily greeted me and went to the bathroom right away when we went outside.
Peanut went to the Vet this afternoon and was SO good! All the poking, proding, rubbing, shots, spray vacine up the nose... she took it all like a champ! She was nervous, but didn't complain at all. She weighs 75 lbs and had a negative heartworm test. She is scheduled for spay surgery on Friday.
All is well in Peanut land! : )
