Rosie had one tooth pulled, the infected one, and it was decided by the vet to keep the fractured tooth intact for the time being. She did very well during and after the surgery. She ate only soft foods for two weeks, and after healing nicely, she is eating dry food and enjoying treats again.
Rosie must have a high pain tolerance—with both the spay surgery and the tooth extraction she handled it all with such a brave spirit and not a single complaint.
Rosie continues to make strides in learning what the Golden life is all about. She follows our resident dog’s lead in many situations, and is stepping out of her comfort zone each and every day in her attempt to be trusting of humans.
There are still many things that make her feel uneasy (quick and unexpected movements of her humans, putting on her leash, going anywhere near a car, and experiencing new places outside of her foster home), but she tries so hard to be brave and accept new things that come her way. When we think back to the first day she arrived at our home, we are so proud of how far she has come.
