Sadie has an absolute perfect Golden nudge and she's been using that nudge to remind me to update everyone on her progress. I'm very excited to report that Sadie hasn't had an accident in the house in over two weeks!! This girl lived her whole life outside, so getting her house trained was a big deal - and she did it! She has also been able to space out her potty breaks a bit and she will stand by the door when she needs to go out. She continues to amaze me with her willingness to learn and she is really eager to please.
We did have a bit of a scare with her earlier this week. Monday into Tuesday, she just wasn't her normal spunky self; a quick trip to the vet revealed a bladder infection and a mild ear infection. A couple weeks of antibiotics and she'll be just fine again. She is already back to playing and nudging me for walks, so I know she's already feeling better. Sadie goes for a car ride once a week with me to visit my mom and she is an ideal passenger and houseguest. I get such a kick out of her because she walks right into the house and up to my mom for love like she's known her for years. Sadie hasn't met anyone yet that she hasn't turned into a friend for life.
I think Sadie's ideal home would be one where someone is home with her most of the day. She is a Velcro Golden and really likes to be around her people. She likes to lay in any patch of sun she can find; she just prefers that patch to be near you. I also think another dog is optional, but she routinely engages my resident dog in play, so I think she'd like having another playful dog friend.
