He was merle, and roughly the size of a Shetland pony. He was a funny dog. He was about four when she got him from the SPCA, and I was afraid he wouldn't let me in because I visited only once a year, so I used to have my pockets full of dog biscuits for him, and would pick up one of the cats when he saw me the first time during any visit. He let me in alright, but wouldn't let me leave - he would grab my clothing and pull me away from the door when I wanted to go! More dog biscuits, please!
, I can see myself beeing very scared with a size dog like that
. To tell you the truth , I am scared of big dogs
. I am sure glad you pick up a lot of treats to escape
A friend of mine had two great dane dogs and so know a little about them . They are also called the gentle giant dog , but I guess it all come down to how you race a dog . I think blue merle is the colour what the lady said my dog is .
Thank you Sam
I have to say "Lady" sure keeps me busy all day long to get her house broken
. But she is getting much better , I always praise her when she did her busyness outside and then Lady is very happy that she made me happy
. Lady is a very happy girl any way and turns out she is sweet too . Today it was the first time she licked my feet
, I love that . I got her some vitamine since I think she is a little under nurished , it is for puppy's and small dogs and think will help her to grow better . For sure I will talk to the vet next week about that . Lady and her sister were in a cat cage till last week at the shelter and you can see on her foot where she was laying and hurt laying all the time . She was one week outdoors in a bigger run with other puppy's together and sure enough she has 2 bites what I think come from the yellow flie
. One yellow flie did bite me while I showed my husband the dogs and have seen a couple off them darn flies out there . I really feel for those dogs , the poor baby's
I also got her some more toys today to keep her teeth busy
Today "Toby" and "Lady" have played together for the first time and was really cute to watch
.My friend Iris said she has some medical shampoo left from the vet and will bring it by on Sunday . I did give her a little bath with Dawn liquit soap (blue) , but her smell did not much improove . So I can't wait till I can give her a real good bath , so she starts to smell better
So everything is looking great so far
