Cindy, 7 year old yellow

Happy Valentine’s day! ❤️

Cindy was spayed today. I told Cindy her Valentine’s Day present from Brookline is no more babies, ever.  She also had some dental work done including a few extractions. All went well and she is back in her foster home recovering now.

The poor girl is doped up and out of it. It’s probably for the best. She drank some water and if she keeps that down, we’ll try a small meal later. She is snoozing away right now. We’ll leave her to that for now.

She was the perfect patient at the vet’s office today. They commented about how she just wanted to check everything out. I call her curious. She’s always checking out what’s going on, who is coming in, what’s over here or over there. That’s Cindy!

The good news is that her diet is working. She has lost 6 pounds already.  It’s only been 2 1/2 weeks. Yay, for Cindy!  She is now down to a slightly slimmer 100 pounds. She’ll be ready for bikini season in no time!😂

Cindy will be wearing the cone here for the next two weeks when she can’t be directly supervised. Pepper and Colin have told her it’s not so bad. They both have had their fair share of cone time.

The vet tech gave Cindy a very pretty heart bandage today. A pretty heart for a pretty girl!  Cindy sends her love and wishes everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day!💕🐾

Cindy, the former Amish breeder dog, has been here 5 days now.  We’ve gotten rid of the fleas and the worms.  She tested Lyme positive and we were seeing some stiffness in her hind end, so she’s on a course of doxy for that.  She already seems to be moving better.

Cindy is scheduled to be spayed and have some dental work done on February 14th.  That’s right, her Valentine’s Day present is no more babies ever!  I’m sure she’ll appreciate the dental work too.  She has 2 or 3 bad teeth that need to be removed.  It’s definitely causing her discomfort, so I’ve been soaking her kibble to soften it for her, and she now readily eats it all.

Cindy met the resident 3 legged lab Pepper and they both really enjoy each other.  Pepper seems to bring out the playful side of Cindy. Cindy got to meet Colin, our other foster dog on a little walk yesterday.  Colin is recovering from knee surgery, so no playing for him. 🙁  They sniffed and were fine walking with each other.

Cindy is a large girl and not quite aware of her size.  She can be a little pushy, so we’re working on teaching her not to be so pushy with her nose and body with other dogs and people.  She really just doesn’t quite get it yet.  Slowly, but surely!

 

Cindy continues to do all of her pottying outside.  She enjoys carrying around soft toys.  Although she did pull out the squeaker in the stuffed bone.  Typical lab!  She really enjoys snoozing on the couch, but has no problem being crated.

 

She is a quiet girl. The only little woof we’ve heard from her is the one night her foster dad turned the tv on in the room with her. She gave it a “WOOF” and backed up. Then she tried to sniff the voices. She wasn’t so sure about the light and the color and the noise at first. Within a few minutes though she accepted the tv and happily snoozed on the couch next to foster dad. Good girl Cindy!

Cindy sends her love and chin kisses!

Cindy got off the Amish farm and came into foster care yesterday. She’s very friendly with both men and women and loves affection and petting. We are thrilled to say she has had ZERO potty accidents in the house. All of her pottying has been in the backyard. Yay for Cindy!!!

Cindy is large girl, weighing in at 106lbs. She needs to loose 10-20lbs, but she will always be a larger dog. Cindy wants me to let everyone know that just means there is more of her love!

She has no problem going in and out of the house. She pulls a lot on leash, but she’s only ever had to walk on one for less than 24 hours now. We tried the easy walk harness on her, but she managed to wiggle her way out of it. We’re going to try a freedom harness next. Right now we’re using a martingale and that’s doing the job temporarily.

She has met resident lab Pepper and foster lab Colin through the gate. They’ve sniffed and wagged tails. She has growled a little at Colin when he was sticking his nose through the gate at her with some excited force. Colin backed up and Cindy walked away from the gate to retreat to her new favorite spot. Speaking of her new favorite spot, aka the couch, she loves it!  I’ve never had a farm dog so quickly get up on the furniture. She just made herself at home here, which was nice to see.

Last night she went into her crate for a treat and slept the whole night quietly. She had a big day so we were glad she was able to rest so peacefully. She’s been eating pretty well, and drinking very well. All of which is to be expected. She started the green bean diet here and surprisingly, she seems to enjoy the green beans. She ate all of the green beans and most of the kibble. She’s all in with this diet!

Cindy sends her love and thanks to Brookline for getting her off the farm and onto a couch. Her new life started yesterday and she is all in for it!!!
