Dawn Yellow Labrador Retriever Female, 5 Years Old

Dawn has been in foster care with us, just over a week. She’s doing very well with her house training, only one accident and it was my fault for getting caught up in something and not getting her outside. Today she actually whimpered and I’m not sure if that was her way of telling me she needed to go out, but we went out and she peed. Good girl Dawn!

Dawn wanted to share a picture of her modeling her new fancy pants. Isn’t she adorable?!
I learned a fun fact about Dawn yesterday when I had to go out and get her new fancy pants. I gated her in the kitchen when I left. When I came home she was in the family room and the gate was still standing. She’s a gate jumper!
She is doing very well with her house training. She’s doing all of her potty business outside so far. Good girl Dawn! She’s working on crate training. She’s very good when she’s in the crate, but she’s not sure about going in just yet. A jerky treat usually convinces her that it’s not so scary. Typical food motivated lab!
All in all, she’s doing great. She still runs out of the kitchen when foster Dad uses the coffee bean grinder or when I turn on the garbage disposal. She comes right back in with her tail wagging though when the noises are over. She can’t figure out why Pepper and Colin don’t run away with her, but she figures she still has time to teach them!

Dawn is doing fantastic and is really settling in here already. Her first night was uneventful (always nice with a new foster!). She slept quietly the whole night. She ate her dinner shortly before bed time last night. She is doing all of her urinating outside. We haven’t had a poop yet, but it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet. Slowly, but surely!
She’s very curious and enjoys cautiously checking out new things. She even met my neighbor at the fence when we were outside in the backyard today. She did 3 cautious approaches, but was giving his hand little licks each time. The third time she accepted his petting. Such a brave girl!
Dawn’s big news is that she went into heat today. Yep, little drops of blood on the floor gave her secret away. That means that her spay will be delayed now until she is over her heat cycle and her reproductive system has had a chance to recover. Sigh!
Well, it will give her more time to acclimate to life inside of a home and get used to the good life. Pepper, the formerly Amish dog, can show her the ropes. Dawn really seems to like Colin too. She keeps kissing his face. He doesn’t mind because Pepper does the same thing to him. He has a very kissable face!
Dawn sends her love and little kisses to everyone in Brookline land!

We brought Dawn home for foster care today. She is so sweet, typical farm dog. She really takes comfort from our two resident dogs, Pepper and Colin. She follows them around.
I separated the dogs for dinner, but all Dawn wanted to do was get back to see her new best friends. She ate the jerky I put in with her dinner, but left the kibble. She’s no fool! She’s drinking and exploring her foster home. All is well here!
She will need to be spayed and acclimated to life inside a home and then she will be ready for her furever family. She’s such a lovely dog. She will make some family very happy, of that I’m sure!
