Lassie was spayed this past Tuesday & everything went very well. It took her about 48 hrs to get back to normal. She’s eating, walking & sleeping great.
She is so easy going. She hasn’t met anyone that she didn’t want to be petted by. Next week I’ll restart her introductions to more dogs, but I’m very confident that she’ll be fine with new dogs.

Lassie has been with me for 3 weeks now & continues to do very well. She loves meeting new people & dogs, though she can be a little nervous at first. She’s met 2 very high energy labs & she did growl a little at them when they both jumped all over her. Lassie then wagged her tail & continued to hang out with them. She’ll get better with all dogs in time.
She walks fairly well, pulls a little & gets distracted easily. But we’re working on that. She’s sleeping well & eating well. Lassie did lull me into a false sense of security.
For the first time in 3 weeks, she counter surfed & talk a couple of spare ribs off the table Sunday night. And Monday morning she got into an unopened bag of treats & ate a few. When I came home, she looked at me & her eyes said “What?” We’ll work on that also.
Lassie is so easy going, everyone she meets says she’s great.
Next Tuesday, Lassie is scheduled to be spayed. I’ll update everyone on how she did next week

It’s been 2 weeks since I started fostering Lassie. She continues to do very well. She loves mealtime, her walks & laying by my feet wherever I happen to be. She’s 100% house trained & knows sit, wait & the recall command.
Lassie sleeps all night on her bed next to me & I’ve left her alone for up to 3 hrs with free roam of the house with no issues.
Lassie likes everyone though I haven’t tested her with young kids yet. Since Lassie is a very low energy lab, she did very well with similar type dogs. Yesterday I walked her with a very high energy lab & she did ok, though she got annoyed with him after a while & let him know it by barking at him. She will get better as time goes on, though I feel she will be best in a home as the only dog or maybe with an older dog. At least as of now.
Lassie is also scheduled to be spayed & chipped on March 27. Overall, Lassie has been great & will continue to get better over the coming weeks.

Lassie has been with me for 8 days now & she is doing great. She seems to be getting more & more comfortable each day. She’s eating very well, loves going on walks. She walks fairly well, pulls a little & gets distracted easily. All the smells, sights & sounds are new to her.
She sleeps through the night on her bed right next to me. I’ve left her alone for a couple of hours at a time with free access to the house. She’s done great, no issues.
Lassie still doesn’t know what to do with toys, that might take a while. She is good with people, I haven’t checked her with other dogs, that will be this week. All in all, Lassie is doing great, she’s so laid back & easy going. She barked for the first time today.
