Mindy Black Labrador Retriever Female 6 Years Old
March 7, 2019
Our girl Mindy had her wellness visit this afternoon. Overall our girl did well, but we have some things to work on. She has big time separation anxiety, so much so that she scratched her nose trying to get out of her crate this morning. The vet was concerned about the cut, but she said it may take some time for Mindy to settle in and ease the anxiety.
She received her vaccines that she needed as well as had a complete exam. Mindy has a very minor yeast infection in her right ear which we will be treating for the next two weeks with drops. Her current weight is 77.6 pounds, so although she does not need to lose weight, she could stand some toning up. Luckily, she loves walking with me and playing fetch which will totally help. Her front teeth are also slightly worn, but nothing the vet was concerned about.
For a rescued farm girl Miss Mindy (or Min Min as we call her) is in great health! She loves all her gifts from the rescue and to snuggle close to anyone who will pet her.

My foster mom says I have the best news ever: I POOPED! YES, she is a new mom of a human baby so things like that excite her. She can be embarrassing. Otherwise today was a lazy day. I enjoyed the nice weather while out for a walk, but I’ve been spending a lot of time being lumpy and catching up on sleep. Hey, I used to be a working girl and now I’m in retirement! I can enjoy this if I want! I found a nice comfy spot on the couch and am enjoying keeping it warm.
My first vet visit is Thursday so my foster mom will keep everyone up to date. Fingers and paws crossed all goes well!

Today was my second day with my foster family. They noticed last night that I have a lot of nervous energy and DO NOT like sleeping in a crate. So much so that I howl like a wolf! They decided it would be best if they slept on the couch to keep me company overnight, which ended up with my sharing the couch all night with my foster dad. I’m a daddy’s girl.
I did enjoy eating breakfast this morning, but I’m a very delicate eater. My foster parents thought this was funny since their old puppy baby used to scarf down his food! After breakfast we all went for a walk. My foster mom was so excited with how well I did! Not only did I walk the entire time without getting tired, but I walked with the baby stroller like I had been my whole life. We’ve spent the rest of the day relaxing due to the yucky weather.
We are trying letting me sleep in the kitchen with a gate and my foster mom plugged in her ipod that plays the noise of a heartbeat to help me relax. Fingers and paws crossed I sleep well! My foster parents sure hope so!

My name is Mindy, and I am a 6-year-old female black lab originally from Gap, Pa. I was saved this morning by some really lovely people and then placed with my super welcoming foster family. I went and had a bath, which made me nervous at first, but once I realized how good the warm water felt I loved it!
Once I got home to my foster home, I met my new little human foster sister. She was so excited to meet me! I absolutely love my new foster parents and follow them around everywhere, especially my new foster dad. I’m definitely a daddy’s girl!
Now, I’m settling in, laying down before dinner. It has been a very long day, but a very eventful one! I would like to personally thank Brookline Lab Rescue and everyone involved! I am looking forward to my new life!
