Puddles Chocolate Labrador Retriever Female 4 Years Old ID #3433

Hi Everyone

It’s Puddles again. Do you remember me?

FM says my bald patch on my head has fur now. The hair is beginning to come  in on the sides. I am even more beautiful, that’s what FM says.

I am learning to politely sit instead of jumping on people for attention. I forget sometimes because I get so excited especially when FM comes home from work. I am so happy to see her and all the other dogs are competing for attention. Since I am a short girl I need to jump to be seem. FM ignores me and turns her back on me and won’t pet me until I sit like a good girl. Since I am a good girl I sit.

FM says I am having an operation on Friday so I don’t have anymore babies. She made me try on an outfit which I was not happy about. She said how cute I look and how I remind her of piglet. I am not a piglet why would she say that.  I am a doggo. That’s just crazy talk. Do you think I look like a pig?

Lick you later

Hi Everyone,

It me again Puddles I wanted to tell you about my week so far.

FM took me for a walk. We didn’t go far because it was my first time. She said I did really well. I didn’t pull at all, I just wanted to sniff everything. I got scared of the cars passing so I would move onto the grass. FM said I was really smart to do that. I was also really brave and went down all the steps out our front door. I was scared to go up though. FM said she knows I can do that we can try again another day.

I have been learning it’s not polite to jump for attention. Now I sit in front of FM wagging my tail waiting to get pets. Sometimes I forget and still jump because I am happy to see my people.

I am beginning to want to play with the resident dog Phoebe. I am still not sure what to do. I did grab the rope toy and she and I ran together for 10 seconds until Cowyn pushed me out of the way. Not fair! I was playing! He is leaving soon so then I can play with Phoebe all the time.

FM says my fur and skin is looking better. No more sores from itching.  My fur is filling in a little. I don’t like the cream on my skin but I let FM do it because she says I have to. I let her because I am a sweet girl.

Kiss you later, time for my beauty rest.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

Hi Everyone,

It’s Puddles again. I am doing better. I had a spa day, FM washed me with oatmeal shampoo and conditioner. I have to say I was not a big fan. First of all, she took away my good farm smell. Now I am all stinky but FM says I smell good. Not sure if I agree with that.

FM says I am beginning to be a house dog. I like sleeping on the dog bed or even better snoozing on the couch with my head in FM’s lap.Chocolate Labrador Retriever I also have not had a single accident since I have been here. I am really smart only babies have accidents and I am a big girl.

I live with 3 other dogs. At first I didn’t want them to look at me. If they met my gaze I would  let them know not to mess with me. Now I like them all.  I still get nervous when they play inside. Outside I love to run in the yard with them. It’s so much fun. I am not ready to play tug of war.  I am not even sure how to play. Eventually I may try when I feel more comfortable.

FM says I am sprouting fur all over and the I am like a chia pet.Chocolate Labrador Retriever I am not sure what that is but having fur is good, it keeps me warm.  I don’t like getting the cream rubbed on me but FM says it is helping. Well, it’s my nap time you know a girl needs her solid 18 hrs. of rest.

Lick you later. Yes I still want to kiss non-stop but I am trying to reduce my kissing. It’s hard it’s my favorite thing to do.

Hi Everyone,Chocolate Labrador Retriever

Let me introduce myself, my name is Puddles (cool name right) and I am a 4 yrs. old silver/chocolate girl. Foster mom thinks I may be a little older but a girl does like to keep her age a secret.

My FM pulled me off the farm with my mate Tanner. He went to a different foster home and I am here with 3 other dogs. They are okay, I am just trying  to figure everything out. At first I was really nervous. When I am nervous I want to kiss my FM and FD repeatedly. They are trying to show me I am safe here and I don’t need to be submissive, whatever that is. I just kiss because I like to do it.

My FM said my skin and fur look bad but I am not as itchy as I was. My FM rubs cream on my sides everyday to help heal my cuts and scabs. My skin isn’t as red and irritated as it was. She also gives me medicine in cheese to help me get better. I know I will be feeling better soon.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

I am learning how to be a dog. FM got really excited when I was chewing on a toy.

I don’t know what the big deal was but she was happy. I am going to go catch up on my beauty rest. Catch you later new friends.

Welcome  Puddles to her new foster home. She had over an hour and a half ride to come to my house. She was very good but wanted to give me kisses the whole ride.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

She went to the vet and got all her shots. She had infected ears that got treated and her skin and fur need some work.  I am hoping good food, antibiotics and salmon oil help clear it up. She weighed in at 72.4 lbs. She is scheduled to have her spay on May 17th.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

She is very sweet; she met the pack and did really well.

She does like to watch TV and seems pretty comfortable in the house. She went up and down the deck stairs. She also walked nicely on lead. She didn’t pull me but that may change once she is comfortable.  I am looking forward to getting to know her.
