Hi, Wrangler here, checking in again.

I’ve had a busy few days since coming into Brookline.

I go into my crate on my own now and get yummy treats and my meals in there. I don’t like to spend too much time alone in there so I wake Foster Mom up sometimes so we can go outside. Sometimes I potty for her but sometimes I just walk around with her.

I’ve learned to play fetch. I’ll chase the ball and bring it back to my FM (Foster Mom). I let her take it from me and then, I chase it again. I’ve also learned to play tug and Rubble and I love to chase and play!

All of this activity is exhausting and calls for a nice nap. Yellow Labrador Retriever

Until next time,

Wrangler 🐾

Hi, I’m Wrangler!

I just joined Brookline yesterday and boy has my life changed a lot!

I’m a 6-month-old Pure Bred Farm Dog.  The Farmer wasn’t able to sell me, so he contacted Brookline.  My life on the farm was a lot different, I was an outside dog but I got to run free on the farm.  I saw horses, cats, dogs and kids on the farm and I wasn’t phased by any of them.

Life in my Foster Home has been a lot of new experiences.  First thing they did was put a collar and leash on me.  Have you ever seen a dog melt into the ground?  Well, I just made like I was a pancake cause I wasn’t too keen on that leash thing.  Then they started to feed me cheese and coaxed me up.  I actually took a few steps for them but I wasn’t about to climb into that car.  So, Foster Mom picked me up, with a little grunt and groan, I am 67#!!  She  tried to put me in the car but have you seen those cartoons where dogs and cats seem to grow 20 legs and stretch them across doorways so they can’t go anywhere?  Yup, that was me.  They finally got me into the car and we went for a long drive away from the farm.

When we got to my Foster Home, they tried to walk me on that leash thing again.  It wasn’t happening, not even with cheese, but after some pushing and pulling by both of us we finally made it inside the fence.  I met the resident dogs who wanted to sniff me all over.  I tucked my tail and stood like a statue until they were done and then eventually got up the nerve to start walking around.

It turns out the other dogs are okay.  I was able to sniff them all over and now I’ll follow them around. Yellow Labrador Retriever

I was a little nervous when I first met Floyd and Rubble.  But now, I’m completely relaxed and play the “bookends” game with Rubble.

Rubble did this crazy jump and bark at me once but I just stood there.  Not sure yet what that’s all about.  Foster Mom said he wants to play but I don’t know about that.

Foster Mom gave me a nice brushing and body check for ticks.  It didn’t bother me at all, it was sort of like a Spa Day.  I just laid on the ground and enjoyed the attention.Yellow Labrador Retriever

Another crazy thing about my Foster Home, I can go INSIDE!  I’m not so sure I like going through that door thingy but it’s getting less scary, esp. when the other dogs are with me.

My Foster Moms can’t believe how calm I am for a 6-month old pup.  I just lay down and chew on a toy or bone.  They don’t like it too much if I try to chew a cord or the chair but I listen and just chew whatever they give me instead.

I went for a walk tonight with the Resident Dogs and it was fun, even with that leash thingy.  It did take some convincing to get me up and out the door, again, no luck with the cheese  Don’t they realize I’ve caught on to that trick?  They’re going to have to up the anty if they don’t want to play the push/pull game!  But once we were out walking, I actually got a little spring to my step!Yellow Labrador Retriever
