Smile Decision is Final

There is no more question-this decision is final...official! We are adopting Bethsheba, the 11 month old rescue. We pick her up on Tuesday. Our son and his wife will be adopting Ziva - the 'infant' pup.

Beth was taken to the groomer's yesterday, in preparation for the big day. She automatically jumped into the crate in the van like she'd been doing it for years. She didn't pee. At the groomer's, she eagerly unloaded. No crouching, tail relaxed, she heeled like she was born to it. She greeted the groomer like an old friend. No peeing. She was respectful of the other dogs and patient. The only thing she didn't like was being on the grooming table. She's just a big girl not liking the little table.

We will be looking Into some agility exercises for her, as the atrophy in her hind quarters begins to resolve.

Same here. Thanks to 'Anthony', the guy who takes excellent pictures of his GSD, I am now looking for a decent camera.

Ziva will never be far, this is true.

Now....should I be changing my name here?

Congratulations. Sounds like Bathsheba is walking around smug and safe in the knowledge that she already has you wrapped around her paw. My guess is She and Ziva became fast friends at the breeder and plotted this whole thing so they would be adopted as a pair and be able to stay friends.

I can imagine the conversation:

Ziva: Here comes the two legger that flat eared mom was talking about. What do you think?

Bathsheba: I like her. Give me 90 seconds.... let's see how pliable she is.


one minute and a half later-

Bathsheba: Piece of cake. Only problem is, she just wants one of us.

Ziva (puppy eyes filling with tears): You mean I'll never see you again?

Bathsheba (Reassuringly): Not gonna happen. She said something about having a two legger puppy of her own. Let me work that angle.



Hate to tell you this honey, but you got played.
