Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

Celebrating my two year anniversary with Ruth and also two years of working with many of you wonderful folks in this community.

Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

Shannon,

There is absolutely no way anyone would know she is the same dog. She looks wonderful and is obviously so happy with her sister Suma.

Since we share a name and my Rafi also started out with a horrible case of mange, I have a very soft spot for your Ruth. Thanks so much for taking her into your home and into your heart.

Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

Please say a prayer for Ruth. She has not been acting normal since last night. Today she seems lethargic and wobbly... not wanting to go outside and just laying on the couch (trying to stay away from the other dogs.) I have an emergency appointment for her in the morning but will likely take her to the animal ER this evening if she seems to be getting worse. She has had ear infections in the past that made her seem wobbly like this but I don't see any signs of ear problems right now. If anyone has any insight, I would appreciate it. Otherwise, please keep her in your thoughts... thanks!

Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

I just got an update from Shannon. Ruth was shaking her head earlier and she is thinking that it is probably an ear infection. Unless something changes, she is just planning on taking her to the vet in morning.

Fingers crossed that it is only an ear infection and Ruth is milking it for all she can to steal some of the attention from Faith.

Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

I also wanted to update everyone on Gracie. I spoke with Gracie's mom and dad the other day and she is doing very well.

She has learned from Riley, their other GSD, to jump on the bed and has now claimed the guest bed as her own. Why share, when you can have a whole bed to yourself. LOL

She is also still getting around just fine and gives Riley a run for his money.

Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

Sorry I forgot to update, it's been a madhouse lately.

Ruth is doing much better. As I suspected, it was a bacterial ear infection. She has chronic skin and ear flare-ups, but it was a little different this time as the "wobbles" came before the obvious signs that it was ear related. Thanks for keeping Ruthie in your thoughts.

And Amy, thanks for moral support and the great update on Gracie! Yay!!

Re: Gracie & Ruth - 2 GSDs from TN

Here are some photos from road tripping with my girls last week. They are always so patient when we have fosters, it was great to spend some special time with just them.
