Enschi Goes To The Vet

Well, I took my 10 year old female foster to the vet yesterday for her "new to rescue" vet check. Her hips look great, she has arthritis in both back stifles and she is now on a gloucosomine supplement. I also had him do a blood draw, just to make sure everything is working as well as it should on the inside.
Enschi was a big hit with all the staff in the office. At one point the tech called kennel workers in to see what a great GSD looks and acts like.
I love, love, love this dog. She will be very hard to give up. In fact, if the perfect home isn't found, she will stay here with us.
As it turns out, she is a fairly famous dog. V1 here in the USA, is a sch3., and is very much a piece of GSD history. I knew she was special! She certainly acts like she knows she is a queen.
She has been great with my cats. She has perfect house manners. She is just awesome.

Re: Enschi Goes To The Vet

ahhhhhhhhhhhh, lets hope that she gets to stay with you! it sounds like you would treat her like the queen that she obviously is.

I'd rather be hated for who i am than loved for who im not. An old shoshoni saying about loosing someone you love, MY HEART IS ON THE GROUND, NOW I MUST PICK IT UP AND MOVE ON

Re: Enschi Goes To The Vet

Yes! She was co-owned by Janis and lived with her. This is a very special dog.

Re: Enschi Goes To The Vet

You brought her up from California? I was seriously considering adopting her in November; the only drawback I had was the possibility of her and my female (also spayed) not getting along.

Congratulations; hope you get to keep her - she sounded like an AWESOME dog!!!

Re: Enschi Goes To The Vet

I was contacted late last month by someone local to me, who had been alerted to Enschi's need for placement. As luck would have it, I currently have no female dogs and was able to offer her a place. Enschi does not share her living space with other females, but that is honestly her only issue. For a 10 year old dog she is in amazing shape.
You know, the thing is that having her here has reinforced my love of the breed. I have been so burned out with my own young dog, trying to deal with his sometimes over-the-top behavior and some health issues. Add to that dealing with so many needy dogs in rescue and their idiot "owners".
But being able to help a dog like Enschi is what it is all about. The people in her life have done right by her every step of the way and it shows. And living with her, knowing that she must have had a high drive to be so successful, gives me hope for my Tanner. It might seem like he is a bottomless pit of energy, but that if I keep working with him and challenging him we should be okay. I guess she has reminded me that we get back what we have put in. I needed to be reminded of that.
And I really like having her around. I lost my own senior girl over 2 years ago. My husband always said that he knew which bathroom I was in by which door my old girl was lying in front of. Well, Enschi is like that. In this sea of male-ness that I live in (all these male dogs, and the male cats and then my two sons and husband), it is nice to have another girl in the house.

Sheilah, you posting this actually makes me feel better! I went with my "gut feeling" on not bringing Enschi here; I was concerned that I would get her here and then Misha and her would not get along at all. Her owner said they *might* get along and it would not have been fair to either of them to have to keep them crated or separated at all times. I am so very glad she is in a safe place with you~
