It would appear as though Julia possessed some bad murdered animal flesh? She always shares her meat with the dogs so it is the only reason we can think of for the upset stomachs that they have all had this week. Indy was the first quickly followed by Annie and Hamish and lastly Julia, after a couple of days of bland food they all appear to be well again. I wouldn’t gloat during these unpleasant times just because I don’t contribute to the suffering of animals and stick to healthy and suffering free vegetables, indeed, I had and showed a great deal of sympathy…… for the dogs. 😀
Annie is starting to explore a little more and likes to follow Hamish around, she is still more nervous around me than she is Julia but even this has improved a little. I did have to invest in some proper doggie gates as Annie would easily hop over the baby gates whenever Julia left the room, on one occasion I didn’t notice until Hamish crashed through the gate and went upstairs, I followed him only to find him standing over a stretched out Annie on the landing. 🙂 Luca was always a snitch whenever a foster dog misbehaved? it must be a Goldie thing. Annie now gets excited at walk times and crowds into our tiny hallway with Me, Julia and the boys all jostling for space to get ready and through the door, she isn’t worried by me being close to her then?
Annie and her foster brother, Hamish.
For a shy girl she is bold in claiming a comfortable seat. 🙂
We are under no illusions and still take every precaution when outside, even in the garden we are aware that a fright could send her running in a panic.
Just with the tiny changes to Annie in the last ten days we can see her potential, when she is more confident and relaxed she will make someone a fantastic companion. Already Annie is very sweet and loves affection given gently, we can see in her movements that she wants to approach people for a scruffle and it is only fear holding her back. 😦 We have all the time she needs in order to become the wonderful Annie that she wants to be.
