Okie Dokies...let us know if we look like freaks and need to go for a long long walk to the groomers ourselves to get our cuts fixed...but ya know, I don't think they are too bad. I mean, I'm not embarassed or anything.....my butt still looks good and all......
Bye! Nose Poke Pals! Have a Pawesome Day!
Roy Al the eldest of the 3 Griffindales.....and the SMARTEST!
JACK IS RESTING IN THE LIVINGROOM ON HIS NEW BED. HE SLEEPS DOWNSTAIRS IN A KENNEL BECAUSE HE CANNOT CLIMB THE 25 STEPS TO OUR UPSTAIRS/BEDROOMS YET.
SEE HIS LOVELY RING AROUND THE ANKLE? THAT WILL TAKE A YEAR TO GROW OUT AND BLEND IN AGAIN....A CONSTANT REMINDER FOR OUR FAMILY TO EXERCISE CAUTION!!!!
LOLA HAS BEEN VERY 'OUT OF SORTS' SINCE THIS HAPPENED TO JACK - SHE IS VERY ATTACHED TO HER PACK LEADER. SHE ALWAYS STAYS WITHIN A FEW FEET OF JACK TO WATCH HIM AND BE CLOSE. SHE CRIES IF SHE CAN'T SEE HIM AND THAT HE IS OK....HOW SWEET IS THAT?
AND THERE IT IS...THE NASTY INCISION THEY HAD TO MAKE IN OUR BOY'S BELLY TO GET THAT 3" PIECE OF CORN COB OUT. BEWARE THE COBS! THEY NEVER, EVER DIGEST AND MY VET HAS REMOVED 7 FROM VARIOUS SIZE DOGS THIS SUMMER ALONE. THEY ARE VERY DANGEROUS AND IT IS VERY SCARY TO GO THROUGH THIS....PLEASE NOBODY LEAVE CORN COBS AROUND WHERE YOU BABY'S CAN GET THEM! IT TOOK JACK ABOUT 3 AND 1/2 SECONDS TO GET THE PIECE HE GRABBED FROM THE KITCHEN FLOOR DOWN HIS THROAT. I'LL NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED THAT MY FUR KIDS WILL BE SAFE IF THEY ARE SITTING IN MY LIVING ROOM WHILE WE CLEAN UP FROM A MEAL IN THE KITCHEN......FROM NOW ON...THEY WILL ALWAYS IN THE MUD ROOM!!!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE AND PRAYERS! NOSE POKES AND LICKY-LICKS FROM JACK HIMSELF..... AND HUGS AND THANKS FROM OUR ENTIRE GRIFFINDALE FAMILY!
No, what are Trainers, Mumsie? Who are they?
Well, the trainers that Sierra will work with are two very nice people. There is Miss Caitlin and her husband Martin. Caitlin will train Sierra and Martin will help her. They have a nice kennel in Maine and have agreed to help out Miss Allison by training Sierra to do what is necessary as a service dog. This is Caitlin and Martin with a doggie that stays at their kennel.
Yeah Mumsie, that was my fwiend at Mamma Sherry's houwse...I wemember Miss Siewwa! I would surely have liked to seen her and say hello and sniff butts and stuff....did she smell me in the car Mumsie?
I'm sure she did Princess. And then in a few more minutes...WE ARRIVED at our meeting place. We met with Martin who was going to take Miss Sierra to their kennel and start to train her and get her to Miss Allison. Isn't this exciting stuff?
Walking with Martin...
A little quiet time in the grass....See her beautiful spot just like yours, Lola? She is a beautiful little girl, too, just like you. And very sweet, Mumsie got many kisses from Miss Sierra.
And then Mumsie's job was done, it was time to say goodbye to Miss Sierra so she and Martin could get to their final destination. Poor Sierra had such a long day of travel but she was a trooper - that little pooper looper! She got in Martin's car and I gave her the fleece we had and the hand leash so Martin could stop with her if he needed to. She looked tired but was still such a good girl. Martin was very kind and was happy to have Miss Sierra in the front with him for their journey. At least Miss Sierra won't be lacking attention or loving care.....seems everyone is bewitched by her sweet personality!
There she is - the super duper girl, Miss Sierra. Hope you had a safe journey for the last of your travels Sweetie! Wishing you love and much happiness in your new forever home. I'm certain that between Allison, Caitlin and Martin that you are going to be well loved. Blessing little girl as you begin the big job that lies ahead!
Thank you to Mamma Sherry for the love and care and for sharing Miss Sierra with someone in need. Thank you Martin and Caitlin for the care and training of Miss Sierra on behalf of Allison. And thank you Allison - for loving our little girl and giving her a forever home. We are all thinking of you! And we are here to help and to chat with you if you like!
When you are ready to set up your own Dog Blog....so we can see what is going on with Miss Sierra, let us know, we can help you if you like!
Good Luck and Many Blessings to you and Miss Sierra!
Lots of Love,
