We hear it all the time. Do you have a medium-sized dog who is perfectly housebroken, loves children, and gets along well with other dogs and cats?
Duchess is all those things. At 7 years of age, she is an angel and a cuddly one at that. Her former family loved her dearly but had to return her because of a baby with serious allergies. When I say Duchess is almost perfect, I mean that. It's the difference between almost and totally that causes some concern.
This cutie has one problem. She's an escape artist. She can climb over fences and dig under them. You simply can't leave her alone in a fenced yard and expect her to stay put.
On the other hand, she's perfect for an apartment of a home without a fenced yard. As long as her owner will walk her, everthing is fine. She loves long walks, but she also cooperates with the quick in and out when she has to take care of business.
All it takes is a leash.
I've decided to seek a hospice foster for Groot, the elderly border collie. He's still happy, still loves dinner and treats, and still loves attention. He also appreciates a soft dog bed. But he often has trouble getting to his feet, and his back legs sometimes collapse. Pain med help. About once a day he works up enough energy for 10 seconds of playtime with other dogs. Than back to bed.
If you'd like to foster this sweet, slightly senile boy for the time he has left, please let me know. I'll tell you more.
We'll be back at Kirkwood Petco 11 to 3 Saturday. See you there.
