3 month anniversary!!

Hi everybody!
Yup..it's my three month anniversary in rescue. My how the time has flown by. It's hard to believe that I've been with my foster family for all this time. I've come along way in these three months and yet I still have a long way to go. My progress is slow but I am making progress. I get just a little more playful and a little less fearful everyday. I will jump onto a chair by myself and let my foster parents sit by me all night long. My "fear peeing" has diminished quite a bit as well. Much to foster mom's dismay - it's mostly when she picks me up. I hardly ever do it when dad does. I will play with my foster brothers and will snap at Dinky when he's a little rough with me. I come when called too. I'm still too scared to take a treat from a hand but I love to eat though.

The cute tan (carmel if you like) dog is the foster girl I was telling you about named Zoe. She is currently ready for adoption. She's staying with us for a few days while Auntie Joanie (her foster mom) is on vacation. You can see my full profile at http://www.midwestigrescue.com/available.html

I hope some you reading this will be at the annual Iggy 500 this June 6th in Noblesville, IN. I'll be there and hopefully I'll find a nice forever family to take me home and love me for a long, long time. See you there!

Spay delayed

Due to heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions the fosters decided it was unsafe to take me to Marquette to get spayed. We'll have to reschedule for a later date. I don't care much for going out in this weather either. Good thing the fosters have a pad out for me. I'm very good at using it.

Thanks for checking in on me!

A short check-in!

Hi everybody! Everyday out of the puppy mill is a great day and I've had nothing but great days since that day in November when Wendy rescued me. This is just a short note for all of you who like to check my blog once in awhile.

Overall I'm doing well. I'm continuing to take small steps almost everyday. I'm much more active and I run around the house with the pack when they get all worked up about something. Like I run to the door when foster dad comes home from work etc. My foster parents can pet me a little when I come up to them. I don't have my tail between my legs so much any more either. I look almost like a normal dog. But I still won't take a treat from anyone. I will eat a treat off the floor just inches from dad's hand but I won't take it off his finger. I'm also still struggling with trust issues as I don't like to be approached (but I'll come when called) and absolutely don't like to be picked up. Mom and dad are working on it though.

Zoe, who I mentioned in my last post, went to her foster family this week. She is really doing well there and has already been out visiting and even made a field trip to the local school with her foster mom. I'll post a good pic once I figure out how to work the digital camera.

I'm going on the 18th to get spayed. That doesn't sound like alot of fun :( Wish me luck.
