Lila has been settling in really nicely here. She's become a lot more comfortable with our apt and with the other dogs. Here are few photos from the other night. Lila loves sitting on the couch. The last photo is Lila getting ready for bed.
We decided to bring out a few of our costumes and clothes for our pups to see if they fit.
All of the dogs were champs and really let us dress them up.
Lila is adjusting very well with the other dogs. She's a bit timid at times but she's getting used to being with Chewy, Bella and our cat Lexi. We've learned that she LOVES eating. She also loves exploring the new place. Since we love putting our dogs in clothes, we had to put Lila in a sweater!
Hey, we have a new foster pup in town! Lila is a 9 year old chihuahua looking for a forever home. She's a very sweet dog who loves to eat and explore our home. Here are a few photos of Lila.
Hi everyone, just a few quick notes to share with you. First, our previous foster dog Indy got adopted by a wonderful family. We are very happy for Indy and her warm loving future with her new family.
Second, I will be picking up another dog after work. Her name is Lila and she's a 9year old white Chihuahua. I'll post photos as soon as I get her tonight.
One of the things that Indy really can't get enough of are belly rubs. The moment I sit on the couch, Indy runs over to me and almost says "is it belly rub time???". After looking at me for a split second, Indy jumps on the couch, lays on her back with her paws in the air. She is then ready for her belly rubs.
She also likes to sit on my lap for a bit of tv time.
I have to say that Indy is such a sweet pup. She loves getting belly rubs and lots of attention. One of the things that we are noticing is that she's getting her appetite back! She's starting to eat everything in her bowl (wet food). We were a bit concerned about her not eating but i guess with any stressful situation, one can totally lose his/her appetite.
I'd also like to report that Indy is potty trained, meaning that she poops and pees outside. In her case, you can see that she's ready to go to the bathroom once she starts sniffing the ground constantly for a few seconds. She's trying to find the perfect spot. For her future family, i'd advise letting her sniff as soon as you get outside. After she goes to the bathroom, then you can give her a nice brisk walk.
The last thing i'd like to report is that Indy does bark at times. Her barks are pretty loud. So, that's something her future family should be mindful of. Of course, controlling her barking can be done with training. She usually just barks at unfamiliar loud noises and people she is unfamiliar with.
Today is Indy's first full day with the rest of the crew here. She's still warming up to our dog Bella. Bella still feels that it is not fair to come from the only dog in the house to having to share her home with 2 other dogs plus a cat. Our other dog Chewy loves to follow Indy around. Sometimes Indy tells Chewy to back off but Chewy, being the playful and friendly pup that he is, continues to follow Indy around in hopes that she will play with him.
Also, we finally got Indy to eat something today. Lately she hasn't had much of an appetite. We realized that hand feeding her wet dog food works like a charm. I'm glad to report that Indy finally has something in her stomach.
After spending some time with Indy, we have learned that Indy is totally a lap dog. She loves sitting on my lap and just relaxing. Also, like most dogs, she loves belly rubs.
Here are a few photos from her first full day with us.
We'd like to introduce to you a wonderful little doxie by the name of Indy. We are looking after her for a little bit until her vet appointment. She's a 2 year old(I think) doxie who is very polite and a great walker. Here are a few photos of Indy!
We took Chewy to the dog run the other day just to get him to start socializing with other dogs AND to give him some badly needed exercise. Here's a video of Chewy playing chase with another dog. He loved it!!
