I wonder what Kela is thinking about this change?
Yesterday when we loaded up the car it was obvious she knew something was going on, but I must admit I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well she’s settled in compared to other dogs we’ve either sat with or had come to stay while their owner was away or in hospital.
Getting her to take her meds is three misses before a hit, so we have adopted the same approach as with Maggie and crushing up the tablets, mixing them with water, and using a syringe directly into the mouth. No problem at all this afternoon. Dinner has also been eaten with gusto, and she has spent the majority of the day outside on the drive.
We have bought a small tarp to put under her food stand as we had been warned she slops her water all over the floor. Well, my slippers got a bath as well so ended up on the car roof in the sunshine to dry out. It’s not a problem though. Maggie wasn’t exactly dainty when she had a drink and we had a mat under her food and water bowls, but that would be no way big enough here.
Twice we have called her Maggie though they are nothing alike in colour and Kela is twice the size of our baby. We had some pleasant comments on our walk this morning, and when it comes to other dogs, there seem to be no issues. A playful cockerpoo pup came up to us on the prom, and Kela’ s head dwarfed it. We shall take her for another walk this evening though it would appear she prefers to do her toileting on home ground which is not a problem for us at all.
It has been a good day though, and I’m hoping she will go through the night tonight now that she’s settled in a little more.
If not outside, this is where she’s chosen to sleep during the day.
