So two nights ago this stray showed up. She’s absolutely adorable and had what we thought to be some MAJOR problems. As in, her hair was falling out and she had sunburn, it looked like she was blind in one eye and I had never seen fleas so big. So we thought that if we left her outside she would go home if she lived near by. We woke up the next day to hear whines and whimpering from my studio where she had held up for the night on the hammock (which was folded up on the porch) which she was now tangled in. We untangled her and drove her door to door but couldn’t find her owners. We then took her to the vet.
She has limited vision in her one eye, but aside from that her biggest problem was fleas! She was a spayed, 5 year old cockapoo. So we gave her some flea meds which killed the little suckers in 4 hours and after that brought her in. We didn’t want to expose our big dogs to her because we were afraid they’d have her for lunch so we waited for a little bit to do that.
So here we are, with two HUGE weimaraners and the first ever small dog we have ever owned, a cockapoo. She’s so cute though, and loving. Originally, we thought she wouldn’t come to us because we weren’t calling her by name but she won’t even look up if you scream at the top of your lungs while you’re standing right beside her. So we’ve decided that she’s pretty much deaf. She does come to you if you get her attention and wave for her to come so that’s kinda nice. I’ve decided I’m going to teach her sign language. It has been done before, I have seen it with my own eyes! A man that lives in my fiance’s neighborhood has a deaf dog, and is deaf himself, so he taught it sign language. It can sit and stay and fetch and everything just by using signs. I guess hunters teach their dogs signs as well but I don’t know anyone who hunts with dogs.
Our dogs don’t like her much right now. Daggett flat out moves as fast as he casually can away from her, and Faye just get’s up and moves everytime the little one tries to investigate her. No arguements or anything but I still don’t think we’ll leave the three of them together alone for a while.
We’ve decided to name her Serendipity and call her Sarah for short.
Here are the three of them, Sarah’s kind of active now that she’s feeling better so sorry for the blurs!
Anyway, crafting has been put on a stand still by that adorable little face. No more I say! I have to get things done Sarah! Go be adorable in some other part of the house and stop following me around being all affectionate!!!
I love it 😛
(sorry they’re sideways)
Do you want to know what caused these spots that went ALL around the wrap around porch?
I did! … After chasing and cleaning up after a cute little puppy who decided it’d be even cuter to put three feet in white paint and then lay down on her self, effectively covering her WHOLE UNDERSIDE in white latex paint and leaving a trail in her wake. -.-; I love dogs. I love Sarah. I also find it hard not to laugh when I take one step forward with a hose and she runs playfully in the other direction with white paint flying everywhere.
Fortunate are we who can laugh at ourselves, for we will never cease to be amused.
