Alright, I'll let you talk now, Blessings and have a great weekend!
The truth is I have been HARD at WORK! (Yes, there really IS overtime for at-home mommas!)
But all that aside, I have a question for my doggie-loving friends.....
What do I do if my girl seems sad??
Foxy Loxy is friendly, she's wonderful, and VERY even tempered, but the look in her eyes is pitiful!
A friend of mine pointed out that she never has that "crazy-eyed happy face," where the dog's whole body is wagging, tongue hanging ready to lick your face off!
Don't get me wrong....Foxy DOES get excited to see us, and her tail wags often, but her licks are gentle, not out of control, (which I am grateful for....and I realize that this probably sounds silly!!) She's just very subdued. She'll romp around outside, play with her toys, tug-o-war with us, take vigorous walks, and she is completely gentle with the fam.......I really shouldn't have a complaint.
I just, (gasp*, can it be?) CARE about how she's feeling! I say that because I have been accused of NOT being a dog lover!
I'm hoping this is still part of our adjustment period....., it's only been a month, right? And before she came home with us, her 'parents' divorced, she lost her home, then spent 4 weeks with a foster mom (who loved her SO much that she cried when we came to pick her up!)
I could write a sad country song about all that!
She seems to have transitioned to our home So well! She is totally patient with the kids, sleeps on Merrick's bed, and has never had an accident in the house. She isn't skittish, nor does she bark at people, just the chihuaua next door (which, I think I'd bark at if I knew how!)
I guess I'm just so pleased with her addition to our home,
that I want to make sure she's happy too.
Dang, do you think we need family counseling?!?!?
I'm just saying....this is the first dog I've ever been responsible for...my childhood dogs were cared for by my dad....So any ideas you have would be graciously accepted :D
Really, at this point, all I can offer her are belly rubs (that girl is on her back constantly!!) and treats throughout the day. Check out her eyes in the pic below...AND that's in the midst of a total rub down from Jarrod..........ugh Foxy, why are you so sad?!?!
