Remember this dog from last week?
She came to RuffHaven last Sunday.
She was sad and confused because her owner had to leave her behind after 10 years.
She lived in her back yard and now they were moving and couldn't take her along.
Monday we had a quick trip to the vet.
A complete exam and bloodwork to see if there were any
major issues that needed to be addressed.
She has very bad arthritis and the vet put her on Metacam.
Then a trip to our groomer to get all the matted fur removed
her fur was snarled and knotty. So matted that it had to come off.
And this way we could get a good look at her.
Doesn't she look all relaxed ? Our groomer , Randy, is amazing.
After her "spa treatment"
she had an appointment with our doggy acupuncturist.
She was given a deep massage and a vitamin B-12 shot
for her joints.
She looks so much better.
All week long I had been keeping her away from the other dogs.
Only allowing short supervised visits.
Her name was Ginger...
but since I had just recently lost a Ginger and this dog really didn't respond to it,
we changed her name to Penny.
So here she is today
One week later
Lounging peacefully with Shadie and Goldie
I think we have a happy ending in the making.
I can't tell you how much I already love this dog.
She's my new shiny Penny.
The Lifeguard comes home everyday and sings
" Penny Lane " to her.
I think he secretly loves her too.
but he won't admit it.
Have a wonderful evening!
