I would like to formally request that she stop growing.
Goose has been here for a week tomorrow and has learned SO much already! She is a smart little cookie!
She has "sit" and "stand" down (with treats, of course), she tackled the stairs (both up and down) all on her own without any guidance or request to do so, she's sleeping in her crate (there's some crying, but the microwave heating pad and the Tibetan singing bowl music are helping settle her), and she figured out that car rides aren't something to be so upset about.
We were given a tip to introduce her to 100 new things in 100 days. So we've clipped her toenails, walked on a leash, met a 1-year-old and 3-year-old, gone on a long car ride, had a bath in the sink, ran around in the snow, and met some other doggies -- to name a few!
The biggest accomplishment is Stella. They are FINALLY playing together. Not just co-existing, but interacting and wrestling. Stella has figured out to lay on the ground, belly up, and wriggle around to get puppy's attention. Goose is a little unsure, since Stella has been growling at her a lot since she arrived, but is coming around!
Our brave boy is back! During his dental check up, we discovered that he would need to have a tooth removed. The bone had deteriorated and was at risk for more complications in the future. After a successful surgery, he came back home a little groggy but happy, healthy, and minus one tooth. Today we’re taking it easy and making sure he gets lots of love as he heals. 🦷 Thank you to everyone at @melroseac_02176 for their wonderful care!
Adorable Milkshake is ready to meet her new family! This black and white Oreo flavor is an active and silly girl - she's a border collie mix and just the cutest. Look at those pointy ears! She's just about a year old and still growing out of her puppy energy! She does need some time to settle and is a little excitable in the beginning but once she calms, she's a leaner and snuggler. She loves pets and seeks your attention. She's good with other dogs but is very playful so would be good with a home with another dog that is tolerant and could teach her the ropes! ❤️🐾 📷: @andrewkdow#adoptable#adoptdontshop#adoptoakland#adoptlocal#adoptlove#bordercolliemix#bordercolliemixesofinstagram
