Getting settled


WHEW!! Sorry, it's been a few days. We picked up the dog, (who after 3 days of being here, was finally named Bailey) and she came home with Kennel cough. For those that might not know it's a god awful sounding cough followed by the sound of gagging. So the first night, we listened to that all night. My husband was pissed, that the shelter let her go like this, but that's the key word: "shelter". Not a Vet. Her first day home she was great. She was fun, loved everyone, was playing with all her new toys, etc. Day 2, she barely moved off the couch, and it just got worse from there. As you know, my mechanically challenged husband ruined 1 car, so I had no way of getting her to the vet. A friend ended up offering to take us yesterday and let me tell, what a turn around!!! By last night, she was back up and around and playing. I am totally in love with this dog. She is well trained, and so much fun!! This is as big as she'll get, so she's the perfect size for our household. Here are some Pix:
