a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Gypsy Update

We made it through the night, after several whiny fits over the fleas, I finally Sevin dusted her and it has slowed the problem. Poor Baby, she was so miserable.
As you can plainly see, she has the hound in her but a gentler hound I have never met.

One of her first photos after I picked her up yesterday. She greeted everyone that stopped by with a wag and a smile. Did not jump on anyone and only asked for loves with the undulating body movements.

Looking a little sad here, but the ride home was so easy. She loaded when I said and sat as if she were belted in the back seat. No car sickness, no rambling, just looking out the windows like any person would.
Here is a more defined shot of her body shape. She is listening to the children playing at the school and wanted to join them so badly. Yes, Gypsy, needs a family with children.
Our current disagreement is the ownership of the couch. I had full intentions of not allowing her on the furniture, well, that has still not been established. I left her in the computer room last night, with no destruction, no accidents but she did sleep on the love seat. We shall have to discuss this later...and surprise, Gypsy is not a very vocal dog which is a big plus in my book.

ICARE does a lot of good work in our county. I am privileged to be able to help with that.

Well done you, Gail! What a great idea! I just hope you can bear to say goodbye when the time comes - she does look like a great dog.Sarah x

What Sarah said, and yes, it'll be hard to give them up, but you are turning her into a dog who will make someone an ideal companion. I can clearly see the hound in her. I think her mama may have been a border collie. I love her markings.
