Saturday, January 9, 2016


Gracie has been with me for about 6 weeks. She is a sweet, adorable little girl. She loves to cuddle. She is always looking for a lap!   
She is potty trained, plays with my dog and my cat, and is a very easy dog.
She seems very happy and content.
She was a little hesitant when the snow came, being from Alabama, but now is running through the snow in the yard like a champ!!!
She is crated when I go to work, but if I am gone for a few hours she is not, and she is fine in the house. She sleeps on the bed, and snores!!!
She loves to go for walks, and we are working on her leash skills. She is one of the easiest foster dogs I have ever had, she is a great dog. She has been around a 5 year old and an 11 year old and likes them! She has amazing eyes.

Here is Gracie with Ronan and the cat! All looking out the window.

Louie, parti poodle

5/13 here is Louie. He is a 11 pound parti poodle. He has been at my house for a few weeks now.
He is the cutest little guy. He loves to eat, plays outside with his foster brother Ronan, and likes to cuddle.
They are guessing he is about 3 years old. He was neutered about 2 weeks ago, which was good, he was marking in my house before that.
He definitely panics if crated. He does not like the crate if I am not home. At night time, if I crate him in my bedroom he is fine, but he does not like to be left alone in the crate. 
You can tell he is used to being with someone most of the day.
When I go out, he is ok in the house because of my dog, I think he feels comfortable with the other dog being there and does not panic.
He is somewhat potty trained, it didn't seem like he was potty trained at all when I got him. But he is a poodle, a smart dog, he watches my dog outside and follows along. He is not completely potty trained yet, but he is coming along nicely. The days when I do not go to work there are no accidents in the house, so I think sometimes he pottys in the house because he is anxious when I am gone.
He wears a belly band in the house which reminds him to not go potty in the house. That is somewhat effective.
He loves to chew on rawhide. He walks around with a rawhide stick in his mouth and looks hilarious!
He will protect that piece of rawhide and stand up to my 55 pound poodle, but I can easily take it from him and he is fine. He is a very gentle guy.
Here are some pictures of him. He really settled in my house easily. He is a little shy at first meeting people, but warms up quickly. He has been exposed to other dogs and does not have a problem at all with them. He also has been exposed to children and is fine with them too.
He is a sweet happy little guy!

Ivin has Visitors today !

My son is over doing some work on my house, brought his 2 dogs over and Ivin is hanging out with them. He is not intimidated at all by a bigger dog, he just goes with the flow. 

Here he is with Jack.

Here he is with my dog Ronan, and Shy the Mastiff. He is looking out the window.

March 22

Ivin is enjoying the outdoors much more now that it has warmed up.
The potty training is going very well, we have not had an accident in the house in 2 weeks! 
I am going to get him out and practice walking on a leash, I don't think he has had much of that before he got here.
He has a great appetite, LOVES treats, especially hot dogs! And is doing very well. His skin was very dry and flaky when he came, now that he is on fish oil supplements and gets good quality dog food, no more skin issues!
He is so adorable. Here is is, deciding which toy to play with, even though some of the toys are as big as he is!
