Hi gang...thanks for all the sweet words, but it REALLY was no big deal... it was a beautiful day for a long ride and PA has some beautiful scenery...
so I took my niece for the ride to be some company she was barely awake both up and back?
This is Mia Bella when I first got her into the car out in cow country!
About an hour into the ride... she looked like Becca (my niece) and stayed that way till about 20 mins from the house
A few pictures when we first got in the house... she does give paw if you put your hand out in front of her. Her skin is in great shape, her eyes are bad, she does walk into things in the dark, but this morning she does real well moving around the basement and the yard. her ears are bad, I cleaned the best I could, but I think they are closed.
I am going to call my vet in the morning to get her in for evaluation.... the ER vet was a bust last night as they had about 5 emergencies and we would have waited for many hours and there really was nothing they could do, but maybe clean her ears and tell me her condition. So I opted to just leave.
As you can tell from the video,she is a love bug, but I sense she was always just alone as when we leave, she just lays right down and goes to sleep. she has no clue what toys or bones are either. She has rough patches of skin on her back legs around the 'ankles' so I think she was just kept in a kennel or crate all the time, except to potty -- she does seem to be house trained, as they told me to take her out for potty every two hours.
they did not give me any food, so I have her on beef, rice and green beans... she had a bath for probably the first time in years last night, she wasn't too happy about that, but she was good overall. At this time, there are no signs of any aggression or behavior issues, but I think she may have some dominance in her as she 'kicks her scent' after each potty (pee and poo).
Again, this is very rewarding, and not a big deal for me, but I think I have a very ease first rescue. What those in rescue do on a daily basis and how their hearts can survive without hurting the people doing this to these sweet babies is just beyond my understanding and I could never be compared to any of them. I really just went for a nice ride on a nice day.... just picked up a friend
