Jolie discovered the tomato garden all on her own. I never had a dog that ate our tomatoes before. I read that they are fine for dogs to eat, just not too much because of the acid. She was very proud of herself. Now I guess I need to put a fence around the veggies.
What kind of mischief did you get into today?
The story that we were told by the rescue:
- They got a call from a Deacon of a church that a woman’s husband died and he had 4 small dogs in a kennel that she wanted nothing to do with.
- The only dog that had been spayed or neutered was Jolie.
- The woman gave away one of the dogs (to her grandmother?). The other 3 were taken into foster in February of this year.
- They said she was a Yorkie mix on the paperwork. (She looks much more like a Shih Tzu than a Yorkie, but clearly, she is a mix of things (aren’t we all).)
- They were supposedly allowed out of the kennel once a day. They were covered with urine and feces when they were rescued, so my assumption is that they lived in that situation for a very long time.
- The foster said she was house trained, and then the day they were coming, they said ‘by the way, she tends to have accidents.’ It is clear she is not housetrained.
