~My First Longhair
Emmy is doing great! Emmy and Odin play, rough-house and nap together. Uli is still reserved – but we’re down to mostly growls. I still have to keep an eye on anything Uli determines is high value to her and put it away. She at least now let’s Emmy chase her in the yard – otherwise It’s like she has no concept of play. No more blood has been drawn and just waiting for Emmy’s eyebrows to grow back on the side they shaved – otherwise her torn eyelid healed up fully without issue.
Emmy has a vet check-up this week and I’ll talk about titer at 16 weeks. So far I’ve held off on any non-essential vaccinations. My vet’s titer charge is around $240. I called around Vancouver vets and the cheapest is $130 – from those that even offer it.
Emmy met my parents’ poodle a few weeks ago (at my parents house) and Bentley overwhelmed her – plus unfamiliar environment- so she wasn’t interested in playing with him. They will bring him over to my house today for a bit.
She still hates the crate (has never spent a night in it). Working on getting her to go to the door when it’s potty time. She at least is good about going in the same spot first thing every time I take her outside. The trainer in Camas has classes and puppy drop-off (just puppies and trainers so they play and work in basic manners and skills). We need to enroll.
Hope all is well with you! Time to get outside, let’s the dogs play and plant some more flowers, vines and shrubs in my yard. It’s a beautiful time of year.
Speaking of the Titer Test — if you just call your Vet office and ask about having one done, in all likelihood, you are going to have a similar experience to Jill. There is; however, a new Titer Test that is doable in your Vet’s office. We are ever so thankful that Dr. Calhoun agreed to order the test. We know that they (Idaho Veterinary Hospital) have done several in-house titer tests.

Jill, we so appreciate you–your loyalty as well as your commitment. Too bad about the early encounter when Udi lashed out at Emmy–being protective of the bone. Yes, there is always the risk of something going sideways when you incorporate a new fur family member. We are glad that things are working out. Thanks for your hard work to get past this issue.
