Dazee Finds A Home
~ With Sena
On occasion, we get lucky–and we find a Golden Year Placement for a retired female. Dazee–did not turn out as we planned. I won’t bore you with all the details, but let me sum it up that she was the result of a cross between a couple of lineages (both carried the Longhair gene, but neither was related to Stackhouse). The plan was then that we could raise Longhairs with Stackhouse, but things didn’t work out as planned–so, we decided not to mate her again.
Finding the right placement for Dazee was challenging. She is a quieter gal that likes things pretty much her way. Not that she is not friendly, she is–and she gets along with other dogs. But she doesn’t take to a lot of commotion or activity. Ideally, we needed a quieter lifestyle. And along came Sena, who is a bit older (my age), and she needed another Weimaraner in her life. And so their journey together began a couple of weeks ago.
~As the Journey Together Begins
(Day One) She’s a precious soul. I think we’ll be fine. She has no interest in going outside. She is not interested in much–including food.
(Day Two) Another day, and now she is eating -chicken soup got her interested in supper. She wasn’t interested in her dry stuff but was definitely interested in my chicken soup so I put a tablespoon of broth & a few pieces of carrot & cleaned right up. Same with breakfast. She’s drinking too. In the past I explored about a doggie door here but just not feasible. So I have to participate. I think too she was exhausted from her travels yesterday. I’m sure each day will bring something new. Good for both of us.
(Day Three) A new day– I have a different girl today. She’s initiating & going to the door. Not resistant to the lead now. Up & more interested in life. 😉
(Day Four) I left the back door open & closed off other free space & just went away. The birds & squirrels were teasing her. She’s been out several times now. Briefly, but HALLELUJAH. Progress! (See the above photo–she loves her domain.) 27 frickin’ degrees out there. She’s an outdoor girl after all. 😁
Yup. Birds & squirrels. 😁We are doing very well. She’s just right for me. 😉
(Day Six) And yet another significant change–And, now she’s only requiring crating if I leave. Great progress. Yes, when I saw her birthday, I realized I should get to have most of her 5th year, which also made me happy. She’s a precious little soul & now I have a family again.
(Finally at One Week Plus) Oh definitely–this girl is heart healing. I was in despair, and that’s all gone. Not to say I don’t miss my boys every day, however, I am functional again which I was becoming less each day til last Saturday. My friends also know I’m different, affirming this was needed and she’s so right. Ok, busy lady, thx for all once more I will be in touch. 🐾👋
