This was my first weekend with Maggs! She is a doll and getting very comfortable with people, other dogs, and MY SHOES!! She has moved 30 percent of my shoes from the bedroom to the living room. She has come a very long way in a week and I am so proud of the progress she has made with trusting those around her and branching out. She still refuses to walk on a leash and as compromise will walk along with me.
This weekend we went to her appointment to the vet in hopes of getting her girlie parts fixed but because of the fluid still in her lungs from being dumped over a bridge she was unable to have her procedure. We will try again tomorrow or Wednesday. I also heard a bit more of her story. Apparently, the kindness of a homeless man is what saved Sweet Maggs. He heard her cries for help and tried to save her and her brothers and sisters but only she survived. (on a side note: The following weekend after Maggs and family were dumped someone else decided to follow suit and dump their pups as too…SICK! However they were caught and will be prosecuted–AWESOME!)
Another exciting thing happened to Maggs this weekend…SHE GOT A BATH!! Due to her dry skin I felt sorry for the girl and gave her a bath using Shea Moisture Deep Cleaning Black Soap Shampoo and Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Conditioner both items I use and love and it left her hair shiny, soft, and smelling great and also curbed the itching 🙂 The entire time she shook and was basically freaking out. It took her about 45 minutes after the bath to calm down. After the bath she would not leave the doorway of my bedroom 😦 but being the trooper she is she came around after napping wrapped in a towel under some heat.
Hopefully she will get to go to her new family this week and play with her new sister and be loved on by her new mom and dad.
She played and slept hard the rest of the weekend!
