Card-a-Copia: Post-Dog Crafting

As some of you know, I recently adopted a rescue dog and BOY, has my life changed!  Here's a photo of Bianca after her first grooming.  She was so matted on the back end, the groomer had to shave her down.  She's good on her leash and has almost learned "Stay."  (Not doing too great with not barking at/chasing the cats, but that will come when I better know how to train her!)  She currently has a dislocated hip that may require surgery.  I'm waiting to hear back from the vet to know about that.

Because she's a rescue dog, I don't know anything for sure about her, but here's what I THINK:

1.  She is about two years old.
2.  She's a poodle mix.
3.  When she's actually got hair, she's white.  (Hence the name:  Bianca means white in Italian.

Here's the "bounty" of the past three weeks, which is especially feeble given the new addition.  Apologies for the photos, I have TRIED and TRIED to take a good picture with this fancy, expensive new phone I bought, and it just isn't working very well.  (But, thank you, Sparkle Smith, for helping me learn a few new things about the process today!)

Congratulations on your adoption of Bianca!! Give her some time to settle in. Working with rescue dogs A usually takes about 2 months for the dogs to really settle in to their new home, atmosphere and environment.

If she needs surgery - that will throw in another upheaval. My latest rescue was home for 5 minutes before blowing her ACL in her knee, requiring surgery. She was a dog that was to be euthanized for biting, but I couldn't let that happen, so I took her home. The surgery has really delayed the bonding/trust issues - but we're taking it slow.

I'm sure Bianca will give you year's of love!!
