We are still in Vero Beach and I decided it would be good for Lilly to be around other dogs. It is hard in a community of 120 and 70 miles from Omaha and her friend Rua to find doggie friends. Lilly started this Monday for 1/2 days. On the first day, her tail was between her legs so far, I was surprised that she could walk. She stayed close to the attendant. The doggie daycare that I took her to has the dogs divided by puppies and small dogs, med dogs and large dogs so she was was puppies and small dogs. On the second day her tail was still down, but she was following the pack and not clinging to the attendant. Today when I dropped her off and watched from the window, she went in with her tail up and waggin and then stopped to poo- I guess she is part of the pack family now. I am sad that she will ony have one more day before we leave for Nebraska.
We have not taken her to the beach, maybe tomorrow afternoon before we leave. My fault, I didn't want to get sand in the car and in the bathtub and have to clean both. Lilly gets groomed on Friday morning so I can just wash her off in the shower and we will have a clean puppy on our trip.
Lilly weighs 14 lbs and knows sit, stay, down. She has to sit and stay for her food. This morning when I was giving her her breakfast, I was so focused on her that I dropped the food; chicken and kibble all over the floor- Lilly thought is was raining food. I really need to get her some private lessons to teach her no jump. It will be easier to bring someone in the country for private lessons than drive to lincoln/omaha one day a week for 6 weeks.
She traveled from Nebraska to North Carolina for a week then to Florida for 3 weeks. She adapts beautifully. So happy that we started her on the bells on the door to go outside when she was little. We just hang those bells up, throw her blanket on the bed and toys on the floor and she is home no matter where we are. I give her chicken with her food and found that you can go to Subway and get their grilled chicken for 1.50. This works well when we stop for the night, we pull in to Subway, get food for us and chicken for the girl and back to the hotel room. If there is not a fridge inthe room, I put the remaining chicken in a baggie and stick it in the ice bucket with ice. Lilly eats soom inthe monring and we toss the rest. We should bring an ice chest and pack her food and ours but we didnot think ahead on this trip and we were so loaded down with clothes for three climates and I don't remember what other crap, we didnt have room
I was hoping to get her a sister this summer but our place in Arizonia only allows one dog. An only furbaby she will be.
