After a tearful discussion with Dr. Sarah, Bella is now taking Ativan 3X a day instead of twice a day. Meanwhile, there has been a small advance with Bella's hobby. As I mentioned a few posts back, I am following the suggestion that all dogs need a hobby, and I suggested chewing to Bella. While I have had no way of knowing how Bella has responded to this, each of the pig's and lamb's ears have mysteriously disappeared. After a harrowing journey through road construction to the pet store, I brought Bella a gift to replace the vanishing treats. This time her eyes seemed to widen as I offered the ear, and later I was able to get this shot:
Is it my imagination or does she look happy? Perhaps Bella has decided that chewing is a fine hobby, after all. An hour later the ear had vanished.
This page is not professional, and has nothing to do with the rest of my website. I'm writing as Bella's mommy, just for fun. Perhaps this blog will be helpful to others working with former puppy mill dogs.
