Pickles Update, March 2, 2015

Just a quick update since it's rather late, and I've got some things to do.

Pickles is doing well. She's lost a full pound since she's been here, and I can now feel a rib. Yes. I know. *A* rib. But that's a massive improvement over the Pickles that first showed up here.

Between the diet (12 pieces of kibble and 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of canned food) twice a day and the good 10 minutes a night of a good game of fetch and tug, she's beginning to get a waistline. She's got more energy, too.

One thing we're working on is sharing. She apparently came from an only dog home, and she's having a tough time understanding that all beds and pillows belong to everyone. Growling when someone walks by is unacceptable behavior. I make sure she has no toys down when she's around the others because I know that would just cause trouble.

But as you can see from this photo, she's learning. She's definitely learning. :)

I'll have more next week on our girl.

And remember, Pickles is available for adoption from Bark N Rest Retirement Center. See last weeks post for details.
