Just because I am home all the time now and don't possibly have enough to do!!!!! Today I decided to buy a rescue dog! She is a purebred Chi just like my original dog. I saw her advertised online and just couldn't let anything bad happen to her. I really understand Chihuahuas now and thought it could be nice for my boy to have a friend. He gets so lonely and is way too attached to me. Today went really well for them both which is awesome. We're on track!!
My daughter named her Fizzy, which is not too far off what she was being called so she responds already. I took her to the vet ASAP after paying for her. She received every vaccination she required, they did a blood test to ensure she was not already infected with heart worm (hence the shaved neck). I washed her in the pet shop because she just smelled awful (the person is a smoker) and she had hair dropping everywhere. I was covered in it. I spent ages using our shedding brush and pulled out a ball the size of her head (with ears).
She is fat!!! They seemed to just feed her too much, and she was living in this space really no bigger than 2m X 2m so didn't walk or run anywhere- and she had a baby a few months ago (now desexed)... She has some dental decay too which we will fix up in a couple of weeks. I am very hopeful for the future, everyone ended the day happy which is fantastic. My daughter had told everyone at school she was getting her own dog and she is calling herself Mummy and taking care of the pup. It's good. I am so tired now, tomorrow I need to do uni work!!!!!
