Today is the second anniversary of our adopting Meeka, so here’s a little update. She’s still doing well. She’ll get a nice walk and an extra “Denta Stix” treat today.
She gets a high quality dry dog food, Happy Tails, which she loves. Meal time is one of the highlights of her day. She still gets to have off leash walks in the bush, the occasional chance to splash in water, and comfy places to relax.
She’s also still very photogenic. Here are some pictures from the past two years.
I haven’t had a lot of time to post in the last little while. Living something that approximates real life has been a full time job lately! Our band played a couple of music festivals and I was quite involved in helping make one of those festivals run. In addition, work has been crazy because my job is ending and there’s a lot to do to wrap things up.
So, here’s a short recap. She’s much less nervous than when we first got her, although she really did settle in pretty quickly. I suspect that it helped that I visited and walked her at Dog Digs several times before bringing her home. She was probably about 18 months old at that time.
On Christmas morning, I took Meeka for a nice romp on a frozen lake. She loved it. She always gets more excited when we go somewhere we haven’t gone before and this flat expanse inspired her to run and play with great enthusiasm.
“Burst Shot” mode on a camera is a wonderful thing. It enabled me to get this shot, which I most likely would not have been able to make otherwise.
Warning: what follows may not be for the squeamish. However, it may also contain some useful information for people who care for dogs.
I took my dog, Meeka, walking down by the river last night, off leash. Nobody else was around and she had a great time running back and forth and in and out of the water. Unfortunately, she got into a bunch of discarded old fish parts on the beach and ingested some of it before I was able to get hold of her.
For the past several months, we’ve been looking at adopting a dog from North West Animal Shelter. Yesterday, Meeka finally came home to live with us. She had been rescued from a bad situation and was generously being fostered by Cheryl at Dog Digs kennels.
