ON THE BACK BURNER

May 18

I mark every week with Dixie. I still haven’t regulated her poops. I have finally found a food that she eats. However, since she still has digestive problems, I’m not sure it is the correct food. Another call to the Vet. I am hoping that it is still the hook worms. She has her final dose on the 21 st. She is another high anxiety  dog.  I have ordered a lick pad for her, which is a silicon pad that lets you smear some foodie that the dog likes on it and in theory, she will spend time licking and working out her anxiety on it. Wouldn’t that be an easy fix . In the meantime, she did leave my side to walk out of the room that I was in. Took 3 weeks, but that is a milestone. She has the fight or flight reaction when she sees other dogs. Mostly it is the fight that takes over. However, today she met the Yorkie that is smaller than she is and Dixie was very tense, but didn’t growl and become aggressive. Another milestone. I took her visiting over the week end and without any meds, she was wonderful. Walked in to the lanai where we sat a distance apart and fell asleep. so we will work on worms, tummy, aggression and anxiety this week. easy peasy.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
