BHRR’s Leroy is coming to work with me tomorrow to get a current weight, have a thorough exam, do blood work including a heartworm test etc.

Latest dogs that he has been integrated with are BHRR’s Torque, BHRR’s Potter and BHRR’s Nessie. He still does avoidance in any situation that makes him uncomfortable.

The counter surfing is in full swing and he has begin to nudge and bump quietly for affection while I am working on the computer. He has also begun to show me some spunk(WHICH I love!) for when it comes time for him to go back into his crate, he will play bow and trot away and then bounce, turn and face me and play bow some more…..He is fairly good with his manners and while he may trot away, he will let me take his collar and lead him to his crate.

He does yawn a lot right now to de-stress and, he is so good in his crate. Still not one sign of any SA. From the moment he came into our home, into the ‘Gwennie Boot Camp’ and the rules and, he has been so mindful and respectful. He did see HQD use my coffee table as a stepping stone to get to the couch(GOSH Forbid, it was in her way! – rollings eyes) and, he thought, ‘hey, she does it, I should try also.’ That was nipped in the bud pretty fast.

He LOOKS nothing like the photo’s that I originally were sent. He is easily 50 pounds less than what those first photo’s show….and, we shall rule out any medical reason for his current body condition.

He will be coming with me to the PAWS Event – just on the Saturday for people to see why it is so important for BHRR to exist AND, why your donations and support mean the world to us! He could use some bath mats for being soft and cushy plus stable(do not slip and slide like sheets and others materials do), I put them over the dog beds and piles of blankets for these emaciated dogs  to help prevent hygroma’s and pressure sores.
