Status 8/24/13

Started a new Pokemon fanfic, since I currently have writer's block on my other ones. It's called Pokemon Fenoa'in, it will probably be posted soon.
Since ES Blog is getting kind of personal, I'm considering started a new blog for all my everyday stuff, and keep ES Blog more to the environmental stuff. If this happens, my family and friends will most likely have "code names" to protect their privacy.

2nd Foster Dog update: Angel

She's got a home in New Hampshire now. :) A 90 year old man who should have no trouble with her, she's nice and calm.
She will be going to her new home soon, probably this weekend.
You were lovely to have, Angel. <3

Foster Dog Update: Angel

She's settled in well. Acts like a normal elderly dog.
She's sweet and quiet, but I fear that Lulu is teaching her to alarm bark.
She's dong well on her treat training, too. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Foster dog: Angel

Yo readers! Yesterday my uncle Steve got a new foster dog from Golden Hugs Retriever Rescue. Her name is Angel, and she's a real sweetie! Very tolerant, loves to be brushed. And she has a TON of hair. We brushed her undercoat yesterday and today, and both days we ended up with an entire bag of shed fur.
She came from Kentucky, and we're in Vermont right now. :O She was found on the streets, picked up by animal control, and was schedualed to be euthanized that day. Apparently she and the other dogs were forced into submission with an electric rod! How anyone could do that to such a sweet puppy is beyond me. She loves dogs, and going for walks. Not sure if she's OK with cats. She's friendly and submissive towards everyone, and she's a little fat. She's about 9 years old, but fairly energetic, getting spurts of energy.
We brought her to the dog park yesterday and she was very good, being nice to the dogs, but not too interested in the people.
It turned out that she had fleas, and we gave her a bath with flea shampoo and the hose, which she obviously did not like but tolerated very well. Such a nice dog. The fleas are almost gone, we think, and a few rounds with the flea comb should do the trick.
She's missing a few teeth, unfortunately.
She's in foster care to get her more used to the house, but from her familiarity with the leash and door(she asks to go out and in!), we'd say she was once someone's pet. Please don't leave your dog on the street. If you have to give them up, don't abandon them, bring them to your local no-kill shelter!
Note: From her traumatic experience in the animal control basement,  she's extremely afraid of kennels. Again, please don't put your dog through this. Or any animal. Care for them like your children.

More updates as the days progress.
