Never a Dull Moment!
I don't know that I've mentioned that Sheba is our youngest Golden at six years old. Given up by her owners because she needed hip surgery, (that they couldn't afford) she came to us via the rescue in the fall of 2006 at almost a year old as a foster dog. Sheba always has something in her mouth and with people she is affectionate and leans and melts into you when you pet her. But around dogs that she doesn't know she can be bossy and wants to be top dog. There was a time after we adopted her that I thought I was going to have to return her to the rescue because she was picking fights with the other dogs, which resulted in trips to vet for the other dogs. However with some good outside help and the dogs figuring it all out, (and Sheba getting LOTS of exercise) she found her place within the peking order, but not at the top--Rudi is our top dog, and Sheba, I can tell has a lot of respect for her. Sheba's favorite playmates are CarrieAnne and Charlie who thinks we got her just for him--He loved her from the minute she first came to us, and that has never changed--For either one of us--Even with a swollen eye!
