Another week has flown quickly past us, and I'm confident that it's going to end on a good note for Taylor. As the week has passed, she has become more and more confident and comfortable in her new home and seems happy. She's gotten her appetite back, and is right there with the other dogs when treats are given and when waiting for her dinner. While we're at work, she's just fine staying at home and is getting used to her new routine.
Taylor has a difficult time getting around, and I think the problem is her knees and hips. She has a very difficult time managing the two simple steps into the yard, and getting back inside always requires some help. We are encouraging her to use the ramp that I set up for her, and I'm hopeful that the time will soon come when we won't have to remind her that it's there.
It goes without saying that I'm taken with Taylor. She's a nice girl, with soul filled expressive eyes that are anxious to please. She has great manners and even knows how to "shake." I think we're all going to get along just fine.
