Sherlock, Bella and a Ball
A typical week at our house, with all the usual busyness of work and commuting and trying to get ready for Christmas. Behind the scenes I've been talking to Lab Rescue about Sherlock (who's having an identity crisis because I keep calling him Reggie). I've also been discussing Bella with the Golden Retriever Rescue.
With Sherlock (Reggie?) because he's just the second dog I've had for Lab Rescue, and I've never personally met anyone from the rescue, I don't know really what to expect and how they manage dogs with issues like Sherlock has. Are they willing to provide whatever is needed, or do they have a limit as to what they will do? Of course they don't really know me either. So, maybe we're each treading a little lightly. The approach seemed to work in my phone conversations with them this week. Its been decided that we'll put Sherlock on the anti-inflammatory medications and supplements to see if that makes a difference for him. After the holidays we're going to add in either swim therapy or acupuncture. I agree with that, but what I don't agree with, is to letting him remain available for adoption while this is all worked through. But it's a decision I can live with.
