It has been a year since the lovely Ms. Carolina found her way into my life, and what a year it has been, with many, many highs and a few lows along the way. Carolina settled in pretty quickly, learning how to follow her sister Emma to learn the way around the house and where the treats are stored. She struggled with being in a kennel during the day, going so far as to chew her way out of a wood end-table kennel that was such a nice addition to the house. By the way, she also managed to get her sister out of her new wood kennel as well! Oh well, what's a few dollars among friends...
She is doing much better during the day now that she has limited run of the house and can sleep on the bed all day.
She made it through a cold and snowy winter here in WI with no real issues, even burying herself in the snow one day while I was shoveling. Never expected that from a Southern hound.
She walks very nicely now and is very vocal when she sees other people and dogs walking around, even getting her sister to sing along with her. Sometimes I think my neighbors think they are walking me around. My vet says she is in good health and doing well, except for the extra people food I feed her. To which I say, "What's wrong with steak and sausage for her?"
Again, Thank you so much for sending her to me. I wish I could adopt a couple more, but not sure if there would be any room left in the house for me!
Paul, Carolina and Emma
