This is the picture that was on her Craigslist adoption ad. We fell in love with her right away!


All tired out after a long day of car rides and adjusting to the new house.


Hanging out in the kitchen. We just moved and haven't had a chance to unpack everything yet due to temporary renters taking up space.


This is progress! We've been trying to gradually introduce them to each other. Stormy (in the picture) is cautious, but is braver than Freya, who is nowhere to be seen. Both will stand their ground when Gaia approaches, and she's learning to leave them alone.

I like how she lays. My old dog does the same thing with his back legs when he lays. Somehow it must be comfortable. Glad to hear the cat adjustments are coming along. Everyone will be in harmony before you know it.

"What is this?"



"Oh! I like it."



Her first grooming. She was not a fan. xD



"Whatcha thinking about?" "Oh, nothing... Just... Dog stuff."



"No, mom. I won't sit like a lady. I'm a dog, not a lady."



"Ha! You can't see me when I'm in my fort!"



"Boo! Here I am!"



(She was watching a scary movie with us.)
"Oh no! Don't go in that room!!!"



"I can't look anymore! Tell me when it's over!"



Post Spay. Poor thing was not feeling too good thanks to the anesthesia wearing off, not to mention the spay. Sad



"I can't figure out why, but I'm pretty sure I hate you right now."



Poor thing was feeling miserable the first couple of days after the procedure.



"Can you let me out, please? I forgot how to dog."

Oh my. She's so adorable and gorgeous! She's going to be a real looker when she's fully grown. Lol. My old Husky, Rosetta used to lay like that, except her feet wouldn't be facing the sides, they'd be facing all the way behind her.

She is such a character. lol. I think she handled the Reindeer costume better than many. Mine would have never held still to even get a picture of it.

She thought we were playing a game when I first tried to put it on lol. I don't know what possessed me to do such a thing. Normally I hate the idea of putting animals in costumes. The reindeer suit was too cute to pass up though. xD

She kinda looks like a hedge hog in color when she is wet. She's so cute. Such a sweet face. Did she think you were going to spray her in the face in the second picture? lol.

I think she was about to shake water off of her. Hubby had to be in the shower with her to clean her, and I had to sit outside with a chair pressed against the door so she wouldn't escape lol. I took a bunch of pictures over the top of the door. Just about died laughing at that one when I got to it. xD

My girl looks so pathetic for baths. Shakes, shivers, and cries like you were killing her. I love how Gaia's wet and may not love bath time, but she is still smiling for the camera.

All those pix are hilarious! I always wonder what they are thinking when they get that concerned look lol. The cats are always worried about their next meal. Diz, who knows, le sigh, 'just dog stuff' is right!

Hubby is measuring Gaia for her Service Dog vest! She wasn't sure what to think of the tape measure, and tried to eat it at first. xD



She's very behaved in this picture, but when I first put the vest on her, she started spinning in circles trying to get it off lol. She doesn't mind the vest at all now.



Working on her manners in public! This was her first time wearing the vest in public, and she did great!



"Yay! Mom let me on the bed!"



Posing for the camera. She's more photogenic than I am lol!



Here is a picture of how Gaia alerts me to low blood pressure prior to an NCS episode. Sometimes she paws at me urgently, other times she crawls on top of me and licks me frantically. I managed to snap a quick picture of her pawing at me when she alerted one time.



We had a long day of training on Saturday. She went with us to PetSmart, and then to Walmart to get my medicine. She did really well, and only jumped on one person, but started to get stressed near the end because there was so much going on. Baby steps! She's just not used to being around tons of people for too long yet. She pressed her face into my leg all the way home. <3



"Dog Selfie! Didn't quite work out too well because my arms aren't long enough. Also, I have no thumbs. D:"

That's awesome that she is doing so well with training. Are they going to work with her natural form of alert with the pawing or are they planning to change the alert to something else like licking?

I actually decided to self train. I don't have the extra money for training at the moment, and the service dog handler groups that I joined informed me the training company I was going to use is no good. So I'm kind of taking one step at a time. Most of the people in my service dog handlers groups have self trained and are offering advice.

I'm not sure which alert I will try to solidify. Just taking things one step at a time lol.

Post-episode. I nearly passed out in the shower, so she decided to keep an eye on me while she chewed on her bone. She kept glancing back at me every so often to make sure I was okay.



Being goofy during public access training at Walgreens.



Practicing "Leave it" with treats on her paws.



"WTF is THAT?" (public access training in Walgreens)



Working on the "under" command. Service dogs need to stay out of people's way, so she is learning to hide under objects on command.



Loose-Leash Down-Stay
(The leash is only tight because I had to take a step back to take the picture.)



Sit-Stay in Walgreens



"What does that say? I can't read."



"Oh. Right. Leave it."

Haha yep! It seems that she finds that the most comfortable position. Every once in awhile she acts like she wants to sit "normally" but then her legs slide out from under her. xD
