2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Adelaide (Addy)   Tue Mar 26, 2013 6:55 pm

Miss Addy was adopted into my home on Tuesday, March 19th. She was welcomed by her new sisters, Brendol (who is a recent tripawd due to OSA), Aissa, Mathilde, and Morrigan (for more information on the rest of the pack, you can visit Brendol's blog at http://brendol.tripawds.com ).



Addy, formerly known as Murphy, had a bad fall and break to her front left leg when she was young. Her owners at the time did not have the resources to get her leg fixed. As she grew, the leg started to bend due to the growth plates had been impacted severely. In the following picture, you can sort of see the direction her leg was taking.



Fortunately for Miss Adelaide, a nice couple heard about her and decided to take her in from her previous owners. Adelaide is retaining her first name, Murphy, as her middle name in their honor. They had friends that got together and raised money to help Addy get her leg amputated. They did look into getting the leg just fixed. However, the surgeries that were going to be required were very extensive and were not considered a very good option because they had a low success rate estimated.

On October 1, 2012, Adelaide underwent surgery and the leg was removed. The couple that was taking care of her, Tiffany and Blake, did a great job with her during her recovery. They really loved Adelaide and were considering keeping her as a part of their family. However, their older dog, Heidi, was just not adapting to having a young spirited girl in the house. So, fortunately for me, they posted on the tripawds forums that they were looking for a home for this sweet girl. Right now, Miss Adelaide is somewhere around 1 year old. I am thinking of adopting 4/15 as her birthday, so that I can remember it going forward because my memory is really terrible. She is sweet tempered and very playful.

Her new sisters, Brendol and Aissa, and I met up with her and her previous pawrents on Sunday March 17th in a dogpark in Dunwoody. She immediately had a blast at the park. There was not another dog nor person that was not going to be her friend. Brendol and Aissa thought that she was pretty ok too. My only hesitation was what bringing a young one into the house would mean, and how were the other two sisters (cats) going to handle this change. But on Tuesday night, the 19th, I went and picked her up and brought her home. It has been almost a week now, and she has settled in really well. She is VERY INTRIGUED by the cats. She doesn't show them aggression, but she has to know what they are up to at all times. I am keeping a close eye on how this progresses. Here is a picture of here keeping an eye on Morrigan...


And lastly, here is a picture from her first night in her new home. That tongue is often hanging out the side of her mouth, just showing what a goofball she is.


She is all puppy, so I am sure there will be many stories to come. Right now, I am trying to find a day care for her to go play once or twice a week so that she can spend some good time with younger pups. Her sisters aren't completely up to running around as much as she would like.

More later...

Thanks Kevin and Emily. She is definitely a learning experience. RIght now she is barking at the cat. Playtime today was interesting. She has the attention span of a flea. We played ball, stick, keep away, and tug of war. All activities were short lived because she would then be like, "SQUIRREL!" Crazy girl. But she is lovable too.

Just an update... Addy is going to day care! I found a nice dog training academy near me and work that also takes about a dozen dogs a day for day care. She passed her interview with flying colors (even giving kisses to the lady - baby girl is no fool). And starting Tuesday she will go 2 times a week. I think she is going to absolutely love it. They have play time, and rest time, and agility and nose training too. Here was Adelaide on the way to her interview...



As another announcement, Addy has discovered Kong! And the cats are happier for it. She played with that thing for hours last night. Here was Addy with her Kong (sorry, its a little grainy)...
