Meet Beau ....

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Meet Beau ....

Postby PatsyMFagan » January 5th, 2019, 10:08 am

my new foster dog who arrived yesterday.

Beau is a staffie cross and quite a bit bigger than I am used to :o However, she already has someone interested in giving her a forever home... my role is to get her over her separation anxiety (as she was left for long periods of time every day) and to get her pain under control with regular medication - she has Discspondylosis and arthritic hips. :( She snuffles and grunts like a pig and snores …..

She has already made herself at home and never takes her eyes off me.

Just a bit confused - if she’s a girl, why Beau rather than Belle? :tutu:

Lost in her past history I suspect

Actually the DT spelled her name Bow …. I thought that didn't look right, so perhaps Bo ? She's definitely a lady … and currently laying round the back of me on my armchair complete with my special cushion ;) She has, this morning taken to jumping up there the minute I get up to do something :rolleyes: :lol:

Bo would seem to make sense - like Bo Derek :tu:

ETA Staffies are traditionally addressed as Bod or Bodge so could be a tie in

What a lovely thing to do. She couldn't look more comfy curled up on the sofa. :D
She looks quite tiny to me but then our great big husky boy is curled up on our sofa currently!
Her markings are lovely, that perfect spot on her head, at least she wasn't unimaginatively called after that! :lol:

she was left for long periods of time every day)
There are two adult labradoodles that moved into a small semi at the bottom of our garden, both owners work (leaves early, gets home late). From the start, both dogs sit in an upstairs window and bark, bark, bark. At one point during the summer she must have left the back door open and they came out howling. I did go and try (tactfully) and let her know about the noise. Her comment was, 'what am I to do?' She does have someone who walks them once during the day but I don't think she realises the row they make. To me, they seem distressed. I have let the RSPCA and council know but it seems as long as they are 'looked after' they are powerless. I wish people who choose to have dogs could hear the extent of the noise they make when they are not there...... it is just not fair on the animals or the people who have to listen to them.

We have, on occasions, gone indoors and turned on the radio to cover up the barking.....and we have a third of an acre space, beautiful as this area is, the lay of the land creates an echo chamber and the noise seems so much louder.....

On a side note, we are very careful what we say out doors as voices seem to carry and get louder with all the gullies and gulches we have locally.

Uschi, I think Patsy is only dog sitting until the new owner turns up.

Zosh, DIL's neighbour had dogs that drove the neighbourhood (semi detatched houses in residential area) mad with barking and whining from 5 dogs which started at 5am. Complaints from residents have been taken seriously, investigations made and notices served. The owner has to find a solution. I have every sympathy for the owner but having heard the dogs it is unacceptable. My point is that they were taken seriously!

I understand that and I think in a way that is an even bigger gift, letting go of a creature you come to like or even love.

Yesterday evening we had our first walk and I have to say that Bo is an absolute star on a lead … she trots just ahead of me, constantly looking over her shoulder to make sure I am still there and will sit when I say so at kerbs. She's not interested in any other dogs either, a relief for quite a beefy strong dog.

Today she was left alone while I went to Zumba. She was alone for 90 minutes and hadn't destroyed the place, but was soooooo pleased to see me when I got home, I almost got licked to death :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :tu:

Good for you two!!! I hope that you can restore her confidence that she won't be left alone for ages.

She sounds like an obedient, well-behaved girl.
Good-natured too.

Today Bo had a Vet check … she still wees and poos in the night, so I have been asked to monitor her consumption/volume of water and take along a urine specimen when she goes back for her vaccination next Wednesday … :shock: :aww: :rolleyes: :scared: If all goes well, she will be on the list for adoption. :tu:

She has now wormed her way up the stairs at bedtime, where she spent the first night alongside me on the floor, but then last night decided she was going to share my bed.
