Patty,

I am beginning to believe in destiny.... I hope you had a wonderful evening with that pup... She is such a cutie.

You know the saying... 'Chic Magnet'.... I think you are a 'Pup Magnet'.

Oh, Patty, I'm so glad you got to take her home for the night. She looks like she would be quite the snugglie and kissy pup once she calmed down. If no owner is found I wonder if there might be a golden rescue organization close enough to your area that they might be willing to take her until a forever home could be found? Of course, I think you and Tim would provide a wonderful forever home for her but am respecting that you've mentioned waiting a bit before considering getting another dog. Regardless of how her story ends, I'm glad you and Tim got to enjoy some time with her.

Haha, I love this Tami!

So, we had taken her by a vet office last night and found no chip. I stopped by Petco and picked up some sample bags of Wellness Puppy kibble, figuring she'd been eating kibble of some sort and didn't want to upset her little tummy with too much of a new food.

I waited until about 6:30pm to feed her 1/4 cup then feed another 1/4 cup at 7pm. I'd been trying to wait hoping her owners would call and she'd get dinner at home. She had some softer stools but luckily no runs from a food change.

This little girl was hypervigilant. Every little sound she turned her head. And followed me underfoot like a Vecro pup. I baby gated my living room/kitchen area and she stayed in there with me. While she was very active, she was also very respectful. Didn't chew on things she shouldn't, didn't try to get in my trash, wasn't real mouthy with her puppy teeth, she seemed to be housebroken too if you were paying attention (which I was!). She would go to the back door, sniff a second, walk a circle and that was it. I'd take her out and she'd go!

She was a jumper like most puppies are. Ali's toys are still sitting in the basket on the floor and she sniffed them but didn't play with anything I didn't give to her. (haha...Ali wasn't that good as a puppy . She was a mouthy, chewer).

She settled down about 10:30pm and slept on the floor, then on the pillow I had out. She start on her side and then rolled on her back with feet in the air. It took her about an hour and a half to get used to the sound of my humidifier glubbing as the water moved down in it. I took her out at 2:30am and she peed. I was worried about her little puppy bladder since she went so often in the evening.

This morning at 8:30am the housing office called and said her owner was there. So I ran her up to them. He was happy to see her. He didn't say much but had told them they'd just gotten her Sat. and she'd dug out of the yard. I guess they don't have any other dogs. I can see she has some separation anxiety. She's young and wants someone there constantly. Whines if you leave the room.

I told him I fed her 1/2c total last night and 3/4c food this AM though the instructions for a 30# dog were 3-3 1/2c a day (I know recommendations are usually a little high as well). He said oh that's plenty. Hmm. Said they'd been feeding her Kibbles and Bits and would switch when she was a bit older. Sounded like maybe they'd been just leaving food out but I can't imagine with the way she hoovered her food that it's around long. I did give him the Wellness sample bags I had gotten. She seemed to have some general itchiness, though she was very clean. I hope she's not an allergy girl.

She was a treat! Boy, I'd forgotten how much work puppies are! I did teach her to go out my dog door which was fun. I also made her sit before I put her food bowl down last night. Took her about a minute and a half to figure out what I wanted then this morning it only took her a 1/4 of that time. Fast learner!

Here's some pics of the Sweetheart. Found out her name is Duchess Be prepared for an onslaught of cuteness, LOL.









I kept trying to decide if she's mixed with anything. Her head might just be a blockier golden, not sure. Was fun for the night!

My sister is supposed to come this Wed-Sun so we'll be busy. Glad she found her way back to her new family.

Patty

I agree with Tami...I would be out running until I collapsed to find her. Slowly, but surely a sign is being given to you... Have a great time with your sister Patty!

She looks like she was very comfortable with you and your place in the pictures. A darling little girl! I hope she gets some ID and does well with her new family and home!
