As you may have heard, we got a new Beagle a week and a half ago. Her name is Wendy. I took her to see my vet the first full day we had her and posted the report here. Since then she has received a round of Panacur, two doses of Ivermectin and is finishing up her Doxycycline. She is a good eater (that is, she demands a second breakfast and a second dinner every day) and began putting some meat on her bones right away. Her coat is also looking much better – the copious dandruff now gone and a nice little shine beginning to take hold.
Wendy is a great snuggle buddy and sleeps with us every night. She often attempts to convince Surrey that she is a super bed buddy by trying to squeeze into whichever bed Surrey is curled up in at the time. Usually all Wendy can manage is to get her back end sort of on top of snoozing Surrey but she has squeezed herself full in there once or twice. Thankfully she’s tiny.
Here is the photo that was included in the forwarded e-mail I received about Wendy being in a catch and kill pound:
She does not look particularly thin to me in that photo but after she’d been there for however long she was, all her bones were sticking out which makes me wonder if they bother feeding the animals at the place and if they do, what are they feeding them? At any rate, here she is today, in all her cuteness:
For those keeping score, I got Wendy for free. It’s been a week and a half but the novelty has not worn off yet. That is, I haven’t put her on the 5 foot chain and hut accommodations in the backyard. For some reason, I find I still love her. Come to think of it, I still love Surrey too. And she was free as well. Go figure.
