Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Louella
On a serious note Louella went to see Dr. Reno for her spay. Standard procedure on all Doberman Pinschers is to test clot time before doing surgery. Louella’s clot time was too long and we will not risk taking her to surgery without testing for Von Willebrands disease. Her spay was cancelled while we wait for results. If she tests positive, then we would move her spay to DVSC where they can mediate her ahead of time with helping her blood to clot properly after surgery.
Daily Dose of Louella… I think Louella has found her Valentine Someone find this girl a Daddy! She literally loses her stuff if he leaves the room and she can’t find him. Fake Daddy has a bit of ADD/OCD (who doesn’t) so he doesn’t sit still. She is constantly following him around. Do you see why Lulu might be too much dog in Fake Mama’s house? But when he does relax, she is right there beside him and will literally launch the coffee table to get to him. Let’s be clear, Fake Mama has fed Louella since day 1. One would think that starving Louella would attach herself to Fake Mama. Nope!
Louella went to see the vet today and weighed in at a shopping 50 pounds. That’s a gain of 15 pounds in just a couple of weeks. Fake Mama is feeding her well, and she is a happy girl.
Louella came to the ranch yesterday to play with the dogs while her fake mama Liz helped us with intake and to get these dogs cleaned up and groomed pretty. Louella is gorgeous, and she has gained a substantial amount of weight already, her coat shines and glistens. She loves her 4 meals a day and some satin balls to boot. Liz reports to us that she does have prey drive and she stalks the cats. Liz has what we call dog cats so they don’t tolerate her nonsense but we will not be adopting this little girl out to a home with cats of even small fluffy dogs. Louella is a little triggered by squeaky toy sounds which leads you right back to her prey drive. She needs to live with a family with larger dogs and no cats.
Miss Lulu is definitely gaining weight. Fake Daddy attempted to weigh her by weighing himself and then holding her, sorry no picture. According to my scale she weighs 45lbs, at intake she was 35lbs., everyone’s scale is different so that is a guesstimate. She is showing more of her silly puppy personality every day; she gallops around and acts like a silly nut. Bodie did initiate some play this morning and she was pretty happy about that until he started chasing her and then she became a little weary. She still complains between 1st and 2nd dinner and bedtime. We have resorted to the water bottle method, there is no squinting, all I have to do is put it in my hand and she will reluctantly go lay in her bed next to Fake Daddy and huff. She is starting to eat a lot slower, so that makes me hopeful that she is aware that there will be a next meal.
She is still the sweetest little Doberwoman around.
And maybe that is a shinny collar with crystals on it, who’s asking; her DRR collar was nowhere to be found when Fake Mama picked her up.
