Ignoring Me

He doesn't like change. I removed dog beds and door mats that made up the "safe" runway and now he won't even look at me. He'll be fine once he realizes he can walk on the wood floor without slipping.

Trachea guarding & happy weather

Here's another picture of Fonzie guarding his trachea (which he doesn't really want) and Farley wondering if he could grab it and run. Farley made his move, Fonzie barked, and Farley backed off.

He loves this cooler weather.

Trachea treat

This photo shows the end of a long stand-off. Farley (black hound) came to visit, and I gave them both a trachea to chew on. Farley usually gets his trachea at night so it was special for him to get one in the morning. Fonzie didn't eat his, which was surprising. But there followed an hour long try on Farley's part to get Fonzie's trachea. This is the final chapter, Fonzie looks so tired and Farley is getting the trachea.

Catching Up

My son and Fonzie. All of my fosters have loved him.

More than my other fosters, he likes to curl up to sleep.

Fonzie is fun and funny. Around 4:00 every afternoon he will stand in front of me, give me a hard long stare, and if I don't respond, will give me a bark or two. He knows it's not time for his dinner, but hope never dies.

He was quite frightened of my slick floors. I made a path, from the carpeted stairs across the wood floors, with dog beds and door mats. He would navigate to the kitchen like he was crossing a stream on stepping stones. A few more mats in the kitchen and he could make it to the back door. He's getting over his fear and I think soon I will be able to dismantle the roadway.

Walking with him is not an aerobic exercise. He likes to stop, look, listen, and smell everything! That is actually OK with me because I think it is good enrichment for him, I'm not as speedy as I used to be and it's good for me to stop and smell the roses also.

What a guy!

Here he is deciding whether he really wanted to go back inside.

Here he is doing he same thing that Tasha did.... wait at the top of the stairs so that when I come up I can scratch his ears and rub his belly. Oops, this is Tasha, not Fonzie, but they look the same from a distance!

Fonzie in the foreground and Tasha in the background. I hate to say it but Tasha was a mean girl today, and that was a side I never saw of her before. She is going to her forever home tomorrow so Fonzie and I will have a chance to enjoy life.
