Good morning world! Do you remember on March 25th, I wrote about Geri and Ken’s beloved Airedales, Katie and Robbie Dog? They both had cancer. Sadly they both passed away. Now, I have heard there appears to be an epidemic of cancer in pets lately. Have you heard of many pets getting cancer in your area? Just checking.
Geri and Ken had rescued both Katie and Robbie Dog. Last weekend they rescued another Airedale. Her name is Gracie or Princess Grace. The name changed from Delilah. Come along with me as we watch the transformation of Delilah to Gracie to Princess Grace. An Airedale is a very, very high energy dog. Also, a bit of a challenge as they think they are people. There are some behaviour issues but in time, Geri & Ken will have worked their love magic on Gracie.
This is Delilah when she was picked up at her former home in Calgary, Alberta. Unfortunately, she was not groomed and given little attention. Fed. No grooming.
In a word, she STUNK. the poor thing was confined to outdoors. That is not dirt on her hind leg. That is correct-feces.
The first stop for Delilah is the dog groomers.
This is not a happy DOG!
Looking shy. Shy-another word for anxiety and fear.
I wonder how long it took to groom her?
The beginning of a new life for Gracie
Her eyes show a 1000 worries. She does not know it yet, she has been rescued to live her life with great owners. The best!
On the balcony looking inquisitive.
A little less worried.
She loves to catch a ball, then races all around the yard, not mastered the concept of bring the ball back yet. Loves to run and DIG.
There you have it, a journey from neglect to love in one weekend. Geri tells me Gracie is sticking to her side like velcro. Very nervous getting into a vehicle. Time will heal all the wounds. Well done Ken and Geri. We are looking forward to meeting the newest member of our family – Gracie.
I will save the photo of the cherry blossoms for another day. Going to visit Mama this morning. I bought her a new summer cape for jaunts out of the residence. Family-who visit ~ PLEASE take her out for some vitamin D, fresh air, and a walk around the gardens. The rhodos are coming into bloom.
