Just a FYI for those interested. I had lunch at Margies the other day. She wouldn't let me take her out because Loca couldn't come, she doesn't have all her shots yet. To say Margie is in love is an understatement. Loca is quite the diva now weighing in at almost 2lbs, while she will be a smaller malt the vet figured her extremely small size was due to the coccidia and stress. She seems to be growing like a weed, eating everything in site and determined to catch up. I keep trying to remember to bring the pictures of her to work to scan so you can all see the lil rat. And I say that with endearment because she in truth did look like a lil rat at first now she is a cute lil fluffy puppy. Her personality( the tasmanian devil on crack) has made Margie decide that as soon as the vet clears her she is going to start obdience and agility. Which is awesome because now Margie has somthing to do during the day and evening. I found a trainer that will do reduced rates for her being a retiree and on a fixed income. This could not have turned out more perfectly! Loca isn't a sit back and cuddle kind of girl she is lets go do something which is what was needed.
