Hi again everyone! I apologize on the length of time that this has taken, but here is a pic that I took just now of Sugarplum. She had been overdue to be groomed, and because of her life as a former puppy mill dog, she isn’t used to it, hence she doesn’t tolerate it very well. I’m forced to do it in sessions or increments, and I still have a lot of difficulty with her legs and feet. I just did her muzzle and head, and that was a miracle in itself that I was able to do that without the help of another person. She has made soooo much progress since I adopted her. She still isn’t completely paid trained and occasionally has accidents in the home, and she’s still skittish. She still walks away somewhat briskly when I approach her, but she doesn’t run like she used to, and once I do pick her up and put her on my lap, she could sit there all day if I let her, and I’ll take that any day. If those are the only faults she sustains knowing the kind of life she lived then I consider her very blessed and very fortunate. I’m still planning on taking a pic of her when her ears get to the length that I want them; in that pic of her she will be wearing a dress with bows in both ears. I’ve also included again a pic of her from the shelter. What a makeover, just look at her now! And her tear stains are gone since all those rotten teeth were extracted. You wouldn’t believe that’s the same dog.
