Happily Kizzie is fine, she enjoyed her walk this morning and has been eating id kibble this afternoon, hand fed one at a time. The azalia has gone.

Kizzie ran up to him wagging her tail, then stood still whilst he examined him, more animated than she had been all day. I never thought she would allow anyone to stick a thermometer up her bottom, but she did!
Kizz had two injections to stop the vomitting and came home for more rest.
At 7pm she drank some water and ate a tiny amount of food - she would have eaten the whole can but she is on small amounts more often.
It is very hot here so she must drink or she will have to go on a drip at the vets. We will be keeping a close watch on her today. So far she seems a lot better this morning, if a little disapointed at the amount of breakfast I gave her.

Even with the distraction, Kizzie remembered her sit, down, gimme paw etc. She came running to me when she should. When the other puppies were having their turns, Kiz got bored and had a bit of a bark but overall I think Hetty was happy with her.
Our job for the next two weeks is to get her used to being on a short lead so that Kizzie can enjoy the fun summer school. We will get to try agility, obedience, barrel racing and longe training. It's just for fun and to see what Kizzie is capable of and what she enjoys doing - we can't start those full time until she is at least a year old, so it will obedience for the next 6 months at least.

http://www.blackjackdtc.com/ close by. Take a look at their youtube videos to see the amazing dogs they train. We are going to basic obedience classes but hope to attend their summer fun school this June.
I have my sausages ready.....

By the time I had managed to wash her feet I was drenched and covered in mud too. Tea will be late again tonight then.
P.S. Kizzie has learnt how to squeeze the handle on the hosepipe, what a bright girl she is.
Of course Kiz did a poop. I got out my bag and picked it up. Pierced the bag and stuck my finger in soft, warm, stinky poo. I don't think Sue will be offering to take Kizzie out any time soon. What is it with these bag manufacturers? I can't be the only one who would rather pay a bit more for thicker bags.

This is Kizzie barking at one of my favorite animals, the great slug eating and therefore very welcome visitor to my garden. We did try to round up Kizzie before she got covered in fleas, but she wasn't interested. I walked back into the kitchen and shouted 'sausages' and lo and behold who appeared behind me but Ms Greedy pants. And yes, I gave her a sausage, so even more chance of a splat tonight. The hedgehog disapeared pretty promptly once Kiz was safely back indoors.
I haven't trimmed the photo so that you can admire my burned grass, and my empty planters (guess who ate the plants?). Now my head is itching and if I have acquired a flea I will be offering a free puppy on ebay tomorrow.
Bad enough, but I was clearing out the fridge tonight ready for tomorrows shopping trip when the little monster reached over my shoulder and stole 200 grams of finest Yorkshire Ham. Miss Grease Lightening was out of the door into the garden before I could say "stop thief". You would not believe the grin on her face right now.
Extra newspaper tonight then....

As Kizzie approaches 6 months we discussed speying and it was agreed it would be best to wait until after Kizzie has had one season. Scarey eh? I will be trawling the net for advice on how to excercise a dog in season - we really do not want puppies. We also discussed the humping. Mathew thought it was very funny and suggested we teach her what is acceptable in public.

She may be one of the scruffiest looking dogs around, I know she looks as though she has been living behind the bins for a few weeks, and she looks as though she has dipped her face in a bleach bath, but she is lovely - really.
My Kizzie may be the only gay dog in the village. She has been humping her stuffed dog, her pillow, her bed and my cushions. It is a little embarrassing, if she was a dog I would have her sphericals removed. I am, however, very grateful that she hasn't started on my leg..
