It’s a beautiful Saturday here in West Tn. with temps in the mid 60’s and bright sunshine. It’s a good day to get outside and roll in the leaves! Well..play in the leaves anyway. I let Abi run for a bit while I got the camera out to catch some shots of her.
For those of you who don’t know, Abi is our latest rescue. She showed up at my mother-in-laws house a few days ago, skinny and starving and covered in fleas. Hubby just so happened to be visiting and he couldn’t stand seeing her this way so one quick phone call to me and she was riding back home with him.
She ate like she hadn’t ate in months then we let her tummy settle for a bit and gave her a bath. She was terrified of everything at first but she’s slowly warming up to new things. She still hates the leash but coming indoors isn’t a problem now. At first she wouldn’t climb or go down steps, she wouldn’t go inside without having to be picked up. Her tiny frame just sat in the kitchen floor and shook. A few days later and she’s sprawling out in the living room floor like she owns the place. The vet said she’s about 6 mo old and is healthy other than the normal hookworms/whipworms that most strays have. One little pill and those buggers are gone. Once she gets fattened up and socializes more, we can adopt her out to a loving home.
The vet seemed to think she’s a yellow lab/golden retriever mix but she has some learning to do. She could care less about a ball right now. Cats on the other hand…(notice the white blob in the background..that Prissy thinking she’s hid from Abi’s nose)
Prissy ..after Abi chased her up a tree. lol
The leaves have finally started to fall from the Cleveland Pear tree. It won’t be long before those orange and red leaves will all be on the ground and Winter will be here.
Hope the weather is fine in your neck of the woods!
