You all may remember I got Honey from a local shelter back in January, after she was rescued by the side of a road in NM, almost starved to death and nursing 8 puppies. We think she might have been a res dog who probably got pregnant the first time she went into heat. She seems very young.
We had oodles of problems with her at first. She was incredibly hyper-vigilant during the night, hounded (pun intended) our cats mercilessly, stole food and went in the trash any second we turned our backs, was terrified to get in the car, and, when we started our veggie gardens, she dug through them trying to dig up the compost (to eat, presumably). It's taken her all this time to get the hang of being a pet. Best of all, she's actually relaxed enough to smile now! The day she first smiled - about 2 weeks ago - was a happy day at our casa!
So I wanted to share some photos of our happy, smiling, adjusting-nicely girl.
Here she is, our own little flower child:
Just digging the fine weather, lying out in her very own yard:
Smirking in her sleep, content on the couch:
*Edited to add: Holy crap, that's a lot of dog hair on my couch!
