I thought I’d do a book giveaway!
First, let’s talk Dexter!
It’s been 12 days since he came home. During those 12 days Dexter has:
learned to walk on a leash
learned to master the stairs
began to seek out human contact
decided to sleep under my desk during the day
ate! That’s a huge accomplishment since he didn’t really for the first few days!
Has only pottied outside
decided that Maddie is not a dog-eating monster
sniffed noses with Mo and Sloan
has come to accept that doors are walls that move and aren’t going to eat him
All of these things are HUGE accomplishments in such a short period of time! We still have a long, long way to go though. We’ll get there, I’m sure.
Dex is also still nervous with the other dogs. He snapped at Copper once and hasn’t come out to investigate any of them. We’ll do some on leash introductions this weekend.
Now, for what you’ve all been waiting for!
I am giving away one copy of The Dogs Who Found Me: What I’ve Learned From Pets Who Were Left Behind by Ken Foster.
This will ship to the winner directly from Amazon.
Please leave a comment telling me about a rescue pet that touched your life in order to be entered. Contest open to all residents of the US and Canada. I will draw the winner’s name on Friday, Feb 12th, 2010.
Next time you’re looking for a pet, I hope you consider your local animal shelter. Save a life, adopt a homeless pet!
