Smoke is a very sweet and laid back girl. Smoke has fit in so well here and so quickly and can go outside anytime she wants. She has already learned the doggy ramp to our big fenced yard...and our other dogs are being so gentle and kind to her. Smoke appears to be more interested in humans than dogs and loves spending time near her humans, playing with toys and holding her tennis balls in her mouth so the other dogs can not have them! During her first night with us, Smoke followed me around all night, wagging her tail all the while. Then she snuggled with me for a glorious golden snuggle. She is my little shadow, and we go everywhere together. She lays at my feet when I work from home and is never far from my hand for a pet and hug. She loves being brushed and groomed, too. Smoke has been drinking a lot of water and having accidents in the house, so we took her to the vet twice already for several tests. The tests are back and are indicating that Smoke has kidney damage from a past infection, plus high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. The great news, though, is that with some medication to help her kidneys function a little better, a low-protein high-quality diet, and exercise, Smoke could live out a fairly healthy and active life. With about 15-20 pounds to lose (both me AND Smoke!), we are enjoying walking the trails on our property regularly and having lots of play time with her foster siblings. Smoke makes it so easy to fall in love with her! We are lucky to foster such a sweet gal and look forward to helping her get better!
