Say hello… July 7, 2012

…to our foster dog Rainier.  I considered calling him Teradog, but I think we’ll reserve that one for someone who will be a permanent member of the family.

Rainier is a Landseer Newfoundland who will be staying with us until we can find him a forever home.  Poor guy has a lot to deal with, however.  This is what he looked like when we got him:

Poor guy’s coat was a solid block of mats.  There was nothing we could do but shave it all off.  Once we did that, we discovered that he has an ear infection, an eye infection, a skin infection, maybe some dental problems, and tummy issues.  Poor guy is a mess.

He seems to be adjusting very well and is an amazingly calm dog.  Gigadog…not so much, but this is the first time she’s ever had dogs over for a long-term visit.  Also, she’s now in her camping kennel, which I’m sure is not helping.

She will adjust. Just remember she picks up on your energy, so the more nervous you are, the more nervous she will be! 🙂
