Valentine update

We picked Valentine up from the vet Monday evening and she's at our house temporarily. Brandon was off work Tuesday and Wednesday so by the time I got home in the afternoons she was following him around like a little shadow. She still flinches when you reach to touch her, but once you find the right spot to scratch, she melts like butter. And even though she's hesitant when you pet her, she really prefers to be close to one of us all the time.

She's doing well in her crate though she hides in there a bit too much for me. We're going to move her out to an ex-pen in the next day or two to see if that helps her adjust a bit more. We're also going to introduce her to Frankie soon as we have a wonderful offer for a foster home with one small male pup.

I'd also like to offer HUGE thanks to my vet for only charging me for a fraction of the work she had done. Her 12 days at the vet included a spay, x-rays, multiple panels of bloodwork, a heartworm test, a fecal, treatment for whipworms, antibiotics for mastitis and a heartworm pill. Not even considering the boarding or the huge handle I put the clinic in, that should at least be $500. I only paid $200. Needless to say, I'll be taking lunch by the clinic one day soon!
