More Dogness

The picture in the previous post was made at the shelter in April or May. Here is Lani after 5 months of good nutrition and lots of love.

Wow! What a difference. From pauper to princess in only 5 months.

You are a true wonder worker. We should all be so lucky.

Actually, we feel lucky to have her in our lives.

It's pretty obvious that she was not anywhere near as old as the 18 month to 2 years estimate we were given. She has grown way to much for a dog that age. She weighed 39 pounds then and is a little over 50 pounds now. She is also quite a bit longer bodied and maybe a little taller.

My advice for anyone thinking about adopting from a shelter is to go several times and spend time with the dog you think you want to adopt. We went every day for a week and took her out of her kennel and spent 20 to 45 minutes with her each time.
