No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
“Hi Melody, We are in love with Bylia, and she does seem to know that she has reached her forever home! She and May (our cat) are getting along fine. The cat gets some kisses she wasn’t expecting, and it’s pretty funny, but she has clearly decided Brylia is her and rubs against her. Brylia is loving our huge yard, which gives her plenty of space to run at top speed. She is a champion runner! She is learning not to dig up the garden, and she adjusted quickly to life with us, coming out of her shell almost immediately. She is certainly a snuggly baby, and loves to give kisses and get belly rubs. It took her a few days to get the hang of “catch” and she still loves to just run off with the ball and chew on it, but we’ve had a lot of fun playing ball, running around, playing peek-a-boo and Vyla even taught her a trick with her squeaky toy. She is great on walks and is definitely led by her nose.
As for us, I would say it has been transformative having Brylia come live with us. She has so much personality and love. She likes to sleep in with Vyla, and then at a certain point, she can’t wait anymore, and she jumps on the bed and wakes her up with kisses on her face, so I usually just hear laughter coming from the bedroom. Today she joined in singing with us when we were singing harmonies. It was hilarious. We can’t imagine a more perfect dog for us.
It has been a total delight and we are looking forward to getting her into training next week as she already does pretty well with certain commands, but she is smart enough to get really well trained. Thanks again for all the work you did to help rescue and bring her here!”
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
