Sponsor Animal Update: Victoria
Victoria: 2nd Quarter 2010
Victoria continues to bring joy to her family. She is always happy and loves everyone. Her adopted mother and Animal League Associate, Lauraine, often wonders who is helping who and looks at it as they are helping each other. Victoria is outdoors more now that the weather has become nicer. Even though she is on special food to determine what’s going on with her allergies, she continues to scratch. Her mother gives her soothing baths. They are working on better leash walking – she’s still pulling them on her walks around our neighborhood and even though she is small, they think all that pulling might be stressful for her. The veterinarian advised that due to her heart condition she needs to be on a harness. She can’t have any constriction around her neck. Her mother bought a gentle leader and will be starting to train her to this. Right now, if she spots a squirrel or bird, it is difficult for them to hold her back. We can’t blame her for getting excited—flushing out birds and small animals is part of her spaniel instincts.
