:Autumn RosePosted: November 23, 2008
I love this photo Kathy B – Oregon Kathy – sent of Rose!
Sorry I have not updated you for a while on Ms. Rose. She’s just settled in
so well that I forget sometimes that she’s not always been here.
Rose continues to battle allergies off and on — lost her whiskers to
scratching again, but they’re back and almost 3″ long now. But she
alternates the whisker scratching with rubbing off her eyelashes!!! Silly
dog! Trying a new ointment for the lids so hope they improve soon. Maybe she
can have eyelashes and whiskers at the same time again.
Rose spent a lot of time this spring, summer and fall exploring the “far
reaches” of our backyard — before this, she’d stay close to my side or on
the deck if we were in the back. I’m sending a picture taken just after she
was plowing through maple leaves, searching for squirrels and/or the nuts
they’ve buried. Nila has taught her to come running when Nila finds a
squirrel on the fence or up a tree. It’s very comical to see Nila leaping
back and forth over Rose, as they try to “get” the squirrel!
Hope this finds you and yours well.
