Update On Noodles

111111Noodles Sleeping On Me

Hi just to update u on noodles. As u know we rescued her as she was deeply unhappy in her old home. At fist she wasn't getting on to well with William my younger male and I never viewed the rescue as a permanent thing just an opportunity for me to get her out of the place she was in and give her to a happy forever home.
As expected we have fallen head over heels in love with her and she is more than welcome to live with us for her remaining years.
When rescuing her I was told by her owners that she was ten and blind. When I got her home and took her for a check up with the vets I was told she is in fact fifteen, blind, and needs some teeth out and a scale and polish. I had noticed some big lumps and bumps on her teats. The vet wasn't sure if this was cancerous or not but assured me that she wasn't in any pain and it was just a case of making her comfortable over the next year or so. He did add that other than the above she was sooo healthy and happy.
She now gets on really well with William. there's no longer any rivalry and they actually play with each other and can eat there meals together right next to each other no problem. Understandably she was snappy and snarly and a bit bitey with all of us when she first arrived because she was scared and had lost all trust. I worked on some trust exercises with her and got a whole list of words to guided her around on walks and around the house. she now never growls or anything and knows her way around the house and can now run up and sown the stairs unassisted. She can even be let off of the lead on her familiar walks and doesn't trip over or bump into things because if I say 'careful' she just stops in her tracks or if I say' up' she knows there is a step or curb! She is so so happy, content and at home with us. Please upload this story onto the website so people know noodles is happy in her new home :-) I will do little updates from time to time to :-)
Also please confirm that u received the pictures I emailed to you earlier.
Many thanks,
Co she loves and trusts.rinne

This is such a lovely story, you are a very special lady not only taking on a rescue but training and giving a forever home to a  blind dog in her twilight years. It is lovely to read she has found a new dog friend in William and a family she now trusts and loves!
