Dog for a Day Update:
Sandy is a pretty, sweet 10 year old boxer mix. She was a bit nervous in the car but I think just needed to get used to it. She was super excited to come into our home and play. And play and play! In fact, I would have never guessed her age if I didn't know it. She had so much fun with her toys especially her ball. Running to fetch, playing with the ball herself, even keeping herself entertained. She was happy and playful for our entire visit!
She seems to know basic commands but just needs some refreshing. She will need more leash training and/or a harness. She did pretty well except when seeing other dogs or squirrels. Sandy does need to be the only pet in the home.
Dog For A Day Update
Had a wonderful day exploring downtown with Sandy. The corner cafe's manager actually let us inside to eat, got her a blanket, ice water, and a snack, (your volunteer David works there). I'd highly recommend it for people looking for a place to stop with a dog.
