Our Good Patient Shows Progress at Night

Our second night with Macy went even better than the night before. This time when placed in her kennel, she just fussed for about 5 or 10 minutes and quickly settled in for a snooze. Last night she went to bed without any fuss at all. She wakes me up about every 2 1/2 hours with a short bark, big flashy smile, and a wagging tail to let me know it's time to go outside! She's quick to do her business and goes back to bed easily.

Yesterday we started working on some "come" training. She's getting better. Training her is tricky because she's usually "there" anyways! She loves being with us, cuddling and playing. Last night she started to play fetch with us!

Much to Grace's delight, once Macy gets the nibbles and "zoomies" out of her system, she is a perfect patient! Grace accompanied me to Macy's first visit to our vet and took good notes...

Checking the heart and lungs just like our vet did....
hmm, sounds good...

Here she is "collecting a stool sample". She didn't have a good view of this procedure, but she knows it has something to do with the dog's tail area...

Being a good patient is exhausting!


  1. Oh how adorable! I'd love to cuddle that sweet baby!

  2. I can't decide which picture I love more...So adorable!!!
