OUR PUPS IN MEDICAL NEED...
Sue and Heidi
My first meeting with Heidi was actually more of a meeting with her foster mom. Heidi barked at me and wouldn’t let me touch her. She did calm down and I got a good look at her, and immediately fell in love with her. There was another family in the running to give her,
her furever home.
Heidi came to live with me in May 2021, the timing was perfect since I started working from home due to the COVID pandemic. Now, I was in love with her, but I still had work to do to make her fall in love with me. She made herself at home on the couch, and my bed and our bonding began! We went on 2x daily walks and began exploring our environment, took basic obedience training and started venturing out into more public place to work on socializing and calming her reactiveness.
Our first road trip was to Colorado in July 2021. I learned she doesn’t like hotels, she barked at every single sound she heard. I didn’t get much sleep! She learned how to go up and down stairs, met all the family dogs and even learned to swim in a lake! We’ve been on many road trips, some day trips, some vacation trips, she’s even learned to paddleboard. We go hiking every weekend, exploring all the trails Arizona has to offer! Heidi has made lots of friends at our local dog park and enjoys chasing and herding all of them!
Heidi has become my “ride or die” adventure companion. She has filled my heart with so much joy, I can only hope she feels the same for me!
This is the first picture I took!
