We are still talking about a 10 week old puppy right? I am completely baffled that this lady was that afraid of a 10 week old puppy. Thats like saying a one year old child who bites another child in daycare is a serial killer.

wow... I guess I was lucky she'd talk to me on the phone...But in any event...Focusing on the one positive here... She is a beautiful and 99% healthy puppy.
OH OH OH... My vet gave her eyes a good looking at and there apears to be NO corneal damage! Woowhhooooo...Of course if I had more time with her I'd take her to tech and have them look at her eyes and do her surgery, but she needs her mom. And vicki is MORE than capable of getting a firm grasp on the situation and taking care of her.

That is the cutest little puppy. I love the little bow...it makes me want to put one in Tess's fur (oh I can imagine the annoyed look she would give me).

I imagine it would look much like the annoyed look that Vicki's puppy gave me... and then she forgave me.. and then I took it out. :-)

It made me think about putting a bow on Simon... but he is still holding a grudge over the bumble bee costume I put on him for Pet O Ween.

I can't imagine a puppy that small intentionally biting to hurt. I got Jasmine at 12 weeks, she was from an abused situation and then abandoned. She was the sweetest thing as a little one, but she liked to play rough. I'm assuming because she never had the socialization with her litter mates to teach her not to hurt when she plays. She'd bite and growl and shake the crap out of her toys as she ran through the house.

I'm thinking this is just puppy play, and this lady has never seen it before because none of her pups has been this, do I say, playful? Maybe having been isolated from the others, and when she put them together Epsilon, having never been taught to play, didn't know how to play, was just so excited to be with other dogs.

Jaz would draw blood sometimes with me, and I taught her "be easy" she learned quickly. She still plays rough and at times gets carried away, even with other dogs. "be easy" calms her down enough to not hurt when she is playing. She also knows what "ouch" means, and will immediately stop doing whatever and look at me, cos "ouch" means something could either hurt her or someone else.

Something doesn't ring true though. If the AC had her quarantined for 10 days, then would put the pup down, why would this lady want to adopt out such a vicious dog, knowing it would hurt someone else? I'm wondering if the AC was ever involved in the first place? All so confusing not being there and knowing first hand.

I'm just GLAD this baby has a forever home!

Carla, now that you have photo posting skills, it is time to refine them a little. When you have especially large photos, it is better to make them a little smaller at Photobucket. Usually the smallest crop only makes it a little smaller, but the dial-ups can open them much easier, and it will keep the page from widening, making it necessary to use the back and forth scroll to read the journaling. :wink:

Vickie's new baby looks so beautiful with her hair bow.

You did a great job with everything!
