More of Izzy

maybe I should not call her #6- she does have a name :-) 

i thought we had the whole "energy" level taken care of - play ball for a half hour, walk for about a half hour, and all should be good....yes??

she played for about a half hour with Tasha -- but -- she came in and walked around the house crying - staring out the window, roaming around like a lost puppy dog....which I suppose to some extent she is.

since it wasn't raining, and i needed something in town, i decided to take a walk to town - of course with Izzy and I didn't dare leave my dog home - so Dazzle came along.

I worried about what i would do when i got to town - like - do i tie them up some place, and what happens if they don't stay there or if they keep barking?

thankfully Brian came home in time to go with us.

Izzy does NOT like walking on the road, he tail was about as far as any tail can get between a dogs legs without being intraverted inside of her body.  poor thing...

the walk was decent, mabye twenty minutes one way - so she had a good fourty minute walk, and a half hour play time....no problem right?

no, we got home, we all get settled in - get dinner on the table, and the entire time Izzy is pacing back and fourth - crying again. 

i was really getting to be very nervous, Brian finally said that perhaps she did need to go potty - even though she had recently, but it wouldn't hurt to try.  So - out we went again - she went out took care of buisness, we took another short little walk (her, dazzle and myself) and back into the house we went.

~~~~Izzy slept the entire night - she completely passed out on the couch.  So....tonight....play, walk, play, potty and maybe she will be set to go?

we are not used to having a dog that "needs" attention.  Dazzle just chills with us.  She will lay on the couch with the kids while they watch tv, or sit in the office if i am on the computer, or even when i am sewing she is laying under my feet - that is what kind of dog she is....chill.

Izzy on the other hand, you can't get her to simmer down for more than five minutes - but AGAIN - she hasn't been with us that long ------ and we have no idea what her life was like before she came to live with us, so....for now....we will be what Izzy needs most -- a warm, safe, fun house to be at until she can find her forever home.  We will do some playing - and walking - and some resting. 

I think she will be with us for a while - with her mange - i doubt anyone will want her - people are funny that way.  We will see on Saturday when we have the thing at WFC.  She is a cute dog, super loveable....but she needs a huge house, five acres, and someone that is active - not a bunch of ppl who play xbox/watch tv/watch movies/play on the computer/sew or scrapbook....of course maybe eventually she will need to take her engergy down a little?  or maybe dogs like her just don't?  not sure - but ....for now...she is our Izzy, and we will do our best to be there for her.
