Zoe just had mom and dad and 4 other male dobies that tormented her.. they had to separate her from them.. there was a divorce involved etc... so from what Kathy here mom or former mom said she is doing a lot better with me .. she is not stressed eating a lot better.  She always had a sweet disposition.  Mike had not met her until the other day when he came home from wyoming.. he just loves her... she is a little thin you can see all her ribs so I am going to try to put some weight on her..

Merry Christmas everyone

Everyone that sees her and she hugs thinks she is sweet.. she loves to hug.. she actually sometimes puts her front legs on your shoulders.. but mostly she snuggles..like in the picture with my grandson..

thank you Lady Kate.. and Sophie

That picture is the lovingest.

But then she traded lovers when she smelled cooking? I bet her nose made it all the way to pan level!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, love to hear more stories about the swety Zoey.

She looks like such a cuddlebug!! Sweet is the word that springs to mind every time I see her. Seems like this is a great match on all sides. So glad you all found each other. Was rereading old posts the other day and saw the posts from when you were still looking for your Zoe. Worked out so well!!!!

Yes originally she was on craigs list and my friend at the rescue told me about it.. but for some reason they did not get my request when I emailed Kathy.. but this second time she contacted rescue and they passed the info around again.. I emailed her again and made plans to bring Zoe to me being Kathy wanted to see where Zoe would live.. worked out well.

I DID a quick google look. seems a lot fo people use baby wipes like for paws and quick wipe down when traveling.. some warn not around eyes and mouth because you could get an allergic reaction..

they do have puppy wipes but of course they are more expensive..

For me I would use baby wipes but around the face a soft paper towel with water.. when traveling a plastic zip lock with wet paper towels or a plasic container.. I found Viva makes a plain white soft paper towel we use for us all the time.. they are strong also..

I would remind if baby wipes are used get the scent free etc kind

Sometimes, I feel that when they are laying their head on you, it's not so much a dominance thing, but more like a 'hug'....depends on the dog, I suppose, but Zoe looks like a hugger to me.

I can tell the difference.. she is a hugger. but I can tell when she is trying to dominate.. it is a lot less now than it used to be...

What IS it about those fabulous fawns??? They steal your heart and never let go..just like their 'other color' cousins.. but even more so. They are so unique and lovely.

Dreaming.. how interesting you mentioned that.. We did a thread on rescues;the quirks they all seem to share and nightmares seem to be one of them.

Sofia gets them at times and is visibly upset. It breaks my heart, she whimpers and cries, so i gently stroke her and whisper. " It's okay, you're safe." She stirs a little and then settles to a nice comfortable sleep. I wonder if she's reliving her street life or the trauma she's obviously been through.

Someone said that it's healthy for dogs to have REM sleep, and I agree,but to watch her like that is so sad. So I will disrupt that particular REM.

I let her dream for awhile ... she had male dobies at her home that bothered her... they finally tried to keep her separated because she was visibaly tormented.. I could tell the way she would eat she would run get a bite and step back.. 

I usually pat her tell her it is ok when she is woofing and whining..and running..

People love her coloring she is soft looking like her personallity..
