But I said yes. My daughter is grown and on her own. she has had a few dogs, the last was a black lab that I had for a while but she found her another home. The other day daughter calls. "Mom, do you want Roxy?" This was a yorkie that she bought years ago, but she didn't get along with the black labs. Many of you know that I have a "few" yorkies already. Ok so I have mom and dad and devil son here with the Golden Retriever. Now I have Roxy as well. I can't help but look at this dog and feel like crying. She was given to one of daughters boyfriends mom who used her as a breeder. I got the dog knowing like mine that she can't have table scraps. Apparently that is all this dog had. She is covered with "hotspots". What brings tears to my eyes is that she has almost no teeth at all. This dog is only about 7 yrs old. I know the person who had this dog and I know she didn't out and out abuse the dog but she didn't do as much as she could have to take care of the dog.
After two days of trying to get her to eat the food my herd has, I have gone to the pet store, talked to them about food for her and something that isn't going to cost an arm and leg to buy for her. We finally came up with a combination that works. The dry food is a bit pricey but we have had two cups of food this morning. Also found some softer food that comes in Chubs that has to be refrigerated but I can deal with that as long as she eats. I may end up taking her to the Vets for a visit any way but I feel better knowing that she is eating and will be getting better.
