After drinking some water she laid down on our sidewalk and settled in. I guess she felt like she was safe with us. She was bleeding, whether from fights with other dogs or from wounds inflicted by humans we don't know.
The kids were smitten with her. Initially they called her Voda because her ears were so funny and she reminded them of Yoda. We took her into the back yard and the kids set up a tent out there thinking they'd sleep with her out there.
We contacted the German Shepherd Rescue to see if they could help since the Pug Rescue had been a help to my brother in the past with my aunt turned niece Tootsie. The first couple of people we heard back from said they couldn't help and then a lady contacted us asking if she could meet the dog. She told us that if she didn't clash with her dogs she would watch her for us for the whole time we were gone provided that we promised to take her back when we returned from our trip. She told us she already had 3 German Shepherd and 4 Pugs and she really couldn't adopt another dog long term at this time. We agreed to her conditions and drove up to meet her. The meeting went well and Amber even agreed to go and take her to get her first shots. We are so grateful for God's provision of this lover of dogs who was willing to take on one more for 3 weeks for us.
|Number Five's first car trip - you can tell the kids don't like her at all, right? haha|
|She was kind of confused that we were leaving her and stared after us at the gate.|
|A quick family pic when we picked her up after our trip.|
|Lydia, our animal lover, is so excited to have a pet!|
|I think Lydia liked the kennel more than Rahab did. Rahab didn't do well in the kennel so it went into the garage.|
|Everyone loves Rahab.|
Finally, I leave you with some pictures from Rahab's first camping adventure to Dinosaur Valley State Park. She did great.
|I'm so cool I need to wear shades|
|Dino tracks are much bigger than dog tracks!|
Happy birthday, Rahab, we love you!
