Mali the GSD X
Mali equals her GSD x brother Foster in both height and
charm, her character is beyond perfect and those that gave her
up to rescue will never know what a perfect canine companion
they let out of their lives, but who ever they are, they have my
thanks as without their mistake, my blessings would have been
less as Mali and I would never have found each other, she is,
without a doubt, the light at the end of my tunnel.
Mali continues to both amaze and delight me with her
intelligence, after only being lifted in to the bath once after
a muddy ( and fox poo roll) walk, she now charges up the stairs
and into the bath after every walk before I even have my coat
off (and dirty looks come easy if I do t have the water
temperature just right) though I'm sure it's the towel drying
she loves the most as she now seems to think I should dry her in
my towel too when I've had a bath! Cuddles are in endless supply
in this house and Mali refuses to be left out, she likes to sit
on the settee draped around my neck!
Bedtime is fun, she can curl up so small that the no dogs on
the bed rule laid down by dad a million years ago doesn't count
and she spends her nights snuggled on any of the beds she
chooses, of course this means Foster has the same rights( two
GSD s are actually quite comfy I can now say from experience).
Walks continue to be fun and sociable, Mali can cover a mile
a minute off lead, two if there's seagulls to chase ( she
doesn't seem to realise she can fly, yet!) and she has two
retriever friends now for off lead play, not to mention a
collie, a lab, the ducks, several children, a staffie, several
good old British mutts, actually the list is endless as Mali is
a diva, yet adorable.
Her rescue work has continued and Mali was amazing when asked
to share her home with a short stay foster GSD x, they played,
spread mud and muck every where, shared food, water and fun, but
not mummy, Once it was time to chill out and relax, Mali kept
two legs on the ground and two stretched over me ( I'm guessing
she was scared the big puppy might eat me)
Her nursing career continues, the NHS ought to put her on the
payroll as she can alert dad his blood sugars are high when his
count goes one above normal, this of course makes life easier
for me but not for dad as he can't even sneak a few biscuits in
without getting caught!
