While waiting in the streets, Babushka also went into heat, and whole packs of males would follow her everywhere, dogs several times her size. She also caught outdoors one severe storm before we managed to secure for her a place in foster care locally, then developed kennel cough followed by pneumonia.
Leaving behind her misfortunes, Babushka is an incredible old lady, always full of energy and happy go lucky, and always glad to be with people and other dogs. She's also brilliant at walking on leash in the park, and she is the utmost lovey dovey lap dog. Because of her very sweet and beautiful personality, we suspect her owner must have passed away, Babushka probably being dumped by her owner's relatives. Otherwise, we cannot imagine why would anyone dispose of a golden dog like Babushka.
Here's Babushka these days, on her way to the vet (by the way, she is also a brilliant patient and accepts calmly her antibiotics injections at the vet). She loves to go for a run and just loves to be taken out for walks:
Babushka has already been spayed, she had her teeth cleaned and her eyes checked. And the vet also gave us good news: Babushka is not even that old, probably in the range of 5-7 years old only. She's still got so much more of her terrific self to give to the world!
