Pound Puppy 2009 Update 3

Shasta is shown here demonstrating the results of three cups of fine dog food fed three times a day. I believe she has put on over ten pounds at this point. You can see the ribs, spine and hips seem to be filling in great.

As Shasta has improved, she appears younger than the shelter veterinarian's estimate of five years of age. Our vet estimated her to be three years of age. She is getting a lot more personality as she eats her way out of starvation.

Halloween was her first encounter of things that go bump in the night. We only had one trick or treater but Shasta was woofing her alert as he started down the sidewalk. Her bark is normally some type of woof. She seldom barks and normally it is in response to some other bark she heard in the neighborhood.
