I just can't believe it has been two years since we got Nova! I posted on my blog about it but I had to share with you guys too because all the people of CP have been so supportive of us. It has not been an easy road but me and Nova are really grateful to every one of you on here who helped us along the way. Here is my blog post, complete with a LOT of pictures-
I can't believe it has been two years since Nova came into our lives. Two years since she was handed to me at a vets office as they warned me not to take her. Two years since her bony little body shivered in the back of my car crate and I put on gloves to get her out. Two years since we realized she was not adoptable, she was not a foster dog- she had landed in her forever home. Two years ago we wondered if she would ever stand up straight, if she would ever eat in front of us, if she would ever pick up a toy. Looking back on that time I'm not sure exactly what we were thinking was going to happen. Personally I did not have a lot of faith in what kind of dog she was going to turn into. I just knew that there was something about her that I knew deserved a chance, I knew Copley loved her immediately and more unconditionally than any dog he had ever met before and I knew she was family. Not even metaphorical family- she was found within a mile of where Kerri was dumped and other than her height they look identical so who knows?
I was worried about her, and worried she would never adjust to living inside with humans. I talked to our trainers and they helped, our vet came the house and had so much faith in her- maybe the most of anyone. Still, the first week we had her this was what we saw-
Then she started standing up and walking around so we expanded her world to this pen-

Then relaxed just a little bit and celebrated her first Christmas inside with a family. She had a stocking and her Grandparents sent her gifts. More importantly to her she was warm, and safe and full
Then tail tucked, backed into a corner she started eating in front of us
