BREAKING NEWS, BREAKING NEWS FORE ENYA - SEE HER UPDATE 18/05/15.
18-11-14 Enya (was called Fire) is a 8 year old terrier cross who is back in foster with us. Over a year ago Enya was involved in a traffic accident, against the odds she survived, but was left incontinent and with restricted mobility. Thanks to a number of very special people who have funded her hydrotherapy and provided extensive massage, she is now just like any other dog, loves her long walks and revels in playing.
.....Sadly, Enya remains incontinent, we are unsure if this will ever improve, but I remain hopeful. Her incontinence is easily managed. During the day when she is in the home she wears washable diapers which she happily lets you put on and makes no attempt to take off. At night she sleeps in a crate on vetbed (a fleece which absorbs fluids) this is easily rinsed through.
.....Enya has walked back into our home and is living very happily and amicably with our four large breed dogs. It is a delight to see her playing with our youngest goldie and colliex and hilarious to see her chasing around the legs of the two older goldies who are unable to keep track of her movements and have a very puzzled look on their faces.
.....Enya is a gorgeous, most affectionate little girl, BUT she is a terrier and has very strong terrier traits. We are looking for a very special home for Enya where she will be spoilt and cherished by her humans, preferably as an only dog but certainly not with small breed dogs.
.....Enya walks lovely on the lead, is happy to be left for reasonable periods and sleeps all night. She is a little ‘lovebug’ and is looking for her very own special person, could that be you?
Enya waits patiently for her forever family. She is content with whatever exercise she gets, from five minutes to a couple of hours up the hills, loving to snuffle in the long grass looking for mice or ‘maybe even fairies’. Enya does not ask for much in her life, just a warm bed, food in her tummy and to be cherished. Favorite pastime is to lie on the carpeted ramp up to our door and to soak up the last snippets of winter sunshine or to sit contentedly on my lap. Although it would be best for Enya to be rehomed as an only dog, she happily lives with my large breed males and she ignores other dogs when out and about.
24-02-15 UPDATE please read. Let me explain:
.....Although I am still hopeful that Enya's incontinence will improve further, she still remains doubly incontinent, despite regularly attempting to go to the toilet when in the garden and whilst out on walks, just like any other dog. BUT the only time she is incontinent of faeces is overnight when she is relaxed whilst asleep, during this time she is also incontinent of urine, whilst awake it is just spotting of urine, apart from when she barks. Overnight she sleeps in a crate, we line the crate floor with newspaper, then cover with fleece (vetbed) this enables her to always have a comfy bed where she remains warm and cosy all night, despite urinary incontinence.
..... When having free run of indoors, she wears washable pants with disposable pads, these are easy to put on and she is oblivious to wearing them. I think Enya looks delightful in her torquise pants which were very kindly bought for her, but check out the fabulous designer doggy pants on the internet of hearts, flowers and bows. We choose to use washable pants and vetbed that is washable, even easier and less work would be disposable pants and disposable pads.
.....In the vehicle she travels in a cat carrier lined with newspaper, she will run into it, turn around and wait patiently whilst the other dogs jump in.
.....Enya spent a long time in kennels living a solitary life, she is very happy here, she loves our big males and has learnt that it is not acceptable to attempt to dominate our big female dog.
.....Do not overlook this dear little soul because she in in a foster home, there are so many more waiting for the chance of that place. For those of you that have read this update, thank you from Enya and her foster family.
.....Let me further explain: When Enya is incontinent of faeces during the night, it is in the form of solid ‘pellets,’ which means that Enya stays nice and clean and in the morning this is shook off her fleece that she lies on and wrapped up in the newspaper that lines her crate, this is then easily disposed of. The crate floor is cleaned, relined with newspaper and a clean fleece, all done in seconds. Now that the weather is better, I save on electricity as I just wash the fleece in a bucket outside and peg it on the line to dry, a small amount of washing powder used and no electricity to pay for.
.....Enya is a hunter, so we are mindful where we let her off the lead as she will disappear into the undergrowth, and boy she can be so quick. Up the hills, Enya is off the lead with the pack, gone are the days when she would lag behind snuffling in the grass attempting to locate every mouse, now she keeps up with the big dogs and is very much part of the pack, but if she does get waylaid, then she is very responsive to being called and will come running with her little tongue hanging out. All this free running is building her muscles up, she is as fit as a fiddle and such a happy little girl who adores our big male dogs and although she now lives very peacefully with our female dog, they are never left together unsupervised.
.....This dear little girl loves basking in the sunshine and will spend many hours just lying quietly on the carpeted ramp up to our patio doors, when the sun moves around the house, she will be seen basking on the backdoor doorstep. What we get in pleasure from this little girl, far outways the little bit of extra work that is involved with caring for her.
20-04-15 UPDATE - Over the hills and far away.!!!!
.....Foster dad was up the hills with the resident pack and Enya. She wears a harness with a bell attached so to locate her whereabouts when out of sight. A hare broke free from out of nowhere, Enya gave chase, all foster dad could see was her bum disappearing in the distance . Panic set in - how would he tell me (foster mum) that he had lost her?
Time passed, more time passed....
.....Whilst rummaging in his coat for his mobile, who should appear? Enya was running back to him full pelt, happy happy, little tongue hanging out, jumped up on his legs and then rolled on her back for a tummy rub. This little girl is a superstar, she would be happy living as an only dog, or do you have male dogs and have a space for a little girl?
18-05-15 BREAKING NEWS, BREAKING NEWS.
.....I had always hoped that Enya’s incontinence would improve, never give up on your dreams, with all the free running and the build up of muscles, Enya over the last couple of months has shown great improvement. No longer does she require the wearing of diapers whist indoors, she will go out with the other dogs and mostly have a pee.
.....She is still incontinent of urine and faeces at night in her crate when she is fast asleep (as explained above) and will pee when she barks when running on the patio and when she barks in her carrier in the vehicle. Enya has learned to accept big female dogs into the household without issue. Has she mellowed with age, or has she accepted household rules that all must live peacefully? She is a delight to foster and can often be seen snuggling up with the resident goldies or foxhound Arnold. When out and about, either on or off the lead she is a pleasure to walk and meets and greets other dogs in a friendly manner.
.....Are you that special person who would be willing to share your life with a little girl who needs a little extra care?
I am still waiting for my forever people to find me, but foster mum says not to worry as my new family just don’t know about me yet. Foster mum also says that I am a character and that I am a good girl for having learnt to accept females that are bigger than myself into our home and to live peacefully with them, but the boys are my favourite to play with and my best mate is Perry who is a huge golden retriever who was also rescued by Many Tears. Bye for now, Enya x’
Enya is doing amazingly well in every aspect, she is just so grateful to be alive and is totally enjoying life, although she did sulk for a day after Marmite, a young big male foster dog who she would play with for many hours, went off to his forever home.
A fellow fosterer stayed, she held Enya whilst I cut her nails, to my surprise she just relaxed and did not protest as she usually would have done.
Watch this space for an update of photos and video footage which to our delight has already been shared on Facebook, you will see that Enya is just like any other dog where she can run, play, tumble and get up to all sorts of mischief, despite still having night time incontinence which is so easily managed, but I am hopeful that even this will eventually improve.
Happy, happy, happy is life, this little girl is just glad to be alive. Enya totally enjoyed having a trim and thinks that she is the ‘bees knees’ with her makeover. She absolutely adores her foster dad, of an evening when he sits in his armchair, she will throw herself on the floor by his feet where she will spend many happy hours with her legs in the air having her tummy rubbed by his foot. Sometimes she will launch herself onto his lap, on occasions taking him unawares by crashing through his newspaper, if she could speak we are sure she would be saying ‘SURPRISE, ONLY MEEEE!!!’
Just thought I would say hullo to everyone. Love Enyax
Enya is flourishing, she has come a very long way into becoming a happy well adjusted little girl with the aid of firm but fair consistent boundaries with nil tolerance of bad behaviour. Last week she accepted me cutting her nails without another person holding her, in the past she would have created a fuss and I also gave her a trim which she accepted me doing, she feels much happier for this. Although Enya has always lived very happily with males, she had problems living with females. Pickles, Tentie and Kettle on the website are our current female fosters and she will often be seen sharing beds with them along with our resident female golden retriever. Enya is in need of a very special home, we find her incontinence very easy to deal with. She would love a home with a garden that she could snuffle around in the grass.
