My husband threatened to move out if I brought a dog home. But morally I could not let Lia with her sad, longing look stay in Rosiori´s hell in Romania. There were five dogs in her "box"; one m2 per dog and a lot of urine and excrements. (I didn´t know she had been rescued to a vet station i Bucharest because of an infected ear and her thin condition.) There was some problems getting her to Sweden, but finally we fetched a very shy dog from the airport and drove her home through the snow storm. She was very scared, wanted to stay in the basement, but I "scratched up the stairs". After that she got braver. And braver. She´s curious. After two monthts we can do everything we want and take here everywhere. She is also helping dogs with behavioral issues, since I´m a dog coach at weekends (and I send the extra money I earn to sterilizations of romanian dogs and cats). And my husband hasn´t moved.
