Joy needs help with Zola in San Diego

Hi everyone, Its been a long time. For those who don't kow me or have forgotten me, I'm the originator of Giant Schnoodles. Its good to connect again, although this is very difficult for me to share. I am supposed to be the helper, not the one asking for help. I have been going through a difficult time. I became very ill with a flu virus or something. After 5 days in my version of hell, I spent 5 days in the hospital. I am now in an acute recovery place. Did you know that these places send a marketing person around to hospitals where they promise you the moon to move into their place, where, if you are an old babe like me, they are paid by medicare or cal.They promised there would be no problem having my dog. Wrong! Zola is trained as a service dog. However the stress she went through during the emergency (I won't go through the details here)left her nervous & somewhat protective. Apparently,She barked at the owner, I didn't see it, it could have been a cat on the patio. Consequently, they want her or me out by the end of this week. I am 76 years old & didn't handle the virus well. Although I've recovered,I'm still weak,dizzy, sleepy & not ready to fend for myself. Needless to say, I am sad. I don't want to part with her permanently. I don't want to give her up. I need someone to care for her, or me, or both for awhile til I'm back on my feet. I am using a wheelchair. She pulls my wheelchair, does canine freestyle doggy dancing which I use in my physical therapy. I have many skills & years of experience that I can offer as trades: house and animal sitting; train your dog, train you &/or your family; Business stuff: help get your invention patented or to market, or assist in starting a business or taking your business to the next level.I have authored several books. I can ghost write or edit your book or help you get your book going. Zola is a spade 8 year old female Giant Schnoodle,non shedding, my breeding, which means extensively genetically tested. She is friendly to people she knows. She is up to date on all her shots. She is dog friendly, with big & little dogs. Most people consider her &/or me fun to have around, but we both sleep a lot. You can have us both or just take Zola for a couple of months til I'm well enough to take her back. Please call me and lets talk about possibilities. We are both very flexible & open to all ideas & suggestions to get through this difficult time. 858 616-7079 858-576-2273 My stupid smart phones take turns working & dying alternately LOL. I'll post some pics when I'm not sleepy. It is really hard to hit the post button. Here it goes. Puppy Love Inventing Joy & Furry Folk
