Never Hungry Again...

About a month ago, I posted about Bogart, a white Boxer that came into rescue in very poor shape.  Exactly one month later, he has gained back all the weight he needed and he looks amazing.  His foster mom gave him a lot of small meals, and he gobbled them all up.  He got the veterinary care that he needed, and he went from this...













to this...

No more visible ribs or spine!  He gained 20 pounds, and he has been living very happily with his foster mom and several doggie friends, until last night.  Then something exciting happened. 

Bogart was Adopted!

Now he's living with his real forever family, and he'll never be hungry again. 

Well, except for maybe right before dinnertime.  And when he wakes up in the morning.  I know I'm often pretty hungry right before breakfast.  So okay, I take back what I said about him never being hungry again.  Because if he's anything like my dogs, he will get hungry all the time.  And maybe he'll even trick his humans into Second Dinners, like Remi has been known to do on occasion.  But the important thing is he'll be well fed with nutritious food, and very much loved.

Hooray for Bogart. I love that face. It is wonderful. I am sure he gives his family lots of sloppy kisses!

Woowoo for Bogart! Gosh, what a Most Lucky doggie he is! (Do you think he has parties right before breakfast and dinner like I do? Cuz eating is totally party-worthy!)

And I thought I was the only animal who could gain 20 lbs. in a month. Good for Bogart! I wish I could smooch him on those gorgeous lips of his. He looks wonderful!

GOODIE!

He's such a nice lookin' guy. It's amazing to see all the positive that comes from foster families. He wouldn't have made such great progress without that family.
