Adoptions!

Some weeks I go to adoption events and none of the foster pets are adopted. Other weeks turn out to be amazing, wonderful, fantastic weeks that make it all worthwhile. Last week has been one of those weeks! First, on Thursday my foster dog Kirsten was adopted to the family that met her a week ago. They live on this wonderful property, have three kids and two other dogs, and Kirsten is going to be sooo spoiled there!    Then Jack/Rolo, the Yellow Lab was adopted from the shelter where he was staying.  I actually ran into his new family at the vet's office last night, and couldn't believe it was actually Jack (now named Bronx).  He looked very good, and oh so happy.  His new family seems very wonderful, and he has another yellow lab just like him for a sibling now!  Then on Saturday not only were three more of the nine puppies adopted (leaving only three still looking for homes!) but also my foster dog Rachel was adopted!!! She went home with a very nice lady who also has another dog.  The lady runs marathons and I think Rachel will make a great running partner for her!  Also on Saturday Buddy went back to his first foster home, so within three days I went from having four foster dogs in the house to only one (Ziggy - of course). The house is quiet, and I miss my fosters, but I'm also enjoying the break. Here is a brief video of what it's like to live with six dogs - four of them less than one year old. Usually noisy and hectic - always entertaining!

Yeah for new homes for so many doggies! I feel bad for Ziggy though... now he's all alone... ok not really, but no more foster siblings! He's such a cute guy and I hope he's able to find his forever home soon!

Yippeeeee! I'm go very much glad when your fosters find their Most Perfect Homes. I luved watching your video. It looks like SO much fun and I wish I could come over and play! It's also kinda quiet playing. Brudder Ranger is a growler when he plays so it's always kinda noisy in our house when we get a good game going.

Oh, and don't fret. I'm sure your house will be filled to the brim agains in no time!

Sort of and ALL or Nothing situation, Right??? I'm sure it will be back to the ALL condition sooner than you can imagine. Sad that it will be needed though.

Controlled chaos. Yep. My favorite spot is when Ziggy head-dives off the couch. Are you sure he's not a gold medalist gymnast?

Great video! What fun!

It's so exciting they all have new homes, though you must be enjoying the quiet. I can't wait to see who comes through your revolving door next.

It's like doggie daycare in your own house. Too much running about for the Mango, but PeeWee would love it.

Slobbers,

P.S. Great to hear that some of your fosters are doing so well.

Woohoo! What an amazing, fantastic, and wonderful week. We are so happy for you, and for all of the woofies who found their forever homes. :)

How can Ziggy not be adopted yet? Just look at that adorable face!

Thank you for all of your great work!
