Duchy was adopted on Saturday! She was such an easy dog to foster, because she had perfect manners and was very calm. I really miss her, but I'm happy that she has a good home!
Roxy went to adoptions on Saturday and Sunday, and she did very well. If I ever get her to pay attention to anyone other than me at events, I think she'll get adopted rather quickly. In the meantime, we started our first CGC class today, and we were total failures. I was so used to Ziggy who was already well trained in obedience, that I didn't know what to do with a dog who has no concept of down/stay/heel/etc. It didn't help that we'd just left an adoption event and she was already tired out. We'll practice a lot this week and hopefully next week's class will go better.
And then there's Tulsa, the deaf Australian Cattle Dog. Tulsa doesn't do well at adoption events - she barks at every dog she sees. So she stayed home on Saturday, and only went to Sunday's adoption event which was a shorter event. I covered her crate up and it was a rather slow day so it went pretty well, meaning she didn't drive everyone crazy with nonstop barking!
Bunny, the Bichon from the puppy mill, also went to Sunday's adoption event. She got a haircut while we were there, so she looks a little less fluffy now than she did in this picture.
Ziggy, the deaf pit bull, has been staying at another foster home for the past week. I have to admit I have missed him, just a little bit. He went to stay with a dog trainer, and she said he was a perfect angel almost all week. So he's staying another week so she can get to know what he's really like (hint: not an angel). So I got to see him at the training seminar and at agility class and then send him back with the trainer afterwards.
Since the trainer took Ziggy home, I took her foster dog Phil to my house. He is doing great here. He loves to play with Roxy, and he gets along really well with all of the dogs. He constantly has to have something in his mouth, and will carry around a ball or chew toy for hours. He went to Saturday and Sunday's adoption events and received a lot of attention just for being so cute!
