A Pit Bull Adoption!

Now before you get too worried, I will tell you that it's not Ziggy who was adopted.  In spite of having his own web page and being a featured pet on several websites and Facebook pages including the Shelter Pet Project, he hasn't had any inquiries for adoption.  But he's not complaining.  In fact, he's still being fostered by the best dog trainer I know, and he's attended more parties and events in the past few weeks than I have in the past few years.  Ziggy is a busy guy, and he's doing great. We're attending agility classes on Sundays, so last Sunday I asked him to come back home with me but he said no thanks.  I told him his fans missed him, and he said he'd come back soon, but not quite yet.  Apparently Lynsey, his trainer, is more fun than me.  But that's okay, because I have decided to take him back home on Sunday whether he likes it or not. At least for a little while.  Because as much as I don't want to admit it, I really do miss him. And I think my blog is starting to get boring without him!

The pit bull who was adopted is Phil, my temporary foster dog who is almost as much fun as Ziggy.  He loves to carry around toys in his mouth, and does his best to fit in as many as possible.  He drinks by sticking his entire snout into a bowl of water, and only coming out when he needs to breathe.  He was Roxy's best friend and playmate.  Phil was found in a dumpster, skinny and sad and unwanted.  He's come a long way from those beginnings, and now he's off on his newest adventure with a family of his own.

Yay Phil! Way to score a new home! Can't believe no one has expressed an interest in Ziggy! I wonder if there is a record for how long a dog has ever been fostered and maybe he is trying to break it?

Congratulationg Phil and tons of luck to you with your new family and your brand new home. Have a terrific life!

I find it hard to believe that no one stepped up to the plate to adopt Ziggy. Don’t they see what a terrific guy he is? If not for my 2 Shih Tzu boy who lord over my household, I’d take Ziggy in myself. However, I’m glad he’s having such a terrific time so maybe formal adoption is really not necessary.
