Vinny was Adopted!

A great family was interested in Fawn the Italian Greyhound, but when they saw how shy she is, they realized they wouldn’t be a good fit for her. So I was excited when they decided to adopt Vinny instead. Vinny is younger, and although he’s also shy, he’s much more social than Fawn. Vinny is doing well in his new home so far, and he is going to be very loved and spoiled! 

In addition to Vinny, two other All Paws dogs were adopted this weekend. A couple people have wondered why Thor was returned.  It was not his fault, but he was adopted into a home with another dog, and that dog was young and playful.  He'd often torment Thor by bumping into him, trying to get him to play.  Thor has some arthritis in his rear legs, and he wasn't interested in playing, or in having a rambunctious dog bounce off him all the time.  So the people who adopted him opted to return him so he could go to a calmer home.  Eventually.  For now he's stuck being surrounded by rambunctious dogs, but at least they tend to play with each other and leave him alone for the most part!

I recently took this picture of my backyard.  I thought Bogey did a pretty good job of hiding in plain sight!

I also recently took this blurry picture of Jupiter trying to outrun Mayzie.  This was taken before he started treatment for heartworms, when he was still allowed to run and play!

And last but not least, this picture is also of Jupiter looking Most Handsome at an adoption event.  Have I mentioned that I LOVE this dog??

Gasp! Jupiter has cow spots on his head! They are all great looking dogs and hopefully will get their forever homes soon! Sorry to hear about Thor - but surely a calmer home is just around the corner!
