Jed & A very Merry Christmas!

Update: Jed just left for his new Forever Home. Read below.
So much has happened that we don't even know where to start. On Saturday we had to pick up Jed and take him over to Golden to meet with a possible new home. Who is Jed, you ask?

Jed is the foster 16 month old boy that our cousins are fostering over the holidays. You see Jed was staying with a nice foster family, but they had to travel over the holidays. In addition, there was some tension between one of the permanent members of the foster family and Jed. So Jed moved in with our cousins, Emma, Molly and Piper. He brought a new level of energy to their house, we did not know that Molly could wear out from running and playing, but Jed managed to wear her out.
When a meeting with a possible forever home was set up for Saturday, our family made the trip to take Jed over. The problem is that Jedd did not like his days at the rescue kennels. When they drove up to the kennels, Jedd became very upset. When Jedd met his new possible Forever Brother, he growled at him. Jed did not want any part of the kennels or anyone there. So Jed came back. Jed decided to just stay at our house.

So now we are four. Bella and I as permanent residents, Black Jack our honorary Golden foster brother, and Jed, our temporary foster. We had a wonderful time last evening. We ran and romped in the snow, we had a good dinner, then we all slept together on the floor of the bedroom.

Early this morning, Sunday, we had a call from GRRR, they have another meeting for Jed. This time the meeting is here since the adopter's live close, and Jedd does not like meeting at the rescue kennels. The Forever Home has a 4 year old boy, Hurley, that he has to get along with. There is a 14 year old boy to take them for runs, and a big back yard to play in.

Here is hoping that Jed gets his Forever Home today. He is a very deserving boy, he has had a rough life till now, and he needs a home where he can feel secure. He came to the rescue after he was a Christmas present last year. The problem with puppies as Christmas presents is that they take a lot of time and work. His family did not have the time, money or ability to handle a very active young Golden Retriever. He shows some signs of having been miss-handled, he has some hand fear and he jumps at any loud or new noise. He badly needs a permanent and loving home so that he can learn to trust people.

Then we had some more excitement. We received a gift in the mail. It was a day-timer for the Larimer County Humane Society. Abby and Sandy were the back cover photos and were in several other photos. Abby and Sandy were foster sisters this summer until they found a wonderful new Forever Home. Their new humans are so pleased with how wonderful Abby and Sandy are that they volunteer at the local shelter helping other homeless dogs. The present of their day timer is very special. Abby and Sandy have the life, they are in photos showing them sleeping on the human bed with the cat, curled up and snuggled up with a comforter. Boy did they get a wonderful home. Thanks for making their life so wonderful!

Thanks for the Merry Christmas.
