Saturday update

We have good news and bad news to report.

A very nice couple of humans made an appointment to see Abby and Daisy, seeking someone that needed a forever home.   They came by and decided that since their senior boy was 14 and he was likely to get bowled over by Daisy and Abby that Daisy and Abby would not do.   Then they met Ruby.    Sweet, quiet, shy Ruby. 

Ruby stole their hears and won them over.   She went for a walk with them, her first ever walk on a leash, she was wonderful.   The puppy mill dog has found her forever home.    We are excited because we were not going to let her go to any home unless someone was home all day long to work with her.  She needed to learn that humans were her friends, she needs time on the floor with a human, time sleeping beside a bed, and time just being a friend.    

It is a perfect match, both of the humans work at home, they have time to give a scared baby, time to move slowly with her and help her learn what a wonderful life they can have together.   They have been told that it will be a slow journey to move her out of her fears and into trust.    Time and attention is what is necessary to turn a frightened puppy mill refuge into a loving golden friend.

Ruby is still with us tonight, they will make arrangements to pick her up tomorrow.  Wish Ruby good luck as she starts the rest of her life.

What is the bad news you may ask?   We lose Ruby.  Moving on means leaving us behind.
