Abby has a Forever Home

This is a hard blog to write but it had to come sometime.   Abby has a brand new, forever home.   Abby has been with us since March 9th, she settled in and had become a member of the family.   We really did not try to hard to adopt her out, just in case you were wondering.  In fact, we kind of steered people to other dogs, explaining to people that "Abby is not quite the right dog for you".   She was just to great to hurry along.  No matter how much we loved having her here, she deserved a forever home of her own.  She probably set the record for having been in a foster home the longest. 

Abby went to a new home where she will have a 10 year old golden friend, Romeo, to play with.   There are lots of tall old trees, not as many squirrels as she had at our home, but still a very nice place for her.   She will have two people that will dote on her and she will be the queen of the house.  We wish Abby the best, and we know that the transition will be hard for her, we all had grown too attached.   Abby, we wish you the best of luck and have a long and happy life.

While the chauffeur was out, he picked up two new fosters, Honey and Butterscotch.  Honey and Butterscotch are 2 and 3 years of age, a male and female that have been together and will be placed as a pair.   They are well mannered, very well trained and good looking.   We will tell you more later, that is all we know about them at the moment.   They will be very photogenic when morning comes.   We are not too sure where they came by those names though. 

But wait, there is more news.   We have someone interested in adopting Nala.   The person was visiting at our cousins house (actually our humans son-in-law and daughters house where Emma, Molly and Piper live), and sat on the couch.    Sitting on a couch near Nala is dangerous unless you like 60 pound lap dogs.   Nala climbed up on the couch and proceeded to work her magic on them.   There are some hurdles to cross, but they are certainly interested.   Nala has to finish her medications first, then she can look for a new forever home.   She has to meet their dog and show that she is going to get along well.  The people have to fill out an application form and show Nala that they will provide her with all the care and attention that she has been missing out on for all these years.  It is certainly exciting that someone is interested in her so quickly.  

That's all for tonight.

  4. Yea for you Abby Girl - but let me tell you those Romeo Goldens can be trouble....As a GRRR rescue (foster failure) a couple of years ago, I came to live with this youngster who is also a Romeo. He is always bouncing around wanting me to play bitey face and play tug of war with MY toys!

  5. Congratulations, Abby! We wish you the best of luck and lots of hugs! We will keep our paws crossed for Nala!


  6. Congratulations Abby (my Apples told you your time and people would come) and how difficult for you Mogley. Wishing you a GReat life in your new home and happy squirrel hunting.

    Butterscotch & Honey - we can't wait to see your pictures. I'm sure you'll be having some fun with Mogley and the gang & your forever home will soon be coming!

  7. Such good news. It has to be hard to get attached and then say good-bye. But you help so many it must give you comfort.

  8. Abby says (as dictated to Paul 'cause she can't type very well): "Today was a good day, although I miss my foster dad. My new humans cheered me up with a walk in Park Hill this morning. Didn't see any squirrels, but I did bark at a snooty Bijon Frise. Napped mid-day, then went to Washington Park for another walk. After that, I went to the South Pearl shopping district and sampled the strawberry-lemonade sorbet at the Pajama Baking Company. Oh, and I also went shopping at a high-end Cat and Dog boutique and my new human bought me a a cow cheek chew bone. PS. Romeo is very handsome."

  9. Hooray for Abby! I know you will miss your girl, but after reading the blog comment from her humans it sounds like her people will do everything to make her happy :)
