Foster Stella!

I don't know if I should be angry or happy.    The chauffeur came home with a new foster named Stella.   He then told me that Stella is just like me.    You can see the photos, I don't look anything like Stella.  Then he explained that Stella takes the same heart medication I do and she is three years old, just like me.   In the above photo she is getting a first look at her new home, her tail is still down, but it will be up as soon as she has time to learn her way around. 

Stella has a very sad story.   A divorce forced her to move out of a small apartment in order to leave more room for her mom and two young children (5 & 8), several cats and Guinea pigs.   She used to sleep on the bed with her family, now she will have to sleep on the bed she brought with her, but on the floor beside the bed.   She came with all of her earthly belongings, a very nice bed, a tennis ball and a small bag of food. 
She says she will adjust, after all, a lady has to move on.   She is busy exploring our back yard and the house.  She has checked out the dog door, but she needs more practice with it.   She has already passed the cat test, ignoring them as she sniffed out the corners of her new home.  

She explored the back yard, but is not comfortable in the big outdoors yet.    Stella has not lived with other dogs before, so she will be learning how to play with us and how to share toys and games.    She has not met many people, she is not comfortable with strangers.  She needs socialising with other dogs to learn how to be a dog, and she needs to meet people to learn to trust again.  She will be settling in for the next several days, getting acquainted with a new life style.  Stella will make a visit to the vet on Friday to get a check up by our Golden Retriever specialist.  Stella has a small tumor on her chest that will need to be looked at.  Stella will be writing her posting for the posting.   She says her requirements for a new home will be very particular.   She wants to find a special home, a Forever Home, one that she can be happy in for many years. 

Help us welcome Stella to our home and we want everyone to start looking for a perfect Forever Home for a very special and deserving lady.
Above is one last photo of Butter.   Butter moved on to a new Forever Home on Saturday.   This photo shows that she was truly a double threat, not only could she fetch tennis balls with the best of them, she could also fetch Frisbee's.   Enjoy your wonderful new Forever Home, Butter!
