Pupdates - Lady goes home

Yahoo!! Our foster dog was adopted this weekend; she went to her new home on Sunday. We always hold our breath for the first few days - just in case - but again it was not necessary. Lady's new owners love her dearly. They are looking forward to taking her on camping trips and hiking with her. We are pleased to have found the right home - especially considering her mannerisms when she first arrived. They have even called twice with updates already!

While she was a lot of fun, she was a lot of work too. Our dogs slept for the entire first day she was gone. I actually wondered if they were ok at one point ... our dogs don't normally sleep that much! (Especially the ACD!)

It's been nice to be able to actually play with my own dogs without her interference. She is one of those dogs that jumps in whenever anyone does anything so I was constantly having to put my dogs on hold to deal with her. I often would be found putting her away in another room just so I could interact with my guys.

I realized yesterday that I hadn't actually played tug with any of the dogs since Lady came. So sad because that is a favourite for all of them. I have played tug so much in the last few days that I think my arms are going to fall off soon!

Yipeeee! Thanks for your pateince and dedication to helping Lady find her happily ever after!

I can totally relate to feeling negelctful of your dogs. I'm going through the same thing right now. Stumpy is getting a little porkly in my attempt to make up for any neglect she might me feeling. Thankfully, she is very forgiving, as long as I have a treat for her.

That is quite touching to hear you have found new owners for your beloved dog. I feel heavy in my heart whenever we give our dogs, specially the puppies. But in God's hands, they have a good home in their new owners.

Completely on the same page. I have two Coonhounds, an English and a TW, who both need special attn and then need to be kenneled when I am not home to run interference. I love them both but yes, they do take a lot of energy and time from those less needy. Good for Lady!
