On Wednesday we drove from about 11:30am until about 9pm at night; delivering Capone and Katie to their new homes 2 hours north of us; and then picking up 2 more fosters. And also picked up some kind of flu.. :foxes15: Luckily Robbie has been taking care of everything while I'm feverish and drugged on DayQuil. It's also given me plenty of time to bond with the new two. "Tulip" is the brindle and white girl. She's 2 years old; was heartworm positive so the last foster mommy had her a while during her treatment. She's "Adoption Pending," we plan to make another trip out next Wednesday to deliver her. She's very friendly, playful; and not a mean bone in her little body. She acted like she'd been here forever when we got here! She does have a little underbite that gives her a lot of character. And she LOVES squeaky toys.








And then there's... this guy. A 2 year old.. clone of Dexter, eh pigeon? LOL We're calling him Frankie. He's a special case, as he's very fear-aggressive; and can't even be handled for the first few days. If someone actually gives him the time to warm up on his own terms he will bloom; we've just had him a couple days and today we had our "breakthrough" where he keeps curling up on my lap and allowing me to pet him. Otherwise he just hides or keeps to himself in the doggie room. I think seeing the other dogs is helping him to come out of his shell too as he does follow them around. He just has the saddest eyes and is so timid. Ever since "bonding" with me he's been a total lover though; I know he'll be good company if he's ever able to just settle in. I just love his coat. The first thing I give every dog is their own collar; and I had the perfect one for him.









The gal who I've been placing dogs for is moving so I'm just adopting out the last ones she's got now; so I don't know if I'll have many more in the near future until she gets settled in again. I'll miss it but it's not like I don't have 6 of my own to spoil lol.

Thanks! I love getting to know them. I almost think its harder, for me at least, to adopt out the ones who are more shy or fearful; just because I know that the friendly ones will adjust no problem. But it's such a reward to have a dog who's so scared actually trust you; it's like a privilege to me lol. Lil Frankie's been following me around all day and even taking treats now from our company.

Sad they are homeless, but glad you are caring for them.
Hope they find loving forever homes. They are both beautiful!

You are so right about Frankie. First I immediately thought of Dexter before I read what you wrote. Then, his sad eyes are so heartbreaking like he's had such a hard little life so far. I don't know that he has, but that's just the look he gives off. Hope they both get great homes, but I guess I just have a special little longing for Frankie to have what it seems he's missing.

I own a little rescue chi mix and when we
first had her she was quite she and timid.
But now she's like a different dog. Just needed
a lot of love and socialisation. It's amazing how
resilient and willing to trust again they can
become. Thank goodness for people like you
giving these little ones a second chance!
