Things have been hopping around here in the foster dog department. On Tuesday afternoon the people who had surrendered Slinky, Peppa, and Caesar contacted me. The owner was needing to surrender another dog.
The dog was Slinky’s sister, her name was Luna. They wanted to know if I would take her. I said yes. I know I was full of dogs but I also want to help this owner…and I really felt the dog needed a chance. What’s one more…right? You know I always say, the more the merrier!!
So little Luna came to my house. I talked with my afterschool girls and asked them to help me come up with a name. There is nothing wrong with Luna but at the rescue, dogs are kept track of by their names and we’ve had lots of Lunas. So we wanted something similar and decided to go with Lulu. It fits her.
As you can see, she looks a lot like Slinky. She is darker in the face and is much smaller.
She had not been outside and was only puppy pad trained. She is six months old. This gal’s life has been a whirlwind since she arrived on Tuesday afternoon.
She had new digs…went to the vet for the first time…was spayed and met kids all on her first two days here.
She’s doing really well.
It was a big-time puppy day at my house on Wednesday with Kelli’s kids here. It was so nice. Over the last month, I’ve had dogs that weren’t very kid friendly. In fact, Carver and the after-school girls asked me the other day when can we get puppies so we can play with them.
Eli, my grandson had a chance to play with them Blonde and Dagwood. They all loved each other.
I didn’t get much done this week besides care for grandkids and pups.
What a whirlwind of a week-
Monday: Blondie and Dagwood to the vet for spay and neuter…and pick them back up.
Tuesday: Lulu arrived.
Wednesday: Lula to the vet for a spay and neuter and Dagwood went to his home
Thursday: Did background checks on applications
Friday: To the vet for a health certificate for Caesar and Blondie went to her home
Saturday: Lulu and Caesar are both scheduled to go to their homes.
None of this would be possible without the help of Fredericksburg Vet. They have been amazing this week. They have gotten us in at the last minute. They have squeezed us in for spaying and neutering our dogs within a couple of days of us getting them. It is so awesome for us. It helps us keep dogs moving. It’s really best for the dogs and for us if we can turn the dogs around in two weeks or so. That way fosters don’t get burned out…the dogs don’t get accustomed to our homes making the transition to their new homes a little easier for the pups. I have worked with everyone at the clinic and love them all!! Friday I baked cookies and brought them some as a little thank you.
It was a whirlwind of a week…but totally worth it.
