Special Christmas Gift

Glen and I, after much deliberation, decided to give Taffy the ultimate Christmas gift.  We gave Taffy the gift of adoption.  So naturally I had to dress her up for the occasion.

Tippy wanted in on the dress up action too.

Warm Sunny Day

The weather has been so wonderful lately that we have really been enjoying our outside time.

Nightly Event

Every night James and Taffy play….and they play really rough.  Thankfully the display of teeth is all in fun and no one gets hurt.

She’s really a gazelle

Our foster dog, Taffy, learned a new trick.  She is able to jump/climb over our chain link fence.

Does this look like the face of a dog that would do such a thing?   She jumped the fence as I watched her bound through our neighbors pasture like a freaking gazelle.

Here she is looking pensive.  Thoughts of running through lush grasses and wading through murky, stinky ponds.

Taffy

It has been decided that our newest foster dog’s name will be Taffy.  As you can see she is a beautiful girl.

No Name Yet

Saturday we went and picked up our newest foster.  She was found abandoned with her seven puppies.  Her pups are old enough that they went to separate foster homes.  As of yet, we are still trying to come up with a good name for her.

Another Success

Last night our foster dog, Lola, was adopted!

I think she really hit the jackpot with this family.  Don’t you just love happy endings?

Daydreaming About Her Forever Home

Saturday Lola and I attended an adoption event in Belton, Mo at the Petsmart.  She always gets very nervous at these events and after about an hour turns her back on everyone in an attempt to hide. However, on this fine day, there was a nice young couple that came in anticipating a meet and greet with another foster dog.  Well, as it turned out, the other foster dog was not able to attend.  Lola summoned up her courage and showed them what a great dog she is.  Hopefully we will hear from them sometime this week.

She is such a pretty girl, can’t believe she hasn’t been snatched up yet.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
