Congratulations to all of the dogs that got new homes at the picnic! We had several adopters picking up dogs that day! It was a banner day for ATDR fosters – Cowboy, Cami, Timone, Bentley and Rocco! Needless to say a busy afternoon! Ducky went out on a trial but will be returning to me this weekend!
Mommy got so excited about Timone and Bentley getting adopted together by Tim and Pam, the couple whose home visit she did 10 days ago. Guess what, they have even fostered for ATDR already!!
Remember Pretzel? Daschsis never forget their fosters. Aunt Judy got this e-mail and these pictures from him yesterday.
Aunt Judy – guess what??!!!! I had a big ad-VENTURE last week!!! Oh, Aunt Judy, was it FUN!!
Here’s what happened:
Mommy’s brother came to visit her mommy for mommy’s day, and they all comed to our house for dinner. Mommy and her brother grilled out on the patio, and dogs helped. When it get dark out, mommy’s brother say he leave now. Mommy opened front door, let brother out, and mommy’s neighbor standing there with a cute little dog in him arms. He say to mommy, “Is this your dachshund?” Guess what, Aunt Judy? That cute little dachshund was Pretzel!!! I runned away for an a-VENTURE while dogs an mommy cook dinner and eat! I wandered around, smelled the smells, pee’ed on things, and went on mommy’s neighbor’s back patio. Dat neighbor, Scott, him say to mommy that him opened the back door, and I was sitting there like, “OK – you can feed me now”!!!!! oh, it was so much fun! No harness, no leash – just freedom, Aunt Judy. And know what da best part was? Mommy not even know I was goned! She say she go out in garage to get something, and she see Tucker and Rory out dere, and she say, “come in dogs!” but she not know Pretchels was out dere too!! Hahahahaha – I so sneaky! Mommy say she smart now, and not let dat happen again.
Dis was me at da vet’s yesterday wif brother and sister:
Aren’t I just the most handsomest boy you’ve ever seen, Aunt Judy?! And sneaky, too!
PS – we have a new foster brother, Rusty. Him a blind boy. Him sweet.
