Okay, I know the blogiverse has been buzzing with some new family members as of late...
Welcome to the Elgin Pugs "Foster" TriXie and MinnaK's So Far Nameless sister! I ALMOST got to join in on the fun. But.. carrying on the theme for the summer.. our family did not grow as planned. BUT! It's good news! Let me explain...
You may remember waaayyyy back last summer when mom's co-worker got a brand new labra-dudette puppy... and she was very much shy like me. Mom gave them lots of
Flash forward to one week ago... due to some unfortunate circumstances, they could no longer keep Seana. Upon hearing that something dire might happen, mom told papa about it and.. gearing up for the ardous task of convincing him that we would once again be a four dog household.... my papa said, "Why don't you tell them we'll take her in?" So much for planning a big speech! This shouldn't surprise mom because my papa is the best papa I could ever ask for and mom says this is one of the many reasons she loves him!
SO... they began to convince this family to let Seana come be a part of our spoiled pack. Her two-leggers at the time were hesitant for mom and papa to adopt her at first because, I left this part out earlier, she needs surgery. Yep. She tore her CCL when playing with another dog and needs expensive surgery AND then she'll have an extensive recovery process. Mom and papa didn't care about that. They said they would figure out the financial part and the additional family member situation as they went along. They knew what they were getting into... so, happily, the orginal plan was off and, as of Friday afternoon, she was going to come meet us on Sunday. I was very excited!! Our vet, my friend Dr. DeAnna, was going to come see her and mom even had a costume for her so she could be in our annual Halloween picture.
Then.... Saturday morning they called to say they realized the adoption contract from her rescue stated they could not rehome her but she had to be returned to the rescue, which worked out wonderfully for Seana. I guess being sisters wasn't in the plan for us. I think our purpose in her life was simply to buy some time to guide her back to her foster mom. Either way, it worked out for the best because she is on the right path!
Which leads me to a request for the Power of the Paw.
We know how well it works so if you wouldn't mind adding her to your Paws for Prayer lists, she will need it during her long recovery! And if by chance you have any green papers earmarked for good causes, there's a ChipIn fundraiser on the Dog World Rescue page (and below) to help raise the money for her surgery. Every dollar will help!
