This little family will be coming to NJ in the next few weeks and I wanted you to meet them now, as their Virginia foster mom has joined our "Collective" and I wanted a place for her to let us know how they are doing.
Meet Shirley, Eddie's Mom
We'll be updating as their transport date gets closer. But Gail can keep us posted until then.
I just got an update from Shirley (now Babs) and Eddie' new mom:
Dear Lynne & Kelly – I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch. I kept telling myself to send off an email, but just never got to it. Guess I’ve just been busy LOVING our new dogs! Babs and Eddie are doing really well. Babs’ hesitation to eat only lasted a day or two. The potty training is also going very well, but there is an occasional mess to clean up and of course if I don’t witness it, I can’t be certain which dog is the culprit. But I can say that Eddie has gotten pretty good at going in our yard. Babs is definitely more finicky about finding just the right spot. She prefers to go when we’re out for a walk. Both dogs really like taking walks. Babs struts her stuff and at a quick pace! Trying to get her to stop pulling on the leash so much. Eddie is a little more relaxed and does pretty well on the leash. We’ve been to the dog park in town and also have quite a few dogs in our neighborhood. Babs and Eddie have been meeting lots of new friends and are pretty well behaved around them. Both got summer haircuts – our neighbor is a mobile groomer! In Bab’s picture she still had a bow in her hair from the groomer, but got rid of it about 3 minutes later. I realized Eddie is a skinny little boy after his haircut!
They are so adorable together and clearly love each other. They get jealous of one another if one is getting hugs and love and poke their nose in to share the affection. They play with each other all day long, wrestling and playing with a toy which eventually gets destroyed. They rest and sleep curled up together. Just beautiful! They are not as good at playing with Bob yet, as I. Babs will chase a ball, but won’t bring it to us although we are working on that and she dominates that game not letting Eddie have a chance at the chase. Still, they have been well behaved in the house despite a little roughhousing, hardly any begging and we are trying hard to keep consistent.
I know the pictures aren’t great, but they get awfully excited and can’t sit still when the camera is out! Hard to get a good picture. You can always zoom in to see them a little better.
Thanks for checking in with us.
Gail, This is why i always hesitate to foster... I was supposed to foster, that is what I told my hubby, but we all know I was going to adopt(!), that baby is still here and will not go anywhere soon!! I know that I will get attached very fast but I can't afford another dog in this house. (We have two + 3 cats!) I just need one or two million so we could afford a little farm and more babies...
I admire so much what you and Lynne and all the foster Moms are doing for those sweet pups. In my opinion you are angels. Love, J. xo
