    Default How exciting!

    Got an email today from one of the foster carers I emailed a while back saying that they have a JRT x chihuahua puppy that will be up for adoption in a few weeks time (just in time for my hols) and would I be interested in meeting her!

    She is currently in a foster home with kittens and other small dogs. She won't be available for a few weeks because she has a bit of a cold, but she may be my new pup!

    Aww! If you're keen you may be able to convince them to let you adopt her earlier if you make it clear that you will make sure she gets the appropriate vet care. I recently nursed a foster kitten with cat flu back to health and it was kind of special to get her through that and to go from having to really baby her to seeing her blossom when she got her energy back. I still call her my baby, lol.

    Look forward to hearing how the meeting goes!

    Actually suits us fine if she stays with them a few weeks - we have some holidays coming up at the end of the month which we took deliberately to ease the transition of the new pup, so it fits with our plan perfectly. As much as I'd love to take her straight away, I agreed with hubbie to keep my feet on the ground and wait patiently!

    The time off will give us time to socialise her and introduce her to the cats and also to ease her into spending some time alone too, so I think it will work out for the best.

    Win-win! Hope the pup gets over her sniffles soon.

    When will you go meet her?

    The foster carer is a good two hour drive from us, so I think what is gonna happen is, when pup is ready to be rehomed, the foster carer will come to us, check us out and if everyone is happy, pup will stay with us for a two week trial period. If all goes well and the cats settle (or at least don't beat her up too much!) we will have our new dog.
