Lost Dog on My Doorstep: Part 7 – Premature Celebration

This post is a continuation of the Lost Dog on My Doorstep series.  Previous posts can be found HERE.

In Part Woohoo (Part 6), Gracie had been adopted.  I was elated, but to be honest, I was apprehensive about the adopters.  The rescue that is representing Gracie for us approved them, and from what I heard, they were good people with a home and yard suitable for an active dog.

Pondering what mischief I can get into…

Super Saturday: 2 Paws Up for Winning!

Sometimes the very best part of blogging is getting to know other pet bloggers, especially when they have giveaways ;).  Recently, we had a bit of doggy luck and won a few items that give us happy paws.

First up, we won our very own pawtographed copy of
Tales of a French Scent Hound by Emma the GBGV.

In Part Yay (Part 5), Gracie had finally been able to leave boarding and go to her foster home.  She was doing great in the foster home, and from what I understand, foster mom was falling in love.  Her friends even joked on Facebook, “What are you going to do if/when someone wants to adopt her?”  They knew Gracie was stealing foster mom’s heart.

In Part 4, Gracie was finally getting to leave boarding and go home with her foster parents.  Her foster mom was going to be picking her up Monday afternoon, and needless to say, I was anxious to get an update about how things went on her first night at her foster home.

Why be anxious?  Well, on Monday morning I got the news that Gracie had torn up the isolation room at the vet.  Like really torn it up, lol.  Okay, I shouldn’t lol.  It’s not funny.  There was no word on whether we would be receiving a bill for the damages.

Well, poor girl… after 20 days in boarding, she was going NUTS.  I would’ve been too.  This was vet boarding, not fun doggy daycare/dog hotel kind of boarding.

Lost Dog on My Doorstep: Part 4

This post is a continuation of the Lost Dog on My Doorstep series.  To view previous posts in this series, please see this page.

Part 3½ of the story ended with Gracie in a holding pattern.  The foster parents were ready to take her, but her fecal test results came back positive for several contagious parasites.  Because the foster parents have other dogs, she would need to be medicated to get rid of the parasites and have a clear retest before going to their home.  This meant staying in boarding a bit longer than we intended.

Gracie - What??

“What?? Did you say I’m going to have to stay in boarding even LONGER now??”
