AND THEN THERE WERE TWO
15 November 2009
Well, three, if you count Dexter.
Yes, Eliza got adopted today. I'm thrilled.
When I went up to Petco to pick the puppies up, I was very disheartened to see that all four were still in the pen. I had hoped to see SOMEONE finally being adopted. I also couldn't understand why Freddie, whose portrait on Petfinder, is the cutest of the three...
...hadn't had any inquiries at all.
I went off to do some shopping (really, just an excuse to listen to my audio book, which is only 3 hours from being finished!) and then came home to pick up the puppies. As I said, they were all still in the cage.
I sighed and got Higgins by the leash and started to leave when Ashley stopped me and asked me to wait a bit. She said a couple was trying to decide between Higgins and Eliza. So I sat there for about half an hour, having some of Ashley's birthday cake, and finally the decision had been made: Eliza.
I went to say goodbye to Eliza and meet her new family and it was the couple I had met with last week, who expressed an interest in both Eliza and Higgins. Eliza was snuggled comfortably in the woman's lap, looking like she had made the switch already, though I wonder how she's going to feel at bedtime tonight!
So I packed the other three up in the car and brought them home again. One of their siblings also got adopted today, so slowly but surely all twelve puppies are finding homes. Maybe next week we'll be lucky again. I want to be sure to get Higgins adopted before I have to saddle him in order to control him!
I got from Dr. G today. They are entirely too good not to share.
