First! Go Check out my friends over at Two Pitties in the City! If you don't already know them, you should!!! They're a great blog about the very beautiful Miss. M and the studly Mr. B and their adventures around Chicago. I'm featured over there today for their How to be a Tourist with Your Dog series! Click here to see my post! Don't be conufesed though... I did let my mom write it.
Now, make sure to leave a comment over there, because the post with the most comments will get $100 donated to their rescue and a collar from Sirius Republic! I think it would be awesome to have another Adopt Me collar for the rescue -you'll find out why in the second part of this post!
Second! Mom ordered a new collar from Sirius Republic for our foster dogs. Dad always complained when we had Oreo because she had an ugly red collar and he always said that people would think she was a boy. So when mom saw that Sirius Republic did embroidery (and she does the "Adopt Me" embroidery for free!), she just couldn't resist! So Mia was our first foster dog that wore our new collar.
Now, Mia was concidered a difficult adoption. She had previously been in two homes and had been returned. The first one wasn't really anyones fault... they had young children and after about a week or so, Mia wasn't too thrilled about their energy and craziness. The second home was with some push over dude, so Mia took over and protected the house, since she didn't think he would. When she came back to the rescue, she was very timid when new people would come to the house. It took her a few days to get used to my dad. But we knew that Mia just needed he right home because she really IS a wonderful dog! We worked with her while she was at our home. Mom had someone come to the house every few days so we should show Mia that it's okay when people come over... and that she can relax and get pet - which is her favorite thing EVER!
|Really, out of all of those dogs... they had to pick the goofy one?|
I couldn't be happier for Mia. Her new parents were told all of Mia's issues and we made arrangements to have our behaviorist go to their home to work with them and Mia before they could take Mia home. The behaviorist visit went wonderful and Mia is happily living the life! She has a nice big back yard for lots of playing and awesome parents to scratch her belly when she rolls over and looks like a dead frog!
|She loves playing in the yard!|
|I'll miss you, but I know you'll love your new family!|
And they said you can stay at my house if they ever go out of town!
Third! Thank you for EVERYONE who donated to Max! Mom has had a few issues with the chipin site, but she's trying to figure them out and should have everything squared away soon. Don't worry, we DID get your donations! We just have to stop it from sending emails to people saying that we didn't... and get it to show up on the meter! We've raised over $100 so far, and will be promoting it more once mom figures the stupid thing out! Also, Max is doing SO MUCH BETTER!!! I just know all of your thoughts and prayers have been helping him, so keep them coming!
FOURTH! Did you go see Two Pitties yet????? Don't forget!!!!!!!!!!!!
