As promised, I have lots of news to share, so I’ll just jump right in!
Saturday was the Kia Dog Wash event, and there was a great turn out! Thankfully it warmed up a LOT, and it was a beautiful day! There were a ton of Kia employees that volunteered their time to wash dogs, as well as BBQ food for everyone. And, this brings me to the first bit of news…..
We are officially back in the foster business! 3 new puppies, rescued by a good Samaritan, came to Last Hope on Saturday. The puppies and their fosters all met at the Kia dog wash event. The lady who brought them to us was SO generous! She took wonderful care of the pups before bringing them to the rescue, and included a big gift bag full of puppy goodies for each dog!
Wickett is the one that came home with me. We think maybe they are daschund and lab mixes?! Who really knows! Wickett is doing great with my two dogs! He is on his way to being fully potty & crate trained. He loves toys, and is happy all the time! He also LOVES to chase Lucy around. He constantly chases her off the deck…which is impressive, considering his tiny size! Oscar is more gentle with Wickett, usually laying down, letting Wickett crawl all over him.
I am pretty certain he will be adopted quickly, as most puppies are! I will keep you updated on all things Wickett related! 🙂
Moving on…Sunday, Oscar & I attended a pack walk with Tallahassee Walkabulls.
I was all excited to bring him, just knowing that he would be the best behaved, most perfect pittie there…boy was I wrong! He went a little crazy, barking and pulling. He even tried to eat Maggie’s face off. (Ok, maybe that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but still!) Once we started walking though, he relaxed a bit. Surprisingly, he also made it through the whole walk, which is an accomplishment for him!
Also, there was a very large group for this pack walk, and guess who was there?!?!?
(& favorite) foster, Lola, and her family! Of course, she WAS the well behaved perfect pittie that she is, as was her sister! Thanks to my friend Morgan (who I stole all of these pictures from), she took Oscar so that I could have a proper smooch fest with Lola! She was happy as always, giving me a big pittie grin and lots of slobbery kisses. It is always so nice to see her!!
Oscar & I will definitely be attending again, since I learned that he seems to be a bit leash reactive. I have also suggested Chelsea & her family come too, because it would be a great setting for her! So hopefully I’ll see them & will get to post a picture of her soon!
That’s all of the news for today. I hope you are all having a lovely week so far! Here are some adorably cute pictures of Wickett….
PS-All of the really nice looking pictures are from my good friend Morgan (& Maggie’s foster mama!). If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out her blog, Temporary Home, Permanent Love! 🙂
