Hello friends! I thought this would be a good time to update you on some things!
First update…I recently got an email from Shiloh’s mom! It was short & sweet about their first trip to the beach. She said Shiloh had an absolute blast! Updates like this will never get old!
Next update…Petey is back. As previously mentioned here, he was having some issues since being adopted by my brother, and it was determined that he wasn’t the right home for Petey. They arrived on Sunday, and we went straight to a local park so that Oscar could meet Petey while getting his energy out. I’ve learned what Oscar needs when being introduced to new dogs, and the initial meeting went great! We took a walk in the blistering sticky humid heat, and tired the dogs out. Oscar has made Petey his new BFF…I’m not sure sure Petey agrees, but they’ve all been great together!
On to some exciting news! I am officially a Last Hope Rescue board member! This basically means that I have to attend their meetings, vote on things, help with ideas on how to promote our dogs and get fosters, etc. I consider it an honor, and I am happy to help in anyway!!
Next up! Hambone has been adopted!! (Well, technically he won’t be adopted until this weekend when I go do his adoption, but it’s basically a done deal!) His new foster mom completely fell in love with him and just couldn’t say goodbye. This is truly the perfect home for Hammy, as he gets to have 4 doggie siblings and he’ll go to work with his mama every day! Hambone’s brother, Sal, has his own FB page where you can see a fab video of them playing! Check it out here!
Two final things about my Oscar! I told you guys about a contest that Oscar is in. If he is one of the winners, he will get to be in a calendar! So, please take a second to “like” his picture HERE.
and the last thing about him…starting in September, we will be doing obedience classes! I am really excited about this because the trainer comes highly recommended. Plus, dogs adopted through Last Hope get an awesome discount, which is always good! I’ve been practicing basic skills with Oscar for awhile now, and he’s great at “focus”, “sit”, “down”….but there is so much more to perfect. He will also get to test for the Canine Good Citizen test at the end of training, which was a goal of mine when I adopted him!
Ok, that’s all for tonight! Kinda boring, I know, but things that I felt I should update you on! Thanks for reading!
