2-1-17 HARRY UPDATE: From the Facebook page of the Aberdeen Scottish Terrier Rescue in Washington state, USA:
UPDATE: We have received many applications now for Harry & it will take a little while to go through them. We value everyone’s patience & understanding while the right fit of home is found for Mr Harry as well as continuing the other rescue work & finding our other beloved little loves their forever homes also. Have a great day & thank you.
Whew. He’ll soon be on his way to his forever home! I knew it wouldn’t take long! Now, I want to thank each and every one of you who wished the Dad Peep and I would adopt Harry ourselves. You even offered to help defray our travel costs to go clear across the country to see him.
Words can never express how your generosity and kindness continues to touch our hearts in so many ways. Thank you.
Take a look at this picture:

Now, take a look at one of last week’s posts:
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT there could be TWO black Scotties with a Wheaten gene gone wild? And on the CHEST, too? Identical chests? I about fainted.
We were very worried that Harry wasn’t going to find his forever home. I had a little online chat with the folks at Aberdeen Scottish Terrier Rescue about him. What was the status? Was he rehomed yet? When they told me they hadn’t received a single application to adopt him, I priced one-way train tickets clear across the country to see him for myself. To see if he liked us. And to take him back to Virginia by train instead of plane. All 48 hours of the trip.
Today, I’m happy to report that the applications for Harry are coming in. I hope BY THE BOATLOAD. Seems folks are Wild About Harry.
Because NO Scottie, or any loving creature, who needs a caring home should go without.
Thanks to those who pointed Harry out to me. And I hope whoever adopts that feisty little thing finds a way to visit The Scottie Chronicles to keep us up to date about this precious pooch.
