Thursday Pupdate – Bumps in the road

Have I told you lately how wonderful you are? Y’all are so supportive and helpful. As the Dad Peep and I travel along the rescue road, we’re finding it to be a bit bumpy.

What we thought would be a somewhat easy but lengthy process hasn’t turned out that way. Lengthy: yes. Easy: no. We didn’t think it would be THAT easy, after all, the pups’ lives are at stake.

We don’t know what’ll happen with our interest in the sweet young man in North Carolina. He needs a home. We have a home. But there are bumps in the road.

So, we’re keeping our options open. And this morning, wouldn’t you know I saw a three-month old Wheaten boy in Minnesota? They say they don’t allow adoptions over a 60-mile radius. Seriously? I’ve written to them anyway.

And then….there are a few litters coming up.

What to do. Maybe the timing’s not right.

A little boy needs a home. We have a home. Who knew it would be so difficult? Are all rescues this way?

Speaking of puppies, here’s a pic. Sorry for the blur, but you get the gist! That Stu. What a gem he was. Wish I had a puppy picture of little BoBo. Another gem.

Baby Stuart

Thanks, pals. For keeping us in your thoughts.

    You’d think it would be easier. Scottie Kingdom in Dallas had a policy of not releasing a dog outside of Texas and then (as I recall) they’d do it to Texas and states that border Texas. They want to make certain that the dog is going to a good place. Why isn’t there an organization that would check out and certify prospective adopters? Maybe there is but this bird brain doesn’t know about it. Doesn’t Virginia border Texas? If not, it should.

    When I was adopted, my Peeps directed the Rescue Organization (Love Bug Rescue in Southern California) to Kyla’s Blog. They also emailed pictures of our home and yard. Seemed to do the trick, bc HERE I AM – SO GRATEFUL!!!!!

  4. I know some really good peeps have had a tuff time wif westie rescues too. Hang in there.

    We had the same experience in our effort some years ago and it is a bit hard to understand. We ended up with a puppy instead. Fingers crossed that reason wins out!!

  6. Bella, Roxy and Dui says:

    When we were looking at Roxy, we referred them to our Blog, and that clinched the deal. They definitely wanted her in our pack.

    Hang in there girl. The new fur face in your life is out there somewhere looking for you. And when it’s right it will be easy 🙂

    We volunteer for the French Bulldog Rescue Network. They don’t ship a pup either but you can make a road trip and go get him. Mom drove 9 hours one way to rescue me

    Send them copies of your blog. It will show how much you love the breed and what great parents you were for Stuart. It might help.

    I love that picture of Stuey-Boo! It makes my heart warm. Such a special little guy. I hope the rescue boy works out! Sniglet is anxiously awaiting a new friend. I think a Scottie would be just the thing to help her recover from her recent health problems! Scotties make everything better!

    We know your frustration. Andy was already spoken for when we found him at a fundraiser for the humane society. We had to wait until his new “owners” decided they didn’t want him before we could welcome him home. Let those know there is an ARMY of supporters ready to vouch for you n dad peep. Don’t be messin’ with us! Semper fortis! De opresso liber! (Always faithful,; to librate the oppressed).

    Your blog speaks volumes about the kind of peeps that you are. Hang in there because the right little fur ball will come along. Bailey and I will keep our paws/fingers crossed.
