All the puppies have been adopted!
I was so afraid I wouldn't find homes for them all. Huge, huge sigh of relief.
They all have such sweet, gentle dispositions it was an easy task. Each and every person that met them...immediately wanted them. I am amazed that all eight are so mellow in personality (canineality?), they are lovely animals, and I am sure they will grow into beautifully behaved pets, if each of their owners spends the necessary time. A nice thing about their adoptive families, is that I know several of them, and will thus be able to be kept informed of their growth and progress.
I am so, so happy. I delivered the last one today, and took another for a short visit with her new family. They will be out of the country for a few weeks, so I am puppysitting her until their return. Gotta say...her new 'Daddy' is gorgeous...just sayin'! ~smile~
We are keeping one...Moose...pictured above.
Other than that...I am looking forward to my house returning to some semblance of normality...or almost normal anyway.
There were days when it felt as if there were not enough hours...it seemed I was either cleaning up after them, feeding and watering them...and then...cleaning up after them again. It will be nice to not be going through over 20 pounds of dogfood each week too.
Don't get me wrong...I enjoyed having them around...well...most of the time.
Watching them grow, observing each change within and without, playing with them, nurturing them, bonding with several. They each knew me instantly when I entered a room...although that is probably because the sight, sound and scent of me meant FOOD!
I will miss them...but I am ONE VERY HAPPY WOMAN TONIGHT!
