For those of you who were following the saga of my foster bc/spaniel mix, Diamond, I wanted to give a quick update. I took her back into foster care last month because her elderly owners just couldn't handle her. A few days ago she went to her new home. Her new family loves her to death. They have a fenced half acre yard for her to run around in and they also like to take her for walks. Eventually she will work up to jogging several miles with her new mom! When they picked her up they had a crate with a blanky and a new toy. It seems like a perfect match!

I also transported a seven year old beagle to her new home with Diamond's previous owners. She needed a new home because the family had several young kids and felt like they were neglecting the dog. She has been there almost a month and it also seems to be a perfect match! The dog basically likes to sit around and watch TV, so she is much more suited to their lifestyle.

I know I complained before about these people, so you might wonder why I helped them to get another dog. I grilled them extensively before agreeing to help them get this beagle, and they gave me all the right answers. It really did seem to be just a bad match between them and Diamond because of activity level.

So, happy endings all around!


Groucho/Gretchen's first owners called and wanted to know how she was. So I called them and talked to one of the kids. She is doing fine. Then I called T back and told her she is doing fine. I told her about Mrs. D calling, and she said she thought I was going to say that she asked for Gretchen back.

Hi Amy, it's Dana, the girl that adopted Gretchen. I wanted to tell you that Gretchen is doing great, she really seems to like us. We taught her how to give paw and how to speak. If there is anything you'd like to know or let us know, you can e-mail me at this address. Thanks alot, I'm really glad we found her, she's a splendid dog!


Hi Dana, thanks for the update! She's a wonderful dog and I'm glad she found such a good home. I still have the blanket that her first owners gave me. I meant to give it to you when you adopted her, but I forgot. So that gives me a good excuse to come and visit sometime!

It's great to hear from you! Tell your family I said hello, and please keep in touch!
