Dreamin' of Dewey

All I find myself doing these days is counting down until I leave for Dewey.  I have been wanting to go for so long.  My sister took this picture of Sadie and Boris this spring in Florida at Hound Dog Howlidays.  I will be travelling without my hounds, but I'm sure there will be plenty of dogs needing some extra love.

Hannah Goes Home

On the past Saturday, September 8th, Hannah started her trip north to her forever home.  My friend Kim and I made our way to the GPA Indianapolis picnic where we were meeting up with the folks from the Greyhound Alliance to make the handoff. 
I didn't have too many good pictures of Hannah, so when they wanted to take a picture of us, I jumped at the opportunity.  I immediately felt better when they had a gorgeous orange collar, complete with identification tags, ready to put on my girl.  Time to say good bye came way too soon.  I haven't cried over too many of my fosters, but I bawled like a baby over Hannah.  In public too.  She is a very special girl.
Hannah meeting her new momma.  This lady adopts seniors and special needs dogs.  Of course, Hannah thinks she is neither one of those.  She is a spunky ole gal, doesn't know she is 10 years old.
It was a bittersweet moment for me, that for sure.  Yesterday, I finally brought myself to wash her bed (folded up comforter) that she always laid on.  I still find myself looking for her when I do the head count.  I know she is in good hands, but dang, I miss that dog.

I had the pleasure of going to Florida last weekend to pick up 5 dogs to bring back for our group.  Two of the five were already spoken for.  It seems like we are on a roll right now on adoption applications.  Sneakers is the brindle girl. Josh is the black boy with a beautiful shiny coat.  These two are being fostered together and still are very close.

 This little cutie is Ripley.  She came home with me to foster for a family.  Funny, funny girl.  She would just sit right between the seats of the van and look out just like a person would.
 These brindle beauties are Delay on the left and Sneakers on the right.  Love those brindles.

This is Ripley at my house.  She is an absolute doll.  After about the second day, I said it was a good thing she was promised to a family already.  She is super smart, beautiful markings and a bubbly personality.  She had a broken leg and is recovered now.  She went home to her forever family on Friday.  They absolutely adore her and plan on spoiling her rotten.
