Foster Dogs Reviews & Home Offer

Chloe and Amber have a home offer!  Their new owners are coming all the way from Kent to meet them tomorrow.  They have 4 sheep and three horses and want dogs that will not chase them. C&A have shown zero signs of chasing anything other than dogs in the last three months, so I feel fairly confident about that.

Philmophlegm has reviewed them as a pair : "Probably the best foster dogs we've every had!" he said, glowingly.    Clearly the tummy upsets, leg amputation, and disappearing dog have been forgiven...

A dogwalker from the village reviewed them less warmly "Goodness me! I never thought you'd get a home for them" she said, when I mentioned the adopters were on their way.

Now to see if I can manage to keep my resolution to leave off fostering for a bit.

Edited to add a photo of Philmophlegm dancing with Amber shortly before she left, just because it amuses me.

That's not quite what I said.

My actual reviews were:

Chloe: "The best behaved foster dog we've ever had."
Amber: "Behaved well after you cut her leg off."

If that isn't an incentive to behave well I don't know what is!

Another incentive to behave well is that PP might dance with her if she didn't. Inserted photo of Pp and Amber dancing... :-D

Congratulations, I hope, to Chloe and Amber.

Hope the visit goes well.

Can you bear to part with them?

Well, I did manage to hand them over in the end! It was really hard though, they were a really nice pair of dogs and not difficult to look after. I have to admit though, it was quite relaxing this evening, just walking my own two. It just feels much easier to walk and drive places without four big dogs filling up the whole car!

I think it went well! They went off today and I've just had a call to say they have safely arrived at the other end and seem to be settling in OK.

Oh, I do hope they settle in well, they were a lovely pair, I shall miss reading about them.

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
