|Derek and Chess, two happy faces|
|Piper on top last Saturday|
We were there today instead, with normal service being resumed next Sunday, and although I wasn't expecting much in the way of adoptions the afternoon got off to a great start with two pups going home together, Piper and Tequila. In fact most of the other pups-in-foster hadn't even arrived by the time the lucky twosome were chosen, making the decision a fairly easy one for the pups' new family.
|I was so happy that Marla will stay with her foster family|
I really thought that Chess would be going to a new home too, and he still might once the family have had time to think and talk about it, so instead he ended up going to a new foster home as his holiday foster had to go back to work.
|Tiffin in foster|
Tiny teacup Yorkie boy Tiffin also stopped by to have his adoption papers completed. This is the ex-breeder dog who was thrown out because his back legs were paralysed, and it was the luckiest and best thing that could have happened. While he's been in foster he has regained use of his legs almost completely, and I assume that he will continue to get stronger over time.
|Alice and Raisin|
Our photographer for the afternoon was Marco Lam, although I will have to leave home early and won't have any photos to post before I go. So just for some colour and interest I've stolen a photo from trainer Alice Lau's Facebook page of herself and puppy Raisin as well as the words she used to describe her: This little girl is a 極品, didn't want to stay on the puppy side, always escaped to the other side, fearlessly played with all dogs big and small, said hello to every stranger! Her foster said she learnt to pee poo on the right spot in a few days, settled in real quick, no whining, no chewing... What more can you ask for?!
