Arrival Story:
Chewy was a foster dog with the Richardson Humane Society. He's an awesome little guy who somehow ended up on the streets of Dallas. Fortunately he found his way into the city shelter, and then the lovely volunteers at RHS found him and took him in, groomed him and promised to refeed, train and socialize him. That's where I came in as foster mom for a time. He was fortunate to not have any health problems after what he'd been through. Even so, he came in at approximately 60% of his healthy weight. A little love, care and socialization over a few weeks and he was set and ready to go to his new home.

Good news! Chewy got taken away to his forever home today (February 2008). He's got a ways to go with training and such, but a nice elderly couple adopted him, and they look like they've got much love to give the Chewymonster along with some grandkids to play with. Meanwhile, there are a lot of other dogs and even a few cats available to people in the DFW area that are interested in adopting. Check out the RHS website: http://www.richardsonhumanesociety .org

Update from my new mommy and daddy:

"We are so pleased with Chewy. He missed his former home the first night and looked for the familiar but is adjusting nicely. Thank you for making it such a nice transition for him and us. I do think he likes being an only dog for the time being--we will see how he does when we are not home during the weekdays. Again, thank you for helping us make the connection. We look forward to Chewy's part in our family for many years."

Yay! They like me, and I like them!!! I've found a forever home!!!

Well, it's official! A lovely man and his wife came and took me away to my forever home. No more expose's at the petstore for me. Just plenty of love and attention. I hope they have it in them to train me cuz I really need some guidance still. But it was part of the contract.'s hopin'! Wish a guy some luck in his forever home!!! YAY!!! :)

Good news! I think I'm getting adopted!!! I went on a home visit, and the ladies at RHS checked out these people, and now they're picking me up on Saturday!!! It's a big day. Hopefully, they'll keep an eye on me since I've got a case of wanderlust going. But it's very exciting! A furever home for wonderfur! It's been a big month for adoptions so far, and I was beginning to think they'd just keep passing me by. But no! Somebody lurves me, somebody wants me, think I'm gonna do a happy dance now! :)
