And Then There Were Seven

Yep, one of the puppies was adopted last night! Prima, the first born of the litter(yeah, I know, really original name, but it was the best I could do at the time), was adopted by a nice young couple. Not sure what the guy does for a living, but the girlfriend works for PetSmart, so they'll have all the resources they need to keep her healthy and happy. They've renamed her "Cookie," which is okay, I guess (her coat resembles cookies and cream ice cream, kinda sorta).

In other puppy news...

... One Ring and I are taking Domino to meet prospective adopters tonight. In a chance meeting last Sunday, we met this couple as we were leaving an adoption event. They saw Domino, and said they were looking for a puppy who could hold her own against a larger dog. Well, Domino takes on Barney whenever she can, so we pointed her out and let them hold her for a few moments.

Hopefully, it will continue to be love at first sight, and we'll have her in a new home this weekend. Domino got her shots yesterday (as did Prima, Hogan, and Rorschach), so she's all ready to go.

The real stress comes with trying to find homes for all the puppies before we head off for Disney World on the 17th. Two weeks! But while we have lodging all set up for Barney and Kona, we were operating under the assumption that the pups would all be in homes - either foster or permanent - by then. A couple of days ago, we got word that there may not be foster homes open. Grrr. So now we're working on plans B, C, and D.

The puppies want to go to Disney World, but I have told them that is definitely not going to happen! : )

One hour left. Time to check on the news, get the paperwork done, and then maybe blog some more if nothing more needs doing.
