Got A Call, But Not THE Call

Hi everyone,

I have semi-exciting news. Someone from the organization called me this morning while i was at school, and i suspect (with some reassurance from Sam) that it was someone from the puppy program!! :D :D

I have called her back, and now am anxiously awaiting her return call, hopefully saying she has my baby waiting in the kennels! :D

I will, of course, update all three readers of this blog when i get more news ;)

Puppy Trip!!!!

Hi everyone,

Here's the promised post on Saturday's puppy trip!

Well everyone met up at the mall, and it was AWESOME to see Amy, Amy and Sam again. There were i think eleven pups in total, including one working dog. We stopped for lunch first, and then we made our way around the mall after a pee break (where i almost stepped in dog poop!)

Since i had never been on one of these trips before, it was all new to me, but it was so much fun! (as everything is with puppies, except for house training! lol) I saw reactions from people that were complete opposites, everything from "keep up the good work", to "Awww! Cute puppies!" to people running away when they saw me coming!

It was slightly crazy and chaotic, to say the least :) There were two "photo shoots", one as a group picture, and one where everyone just loaded all the dogs onto me, Sam, Amy and Amy. Here two pictures from our second photo shoot. The first is the planned picture of just the four of us and their puppies plus Naveed, the puppy i was working. The second one was after everyone piled all their dogs on us.

See the difference? lol The Amy on the right is holding Calvin, Sam's cream Standard poodle, the Amy second from the right is holding Echo, her black lab baby ;), Sam is holding Winter, Amy's yellow lab, and I'm holding Naveed. The black lab that is between the Amy Squared is Blossom. In the next picture, Polar, Whisper, Eden and Dart were thrown in as well. (Too bad Amigo wasn't there:( )I just love the second picture because look at poor Calvin!! He was fine sitting like a human
being until mean Amy smushed Echo on top of him
and you can just tell he's thinking "Please, thirty pound lab, get off of me!!" LOL just kidding :D

Overall, it was one of the funnest days I've had in a long time. Thanks for inviting me guys, and also thanks for sharing your puppies with me!!! Can't wait til next time! (Hopefully I'll have my baby by then, though :P )

Good News!

Hi everyone,

Sorry, i know it's been a really long time since my last post. But i finally have some puppy news! Someone from the organization called yesterday and said they received my application, and that everything looked good. So now at least i definitely know I'm on the list, but it's the hardest part now-waiting!! I'm so anxious to get a puppy!!

But I'm gonna get my puppy fix this weekend; I'm meeting up with some other foster families. I'm especially excited cuz Amy, Amy and Sam are going! ( i know, you guys must think i'm in love with those three or something, but trust me, I'm not--we're just the Crazies! :P )
Anyways, keep an eye out for my post about that! It should be lots of fun! Can't wait to see my godson Cal again, and to see Winter and finally meet Echo!

Also, congrats AMY and ICE! Amy's first puppy is now a successful SSD, he's graduating tomorrow night! Amy, you did awesome with your baby, and he's going to make someone's life a whole lot better! Congrats, I'm proud of you guys! (i know i sound like i'm forty, lol, shut up :P)
