Hey ya’ll, how’s it goin’? I’ve got somethin’ real nice I wanna tell ya’ll ’bout… I’m in a foster (probably forever) home! Ya see, this real nice couple applied to adopt me, and came out and met me earlier this month. I was a lil unsure at first, but they played fetch with me out in the yard for a bit which was fun. Then their daughter came to meet me, too, and they all really liked me a lot after we spent some more time together. Anyway, ’cause I’m particular ’bout the humans I like (unless they have something very deee-li-cious, called corn-dogs… Angela, one of my favorite humans always brings them in for me when she visits HSGKC), they weren’t quite sure ’bout how I’d be in a home, so Christine suggested maybe they’d consider fostering me to give me a lil more time to adjust to a home, and they decided to give me a chance!
So, I’ve been livin’ with a mom, a dad, and a daughter who’s home from college for the summer, and I gotta tell ya’ll, I’m lovin’ it!! I went to their house on May 17th, and the day before I left, Christine gave me a bath after Angela and Stan brushed me earlier in the day… well, when I got to the new place, I found a mud puddle to lay in which made my new parents laugh… and I was just doin’ it ’cause it was cool and I like rollin’ around in the grass and mud, I’m a dog after all. Oh, and they started calling me “Betty” instead of Dixie. I kinda like the name Betty… Dixie is nice, too, but Betty means somethin’ to them, so it makes me happy they changed my name… like I think they’re gonna keep me. I’ve met a bunch of new humans, I have a HUGE yard to run around in, humans who take me on 3 walks a day, play fetch with me, and I get TONS of attention. My new humans are real impressed with my manners… like I get to eat dinner when they eat, and I don’t beg for food, I eat my dinner and then just hang out and wait for them to finish. They’re workin’ with me on how I meet new humans, too, and I’m improvin’. Pete and Christine visited today, just to answer some questions my foster mom and dad had. I was real happy to see them, and I showed how much I loved bein’ there ’cause I kept rollin’ over on my back for belly rubs. They got to see the awesome backyard I hang out in, too. They thought I looked sooo happy (Christine kept sayin’ that, and I am real happy).
Well ya’ll, that’s about all the news I’ve got for now… just thought ya might wanna know how things are goin’ for me. I’m just real happy that this family is givin’ me a chance to become a part of it… not a whole lotta humans just want one dog at a time, and I’m real happy they’ve chosen me! I’ll let ya know if they decide to adopt me, so keep readin’ this blog thingy for updates. Bye ya’ll!
