Dori's new home


Dori went to her new home yesterday. I, of course, miss her very much. I expect to find her sprawled out on the floor in the living room or hear her getting in the kitchen trash. I had a very hard time handing over her toys and her bed and grooming items. I kept a couple of toys for the new dog, but other than that everything that was Dori's (except her harness and the feed pan) went with her.



I couldn't have asked for a better family for her. The boys don't seem to tire of playing with her. Their mom keeps in good touch and doesn't mind my calling once in a while just to see how things are going. She also suggested a visit after I come home. I like that idea. Part of me wants to visit before I go, but I think that wouldn't be a good thing. It would just upset me to leave and have Dori going with them again, and I think I'll handle that much better when I have a dog to bring home with me.

Dori's adjustment


I talked to Jen today. Dori's doing well, but she got Jen up four times last night to go park. I think it's probably stress and she'll settle down soon. At least she's making it outside. But here's the interesting part. The family that decided not to take her recommended that I find someone with a doggy door. I sort of snorted in my mind and wondered how on earth I'd find someone. I mean, it isn't every day you meet someone with a doggy door. Well, Jen's family is moving the weekend I go to Seeing Eye. Today Jen happened to mention that the family living there now has a golden retriever and they put in a doggy door, and this was one of the things that sold Jen on the house because she had been wanting a dog. So Dori will have access to the yard anytime she needs it! God's looking out for her, too.
