Yay for a good news story. I am comfortable knowing that when my time comes my son will not abandon my pets in their time of need (nor will DH, but he'd have to fight my son for custody). It's good to know my pets are loved. Thank you to all who have helped to save this beautiful pup.

We're just trying to figure out the logistics of actually getting somewhere to pick her up! Hopefully we will be picking her up the week after next though.

And yeah, of course there will be lots of pics after she's here.

If you want to take the scenic route, you can meet up at Hazel Run :rolleyes: Gadz, there are times when I definitely wish we lived further east! :p

Can't wait for the pics! I hope the logistics get worked out soon! :goodvibes:

I can't help it! :yell:

I have to wait until my husband gets back home from work (on the 31st) so he can drive to wherever he's picking the dog up (which we're not sure about yet...thought it would be Michigan but turns out we may be able to do somewhere closer).

I wish we could, but this is gonna have to be a quick drive up there and get the dog (possibly without me, since I have classes).
Usually if we're driving somewhere it ends up a pretty long road trip and we drive around to see stuff, but the fall semester just started so I'm not going anywhere anytime soon :sad:.

You'd have to be lost to find here, anyway... :o We're sorta off the beaten track! :D

Classes! How exciting! You gonna end up as a vet? If so, I'll offer you a retainer and living quarters! :laughing:

Haha, you obviously don't know how me and my husband do road trips :laughing:
Sometimes we just drive around aimlessly and find interesting stuff. That's the best way IMO (if you have some extra money on hand, otherwise you might end up stranded :rolleyes:)

Not becoming a vet. It's nearly impossible to get into a veterinarian program, and I don't think I'd be confident enough to work on people's pets :o. Not to mention I'd probably go broke treating a bunch of animals for free.
I'm going into biology (eventually ichthyology (fish) and herpetology (reptiles))

Thanks everyone. My husband should be picking her up on the 2nd. I won't be able to go because of classes (I have some tests that week otherwise I'd go anyway) :sad:, but oh well, that's how things go sometimes!

I'd love to see more pics of her Winston. Since I can't meet her until she gets here, that will have to do for now. :)

My Bird Is evil I will do my best with the pics. My portion of the drive is only about 3 hours return so you should be able to see any pics before she arrives the next day! It'll give you a little something to look forward too! I still cant thank you enough for taking this gal into your home! :thumbs up your kindness will be returned some day I honestly beleive that!

who has the pup right now??? The previous owners' family??

Sylvie
August 29th, 2009, 08:11 AM
The owners daughter:yuck: has the pup, but gave us to the end of the month to find a home or she would be put down. :eek: I was able to get them to give us another week. Not to worry, if they would not have held her, I would have fostered her.
