Update !

Got a call earlier : Ben is doing just fine. They said he's real calm but playfull , ran around their pool with his ball this morning ! He met the rest of the family (all furry) and they all get along. He got a brand new bed too. I should get pictures soon.

Frenchy, I am soo happy for you and Ben that he has found a great home. You always seem to find the most perfect match for your foster dogs.....I guess being patient is worth it!

That's just it. You can't jumped on the first ones just because they're interested about your foster (like one of the first family that wanted him .... but just because they were doing US a favor no thank you !)

Oh Frenchy, I'm so happy that you found the perfect home for Ben. It's so hard to find good homes for younger dogs, never mind the seniors! But you did it....way to go! And thank you to these wonderful people that open their homes and hearts to adopting older dogs!!

I miss everything, sorry I am posting so late, Frenchy.

Wahoo for Ben, sounds like he is going to a wonderful retirement home, pool and all. I know how hard it is to say goodbye to you.

I know you are tiny, I was thinking more of the number of furry bodies on the bed, I've seen pictures of your bed, there is hardly enough room for you!
