Awww....Amazing Grace says, "Thanks"!

I'll repost a picture or two from the TJT here cuz I don't have any others, yet... There will be more later--hazel bought 2 5-packs of film and hopes it will be enough

When it gets sunny, of course, I'll try to get some video, too. She moves a lot like Macie...and she's fast! Those little legs really move!!!!

She's only the size of a big beagle--about 33 pounds! We have to use a puppy collar for her until we can get her a new one--the one we bought for her is way too big. She's our smallest lap-dog ever!

I'd like to add some cats, but with a setter's prey drive being what it is, hazel has decided it's probably not a good idea to add felines... I'd sure like to, though---nothin' like a cat purring in your lap

Congrats Hazel! She's a beauty!! She's got some intense eyes on her. And she's cocking her head as if she is listening to you. Oh, I can see this is gonna be a hard first test on the fostering!

In the 2nd photo, Grace is saying with relief, "Thank you Mommy and Daddy."

I'm so happy for you Hazelrunpack, but I'm even happier for Grace .

I think it's going to be a losing battle, this fostering... How do you guys do it!!!!????? aaarrrrrggggghhhhhhhh!

Just had to get that out... hazel is better now...

I still can't get over how teeny she is. This picture shows it a little better--but you really notice it when she and Brier are tussling. I hope to get some pics of that tomorrow--she and Brier seem to remember each other and get along famously, as long as Grace doesn't have a zoomie... If she starts running, the whole Pack takes off after her. Must be kinda intimidating looking behind and seeing a posse of 7 behind her!

Anyway, here's the picture--she's fourth from the back.

Name:  Grace joining the rest of the Pack at the Perimeter 8-19-07.jpg

She doesn't have her adult coat yet, so between the short coat and the small size she still looks so puppyish! Acts a little puppyish, too--likes to gum gently at fingers.

Our biggest worry right now, though, is that we're having a really hard time coaxing her to eat! She's got great energy, her stools are good, she's peeing regularly, and she seems pretty happy, but she just doesn't want to eat... Go figure.

oh, and rainbow? Considering hazel's weak will and lack of fortitude...your name choices are not helping!!!!

She is tiny compare to the others don't worry about her eating , she's settling in right now. I'm sure playing with the others will make her very very hungry soon.

She's always on the move--exploring, zooming, taking it to Brier

I wouldn't worry so much about the not eating so soon after arriving, but she seems to be losing weight already and she's such a tiny thing!

We finally got her to eat with the help of Ms. Yogurt. Then she celebrated by having her first potty accident in the kitchen right afterward. So much like a puppy!

Hazel Thanks!! Yes, I see a wee cutie in your newsletter.....Love your hole digging stories and the crazy photo on page 6. Almost looks rabid!

Gracie is a smart doggie! Already holding out for the good stuff you have stashed away!

Thanks! Grace is a cutey, H.P....and she loves to be reminded of it! She's a great cuddler, too.

That picture of Lil Belle was rather frightening, wasn't it, dogwalker? She really gets into her digging.

Amazing Grace
How sweet the hound
Who came to Hazel Run....

She once was lost,
But now she's found.
Tomorrow, she'll have fun

hazel's been singin' it all day. (It's raining heavily or Grace would've had more fun today!)

I think we better set DubyaD up as our in-house bookie to start taking odds on whether you're going to last as a "foster" parent.
