Hello Cathie, Stella is doing well and warming up to us.  She is starting to follow us around a little bit and is curious about us.  She even went and sat on Sherry's lap today on her own.  When I came home from school, I sat down on the floor and she willingly came over to me for some pets.  She slept in her own bed right next to ours last night, as she seemed more comfortable to have her own space.  She did get up a couple times, as you mentioned she would.  We are letting her take the lead on where she feels safest sleeping.  She's had a few accidents, but we anticipated that and know it is common when you bring a dog into a new home and environment.  We are not worried about it and I'm confident with positive praise and gentle re-direction we will work it all out.  I've attached a picture from today.  Would you like an update again tomorrow? Our plan this weekend is to just be home with her and let her get to know us.  Thank you again for making the trip in the weather.  We are just so thrilled to have Stella with us!  Hope your ride home was okay.  Best, Leigh

3/7/15: Hi Cathie, Stella had a great night.  She is still preferring her own bed, which is totally fine.  She has a nice soft comfy bed right next to ours.  Our friends are here for the day (the ones who we were dog sitting for.)  Stella is amazing with them.  She went to them for pets, let them pick her up and even sat next to one of them on the couch.   She is doing great peeing on the pad, but still having trouble pooping there.  We are working in it.  She seems relaxed and comfortable.  I've attached 2 more photos.  We'll send you a photo of the three of us tomorrow.  Thanks!  Leigh
3/8: Good Afternoon Cathie, Stella had a great night until about 3:30 am, when she got restless and paced around.  I waited a bit to see if she would settle down.  When she did not, I held her for a while and she seemed to like that.  She went back to bed for a little while then started being restless and pacing again.  I thought she might be hungry, so gave her a little bit of food, cuddled with her some more and that seemed to do the trick.  She went back to bed after that.  She seems to be doing just fine today.  She is doing much better on her pads and seems relaxed.  She enjoys being where we are and comes to us often for a pet or to be held.  I've attached some more photos for you.  We love her so much!  Leigh
3/11: Hi Cathie, Stella had a great day!  She slept through the night last night, had no accidents today, and enjoyed a car ride today to the beach.  She is really enjoying going outside in the yard too!  She is really relaxing.  Now we are working on having her wear her harness, and will eventually work on walking on a leash.  We'll get there.  She has made remarkable progress so far!  We will let you know how the vet appointment goes tomorrow and are hoping we can make her adoption final after that.  Leigh
3?12: Stella was great at her vet appointment today!  We just love her!!  We can make the adoption final.  Thank you for everything.  Fondly, Leigh PS: The vet was very impressed with how organized and complete her paper work was.


Hi Kerri, Cutty  has his fur-ever home with us. Yes. we are foster failures for him, and if foster failure is wrong... then we don't want to be right.
 He has come such a long way...still the Alpha boy, but we wouldn't change a thing.  :)


Hi Kerri, Maurice is doing fabulous settling in and our bonding continues. He is a very sweet boy.  He is quite the jumper and we find him jumping everywhere. His legs are longer than any one of my other yorkies so we are learning not to leave papers and magazines on the coffee table unless we want them shredded :). Love him so much. Will send more pics after his grooming on Friday. He will be my sweet valentine :) Thank you for everything!

 Lola & Livy

Hi Cathie, It was nice meeting you and John yesterday!  Iím about to head off for work, but wanted to give you a report on how the girls are doing.  Lola seems right at home, at ease exploring and following us around.  Poor Livy is nervous on the hardwood floors.  She feels she has to move fast and hasnít realized that if she slows down sheíll be fine. The floors donít bother Lola in the least.  Is your home carpeted?  Right now Livy is staying on the family room rug where she feels safe.  Jim and I have quietly and gently coaxed her off the rug using a few cheerios, but she scoots right back to the rug. Weíll work on it slowly.  They slept together in their bed last night, no problem whatsoever.  I put their pads near their bed and they went on it during the night.  Where can I purchase more of the washable pads? They donít seem to realize what the disposable pads are for.  A few accidents, but weíll get the hang of it. Iíve decided to return the car seat I purchased and showed you yesterday and would prefer to buy a larger crate for when the two are in the car.  I feel they will be safer with a crate belted in. They are both such loves!  Will send pics, but have to dash! I do have some questions and will be in touchÖMany thanks!

1/30/15:Hi Cathie, The girls are adjusting to the size of the house, know where to go for their water in the kitchen from the family room and have also successfully "powdered their noses" several times outside.  We won't mention any "accidents" because I feel like we won megabucks with these girls and that will pass (no pun intended,) I feel we are quickly getting in sync with one another, love them both so much!  Their little jackets are adorable, you were so generous with all the nice things you gave us to start our life together!  I'm so grateful for your wonderful care and compassion, thank you for everything!

Hi Cathie, By all means, please mark Lola and Livy as adopted!  They have restored my heart to a happy state.  Even though it has just been a couple of days with these beautiful little souls, we  are family now! I have made a vet appointment on Feb 5.  I'm sure Dr. Mansfield will be thrilled to see them.  I will let you know how that goes. Two of our boys are coming to see the new additions to the family this weekend, very excited! Have a nice weekend...go Pats! Nikki
