M.I.A... DUE TO......


Okay, maybe I'm biased... but is she not the CA-UTEST THING???!! 

Here's what happened.

Remember I said I was starting to learn how to train dogs for movies and TV?  Well, my mentor/trainer suggested I foster dogs from a rescue organisation that rescues dogs from kill shelters in Mexico and the US, I had already thought of doing that already, but when she suggested this one place I went to their website.. And that's when I saw this picture:

My immediate thought was... SERIOUSLY a great look for movies/tv and commercials, and also POOR LITTLE THING!  She was found in a box with her puppies (who did not make it) on the streets of Cabo and from there she went to the humane society in Cabo and then a foster home in Mexico.  When I emailed the place about her, they said she already had a foster to adopt situation.  I was so dissappointed, I just knew she was my dog, I can't explain it.  So I got very sad, kept her picture and moved on.  Meanwhile my mentor had noticed her too and thought the same thing.  ANYway, so then we were waiting to take in a new foster named Peanut, a very cute dog, but we were definately not going to keep him, we were just going to foster.  The night before he was due to arrive in Canada from LA the organisation emailed me to say they had found him a foster/adopt person, and I was thrilled for little Peanut!  And then...

They said that "Shorty" was available!  (that was the name they gave her) and that her adoption in Calgary was not working out....

I IMMEDIATELY said I would take her in and that we would consider adopting her, depending on how things went (the other owner said she had food agression issues, which she DOES NOT).  ANYway, I picked her up on Tuesday and yesterday after we met with my mentor/trainer and she LOVED her and worked with her a bit and said she was EXCEPTIONALLY smart for training and in general and that if I did not take her she would... I came home and we officially adopted her.

Her name is PIPER and she is just SO SWEET, and very very smart indeed.  She gets along very well with our two girls, our crotchety old cat, and our 9 year old dog... like she was just meant to be there!  She is around 1 years old and we are sooo happy! 

So that is why I have not been on my blog!  But I will be back up and posting next week. 

Have a terrifac weekend!

Aww congrats! I wish I could take in another pet, but unfortunately my dog is a brat and won't share her attentions, lol.

Sooooooo cute! Great story. It was meant to be! All three of our dogs are rescues, along with the cats and even one of the horses. Kudos to you and your generous heart - and good luck with the training!
