Last weekend Wendy M. from Missoula came out to visit with a few of our dogs she was thinking about adopting. After taking them for walks and hanging out for a while with them, Wendy fell for not one but two of our disabled dogs -- blind-and-deaf Baron and blind Stoney!
Wendy said she wanted a cuddle-bug little dog who just wanted to curl up in your lap and snuggle, and she also wanted a dog she could take for hikes and long walks. Well, Baron fit the first requirement perfectly and Stoney was the energetic, outdoorsy dog.
So when she left the ranch last Saturday, Wendy said she wanted to buy some dog beds and other things to get her house ready (she already had a fenced yard), but that she would return at the end of the week to get the two dogs.
When Wendy arrived back here Friday evening, we had Baron and Stoney waiting for their new Mom. I took the photo of the three of them above just before they left for Missoula. Wendy emailed today to say that both dogs had done really well over the weekend. She reports that on their evening walks together, Stoney loves to jump into the nearby creek. (She's the original waterdog!)
As for the cuddle-bug dog ... well, before Wendy had even started down the drive Friday evening, look who had made himself at home on her lap:
