Sunday we went to meet the foster Mom we know who had a dog of interest to us. We were also interested in a dog coming from the South on transport, so we met them all at the transport meeting location.
We fell in love with "Wesley" (above). The dog from transport was going to be too much for us, although she is beautiful and I'm sure will have a home in no time. As we sat with "Wesley" another dog came up and started to play with him; this was "Wendy." After their playing was over, "Wendy" came up and laid down right in between Keith and me. At one point she rested leaned against Keith's leg and later she rested her head on my knee. She totally picked us.
Now, we had no intentions of adopting TWO dogs, but these guys played together and then rested together and just chilled with us! I've been in contact with the foster Mom since and the two are even choosing to share a crate. You'd think they were siblings, but they aren't! "Wesley" is a shepherd mix; "Wendy" is a vizsla mix.
We're waiting to see how they do individually and then together with cats. If all goes well, we may be doubling the number of kids we have! The kitties are not going to be happy at all! Everyone will need some time to adjust, but the ratio of male:female remains the same. Whew!
By the way, we're going to change their names. I'm not going to get into that now, though. I'll wait until we sign the adoption papers. Oh, and yes, it's an open adoption that we're negotiating :-)
