I got another chance to do it today as we drove the FoG greyhound bus a few miles northeast to Coconut Creek. This time, we had two guys in the van -- Savvy and Posey. Debbie, Kim and the two young girls, Riley and Hayley, met those two dogs last weekend at the FoG adoption event in Boca Raton and decided they wanted to adopt both.
The plan was to leave one of the dogs there today, return to Sunrise with the second one and then to come back to Coconut Creek with the second dog a couple of weeks later, after the women adjusted to having the first one in the home.
Savvy loved the place. He checked out every corner of the house -- inside and out -- and obviously approved. When we were all gathered in the living room, I handed Savvy's leash off to Michelle and went out to the van to get Posey, who then took his own tour of the property.
After a discussion with Michelle, the ladies decided to adopt Savvy today. They said they want to adopt Posey in a couple of weeks, but they gave their blessing for Michelle to adopt him out elsewhere if someone speaks up for him. Debbie and Kim agreed that if Posey finds a home elsewhere by the time they're ready for a second dog, they would happily pick out another one from the kennel.
So for now, congratulations to Savvy on his new home. He's going to get a ton of attention from his new family. The youngsters especially are thrilled to death.
Saturday gathering: Bring your hounds to One Last Cast BBQ on the Flamingo Road Nursery grounds. Dusty and I will be there around 11 a.m. Michelle plans to have Posey and Domino with her. Nothing better than great barbecue, beautiful hounds and great people on a Saturday afternoon.
