Our trip to Spokane was a big success and resulted in a very happy ending for Angel. We were prepared to bring her back if we felt that this home was not appropriate. But it was immediately obvious that Angel had hit the doggie jackpot! Chae was an incredibly sweet young woman and absolutely delighted to finally have a Corgi:
There was a big, fenced in backyard and lots of love evident all around. As sad as it was to say goodbye, we knew Angel was where she was meant to be. We've been in contact with Chae all weekend and Angel is adapting well and is already a member of the family. I think some people thought we were a little crazy to drive all that way for one little dog, but we just knew this was the right thing to do for little Angel. We came home to a very relaxed and happy Maggie, as well!
Today was a wonderful, hectic, crazy day as we welcomed Abby's sister, two children and her mom for a family get together. Thank goodness for sunshine and dry weather as the four kids and Maggie had a wonderful time chasing each other around the yard. Both of Abby's sister's children really took to Maggie. Ryo, the little boy liked kicking Maggie's ball so she could chase it and Nana, the little girl just liked to sit and pat her. By the end of the day we had four exhausted kids and one tired puppy!
This has been the first time in about 11 years that Abby and her sister and mom have been together. It was great to see so many happy faces:
It was hilarious trying to get four wiggly kids still enough for a decent photo, but I think we managed. And it was great sharing the grandma duties with Abby's mother:
The long road trip provided lots of time for knitting. I finished a pair of socks and the back of hubby's Cambridge jacket. I promise photos next time. For now - I'm just going to sit back and relax!
