Well... I finally talked to B last night about how Teddy is doing.
She said he seems to be fine, getting on with the other dogs and Bruce, the cat too.
BUT... she is feeling 'AMBIVILENT' about him. She's not sure she is bonding with him at all.
So, we are giving her another day or two to see if she feels any better about him before making a permanent decision.
I'm feeling awful now, I just want to go and get him back and find him a home where he will be spoilt and loved rotten.
Tomorrow morning I am going to ring her again and go from there.
Onto a cute wee video of Steve and Tallulah last night:
ABOVE: rather cute!
Plans for today? Housework ... gardening, maybe some sewing.
Just a normal saturday, with no grocery shopping, thank God.
BEST NEWS: I got a phone call from Gail this morning. Gail is the lady who is 'Grandma' to Peppa, one of our little girl puppies, they live out Pukekohe way.
She read about Teddy's situation and has offered to adopt him!
I was so happy I almost cried. I talked to B straight away, said we were taking Teddy back and Gayle would be picking him up this afternoon. She was fine with that... I thought she would be.
All going well Teddy will be with his 2nd NEW family in 4 hours.
I'm so relieved, I know Gayle, Jenna and Shane are going to love him to bits. I hope their dogs love him (Eventually) too!
AND we know he is going to a family who know and love Shih Tzus too, and will care for him just like we do.
We will be able to visit Teddy in a couple of weeks, we just need to give him a while to settle in.
ABOVE: Stew is working in the wind and rain. The wire 'fence' is being replaced with a 'Coco Proof' wooden fence.
ABOVE: The girls this afternoon. They are adorable.
Hopefully by now Gayle may have picked up Teddy? Gee I hope he's OK and likes it at her home.
I got to see a short video of Teddy at Gayle's home this afternoon... right after his bath.
He NEEDED a bath cos he stunk like bejezzus apparently! Poor boy, Gayle thinks he picked up some fleas too! FLEAS! OMG we virtually never have fleas.
So, it's turned out really well... he's not unhappy at Gayle's, and her dogs don't seem to mind him at all. Yaaaa... I have such a good feeling about this now.
End of Day: dinner was awesome, the big piece of Pork Belly came out amazing! I took a photo, will show ya tomorrow. Hope it doesn't make you drool!
