Dottie says "Woof Woo", which translates to "Thank You", for all the nice complements she got about being Queen.
In the meantime, we continue to become more attached to each other as every day goes by. The Rescue group she is with is starting to put the word out that she is nearly ready for adoption. I would say she is 99% housebroken at this point. She had a small boo boo last night but only because there was confusion in the house when someone came to pick up a boarder I had. I also think it could have been a small jealousy problem which is another reason she probably needs to be adopted sooner rather than later.
This is a picture of her doing one of the things she loves best, sleeping on my bed! And......I wasn't going to let it happen but.....she now sleeps in bed with me at night. She ALWAYS cuddles up to me at first for great snuggles and kisses but then moves a bit away and settles down. Dottie never crowds me out of bed so she is the best bed partner a gal could have!
Here is a picture of one of her wins during her show career. I don't know if I mentioned it or not but Dottie is an AKC Champion.
I got word a few days ago that there may be a couple interested in meeting her to determine if she would be a good fit into their home. I knew it was coming, but when I actually heard it, a lump went to my throat. I know, I know......everyone thinks I should keep her. Honestly though, with the uproar my life is, I'm not convinced it would be her best option. Also, if I adopt her, I wouldn't have room next winter for another foster who might really need a foster parent.
Soooo....having said that, I need to say......I do like being a foster parent. Knowing that I am helping a 'furbaby' make a successful transition to a 'forever' home feels very good. It fills a need for me as well as for the 'furbaby'!
But.....I already know.....this one won't be easy when it happens!
