Unfortunately, today was the day we had to say goodbye to Bonnie. A family sponsored by Scottie Rescue of North Carolina adopted her. We learned that we were the first foster parents in this organization here in the Charlotte area. Anyway, it was hard to say goodbye to Bonnie, especially for Lisa as she had become very attached to her over the past couple of months. Here are a couple pictures.

This and that...

Not much going on. I worked from home for the first time today saving 3 hours of drive time. We also closed on our home refinance. Our rate is 4.75%. Hard to believe the first house we bought was at 13%. Course, we'll be 70 years old before it's paid off. Oh well, the American way. The Scottie rescue believes they have found a home for Bonnie. The family is coming by tomorrow and may be taking her home with them. It will be bittersweet as we will miss her but I'm sure they've picked out a good home for her. Jack is doing well. He has started on a new medication to pick up his appetite and so far seems to be working. We'll keep you posted.

Spring break

Jack is enjoying spring break. Not so sure about Lisa but Jack's behavior seems better these days so maybe it's not too bad. Bonnie had her staples out and is now running around as fast as her little feet can carry her. She is standing on her hind legs against the kitchen cabinets in hopes of reaching the counters. Wishful thinking. We are looking forward to dinner with Kyria, Terry and Karen from paws4people tomorrow night. Enjoy the pictures from Easter.

Dog stuff....

Bonnie is recovering well. She gets her staples out on Monday and then will have free reign in the backyard. She's so little that she might slip under a gate if we're not careful. Meanwhile, we received this beautiful picture of CAYLIE from paws4people. We are looking forward to having all our boys home this weekend. Happy Easter everyone!

Sad news

It is with a great deal of sadness that we announce that the newborn puppy didn't make it. Lisa rushed Bonnie to the vet this morning when it appeared she was in distress. The vet said that it is not uncommon when small breeds only have a single pup for the pup to be too big for the birth canal. They were unable to revive the puppy after removing it from Bonnie. Bonnie is fine and will come home probably later today after she recovers from her surgery. Bonnie is a real sweet girl and we hope that she finds a good home soon. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

Stay tuned....

Just spoke to Lisa and apparently the birth is imminent. Hopefully, we'll have good news to report shortly.
