I know you all are anxious to hear about how Johnnie is doing in her now home. To put it simply, she’s doing absolutely fabulous! Here are bits and pieces from email updates I’ve been getting from her adopters (yes, they are awesome at keeping me updated!).
Day 1 – 3
“You were not kidding, she is a sleepy dog! We bought her a dog bed and as soon as we brought it home she knew it was for her. When we put it on the ground she grabbed it and started “nesting” almost immediately!
If anything she is an angel in the house. Not too crazy at all, actually very calm. Whenever she wants to play she grabs a toy out of the toy bin and starts playing with it. Sometimes she’ll follow us around the condo and is always very interested about what we are doing in the kitchen! We bought hotdogs, string cheese, plain yogurt and pumpkin to use. We haven’t used the pumpkin yet. Today I’m going to make pumpkin and yogurt ice treats to put in her Kong for later.”
“We had a very good experience taking her over to the family house yesterday. We walked her around the block, and then Stella and Max met us around the corner for a group walk. It went very well and we ended up staying until 10:30! There were a few moments were she got too excited, but we were able to correct it. At the end of the night she was sleeping in my lap. I love her cuddles.
Thank you so much for your continued help and advice. Yes, it feels like the week has gone so well considering it’s been such a big transition for JC!!! She is the most loving girl, and we are so ecstatic about her and her wagging butt.”
We had quite the busy weekend with my family and JC! We went to Shenandoah Saturday and took JC to Hazeltop and Rapidan Loop for nice day hike. She did really well on the hike and we brought extra food and drink for her, too. It rained a little on us and Johnnie gave us a classic Eeyore face, but as soon as the rain stopped her smile came back! I attached a picture of us at Rapidan with her (and her stylish backpack!). T and I decided to buy a year pass to Shenandoah!
“Everything with JC is going really well! Everyone falls in love with her where ever we go, and we keep finding more toys to give her. We bought an “invincible” squeaky toy and she pretty much destroyed it in 10 or so minutes…
Here are some more pics to brighten your day! My dad told me she is the most photogenic dog he has ever met!”
And with that, I will share with everyone the photos that literally made my
day week month:
I know you’re thinking what I’m thinking right now: couldn’t be more perfect, right? I love her. I love them. I love their little family. I love the happiness. I love the LOVE.
A perfect way to kick off a three-day weekend! Happy almost Memorial Day!
