So...where were we????
Oooh! well I waited for several days and was finally approved.
Now for the trip to the Detroit area. I got up early on Dec. 9th and headed out. I drove to Fort Wayne, Indiana the first day. Dec. 10th I headed to the Detroit suburb to meet with the foster mom, sign adoption papers and finally get my new furbaby.
This was the welcoming sight when I arrived at the foster home.
Lucy and me, on the deck, trying to encourage Arigato to come outside with us. Well Lucy was actually checking the yard for squirrels and/or vicious rabbits.
Tiny timid steps...just to come outside to be with me. Just breaks my heart to see this lil baby so scared and yet still so trusting, but ~ she did it.
We changed her name to Maggie...doesn't she look like a Maggie???
Today is Jan. 2nd, 2016, and she's been here since Dec. 12th. She is trying so hard to be the perfect baby...she is almost completely housebroken, goes down the deck steps by herself, but still has to have me in sight and near at all times.
She finally ran, the other day...so funny. Lucy is a hunter and can run like the wind~Maggie runs like a doe. Her head is up and kind of prances rather than a hard run.
So...with lots of love, I welcome Maggie into my life and heart...
