Dec. 3, 2005

from Gussie's Diary:

Not much to report today. Played in the yard with the dogs who live here. Spent a lot of time thinking about the family that might adopt me.

Talked to my foster mom at length about them. They are an "older" couple, and they have lived with terriers before, but their last doggie was an English Springer Spaniel.

I'm a bit worried about whether they can keep up with a young terrier, pawticularly because I understand that they are living in a small apartment with no yard, and it will have to be walkies on a lead almost all the time.

My foster Mom said wait and see. She also told me that they have a house in a place called Arizona, where it is almost always warm and sunny. That house has almost a half an acre for a play yard.

I will keep an open mind about this.

Gussie, we are soooooo glad you adopterated your muzzer and dad! I think you have found the pawfect place (aside from having Teka in your face all the time)! We know you really, truly love her, but where would the fun be in showing her all the time? Happy Gotcha Day (tomorrow), Gussie!
