We be suckers
« on: August 04, 2011, 03:10:13 pm »
But this little girl is with a temporary foster who doesn't care for her much, and Heike is having problems with the family dog. At 12 1/2, her options are limited, but Randall and I told ATDR that if they can get her to Waco from Corpus, we'll take her in.

She looks like she'd be fine here. Our dogs are more used to new dogs joining the pack and most of her "issues" sound like all she needs is a stable environment and they will likely fade away (the separation anxiety, for example).

From a conformation standpoint, she's strictly a pet, but that doesn't change the fact she needs a sanctuary. We've got lots of room for 8 pound dogs here, so she'll fit right in. Not sure when she'll be here, but the foster parent is wanting her moved soon, so I expect it will be sooner rather than later.

so cute! She's adorable. No wonder your hearts melted.

We got one of our dogs from a Dog's Home back in 2003, he was 6 then and not exactly what we were looking for, but he wormed his way into our hearts immediately. Lucky for him too, because we found out after we adopted him that he was going to be put down in a week because he had been there for so long :eek:

Nope. Showing won't happen again.

The thing is, I've found my "eye" expects certain things, and without those things, I don't find a complete dog.

Penny, for instance, is very close to show quality, and, in many ways, is exactly (or better) than what I'd expect from a show quality mini-long. So my eye is happy. :)

Heike, OTOH, is no where near that kind of dog. My eye isn't happy.

But like I said, she needs a sanctuary, so my eye is just going to have to get over it. I guess this is just a left over from my days of showing. It only seems to happen with dachshunds, really.

Not yet. I think it's going to be a couple of weeks before she can be transported up here. Right now she's in Corpus, and I think the plan if for her to get into Austin next weekend. After she's there, they'll get with us and we'll figure out when she'll get in here.
