This month I'm on a roll. I managed to get 3 cats into great forever homes and then this Friday a friend called and said she rescued a dog which had been abandoned at a gas station. Could I help her with it. Not the way I had planned on spending my day off.

I contacted my animal loving neighbor and asked if she could foster this dog. She named her Sadie. I offered to walk her and be there when they needed me. I babysat her dog and Sadie one night while she and her husband had plans for the evening already planned before Sadie entered the picture.

Sadie was low key, loving, compliant, great on a leash, obedient and bonded immediately with me. She followed me everywhere. My SO,who is a dog person, came over and confirmed what a great dog she was and how attached she was to me.

I took her running with me this morning. Took her into Starbucks with me. She was obedient. I dropped her off at my neighbors and she jumped their wall and came sat by my door. so I took her back and she cried at the door when I went back home.

a woman came over which was a friend of my neighbors from the dog park. she had to put one of her dogs down. Her remaining dog was lonely. Sadie did well in the introductions and they got along great. But she kept coming back to me and sitting by me. When the woman said shed take her I didn't walk her out to the car because I didn't want her to think I was abandoning her. My heart was sad and happy. I wish cats were as easy to get adopted out as Sadie was!
