Yup, it’s that time! We sat LB down and had the talk.
We are not her furever family, but they have found her! She is going to live with a family of three (a 10-year-old human brother) and a kittie too! Thank goodness we had these kittens so we were able to kitty test LB, and aside from wanting to play with them, she left them alone (lets just say they did not reciprocate the offer…)
She thanked us for letting her crash at our place on her journey to her forever home.
then threw her head back and cackled, “Wahoo!!!! I’m going home!”
We sure will miss sweet girl… There was something very special about her the day I picked her up from the shelter. I picked her up just for a transport, but my heart-strings were tugging to go back to the kennel and get her. Sure enough she showed up the next night to crash after a vet visit. I knew we needed to spend some more time with her! I know it seems quick, but don’t forget she was with someone else for 3-4 weeks before she got here. Besides, we knew this cutie wouldn’t last long. She’s one lucky gal and they are one super lucky family.
Congrats, Lovebug!!! You’ve only been gone for three days and we already miss you. Lucky for us, the rotating door has swung again and there is a new dude in the house…
And he’s got a cute tush.
Not school for her, no…she went to teach!
Yup, last week she was hard at work in a school here in Baltimore, teaching kiddos the best way to approach and pet a dog. And of course, she taught kids how to love animals too 🙂
Humane education is a great way that many local rescue, advocacy groups and shelters help to spread love for pitbulls and dogs in general. It starts with the kids (especially those in areas where dogfighting has been a problem in the past) and hopefully lights a fire inside a little kid’s heart to teach them what wonderful creatures these animals are. So yes, despite the fact that it doesn’t quite look like it, Lovebug is actually doing something very huge here.
I didn’t get to go on this field trip because I also was working hard at my day job…. so photo’s courtesy of Lisa’s iphone 🙂 (thanks Lisa!)
Lovebug was accompanied by my good buddy Lisa at BARCS
Remember when I said we were taking a little break? Because of all this other stuff that was going on? Well, I accidentally came home with 5 felines, AND this here Love Bug.
Well, it wasn’t so simple, actually. I did a transport for MABB since BARCS was busting at the seams (as I mentioned last week). I scooped up Lovebug and dropped her off at the kennel till she could be placed (a few days later) in one of our fabulous foster homes. Well, Lovebug needed a re-check of her spay (all was fine), but wound up back at our place the next evening because we’re right by BARCS.
Well, this little Lovebug was stinky (no bath after her spay!), bloody (in-heat) and super snotty (lovely case of kennel cough), yet she swooned us all the same.
Brian helped me to remember our other commitments, and we agreed to give her up, for a short bit. She will return to us after our next trip, if she last’s! She’s a beauty and well, a Lovebug. So we’ll see 🙂
Hope everyone has a great week! I promise to only post about the kittens ONCE.
