Default Happy & Sad Day for us all

Jolly(ABR name), our first foster went to his forever home on Friday after being with us for only 2 1/2 weeks. He now has a Daddy a Mommy & a boxer-mastiff mix brother. We managed to keep it together in front of his adopters but on the ride home we had 2 crying kids in the backseat & 2 crying grown ups in the front. He is an amazing dog!!! We'll miss you Jolly (now Zeus)!!!! Your family is very lucky!

Excellent job Jill and family. Good for you. And it's ok to cry in front of the new adopters. I do it every time I let one go.

AF WX WIFE, They probably would have but I didn't ask. I was afraid to be pushy. Jolly was just our fist. I don't really know what's "acceptable" yet.

Jill, bittersweet, for sure. So glad your boy found a forever home so soon, but I'm sure you'll miss him! Get a new foster ASAP to fill the void!

I would of asked just to be updated. Maybe pictures a few times a year. The family we got Pheona from sends us text messages maybe 3-4 times a year just seeing how she was. Nice family but we still feel that she came from a puppy mill but can't prove anything. The family we got Murphy from asked to be kept up to date on her but I've heard nothing from her since I sent her a message letting her know about Murphy having demodex mange. I don't know if it's from embarrassment or what. It's not like I informed them out in public for everyone to see but instead I told them quietly. Maybe it's something they knew & just hoped for the best. I don't know. Either way, we have 2 beautiful babies that I would do anything for.
