This couple interested in adopting me had a hitch. They were a good match, but they didn’t want to come to my foster home to see me. They wanted me brought to them.

Foster Mom: A foster dog always shows better in his foster home where he’s comfortable and has a routine. But this couple insisted that Charlie Bear meet their resident dog on their turf. And I couldn’t agree more.

So here we go on a Saturday to the new peeps’ house. Foster mom carries me in her arms to the front door and holds me as we enter. The big dog on the floor sniffs me and then dashes off to get his blankie. Big sissy.

Foster Mom: We encouraged the two dogs to meet and greet by sniffing so we took Charlie outside and placed him on the ground.

The big dog was really big. Probably a good 80 lbs or more. Someone shouldn’t feed that guy so much. I liked the looks of the roomy yard, a great place to do my Indy 500 run.

Foster Mom: This couple were dog savvy, patient, and understanding. Charlie Bear sidled right up to the man.

It was love at first sight. Well, okay, the female peep was more interested in that big dog and making sure he was comfortable with me, but I could tell she thought I was cute. The male peep was easy. I had him wrapped around my paw in an instant. All I had to do was look at him and he melted like butter in a microwave. 

Foster Mom: It didn’t take long and they said those magic words: “We’d like to adopt him.” Hip, hip, hooray! I think Charlie Bear found his forever home!

P.S. LBA (Life Before Adoption) is now over. I want to thank my rescuer and foster mom for everything they did to help me to be adopted. This new home wasn’t real easy to adjust to, and I’ll share my tale of LAA (Life After Adoption) in upcoming posts. Suffice it to say that I still had my “issues.” Life was not all cake and ice cream (but if you give me some, I like chocolate and vanilla).

By the way, if you want to see all of my posts click on the Category to the right called Charlie Chat. They are all there starting back from #1.
