Autumn is Back

Autumn is back--no, not the season, the dog :) My former greyhound foster, Autumn (formerly Rico's Wanda) is back and this time she is here to stay. Yes, I know. I'm crazy, BUT Autumn is an awesome dog. She is so easy. She acts like she never left. I have fostered her twice and I said if she ever "bounced" again, I was adopting her. No ifs and or buts. I knew in my gut that she would come back to me one day. I just didn't know when.

She and my other dogs get along great. She remembers where everything is and all of the household routines.

Within a short period of time after arriving at my house, she was getting toys out and roaching in a dog bed. I know she'll miss her former family and they her. But they made a selfless decision in rehoming her with me. She just wasn't happy being an only dog in an apartment.

Autumn was a pretty good racer in her day and so, was used to be pretty active. Now she has plenty of dog buddies to hang with, room to run and play, and she will have plenty of activities to do. She's a great Meet & Greet dog. Plus, I plan to test her for pet therapy. I'll also let her try some different activities to see if there's a dog sport she would like to participate in.
And heaven help me. This is the last dog I can adopt at this time in my life. My heart and house are full.

Looks like I need to update my blog banner and get a new group photo :)
