Leica's Happy Tails

This post is seriously overdue, but good news is good news! Leica is now my second foster dog to have successfully found her new kingdom (or should I say "queendom"?) and I couldn't be happier for this little goblin! 

About a month ago, Leica and I started being in touch with an amazing family that was interested in adopting her. I was hoping this would work out as Leica was in love with them and I was convinced she would do very well there.

What to Feed a Picky Dog?

Since Leica has been staying with us, everything has been going uphill for her and I'm so proud of this little one! She now occasionally runs on walks, plays even more and despite her health issues that we are working on, she has been all smiles.

Winnie's Happy Tails

It finally happened! My sweet foster Pooh Bear found his furever home at last. 

On the way to drop him off, I felt like I was betraying him. There he was, following me like he always used to do. At the usual corner that we take to head back home, he stopped and tried to take his usual route. Instead, we continued walking to where my car was parked. He looked confused but went on to walk behind me.

Crazy Dog Lady

Although I used to live with 7 chihuahuas and 5 cocker spaniels back in Switzerland (and chickens… and tortoises… and guinea pigs… and… ok I should stop), I find that living with 3 dogs at the moment is still a struggle.

My mom’s chihuahua Daisy is currently staying with us and I swear I could make 3 more chihuahuas out of all the fur she’s losing in my apartment.
