I wasn't sure Roman would work as a city dog living in an apartment. He lived to play and chased balls till he dropped. But Boris and Sofya were young and active...and they fell hard for Roman's charms.
Of course I understood those charms, too. I'd found this yougster at Jefferson County Animal Control. He turned out to be gentle, friendly and packed with energy. He loved people of all ages. I even took him once to visit an elementary school class. They loved him and he couldn't stop giving kisses.
But would he work in a Chicago apartment? I recently received pictures and a note saying he's doing great in the Chicago apartment and enjoying long walks through the city. "He's made friends with lots of dogs and people in the neighborhood and seems very content." And in this picture, he certaily does look happy. And his name is now Nelson.
Another recent adoption was Peony, a havanese recently retired from the breeding life. Peony is now Delilah and the Sauer family report that she is "the perfect dog for us. The girls love her, and she sleeps with our two oldest girls every night." Here's her latest picture.
Walter is a Pekingese who needs daily eye drops for dry eye. That made him a special needs dog. We accepted him from a shelter that believed they couldn't place him because of his eyes. But Walter found a good home this week and Colleen emailed the following.
"He is doing great! He has already met my sister's and mom's dogs as well as the neighbor dogs and loves them all. Anytime he gets to run in the backyard he is a happy camper." Walter has also made a special friend -- Coleen's daughter.
"He rides along to take her to school and everytime she gets out of the car, he starts wimpering
and looking out the window wondering where she's going....it's really cute! She
carries him around like a baby and he just lays there so relaxed." Here they are:
