As some of you may or may not have heard, I met a cute boy two saturdays ago. His name is Charlie and he's a homeless hound with BellyRubs Basset Rescue, our local Tennessee basset rescue.

This morning my huminz have been in contact with his foster human and have subsequently submitted an application to adopt him! :D

There are a lot of hoops to jump thru and they're gonna' get us together again to make sure we really hit it off. Also everyone has to get their I's crossed and T's dotted (heehee) and make sure that the transition will be a smooth one--'specially since it's Christmastime and all--don't want anyone freaking out with all the festivities going on (they said we'll wait until it's all over with if need be first to be sure there's not too much external activity)...

Anyhoo, hopefully soon I'll get my Christmas wish and have a live-in boy furriend!!!! Please keep your paws crossed on accounta' my huminz LOVE LOVE LOVE him! Just to whet your whistles, here is a pic of my new loverboy:

Esther hope you get your new friend soon. Their are 3 of us and we have lots of fun together and cause a little bit of trouble once in a while. But the humanz don't know which of us to blame. Maggie, Daisy, Yogi

Congratulations and good luck. If my recent transition is anything to go by, MsEclair was miffed for 48 hrs annd extra clingy. Within 48 hours she couldnt give two hoots and was bonding with her new sister Ethel. They are constantly playing, sleeping and loving each other within a week.

Nothing like a rescue!

Just looked him up on Bellyrubs....2 years old and extremely mellow. Wish I lived near a rescue...closest one is over 200 miles away which means I don't qualify because they can't do a home visit. How lucky you are...

really?
Austin (ATB) came from a rescue about 250 miles away
the rescues linked up and they used one near us to do the home visit.

that said, there's always petfinder...

they're checking references now.
this could be bad. J/K

and "extremely mellow" is an understatement.
she human said, "Wow! He's like a stuffed animal!"

Barney'spal. Have you talked to the rescue. When I got my first foster they said it would be difficult for a home visit. I sent them pictures of the fenced yard, doggie door, references from our vet and talked to them by phone. In the end we got Daisy. Since then I have done a home visit for them that was only about 20 minutes away. LVBR just took in 9 Bassets over Thanksgiving so if your closest rescue is overloaded like that they may work with you.

No Dreamons..I went online and was going to fill out their application. This was where it said that you had to live in a 120 mile radius to apply. At that point, I pretty much gave up and went and got a beagle puppy. I hadn't realized that they might have someone closer who could do the visit for them...guess I should have checked into it better......which I'll do next time. Right now, my hands are full but when I'm ready again, will take your advice and see if that is an option. Thanks
