|Maggie settles in.|
On Friday, Freddy helped transport an American Bulldog/Boxer mix and a terrier/mix to Tampa. Their ultimate destination was Naples. As previously mentioned, Mommy fell in love with the American Bulldog/Boxer. She was big, beautiful, sweet, confused, and lonely. Mommy cried when she gave her to the next transport driver. As usual, Freddy's glad to see them go.
On Saturday, Freddy had another doggie transport to the West Coast of Florida. Mommy checked on that beautiful American Bulldog/Boxer mix from the day before. The doggie didn't like the "cat house" she was placed in. She needed a doggie foster home. While Mommy can't take a big dog for a long period of time, she was happy to give the beautiful girl a good home to rest in. Freddy wasn't to keen on this idea.
|Maggie finally relaxes and sleeps.|
Mommy learned a few more things about Maggie on this trip -- Maggie had been dumped on the side of the road [which is why once she was in the car, she didn't want to get back out again]. And, Maggie had been in the euthanasia room when the rescue called to get her. Whew! So, this big, beautiful sweetie nearly lost her life because her "owner" didn't want her anymore. Mommy is confused by this...Maggie is a very sweet and gentle dog. She's been great with Daisy and the little dogs. She was also good with the many cats in the "cat house." And, she obviously had more than one litter of puppies. Hmmmmm.

Mommy can't wait for the kids to get up and see how Day 1 progresses. Daddy thinks Mommy is crazy for bringing a foster into the house. Mommy thinks that they need another Mini-Dachshund...another girl to increase Freddy's harem. For now, she needs to figure out how much you feed an American Bulldog/Boxer mix, probably as much as she wants!
