Happy Ending 9-12-09
was a "good" day. Torie's forever mom, brother Digby
and grandma Judy drove all the way to NC from Washington, DC
to pick up their little princess. And I must say that she
looked every much the part. I groomed her this morning and boy
was she beautiful. I adored this girl from the day we met
and today as I groomed her and got her ready for her big day,
I couldn't have been any happier.
we spent the evening together doing a little shopping for her
new brother Digby. She wanted him to know how happy she
was to share his family. Everyone who met her thought she was
the cutest thing going and she was the perfect gal. One little
girl chased us all over the store before she asked if she
could pet my dog. I told her "why yes" and then
thanked her for asking. They didn't know what she was but
thought she was very cute and soft.
teared up a few times on the way home with tears of happiness
and also knowing that her spot would soon be empty and that I
would face the day without my sweet little Torie wiggling and
barking like she was really 90 lbs instead of 55.5. Torie
always let me know when it was dinner time just in case I
forgot. Torie came in April 2009 and was only here 5 mos but I
knew right away that she needed her forever home as quickly as
possible because she was ready, ready to love and ready to
make someone very happy.
I saw the perfect ending materialize right before my eyes and
I was happy for Torie and Sarah as these two girls are going
to be very happy together. I feel blessed to have been able to
give Torie a chance and feel even more blessed that Torie
forged a friendship between me and Sarah.
Sarah, Judy, and Digby arrived, Torie and I walked down to
open the gate for them and Sarah was standing there ready to
greet us and I think Sarah loved her the minute she saw her.
Digby and Torie are two peas in a pod - Torie is the female
version of Digby. Digby pokes around, Torie pokes around,
Digby is highly food motivated, Torie is highly food
motivated, and so forth.
is as delightful as Torie is sweet and the pics are just
incredible. After meeting Sarah's mom Judy, I can see where
Sarah gets her sweetness from. Judy was wonderful to meet and
her heart is absolutely huge. There is no mistaking where
Sarah gets her "big heart" from.
so happy knowing that Torie will be spoiled and adored
for the rest of her days. To think that it was only five
months ago that she was living in a dark barn and now look at
her - she is never going to be cold again or hungry. She is
never going to wish for more attention because there will
always be plenty.
heart is peaceful tonight because I know Torie is right where
she belongs and another happy ending came to be.
you Sarah for trusting me and allowing me to help find you and
Digby the perfect match. Torie is very lucky to get to share
her life with you and Digby is going to be a great brother.
thank you for making the long drive with Sarah and for staying
with her a few days to get everything situated. You are a
great mom - just like Sarah said.
