A Happy Ending!
My foster dog, Weenie, went home to her forever home today. She was with me exactly 1 week and a day. Having spent the first 4-5 years of her life in a cage in a puppy mill she was adjusting quickly to kind humans and soft beds. The gentleman who adopted her came to my house today with his Dachshund, who was dressed in her best sweater, matching collar and dog tag. His wife died from ovarian cancer 3 months ago and they had, as he put it, always had "his and her" Dachshunds. His Doxie became ill in December and had to be put to sleep. He said that Sadie, his remaining Doxie, is extremely depressed and sad, but today she showed a little of her old self when she meet Weenie and me. She wagged her tail a bit and I even got a sloppy kiss. I think Weenie and Sadie are going to be wonderful companions for each other and for their "dad". A happy tail wag ending :)
