Oh, what fun Tigger has with the other dogs!  Kris just has to let her stay!  I had to really look hard to see her missing leg she was moving so fast!  This is just great.  Hey, and I think you will win, too.   Wink

Good luck, Bev.

I’m just devious enough to have us all launch an email campaign to Kris begging him to let Tigger stay…

Foster dog woes…

 Kris still maintains that four dogs are too many. I maintain that because Tigger is a tripod that technically she’s only 3/4 of a dog and therefore falls under the dog limit…   The rescue group we are fostering for has contacted Kris and told him that they are going to "focus" on finding Tigger a  forever home before she becomes a permanent fixture. I think after 6 weeks she is permanent…

It’s not going to be a good day if they take my lil Tigger tot away. I have become a protective mommy and don’t think anyone else can take care of her like I can…   Are they going to know that tripods have special needs and carry 60% of their weight on the front legs and shouldn’t jump up or down from heights and and and and…???

Grrrrr.  

P.S.

I’m thinking of running away with Tigger.

I think you’re a great Mommy too!

Is the rescue group trying to find a permanent home because your boyfriend isn’t all for adopting Tigger? I think your arguments for keeping Tigger are all great, it’s surprising that he hasn’t come around yet.

Hmmm, anyone else have suggestions that might help to change his mind?…..

That sounds like our home, my hubby wants only 3 (which is our limit in our city), and we have 5.

We had gotten down to 3, Calamity, Morgan & Trigger, when they announced the closing of the track. Munchie was in my kennel & totally in love with me. She actually had a group to go to in St. Louis and this group had a vested interest in her as they had placed her mom too. But Munchie ended up coming home with me. Hubby was ok with that as she quickly won him over!

Kade is another story. He is a nephew to Calamity & Morgan out of Kitty, their brood bitch sister. I had made a personal commitment to this entire litter that was racing at the track. When he was retired at the track closing I decided to bring him home to foster him. I wanted to make sure he got a great home. I also wanted a chance to place him with one of his 2 brothers I had already placed. Soooo, he is here as a "foster". My excuse for not sending him home yet is that he has not yet had his medical (still intact & no dental). With Calamity’s expenditures there was no extra money for him at the moment.

Needless to say, after all of this time, my hubby has come around & Kade is now a member of this family! He’ll be getting his medical this month as soon as my vet friend & I can find a day we can neuter him together (he’s crypted too – yuck!) and I’ll do his dental while he’s under. He had blood drawn this week to qualify him for the blood donor program too.

Kade is here to stay! And we have 5 greyhounds once again!

I hope you find a way to keep Tigger too!!! I can already hear the love you have for that little tripawd!

Pnerissa & Tigger,

I wish your boyfriend would look at the odds of Tigger finding a home who understands tripawds the way you do.  She doesn’t stand much of a chance of finding a permanent home and you are right there for her!  How can he not look at her and know that her chances of finding an excellent home are so slim for her.  He’s just gotta change his mind.  Yes, cuteness counts, and Tigger’s got to just start pouring it on!  Kiss    Wink   

Tigger just needs to be your dog; she just has to!

Love, Blazer, Kitty Kimber & Mom (Vicki)

No, the rescue group always tries to find the dogs homes pretty quick. I think particularly before they "wear out their welcome" in the foster home (we’ve had several that have eaten the blinds, wall paper, chewed the legs of antique furniture, chewed the window sill, etc.,).

Kris’s main arguements are a) he can’t walk 4 dogs at a time (he gets up waaaaay earlier than I do and walks the dogs) b) if we keep Tigger then he can’t take in anymore foster dogs and they’ll die.

Kris takes the dogs twice a day (sometimes 3 times a day) on two mile walks (the route is 2 miles, so sometimes the dogs get 6 miles in). Gets the dogs plenty tired and keeps them out of trouble.

Kris has said that Tigger doesn’t get adopted in a couple of months then she can stay, so I’m hoping that her "handicap" works against her in that respect. We all know she’s not handicapped at least. 😉

Just an update. So far my sabotage attempts to keep Tigger from getting adopted is going well. *evil grin* My precious baby will only let me put her harness on her for walks, and really only comes to me if called. *grins some more*  She's still learning many tricks, like a one-legged scratch at the door to be let in or out (even though we have a doggy door). Did I mention she's scary smart? Now she simply watches what the other dogs do, and she copies them.

Dear Pnerissa & Tigger,

You “go” girls!  You have no idea how much we really hope Tigger gets to stay at your home with you permanently.  We're keeping our paws crossed that it all works out for you in the end.

Love, Blazer, Kitty Kimber & Mom (Vicki)  Laugh

Grrrrrr.

The rescue group lady wants Tigger to come hang out at her shop for a little while for more exposure. I hope Tigger eats everything.

Tigger got up at 3 in the morning and emailed the rescue lady a list of demands (special needs list), and also told her that she was running away. Who knew that Tigger could type? Anyway, apparently the rescue lady was quite amused and has left her with me instead of taking her to the shop.

Let's see how amused the rescue lady is when she winds up on a slow boat to china courtesy of Tigger's plotting…

Hahahaha!  I knew Tigger had it in her!  No one believes me, but my dog types, too!  Yay!!!  Now, Tigger won't have to go to that “gnarly”  Yell  old shop with that rescue lady.  By the way, who's rescuing who here?  I think, Bev, that you are the one doing the rescuing!  Man, I'd love to see that lady's face when that slow boat (hopefully, a sampan) arrrives to send her to China.  You have a very smart dog there and you'd better hang on to Tigger.  Tell your boyfriend that “thousands” of us are rooting for you to keep her (thousands of what, I'm not sure, but thousands of carrots count, too, and they root!)   Wink

By the way, my email address is: vriss@comcast.net if you ever need to do any further plotting.  I promise to help in any way I can.

Love, Blazer, Kitty Kimber & Mom (Vicki)

Hey thanks for the Tigger update. We are hoppy to hear that she’s still with you! Hang in there, I’ll bet she’ll officially be yours soon. Keep up the plotting!
