Rex's New Family

Hi Puppies, Magnum here again. Do not worry, I will not let Blue post too often. Listening to him makes me tired. This week we had a pretty quiet week at home, but Mama and Papa helped a couple puppies get to their new homes. Rex, who has gotten through heartworm treatment over the summer, made it out to the Hike N Howl just in time to meet his new family. Rex liked his foster home and was a little frightened when Mama picked him up and took him away from the family he had gotten to know. Blue gave him some lessons in meditation, but Rex was not getting the hang of it.After a quick stop at the vet and a layover at our house, Rex went to his forever home. His new mom and dad were so excited to have the chance to give Rex the love and attention he deserves, but Rex was scared and confused about why he was there instead of with his foster family. His new mom put the blanket from his foster home in his new crate so it would smell familiar. Rex settled right into his crate, enjoyed his new window, and would not come out even for a family photo.
Not to worry, Puppies, Rex's first night had a bit of a rough start, but his new parents took him for a walk around the neighborhood and then let him relax on his own terms. Soon enough he came out of the crate and joined them. A few days later Papa called to find out how everything was going, and Rex's new dad said Rex began to open up to them after just a few hours. He loves car rides, so he gets plenty of them, and enjoys meeting his new neighbors while out for walks. We are so happy he will have the opportunity to grow into a more confident, out-going dog.

Oh another happy ending! We love those! Mom said Rex's new Mom really fell in love with him at the Hike and after running it by us (we are the experts after all!), we agreed it was the right home. She's lucky to have our professional guidance.

Wow, that was a story that tugged at mommy's heart. She was sitting here imaging Misty doing all of that hard adjusting too. Thanks for loaning out your mom and dad to help her get adopted too. Misty's more easygoing, so we're sure she's fine. Rex gained some weight! He looks great.

Awww, contragulations to Rex! We got the chance to meet him briefly at the Hike n Howl. He was shy, so I didn't get too close to him, but my mom and dad petted him a little. They said he is a very handsome guy. I'm glad he is warming up to his new family and is in good health!

That is so way awesome!!! We saw Rex at the Hike n Howl too but didn't get to play with him either. Our mommy and daddy agreed with us, he is a handsome fella. We're so glad to hear Rex found his fur-ever home. An we're so glad to hear he is settling into his new home!
