Of course my cute little muppet puppy got adopted right away. He was so cute. I could have kept him forever. He was just like a live stuffed animal. So cuddly. I hope he has a very happy life.
The 4 puppies are almost 8 weeks old and their first advertisement went out today. We have been getting a lot of calls and I realised that I am not prepared for this part. With other dogs, people see a dog's picture and want to meet that one dog. I can arrange to meet them on the weekend or at an adoption event. With little puppies, people want to see ALL of the puppies so they can pick the one they like the best. They can't come to my house because, well, it is not set up for visitors. I have other dogs, one which doesn't like strangers and it is impossible to get this place looking nice enough for people I don't know. Then there is the fact that I live way out of town and often times the people who call live in the opposite direction.
So, tomorrow I am going to take all of the puppies and drop them off with my puppy nanny who is going to keep them at her work until another friend takes them across town so that someone can pick out a puppy. Whew. That's a lot of logistics just to get puppies adopted. Then she will bring the puppies back to me after work. To make things more complicated, there are holidays in there too so coordinating schedules is really difficult. Plus there are the many phone calls that I am not supposed to be answering at work. Too bad I can't make a living with dog rescue. I'll just have to keep trying to balance work and dogs and hope things turn out well.
