The Things I Learned -- Mom's Post

I don't know why but I decided to let Mom do her own post today.
She promised not to embarrass me. So, off she goes....
Well, Scooter left yesterday morning to go to his new forever home. We are excited for him but I am sad. I fell in love with this little boy while he was here over the last week.
I would like to share several pictures of him with you so bare with me.

Things I Learned This Week.....
#1. Scooter is a very sweet boy.
# 2. Scooter is very handsome.
#3. Scooter has a great smile.

#4. Scooter is more of a puppy than we expected.
#5. Scooter is not ashamed of being himself.#6. Scooter is very good at giving "The L@@K".#7. Scooter looks great in color.
#8. Scooter looks great in black and white.
#9. Scooter even looks great in Sepia.
(Sorry I couldn't decide which one I liked best.)
The most important thing I learned this week is...
#10. Twix would get used to having a sibling even if she wasn't happy about it.
I know Twix will never tell you this but, the night before Scooter left she even played chase with him for about 30 seconds. It was very cute...they were both stalking each other and then took off running.
Unfortunately, we decided that Scooter was not the right dog for us. He would have required more time than we have to give currently due to him being younger than we originally thought. He is one of the sweetest doxies I have ever seen and I know he will have a great life with his new family.
Thanks for letting me go on about a pup that is not a part of our family anymore.
Also, I appreciate you letting me do my own post, Twix. Extra treats for you tonight!

Thanks for sharing Scooter with us. He is a handsome little guy and we are sure he will be quite happy in his forever home. You have a wonderful heart for taking care of him this past week.

Lots of treats,
Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

How gorgeous Scooter is! Sorry he wasn't the right dog for you. You are right about Twix getting used to having a sibling - well look at our two!
It just comes together with time. Well done for taking care of Scooter - whoever has him now is very lucky and we wish them all well.

Hi Twix and Twix's mommy,

I'm glad Scooter has found a good home. It makes us happy to hear you two got along in the end.

Wags & wiggles,

Hi Twixs Mom! I love all the pictures of Scooter! And Chloe will miss seeing pictures of him! I think she may have had a crush! But I am glad he found a forever home! :)

Twix, that extra treat thing sounds pretty good. You have to give in to them once in a while, after all they are only humans. I hope Scooter will have a good life now and I hope you are all doing ok without him. You are the king of the castle again!! We are thinking very good thoughts for Scooter.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

From OC's Mom to Twix's Mom: So sorry, I know how you feel as I am going through withdrawals from having a sweet foster dog, too. I know in my head that he wasn't right for us, but I fell in love with him anyway, and I pray that he was able to get a good forever home. If you've read the past few of our blogs, you know that he had to leave suddenly because he was full male and our girls came in, so he went to the ASPCA no-kill shelter. As it was, Dott snuck out with him, and I couldn't take a chance on OC (who was a couple weeks behind) because of her bad hips and back.

Your little scooter was SOOO cute! Before we got corgis, I've always had Doxie/Chihuahua mixes, and I love the look. We think BG has a Doxie nose (He is Doxie/Chihuahua/Corgi).

Scooter is really cute, I'm glad he and Twix were able to get a little play in. I can't imagine fostering a doggie and then having to let it go!

Great pictures of Scooter! (A sibling isn't so bad - at least you've got someone to blame things on!) And you've got him ready for his new family - great job, Twix! And make sure you get those extra treat!

Buster says Twix's little friend(?) Scooter was a real cool dude and could come by to play with him any day!!
Buster's Mum's name is Elizabeth Wix and when she was a teacher and it said "Miss Wix" on her door bad kids used to get a marker pen and turn WIX into TWIX. That is a candy in England.
Wags and love.

Hi Twix! I just found your blog through Bijou's and like it so much I am now following. Scooter was a cute little guy, and we are glad he found a furever home even though it wasn't with you. Hope you come visit me sometime.

So nice of Twix to hand over the keyboard:) Sounds like it was a very close call for Scooter having found his home right there. But the perfect one will come one day.

Woos, the OP Pack

Brownie said...

I'm so glad that Scooter has found a wonderful forever home. He looks like he was super happy being fostered by you!

Cole said...

Scooter is adorable! Maybe Twix will be a little more open to getting a sibling now. :-)

SEDONA said...

Hi Twix's mom,
You did a great thing being Scooter's foster mom and realizing he'd be happier in another family's home. He was lucky to meet you & Twix!
Your pal,


Hi Twix's Mommy,

Scooter is a very pretty dog. We had a Scooter in Droh that looked just like him. It is wonderful that you fostered him and now he has a good home. I hope you find the perfect dachsie because Twix needs a brother.
