Wow

Nothing stays the same except change!

Today, See Sally went to  her new home with a former Silverwalk beagle, a blast from the past, Darby and his parents.  YESH, Sally and Darby.

Sally's foster mom asked about Monk, my beautiful, handsome feral Beagle mix who needs lots of slow, gentle socialization - more than I have been giving him at Silverwalk.  Monk has a foster home!  From the shadow of losing his spot in the Boothealers' program at Charleston has come the light of an experienced, kind foster home.

The home exchange of See Sally and Monk demonstrates a truth in rescue - when you adopt one dog, you save two: the one you adopted and the one who can now take her place.

Thanks to all - and by the way, Sadie Black & Tan Coonhound is hoping to join her "brother" Hoss next week in Monk's spot at Charleston.  Change happens!

It's amazing what good socialization will do. Monk will turn out just fine, I'm sure.

Thank you, Pamela. Monk is dear to my heart but before these last two weeks, I didn't realize I was "dear" to him as well :). I am sure you are right.
