Charlie is Coming Home!

To my home that is! Which will be his home as soon as he enters it Friday night! I am so stoked to have him!

I got the call today from the Adoption Specialist while I was on my lunch. She wanted to let me know that my application was approved and that I can come and get him Friday evening :) I am so happy, and I feel like Charlie will be very happy here too.


Monday evening I had spent another hour with him after Sheila's appointment (the Vet declared her healthy again!) and he was so cute and hyper when I first arrived, but then he just settled back onto my lap again, and snuggled for the rest of the visit. I felt bad waking him up when it was time to go, but I suppose the people who work there would want to make it home at some point and I couldn't just stay there forever.

Charlie did smell Sheila's carry bag, but I put her up high because she was already stressed out enough being in the Vet's office, I figured I'd let her try to relax a little. They can get a better sense of who each other is when they are both home.

So I have some supplies already... I was given a crate from a family that I babysit for, and I have a leash, treats, and some toys for him. Tomorrow I think I will go out and get him a food and water bowl, and some food to go with it (I suppose he will want to eat). Then I should be all set to welcome Charlie home!

Super excited! Can't wait until Friday night!!

Charlie is so stinking cute...can we make "possum" be his middle name? I almost spit my coffee out when i read that comment!

You guys are too funny! I'd offer you our excess little dog supplies, but I think Charlie is too small for Mugsy's stuff (M was 22 lbs), and I'm sure he doesn't want Gretchen's pink/PANK stuff!!
