Adoption event

On the weekend, there was an open house/adoption event and since I wasn't working, I was able to take Twiggy, our foster puppy. 

In addition to the dogs available for adoption and the dogs visiting, there was a visiting pot bellied pig.  She was very friendly and happily accepted ice cubes from everyone.  Twiggy initially seemed a bit puzzled by her, she's not a dog, not a cat...what is that?

All the dogs were interested in the duck game, which was a game for humans, not dogs. I was surprised that none of the dogs actually went in the pool.  They did enjoy drinking the water and nosing at the ducks.

At home, Twiggy will put her front feet in the pool but not go all the way in.  I was just waiting for her to grab a duck, but she was a good girl and left them alone.

There were a few people who met Twiggy and she enjoyed the attention, of course!  

She will attend future adoption events and I know she will be an awesome addition to someone's home.   


  1. Twiggy is a beautiful girl. I hope she gets adopted soon. :) Although I'm sure in a way you will be sad to see her go.

    Thank you so much for your comment on our blog. It really made my day. Just keep doing what you are doing as far as blogging. We friended you today, my apologies, I thought I'd done that already. :) We hope to see more of you.

  2. Wow, I'm surprised Twiggy didn't get adopted. It's kind of a bittersweet outcome though, since you now get to spend more time with her! I'm sure she'll get adopted in no time :)

  3. Looks like it was a fun day out, even if Twiggy didn't find her forever family. We love that piggy.

  4. It does sound like lots of fun. I hope that Twiggy finds her home soon. She's so lucky to have you for now!

  5. Here's hoping you get the furever home soon Twiggy! You'll make some humans sooo happy!!

  6. Twiggy - I've got my paws crossed that you'll find your forever home really soon buddy and I just tweeted you, cos you never know who might see it :)

    Big wags,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  7. It's great that Twiggy is being exposed to so many different situations, people, and animals during her time with you (and doing fine with it all). That should make her all the more adoptable! The right person will come along eventually.

  8. I can never figure out how some dogs get adopted and others don't.
