Well, today was Tessa’s adoption day. Mid-afternoon, a slightly elderly man (let’s call him John, since that’s his name ) and his son (we’ll call him John too…same reason) came over for the older John to meet and adopt Tessa. Barbara had done a very careful pre-screen of this gentleman and we’d agreed that this could also be a first-date adoption.
Tessa was a delight, just running around everywhere, not frightened of the strangers, but not being obnoxious, either. Dakota was downstairs with us in case Tessa started getting anxious (having another dog around can be a calming influence on a nervous puppy). We had a very nice time visiting with the two Johns and the paperwork went smoothly. Barbara put Tessa’s microchip in her and that good little girl hardly even noticed the needle.
Before they took off, we brought Shadow down for them to meet. She, too, was a very good girl. She played with Tessa some and met the two men without a problem, then just sat next either Barbara or me for the rest of the time. (And she’s learning to do the stairs, too!)
We got adoption pictures, but I’m too lazy to walk into the kitchen and get the camera right now. I’ll do that later tonight or some time tomorrow and update this post with a pic of the happy family.
