A couple of weeks ago, I did something I rarely do, but when I do it, it’s for someone special. Often while working in a different town, I try to visit the local shelter and on this particular instance, I knew that there was a special dog in house. I had seen Margeaux when the Executive Director of this shelter had posted her on the page of a private group. She was special and the hope was that a friend or someone “in the biz” would adopt her. While I wasn’t in the market for a third dog, nor am I the intake person of our rescue, I couldn’t leave without her. We had an adoption event just a few days following and I figured she would be gone by the end of the weekend.
Here we are two and a half weeks later enjoying the company of a very special and happy house guest. While she could probably walk right under Julius, she only weighs about 10 pounds less than he and Ray. She is quite the little piggy and snorts like one as well. She’s never met a stranger and truly believes all humans are set on Earth just to adore her, with our family being no exception.
If you follow either me personally or the boys on Facebook, you’ll have seen my Margeaux in the morning posts and undoubtedly seen the numerous declarations that we should keep her. While it isn’t completely outside the realm of possibility it isn’t a done deal either. After two and a half weeks, she and Ray have still not met. They have seen each other but haven’t yet even taken a parallel walk. While this separation is happening, we have learned to gate and rotate like pros. Margeaux lives in the office behind a baby gate. At the end of that hallway is a folding divider gate. There is another wooden gate that we move to suit our needs and basically is just propped against whatever wall we need. Ray is usually behind that gate and in his x-pen which he uses as his crate or safe zone and he is becoming more and more curious to meet the little foster gal. I believe her family is out there waiting for her and I will definitely make sure she goes to the best home possible, so stay tuned to see more about Margeaux.
