Carme and his “brother” Chip were surrendered to Newport Animal Control over a month ago. They had their heart worm test this morning, it was Negative, I was alerted, and I scooted right over to pick them up so we can begin the mandatory 2 week quarantine period before transport. Otherwise, they are both ready to travel.
I have been attaching long leads to Carme and Chip when I let them out of their kennel to play in the yard. This is partly to be sure I can get them back in their kennels. Playing “can’t catch me” with a young, spry dog is no longer my idea of fun.
Carme has been coming to me when I call him – usually, and it helps if I have a bribe ready for him: he is fond of my peanut butter cookies — so I’ve dispensed with the lead. If I let him out often enough Carme prefers to do his business in the yard, not in his “house”.
Chip and Carme’ left us last Friday (the 24th), riding along with Phoenix. They have landed in their foster home in New Hampshire. We knew Chip would be happy anywhere he could find a lap to snuggle into – and he did. Carme’ seems to be settling in nicely too. Happy tails, boys!
Carme’ and his “brother” Chip have been moved to a foster-to-adopt home. And they have BOYS! This is a standard process with ARNNE, to give a family the chance to try things out before committing to adoption. In most cases this will be their permanent home. Carme’ looks pretty happy to me!
