Chance is Going to a Forever Home!

This weekend, Tom and I met Whitney and Mike, who want to adopt our foster dog, Chance the Weimaraner. We spent a great couple of hours together and knew they would be the perfect parents for Chance. They have a mini-dachshund named "Schatzi" whom they brought over, and whom got along well with Chance (and our three kids).  Chance got to show off how he runs in the backyard after tennis balls, and he went up and downstairs.

  The adoption is bittersweet because  we've grown to love Chance, but we know he'll be going to a great home, and we'll always keep in touch and have reunions. We're so happy that Whitney and Mike will give Chance another "chance" to live his senior years in true happiness.

 Here are some fun pictures of Chance that we took over the past week. From walks to cuddling with Franklin the Dachshund, to hanging out with Dolly, Franklin and Sprite. Chance smiles a lot now that he's regained his health. It's SO great to see his smile. :)  He loves chasing tennis balls in the backyard, and can walk up and down stairs now without fear. He's made an amazing recovery, and we're SO excited for him.

OUR THANKS - We're so thankful to DC Weimaraner Rescue,  Wolf Creek Weimaraner Rescue, The Prince George's County Animal Shelter and Whitney and Mike.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
