Dog Rescue Weekend! Duncan Goes to a New Foster Home

Duncan
Remember "Doc" the light colored dachshund that we took out of the local county shelter when we were furloughed? Well, he stayed with Katie, one of the Coast to Coast Dachshund rescue coordinators for about 2 weeks and Katie renamed him "Duncan."   Duncan is a light-colored, tan, Dachshund.   As it turns out, Katie worked wonders with him.

Duncan was very shy with our kids and very skittish. He seemed afraid of people. We only had him for one night, so it wasn't easy to see all of his behaviors. Anyway, he wouldn't play with our kids.  Because we got Duncan when it was raining (for 2 days) he didn't like the rain, so he only went in the backyard. Katie found that he was good walking on a leash, and he finally started playing with her dachshund!  She sent us a short video below.
   On Saturday, Oct. 26, Duncan went to an adoption event with Katie, and Katie had to take in another foster, so Duncan had to go somewhere else. Fortunately, Tom's parents agreed to foster a dachshund (because they've known our kids so long), so we brought Duncan to them!
  Tom's mom and stepdad reported a good first night, where Duncan slept through the night, and had no accidents. His folks are the perfect foster parents. They walk three times a day, give love, treats and attention.

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.
