Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
Carly, our current foster, has somehow missed out on regular blog posts and I’m not sure why. She is a sweet and beautiful girl who has been with us for four weeks and quickly found a place in our hearts and on our laps. After trying to comb and cut the mats out of her fur, we admitted defeat and took her to be shaved down. While I was worried about what she would look like as a naked doodle, I must say I was pleasantly surprised when we picked her up. She is beautiful and looks more puppy-like. I don’t think the poor girl had ever been thoroughly brushed and when we arrived to pick her up the groomer showed us the fur she removed….in one piece because it was so matted. The groomer felt sorry for having to shave Carly and took the time to paint her toenails which Carly was proud to show off as soon as I saw her. (I think she’s working on becoming a diva already.)
Carly is full of energy and affection and absolutely loves to snuggle with her family. Usually, our fosters pick one person in the family to become attached to but she is an equal opportunity snuggler and feels everyone she meets is a friend and a potential treat-giver. Why else would people be coming to the house?
I’ve been reviewing all the applications for Carly and it breaks my heart that everyone who is interested in her doesn’t get the opportunity to share their life with Carly. She is truly a special girl with lots of personality, spunk and love. She’s going to keep one family laughing with her antics and warm them with her snuggles. My most important task is now at hand, as I meet a potential family this weekend and make my final decision, I know I will find the perfect special family for Carly. There are several candidates who will make a good family for her; I want to make sure she goes to the perfect family for her. And so my weekend will be spent with emotions high as I know her time with me will be drawing to a close.
Carly’s journey continues with new adventures around every corner with her forever family to share them with; I hope she remembers her time with us with a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face as we remember her antics and voracious appetite (both for life and food).
I’ll keep you updated on where Carly is headed…
