Fur Kids: New Home

We once had NINE Fur Kids running about Dog Woods but FIVE of them have since found Families of their Own.

With heavy and sad hearts the Dog Woods Pack especially their Momma Dobie-Anna, Doting Aunty Snoopy and TO DOG, I have let them go. I have to admit, it's not an easy thing to let go of Kids you've nurtured and love ...

If this TOP DOG had his way, I'd have all my Fur Kids with me. Dog Woods is big enough for every dog and human ... have an even bigger Dog Woods Pack (not that its already big enough ... but one could do with BIGGER!). But I suppose every dog or TOP DOG no matter how silly or sentimental would eventually come to terms with practicalities.

Nine Fur Kids and Five Dog Woods Pack would be a little too much to handle ... as it is, I have trouble walking without being swamped by barrage of overly affectionate licks and wriggles. I know my Fur Kids mean well ... but it sure gets a little irritating sometimes when they get into path (I've tripped on them more than once), food, fur and water. We have space, yes we do ... but why is it that we canines all insist on huddling up (i.e. fur in one's mouth, someone's paw up one's butt) in one tiny spot!

Coming to that decision of allowing my Fur Kids to be adopted was a hard one. The other very hard decision was WHICH Fur Kid ... ohhhh, believe you me, their Momma and I agonized for weeks!

Being a very concerned Dog Father I made sure I did a good long sniff on the prospective new families' background. To be doubly sure, I hired the K9-Bureau-of -Investigation (KBI) to dig into their backgrounds. Looks like the families who the Kids have gone too are clean, canine loving humans ... no matter how sad we are to see them leave, it's a comfort to know that they have found good homes.

The Fur Kids that have found themselves happy new homes are :-

a) Zsa Zsa and Pinto - the first pair to leave us ... they have been happily wrecking havoc in their new doting family's manicured gardens (me glads to note they too have the Dog Woods landscaper's gene...)

b) Baxter (left) Dexter's twin - who's the only 'child' of his new family who spoils him rotten

c) Eva - who now have two furry Labrador brothers in her new family and apparently has worked her paw up to being TOP DOG

d) Buddy - who's now have 3 human brothers and has more fun than he has ever imagined!

Good luck kids! Don't forget to remember us at Dog Woods sometimes. I know we think of you all all the time!


  1. Awww it would be hard to see them go. I hope all goes really well for them and they love their new forever homes.
