Our fabulous volunteer Kate W. from Missoula adopted blind Luke this weekend. I took the photo just before Kate took him home on Saturday. This morning Kate emailed to say Luke was doing just great, and she added, "He's such a love .... Boy, does he cuddle. He likes to be right up close and personal with you!"
Yesterday she took Luke around her yard a few times on a leash to help him make a "mental map" of his new environment, and then she turned him loose. Kate wrote that "he's confident enough to just walk around and explore." So far, no accidents in the house, and he lets Kate know when he needs to go outside. Today Kate took him for a walk in Greenough Park in Missoula, and Luke loved getting out and about. He did really well on a leash.
Tonight, when I called Kate to see how the day went, she said Luke was lying next to her, resting one paw on her while she talked on the phone. He seems to have settled in just fine, I'd say!
Thank you, Kate, for adopting this special boy!
