Well, that didn't take long. Just six months after arriving here from Louisiana, Scamp was adopted on Saturday by a wonderful family from Nashua, New Hampshire. Holding Scamp in the photo is Charlotte S., with her husband Len on the right and her daughter Barbara on the left. Charlotte and Len's dog Max, an Aussie, is on the ramp behind them.
On Saturday afternoon, they met both Scamp and Billy, and at one point Alayne and I thought both dogs might be going off to a new home! It was a close decision, but in the end they -- and we -- thought Scamp was the best choice for them.
Last night, after they returned home with Scamp, Charlotte emailed me to say, "Thank you for helping us find our perfect match with Scamp. The trip home was a breeze and Scamp is settling in so very well at home. He has even showed us some of the great dog rolls he is known for." (Once a rolling dog, always a rolling dog.)
She also sent this photo, which I think says it all:
Charlotte and Len, thank you so much for giving Scamp such a loving family to call his own!
Update on Darla: We've been on a rollercoaster with Darla since that last blog post. After a couple of days of normal pressures in her eyes following the cessation of the glaucoma meds, her pressures spiked. We have been in touch with the ophthalmologist daily. We resumed the glaucoma drops, and her pressures returned to normal. Her eyes no longer bleed, fortunately, but it's clear the meds are making them uncomfortable, and we don't know why. Darla will be seeing the ophthalmologist later this week and hopefully we can get more answers then.
