The good thing is that the rescue rep, me and both dogs are within 5 miles of each other, so if necessary i can go down, collect her from the fosterers, take her for a walk on her own or with Harrison, bring them here and spend time in the garden etc. If the worst comes to the worst, she is better to come here for rehoming as we could at least improve her, get some weight off her, get her fitter and give her more life experience and get her away from the packing up, the grief, the anxiety that she is living in. She has shades of Kim, when i took her and Harry away on their own, she came and sat on a park bench with me and was giving paws and playing, she liked me, I liked her, I just felt so bloody sorry for her. She is very shut down. We have a great garden, enclosed spaces, so she can get up her confidence solo or with him. I think i probably was just a bit too negative about her yesterday, having had an hour long chat with the rescue person who i know from dog training with Harry, they were not entirely happy with the home, but given how hard it is to find fosterers, the dog was being fed, walked, etc, but probably not given as much stimulation as a poodle needs as they are very intelligent and like to do stuff. So perhaps we might foster her at first with a view to adopting and see how she goes. We are at home 24.7 so we can do lots of little bits with her. Just hope she is ok with the cats. She is a big hair poodle, sadly that would all go as i don't groom, and keep them short and practical.
