You may remember that D.Jones and I had been fostering for a local animal rescue. We first had a beauty of a German Shepherd, but she was only with us a few weeks. Next, we fostered a lovely but very scared dog named Betty Boop. I couldn’t bring myself to call her that, so we’ve shortened her name to “Betsy”.
She is skittish, but has a sweet-as-pie temperament. After a few days with her, I knew I just couldn’t let her go. When I got a call that someone wanted to come meet her and possibly adopt her, I panicked.
It didn’t take too much begging for D.Jones to agree to it, and we officially adopted her last Friday. She’s making a fantastic addition to our family. She gets along great with Lola…puts up with Cooper, and ignores Mica (the cat). She sleeps quietly through the night next to my side of the bed, and when the boys aren’t around and she knows it’s safe, she follows me from room to room looking for affection.
Welcome to the fam, Betsy!
