Hello And Goodbye To Juno

January 15, 2011

Remember Cody?

Remember Simon?

After those two I decided to take a little break from fostering.   Between fostering kids and fostering dogs we’ve had a pretty full house.  Chloe and I were going to kick back, focus on her class and enjoy ourselves. 

Until I saw this picture:

Reminds me of someone...can't put my finger on it...

How could I resist that face?  She could be Chloe’s sister!

She had just been taken into the rescue after being dumped at a shelter.

Of course I volunteered to foster her.  But first I made the rescue coordinator promise me that they wouldn’t let me adopt her.  I was afraid I’d fall in love!

And so Juno entered our home and stayed for a week. 

Mama, why dis dog got my sweater?

Chloe graciously shared her bed, her sweaters and her toys.

Hi. I Juno. You 'dopt me?

However, some things were off limits.

Juno, you get dis 'traight. Dis my chew. Pawses off.

How much am I in love with that little furrowed brow?

Happy puppies

At first I thought that she and Chloe looked quite a bit alike.  In fact, some friends and neighbors mistook Juno for Chloe.  After a week however they were very different dogs to me.  Chloe is a sturdy, energetic tom-boyish chihuahua / rat terrier mix (my best guess).  Juno is a delicate, timid dachshund / italian greyhound mix (again my best guess).  She was sweet and cuddly and as soon as she gets house broken I know she’ll make a wonderful pet for the girl who adopted her. 

In the meantime my kitchen floor is overdue for a major scrub-down.

With bleach.

PS Chloe’s vet thinks she has a histiocytoma, a benign tumor that generally goes away on it’s own.  We’re keeping an eye on it, but no cause for concern yet.

    How precious was that little cutie pie? Definitely see the dachshund in that baby. I’m glad she got a new home so quickly.

    Chloe certainly takes to new faces easily, and shares her things. What a good girl.

    Is her little bump itchy? It doesn’t seem to bother her at all. Which is great. I’ve heard most of these can be resolved without treatment.

    I wish the best for you both.

    Aw, what a sweet face!! She does look very much like Chloe. I’ll bet they had fun together.

    Our neighbor brought over his new 8 week old Chocolate Lab puppy. I swear I almost died from the cuteness!! I knew that all I had to do was say the word and the hubs would have gone and gotten one (there were ELEVEN puppies), but I held strong…and didn’t say the word. Oh but I wanted to!!! What is it about a sweet goggie face that can melt a heart like buttah????

    What an angel she is! I would have been sorely tempted to adopt her. My husband says our limit is two. Only two. No more than two. (it’s a litany, I won’t go on)

    I love their little sweaters! My girls don’t like their coats. Bet they change their mind, once they have to go for a walk in the snow!

    Oh thanks for the health update on Chloe! That is definitely a dachshund face. And ummm, the housebreaking problem? Maybe that is a dachshund issue too? Just saying…

    Juno is such a cutie patootie. OMG I would have a problem fostering. I would want to keep them all lol. Glad Chloe’s bump isn’t anything too serious 🙂

    Awwww…..I love dogs!!!! I would love to have one (full disclosure: that means “if someone ELSE did the morning walks”. I don’t do mornings….).

    And if Chloe were to comment on me she would say, “Brklyn friend bad. She needz to mail Mommy. Dis not okay”. I know Chloe, I know. 🙂

    Juno looks so sweet! It’s good of you to foster dogs and kids.
