It’s hard to believe it took so long — eight months to be exact — but someone else finally fell in love with this face:
A couple of weeks ago, our foster dog Charlie Machete moved to Iowa to live with a family who recently lost a beloved rescue dog who looked very much like him. Because we’ve gotten excited in the past about adoptions that didn’t work out, I decided to wait to announce this happy news until everyone had time to adjust.
So far, so good! According to my latest update from Machete’s new dad, our old boy has overcome his initial homesickness and is living up to his reputation as a bed hog and beggar.
We are ecstatic that (thanks to Craigslist) Machete finally found his place with people who believe he’s as smart, handsome and awesome as we do — in spite of the fact that he is really good at tearing stuff up.
To be honest, life at our house is a lot less stressful since Machete moved out.
But that didn’t stop me from bursting into tears at the first doggy feeding time without him.
I will never forget that crazy, cuddly, ridiculous dog. And I’m so happy I had Magnet Lady Kathleen Henn make this magnet of him, which I pause to stare at several times a day.
Thanks to everyone who supported our adventure with Machete and the long search for his forever family. I’m so glad he got a happy ending.
