Foster dog update: Minnie

Establishing the bond between a dog and owner isn’t always easy.

Sometimes a new person and new dog just don’t gel — or get time enough to find their rhythm. We found that out the first time we sent Charlie Machete home with a new family.

Our Waldo Bungie shared a great series about the challenges for foster dogs transitioning into a new home this week. Check it out here.

While we’re on the topic, I’m happy to report that longtime Wayward House resident Minnie is doing great at her new home.

Because she’s such a sweet and easy dog, we knew Minnie and her new mistress Holly would bond quickly, and we were right.

Could you stop Facebooking and pet me, please?

It didn’t take long for the old girl to start demanding pets from her new mistress.

There was a short adjustment period, when Holly says Minnie didn’t have a huge appetite.

But she ate when she got hungry enough, and now she’s happy as a dog can be.

In fact, she’s even finding time to contemplate getting spiritual.

Put Minnie down as a maybe.

Holly promises more updates about Minnie soon, and I will be sure to share them.

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.
