I first shared Mickey back in September, when he became a part of One Tail at a Time. I fell for him because he was a sweet old pup and I love a good senior dog. I begged my dad to let him be a new pal for Frasier, but as it turned out, Mickey just needed a hospice home to live out his last few months. And I’m so grateful he was able to do that, instead of ending his life in a shelter. But today sweet Mickey has passed on. Sending my love to you, sweet pup.

Like I mentioned on Sunday, we unfortunately had to stop fostering Paige last Friday; it was devastating to comes to terms with, especially since we had both already become so attached to her. We were counting on adopting her, buying her a new bed with matching food and water bowls, and lots of new treats. And I was already planning summer outings with her and Frasier, hosting doggie birthday parties and including her in Christmas cards.
She is such a sweet pup that she quickly became a fixed part of Apartment 310: sounding off her alert bark in the mornings that meant it was time to wake up, nosing you in the face when you tried to hit the snooze button, waiting for you at the top of the steps on your way back in from outside, giving you real doggie hugs (seriously, her paws latched on to your waist!), snuggling next to you on the couch and watching her ears fly back as she looked so happy darting across the park. I hope you find a happy home, Paige! We miss you.
This was a weekend of Paige. She accompanied me on all my outings on Saturday and braved the crowds with me on Sunday to watch Josh at the Shamrock Shuffle. She was about as well-behaved as they come (sorry, Fray). Keep your fingers crossed that this is the real Paige and she’s not just on her best behavior while she gets to know us. She is such a sweet pup.
