Rita's Chance adopted!

Rita’s Chance joined us after traveling to the U.S.A. from Taiwan. Today he was introduced to Cindy, Michael, and their corgi/terrier mix, Brody. It was love at first sight for everybody. Brody, though a smaller dog, apparently has been around big dogs his entire life, and doesn’t want to play with dogs his own size. He was jumping up on Chance, and chance started to accept Brody’s overtures for play. In fact, it was so cute, I ran for my video camera, but was too late. But that burst of play sealed the deal. Michael is looking forward to working with Chance to teach him all that a well behaved dog should know, and Chance seemed to be already bonded with Michael by time everyone was in the car. Michael rode home in the back seat with Chance and Brody.

Chance thanks Rita and her rescue group in Taiwan for taking him in, giving him much needed care and making arrangements for his safe passage to Los Angeles. He also thanks the Welcome Waggin’ for making his first moments in a strange country to be filled with love and compassion, and Mariko for letting him stay with her for a short time. He also thanks the West Wind Dog Walkers led by Julie; Sandy D. and Woody for doing the home visit, and Barbara D. for playing match maker.
