Rita's Polo adopted!

Congratulations to Rita's Polo, who found his forever home with the Pellisier family.

Polo arrived from Taiwan with a few other pups on Halloween night. After getting vetted this senior guy went to stay with Tom and his crew, waiting for just the right home to come along. During his stay he enjoyed swimming with Kazoo, going to work with Tom and watching football from Tom's easy chair (relegating Tom and the other pups to the sofa.) His patient wait was rewarded this week, after the Pellisier family contacted us about adopting another dog. They had gotten Maggie's Bingo (now Hunter) from us last year and wanted to bring in a second pup. After reviewing their home visit report Polo said this was exactly what he was looking for - someone around most of the day, another pup to play with, kids to hang out with, lots of room to run around and a big pool to swim in - sounds like doggy nirvana, huh? The Pellisiers thought Polo sounded like a great fit for them and agreed to meet him - well, pretty much to just take him home as there wasn't much doubt he was going to become a member of their family. I talked to Kathy yesterday and Polo is having a blast with their son and Hunter. She thought it was so cute that he always has to have a ball or toy in his mouth. They are so happy for their new addition and have re-named him Bowler, because bowling is one of their favorite activities.

Polo would like to thank Rita and MJ for finding him, getting him healthy and sending him to the US. He thanks the Welcome Waggin' for meeting him after his long trip and getting him quickly out of his crate. He's grateful to Lisa D. who did the home visit on the Pellisier family, and he thanks Tom for taking such great care of him while he was waiting for the Pellisiers to find him. Finally, he's thankful for the placement team and PA Eva for finding him such a fantastic new home. Attached is a going hom photo as well as one of his new backyard.

Welcome home Polo!
