Rita's Momo '13 adopted!

Congratulations to Rita's Momo, who found her forever home with the Kessler family!

Momo '13 came in several months ago from Taiwan, a short, chubby girl with a big personality. She went to stay with Tom and his pack and quickly made herself at home. She enjoyed playing with foster brother Maestro, and Kazoo and Maestro taught her to swim. The Kesslers and their Border Collie mix, Roxy, decided they'd like to have some additional puppy love and came to us looking for a younger dog who could keep up with Roxy. With someone around most of the time and an active family, they looked like a good match for Momo. It took a little coordination with camp and travel schedules, but when the meeting was finally made they all adored Momo, who returned the love and decided she wanted to go home with them.

Momo thanks Rita and MJ for finding her and sending her to us. She was so happy to meet the Welcome Waggin' and kept looking at Tom to say "pick me, pick me" to take home to foster - she got her wish and has had a very wonderful stay at Chez Walas. She sends thanks to Joan and Ed and Lulu for making sure her new home was up to her standards, and she thanks the placement team and PA Lisamarie for finding her this wonderful family.

Welcome home Momo!

Rita's Connor adopted!

Congratulations to Rita's Connor, who found his forever home with the Morgan family and their Golden, Cha-Cha.

Connor is another expat from Taiwan who was looking for better opportunities and asked Rita and MJ if he could come to the US. Regular Wecome Waggineer Gary came out to meet Connor at the LAX when he arrived, and hosted him while Connor waited to find his forever family. This sweet boy had great manners and a charming personality, and really just wanted someone to love him.

The Morgans lost a Golden to cancer a year ago and they and Cha-Cha were missing having a second Golden in the family. Their trainer  recommended they contact us, and with doggy day care dates and someone around most of the time they looked like a great opportunity for Connor. They were excited when he came up as a match and quickly made arrangements for everyone to meet. The meeting went great and Cha-Cha and Connor immediately became great buds. His new name is Gaucho and the Morgans report that he is "an absolute Golden treasure!" He and Cha-Cha share a love for food and he gets her going on walks to stay in shape.

Connor thanks Rita and MJ for rescuing him and sending him to sunny CA. He thanks Gary for meeting him at the airport and giving him a great place to hang out while waiting for his forever home (and Marvin for being a gracious host as well). He's grateful to Joan and Ed for approving his new home, and the placement team and PA Eva for making a terrific match.

Welcome home Connor!
