Other Island Fellah came to pick up Zuko today. And Lani's owners came to pick her up.
Other Island Fellah was really sweet as he tried to watch Zuko and learn about him. He commented that Zuko looks (suggested word...) Regal. And I agree. He has a leader quality about him; a confidence. His flight wasn't till later in the day so I dropped him off at a coffee shop with an outside table so he could get to know his new puppy in a comfortable place. His girlfriend kept checking in and was extremely jealous she couldn't make the trip. Other Island Fellah said he took some time off work to help Zuko get adjusted. That is just about the nicest thing I've ever heard. He's going to a good home.
People asked me if I would miss my pups, but I really don't. As long as they are being sent to good homes, and I am confident they are going to be taken care of, I am extremely happy to see them leave. You think 1 puppy is tough? Try 7! Plus two adult dogs! GAH.
For more space to view them, I brought all the pups to the porch to meet Zuko's new owner. They had apparently not gotten out all their poo/pee because they let it go like crazy for the first 10 minutes until finally ceasing, finally giving me and Roommate a break to sit and talk. It was a brand new location so I suppose they felt they needed to leave their mark. I used this display to give a bit of advice in regards to potty training. I couldn't help myself.
Other Island Fella even offered me a tip for helping him out with a ride and taking care of Zuko. I was shocked, but decided any thing helps with these little guys. They can cost a lot when being taken care of as well as I have taken care of them.
Leeloo seemed eager to send off Zuko so I let her out to say goodbye. I wondered how this would go. She simply smelled him in his new container, licked him, then looked up at his new owner and licked him in the face and pushed her body into him, then walked away. If that's not a blessing of approval, I don't know what is.
Lani's owners rescheduled and came later today to pick up their little one. They gave me their code to get onto their property on the opposite side of the island and the address to their local home so I could come see Lani any time! How awesome is that!? They also gave me a cash tip. This whole tip idea is new to me. I can't believe it. But I am grateful, so grateful, they appreciate my hard work in such this way. Leeloo sent Lani off in a similar manner, and off they went.
Here are the pics of them in their new homes...
