I forgot to add that we did go down and pick up another rescue bitch. A beautiful, tiny, tiny Silver Grizzle Bitch named Shahryah. No, not to keep, we were just relaying her to her new foster home. Shahryah has the most beautiful, exotic eyes. She was also very, very sweet. I had thought there would be this great reunion between her and Atireh. We had been told that Atireh & Shahryah were very close with one another.
Well.....not quite what I expected. They sniffed each other and then went about their business. There was no sense of recongnition at all, although later they did curl up with one another on the sofa. You can see the photos here. My daughter was becoming very attached to Shahryah, and when I came in from church the next day, there was my husband sitting on the sofa with Shahryah on his lap. The first words out of his mouth were "I'm keeping this dog!"
I gently explained why we couldn't do that. And later that day we did deliver her to her new foster parents. It was hard to give her up. But she's doing beautifully at her new home and may soon be ready for adoption.
