« Never doubt.... | Main | Pixie and Sophia update »
When I had my foster pug Maxie here I called her "Little One" because she was the sweetest most petite little pug with the daintiest of pug features. A face reminiscent in its gestures and mannerisms of Pugsley, King of the Sausages. She kind of reminded me of a mini version of him (sans the sausage body) with her perfectly shaped little onion head and vintage pug nose that protrudes more prominently off the face. I prefer this type of pug nose over the rosebud kind that's been bred down to be more flattened and pushed into the folds. The protruding kind makes them look more human or something.
The week I had the little one, I took her with me to visit a friend who is battling stage 4 cancer. She was very good at making him laugh and she succeeded at putting many smiles on his face that day. She even stood on her hind legs quietly at the side of his hospital bed gently nuzzling his hand. That's the day I started to feel kind of attached to the little one.
I've been waiting patiently to see where Maxie would end up. Waiting for that "feel good" moment when you see your little foster with their adoring new family and it just makes everything so worth it and right with the world again. That's exactly how I felt when I read the update from her new family!
I am happy to report Maxie was adopted by a wonderful family in Massachusetts, a young couple who lavish her with all the love and attention she needs and deserves. The little one is getting spoiled with lots of new toys and treats including peanut butter filled Kongs (her favorite from what I hear) trips to Petsmart, enjoying long walks at Bear park, planting herself on the couch at her new Daddy's feet, snuggling in the bed and lulling her new family to sleep at night to the tune of those delicious pug snores. They even got her a little sleep shirt to wear at night when her harness comes off :) Pug pajamas, I love it!
Hearing all this how could I be anything other than tickled for the little one? Especially after seeing firsthand the home that I took her out of and now the castle where she is treated like a queen!
Here's a picture of the little one in her happy new home..
