Settling In.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

On October 26th, four weeks ago yesterday I drove with my Margie to Stamford Connecticut to meet and adopt DD Beth. I had lost my best boy, Billy the Kid, in July. I was and still am devastated. I saw DD on line and I knew I had to try and adopt her. DD is 13 and lost her home when one of her owners died and the other had to go into assisted living where dogs were not allowed. 

DD was unsure and sad as well. She had never been with more than one dog and here there are three. We are not perfect yet, probably never will be, but she is doing great.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Hello Mimi. I live in the Berkshires in Massachusetts and adopted DD from Stamford Connecticut: about 2 and 1/2 hours away. I knowthat the rescue person talked about sharing pictures of DD with her former owner, but I think it would be hard. TY    Sheila

Four weeks already! I'm glad you are all settling in, and wise enough not to expect or demand perfection.

With time Sheila, I bet they will be best friends, it just takes awhile to bond I think.

Hi Will. I hope they do bond. I think she is more bonded with Chico than the others and I am praying his biopsy isn't bad news. TY      Sheila

I'm glad she's doing well.  I can only imagine the loss her previous owner, who had to go into an assisted living situation, must be feeling.  I had a friend here who adopted a dog from a similar situation.  She sometimes sends pictures with little notes to the previous owner to let them know how the dog is doing.

Hi Myrl. I think it must be very hard all around. I know the rescue where I adopted DD was going to forward pictures to the man. I'm not sure if it would be be good or hurtful. TY      Sheila

OH my gosh, that FACE! DD Beth is so stinking cute, Sheila! I know that she is going through so much, losing both of her humans but, boy, she couldn't have found a better home. I am confident she'll fit in - dogs are pack animals and they will always 'care' about their pack whether we know they care or not!

Morning Kathy.

Those eyes tell me she's not fully adjusted yet, but I'm sure she'll fit right in.
