Sorry about the lack of blog posts lately. I kind of had the wind knocked out of me on the weekend when our foster dog Malcolm was adopted and swept off to New Brunswick on Sunday. I totally wasn’t ready for him to leave – but at least I had time to bake him a batch of going away cookies, even if it was 2:00 in the morning! I miss him so much, but I know he’s going to have a great life in a loving home with kids & other dogs to play with.
Do you remember Malcolm’s sad & dejected shelter picture? Well, he’s come a long way since then! Oh yeah, that’s Malcolm getting all gangster on the sofa! A far cry from the poor skinny pup whose sad picture broke my heart…
Hard to believe that’s the same dog! We knew it would take some time to help Malcolm gain confidence and to put some weight on. But he really surprised us with how quickly he came out of his shell and blossomed into a happy, loving, playful boy. It’s amazing how a dog’s heart can forgive and love humans, even after being mistreated and abandoned.
In honour of Malcolm, here are some rooms that remind me of Malcolm’s beautiful brown & black brindle coat and soulful orangey-brown eyes…

So happy you’ve found your furever home, sweet Malcolm. The paw print you left on my heart will stay with me forever…
