Bye Ulee!

Yesterday Ulee left to go to her fur-ever home. It was a happy/sad event. Mom and Dad took all three of us on a really long walk in the morning so that Ulee would be sleepy for at least some of her car ride yesterday. It's hard to believe that we'll never see her zig-zag walking style again. (She liked to run back and forth across the path that we were walking, smelling things.) On the other hand, she's going to be very happy with her new family.

We packed a suitcase for Ulee. We had Mom write her name on it and then write things like "California Bound" and "California or Bust". Then we picked out dog stickers to put on it too. I wanted a lot of bone stickers and Kat picked out one that said "Fetch!" since Ulee does that sometimes. Here's a picture of her suitcase.
I bet you're wondering what we put in the suitcase. Well, we put a bag of Canidae in it. Then we put a bag of Canidae Snap Biscuits. We also picked out some of our toys that Ulee decided were her favorites like the blue star stuffie. Mom had bought Ulee her very own Kong and Nylabone, so we packed those too. She also took her Lupine collar and leash that we bought her since she was chewing on her original leash and Lupine has a guarantee even if she chews it. We picked out a really stylish collar and leash (the Tropicana pattern) that looked fitting of a future beach girl. Here's Ulee showing it off. Here's a picture of the suitcase contents.Mom doesn't have any pictures of Ulee actually leaving. Her new family was taking lots of pictures so Mom didn't. Mom thought it was really cute because when they got to our house yesterday, Mom opened the door and was holding Ulee's leash and Ulee stood in the doorway looking really happily at her new family and they took a super cute picture of her. Mom thinks Ulee just understood that they were the perfect family for her.

Kat mentioned that Ulee's family brought us some treats. We took a picture of them. They gave us two boxes of Organix dog cookies, one peanut butter and one chicken flavor. We've tried the peanut butter and they are delicious. They also gave us a package of Zuke's Edible Dental Chew Bones. We have sampled those a couple times and they are really good. We know that Ulee's family was reading the blog before they adopted Ulee, so if they are still reading, we want to say a big THANK YOU!!! The treats are awesome! Well, that's our report for today. I hope everyone has a good holiday today! If we get some pictures of Ulee on the beach, we'll share them.

Woos to all!

That was SO KHool of you two to do that for Ulee! It was also super KHool for her FURever family to bring you treats too!

I do think that you will have to give some EXTRA wuv to your hu-mom and hu-dad - having to let Ulee go was hard for them SO go fuzz up TEXAS style - don't the silly bi-peds say something about everything being bigger in Texas?

Wags and Wuv,

P.S. Steve - I think you need to give K(h)at some extra woos and play too - she might pretend NOT to miss Ulee but she does!

KHongrats to all! It is a special thing to do what you did!

Congratulations! I hope things there aren't as gloomy as they are here. We are all very sad to have lost Magoo. I'm so happy Ulee gets to be a beach girl!

Oh we're so happy that Ulee found a great home! It was very nice of your Mom and Dad to pack her a nice suitcase. If we can find her new house on a map maybe we can all go visit her! That might be a good job for the AO4. I'll bet Stormy is a great navigator. So when's the next foster guest coming??
