Updates on Ulee

Hey pups! Did you have a good weekend? We did! Mom had to go to Missouri for a funeral (sad) but Dad stayed home with us. We've had some really good news happen this weekend despite the sad circumstances of Mom's trip.

Good news #1:
I am getting along better with Ulee. I still don't really like her in my house, but she has started to participate in outside wrestle sessions with Steve and me. When she first came to our house, she was too afraid to play with us, but now when we wrestle, she runs around us and then joins in. So that's fun. She gets along the best with Steve, but I'm relaxing a little bit.

Good news #2:
Ulee has a pending adoption! Assuming everything goes according to the current plans, Ulee will become a California Girl in about two weeks. She will be going to live with a family who's former husky died in May. They saw Ulee on Dogster and contacted the rescue since they hadn't had any luck with the rescues in their area. The application was approved and they are traveling to Texas over Labor Day to pick Ulee up and take her to her new fur-ever home near Los Angeles. The rescue says that this is a great home for Ulee and she'll be an only dog with no cats. Also we're told she'll likely get to visit lots of cool places because her fur-ever home likes to take their husky on vacation with them. So we are really excited for Ulee. Mom is going to pass her Dogster page to her new family so hopefully we'll all be able to keep up with Ulee's adventures in her fur-ever home.

I'm going to end with a funny picture of us that Dad took this weekend. Yes, that's Steve standing on the grill. (And don't worry, he can't jump over the fence from there, it's several feet away.)

That is a serious ability to get on top of that grill like that! Wow!

We hope Ulee is happy in her new home - that's just terrific!

Lisa said...

Yay for Ulee!! That picture is too funny. Are you doggies waiting for rising water?

Amici said...

Whew, Steve isn't scared of heights I guess. :P Great pic.

We're super excited for Ulee. We hope the new home is a fantastic match.

We're sorry your Mom had to go to a funeral. We hope she is doing okay.

#1: Great news! #2 Great news! #3 That is the funniest picture I have EVER seen!! Woooo! It would only be funnier if someone was upside-down!

Good luck Ulee and please stay safe. I hope these furever people are checked out thoroughly! They must be good enough for Ulee! Dad's crazy about that stuff with bad stuff in the news!

Good luck and good job Ulee!

As for the grill and table...wowowowo!!

Love Rocky and Mati

Oh my dogness!!! Look at sweet Ulee looking all innocent in the chair like she is not a part of whatever Steve and Kat are doing. I have to admit, I really thought I was going to see Kat standing on the grill over Steve. What a great photo!!

Whoooohooo for Ulee!! How exciting fur her. We're glad you're getting along better with her, too, us girls can really squabble sometimes, (see new pics of Mik & me on our blog).
Great pic of the 3 of you, Cracker likes to jump on top of the washer when we're in the laundry room, so he can look out the window at all the squirrels in the yard taunting us.....did you know squirrels had middle fingers? They do!

That is quite talented! You too for being on top of the table! When I first came to live at my house I jumped on top of the hot tup cuz I saw a rawhide chew up there! Mom got a picture of me laying on it chewing.

I'm so happy for Ulee!! That is wonderful news. I'm sure you will be happy to have your house back to just you and Steve.
