Curious Georgia

Oh, Georgia. We will never forget you.

Curious Georgia landed in our home just two and a half weeks before we put our life in a moving truck and headed to Austin, Texas. By all accounts, it was a crazy thing to do. But we had a plan — to save this sweet, shy, tender, face-sniffing girl from doggie death row, and then transition her to the home of our dear friend and fellow dog foster, Juliana.

We didn’t know much about Georgia when we took her in, but there was just something about her honey eyes and facial expression that said “Love me. Please.” that we couldn’t say no to. Although her body showed signs of a life lived outside in a small concrete run, it was no surprise to us when it turned out that Curious G is housebroken, quiet as a mouse, adores children, is a perfect lady on leash. After a few days, she even decided to run for office! We just had a feeling about G.

It took us a day or two to integrate her and our own Chick, but before he knew it, he fell in love and made her his official snuggle buddy.

And then — in a flash — she was adopted. We couldn’t have planned a more perfect ending to our DC-area fostering chapter. Curious Georgia went home just a couple of days before we moved away. She found home with a spectacular young couple — both artists — and their two kitty boys in Baltimore.

Curious G taught us a very powerful lesson about making a decision to help even if we don’t think we can do it alone. Georgia’s happy ending proved that those kinds of chances can save lives.

Georgia, even though you live in Maryland and we now live in Texas, you will always be on our minds.
