Lollie: ADOPTED!

Lollie Wonderdog has been adopted!

This very evening, Miss Wonderdog will be picked up from our home by her very own perfect, wonderful, dream-come-true forever family. Not only do the kids want to share their lentils with her (a dream come true in itself for Lolita), but we can tell just by meeting and being around this foursome that they are going to love Lollie so well.

It has been a rollercoaster ride for me and Fosterdad and we will blog about it next week after we get control over our emotions again, but I can tell you already that we are feeling a lot of things at once — joy, sadness, exhilaration, satisfaction, anticipation . . .

For now, we just want to share with your our “family portraits” from our last evening with Miss Lollie — our beautiful, our ridiculous, our charming, our fabulous, our first, our unforgettable foster dog. I can’t tell which of these I love more. The one where the dogs are being so themselves, with Lollie launching a tongue attack while I’m not paying attention while Chick is being all perfect and stoic, or the one where Chick and I are posing for the camera and Fosterdad and Lollie are both, inexplicably, posing for something else– something out in space, apparently. You decide.

But in the meantime, let’s hear a nice round of applause for Miss Lollie Wonderdog, proud owner of a brand new home. And stay tuned next week for her forever family’s incredibly touching account of how they came to know Lollie, the big reveal of Lollie’s new name, and much, much more!

    Mazel Tov!

  2. YAY! I totally got all choked up reading this! So exciting to hear that Lollie has found her forever home! What a great ending – actually, beginning – to her story!

    I’m sure she’ll never forget you and what you guys did for her! πŸ™‚

  3. Wooohooooo!!! Yay for Lollie!!!! We know how confusing and exciting this time is for your family & want to thank you again for everything you have done for Ms. Lollie!

  4. Such wonderful news!!!! We are so excited Lollie has found her forever home, where we know she’ll be loved and spoiled. And, she gets all the lentils she wants! What more could a girl ask for!!!

  5. I have to admit that I am a huge sap, but I am completely teary eyed! I have been following Lollie’s story for a while now because I have my own little pitty bull that we rescued. They change your life! You are such an amazing person for doing this! Congratulations to Lollie!

  6. What wonderful news! Lollie seems to be quite an amazing little girl and she deserves a home of her own. You guys did a great job fostering her – congratulations!

  7. Happy, happy! Joy, joy! Good luck Miss Lollie. We know your new people will continue to give you the life you deserve!
    I can’t wait to hear all of the details.

  8. Oh congratulations to everyone! How wonderful for Lollie, though I will selfishly admit to missing hearing her adventures. I can see in Chick’s eyes he is too excited. Excited to have his parents back full time, his house back and his sanity back. But he knows something new is around the corner, because that’s the way it is. πŸ™‚

    You guys have done a great job. I do hope they Lollie’s new family keep her fan’s updated on her adventures.

  9. We are so excited! We have been reading about her for so long, we just knew that she would find the perfect family. I know it will be a hard transition, but good to know that she did find such a great home and that now you can have that space open to help save future dogs. I do love that first photo with her sticking her tongue out.

  10. Yeah! That’s amazing. I know what mixed emotions come when fosters find their forever homes. You have done such an amazing job sharing Lollie with the world and it’s evident how much you have loved her. What a great foster example for all of us!

  11. WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! I’m spinning round and round in circles and doing my happy waggly dance for Lollie. And my mom…well, my mom is getting all sniffly and leaky. But she says it’s cuz she’s so happy for Lollie and so grateful to all of you for helping her find her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was. Both are hearts are just filled up to the brim, for sure. We think you’re heroes!

    Good luck, Lollie! I know you’re going to have a pawfectly pawfect life!

    Double…no, TRIPLE…Wiggles & Wags,

  12. Tears of joy for all involved! I know you will miss her but what a joyous feeling that all of your work and devotion to finding miss Lollie paid off. Congratulations

  13. Well you have brought me to tears with this post, I’m SO VERY HAPPY for Lollie and Chick! LOL Your emotions are going to be all over the place as you at once miss her and feel great joy for her! You are so lucky though because she is close and you will see her again and again! You have done such a wonderful thing. I’ll thank you in words that Lollie can’t for your kindness……THANK YOU FOSTER MOMMA AND DADDY!!!

  14. I have tears in my eyes for both Lollie and you! How wonderful for her, but I can only imagine the emotions you are going through right now. I would say your first foray into fostering was a huge success! Thank you for being so selfless and saving a life. Lollie’s new home sounds just perfect for her.

  15. I would say your first foray into fostering is going to be a tough act to follow. I know whoever you get next is going to be great in her/his own way but Lollie is leaving some pretty big paw prints to fill!

  16. Oh Im so happy I wanna cry YEAH for her Yeah for you guys, and YEAH for her new family. This news just totally made my day πŸ™‚

  17. Well done! Thanks for keeping all of us up to date. It has been a pleasure to read about her and all of your beautiful descriptions.

  18. Tears as I read this….I can only imagine the roller coaster of emotions you are on. Can’t wait to hear about her new family so i can be truly happy for her…and a new name??

    What will this blog be now??

  19. We are over the moon in the land down under for Lollie!!!!!!!
    We can’t wait to read all about her new home, although we will certainly miss reading about Lollie’s escapades in her foster home.

  20. That second photo, coming after your description, made me laugh out loud, something I didn’t think was possible after such a long, long day. Congratulations to Miss Lollie, whoever she is to become, and kudos to you for welcoming her into your lives as her foster family.

  21. I found your blog from over at Two Pitties in the City. You guys are doing a wonderful thing. Congratulations on finding Lollie the Wonderdog a home! It’s so sweet it made me cry.

  22. Yeah, my mascara is running. Congratulations to all of you on a job well done. And give Chick a big hug. I’m sure it was hard for him to share you with Lollie but I know you must be very glad to have his company right now.

  23. Sorry I’m so slow catching up on the blogs I missed you somehow. I am so excited to see that Lollie finally found a family and congratulations to you for hanging in there with her this long. What a gift!
