Goggles the Border Collie Puppy ~ Adopted

Goggles the Border Collie Puppy ~ Adopted
Isn't she pretty?

Goggles came to us with her sister Google from Hall County Animal Control in Georgia.  Vicki e-mailed  me Saturday morning and asked if I could possibly take two Border Collie puppies.  They were in a foster home with several other dogs and the foster was feeling overwhelmed.  The attached photos were poor at best.  When I called her, she assured me they were beautiful and very engaging pups.  She said they were going to an adoption event that day.  I told her that if they didn’t get adopted, I’d take them.  At 4:10pm she called to say they were hadn’t been adopted but that we only had until 5pm to contact the shelter to arrange rescue otherwise we’d have to wait until Tuesday due to the long weekend.  Of course, I hadn’t told Gisele any of this, so I had to do some real scrambling.  We made under the deadline and the puppies were safe.

Getting them down here proved simple since Courtney had previously told me she’d drive through on her way home and pick up any dogs we needed transported.  Let me pause her for a moment to point out that Courtney was driving from Charleston to Winter Park (near Orlando) and that there is no way Atlanta is on the way, but she did it!  Vicki and Courtney met up in a rain storm the evening of July 4th, then she drove through the night, arriving at my door at 3:45am.  God love that girl!

Goggles and Google have proven to be all that I could hope.  They are simply lovely.  I estimate that they were born in early March and are currently just under 20 pounds.  I gave Goggles her name because of the markings on her face.  I picture her leaning out a car window with goggles on her face!  Goggles is very athletic.  She loves to run and tackle the other puppies, rolling and wrestling with joy.  I tell her to act like a lady but she just grins!  She is also very people oriented, thrilled to have attention and love.  And when you throw a ball?  Oh my word!  Don’t stand in her way!  If I had to use one word to describe Goggles, it would have to be “enthusiastic!”  lol

You can see lots of photos Goggles in her photo album.  I am fostering her in Winter Park.

This is a beautiful pup!

July 8th Update:

Goggles has really settled in and proven to be a wonderful puppy! She is soooo affectionate and loving. And playful? Oh gosh! You should see her play with the other dogs. And guess what ~ she not only runs for a ball, she brings it right back so you can throw it again. It’s like she has been trained. Wow! Oh, and one more thing ~ she does just fine with my cats. This lovely girl will do great in any home!!!

Headed home with Frantz

July 14th Update:

Today, out of nowhere, Goggles was adopted. Not only adopted, but adopted by Frantz. You remember Frantz, don’t you? Last summer adopted my Dodge the Australian Cattle Dog. Then in the Spring he adopted Amy’s Scout. This morning he called to say he was ready for one more. Knowing that he lives on a 40 acre estate, I just had to agree! Goggle just adored him. She’s going to be so happy!
