In early December Grover went on a trial adoption but it didn't take long for his family to decided that he was a definite keeper and wasn't going anywhere. However getting together to actually sign the adoption papers took some time due to the holidays and the craptastic weather Ottawa has received as his family lives out of town, and highway driving hasn't been the safest.
So on Saturday we were finally able to meet up with Grover's new family and make it official -- Mr. Grover has found his forever home.
Not only was Grover officially adopted this weekend but he also received the presents from his Hopeful Hearts Secret Santa. In a perfect world this would have been under the tree for him on Christmas morning, so we'll call these Adoption Presents.
Grover's Secret Santa was the same family who adopted Felix in October 2012. Unfortunately Felix passed away a short time ago but that didn't stop these wonderful folks from going out of their way to ensure that Grover was spoiled and loved -- and that he was!
With another monkey adopted, Randie and I have made the decision to stop fostering. While it's been an incredible 3+ years and we've met so many amazing dogs (and people!) along the way, we're ready to step back and spend more quality time with Wookie and Halladay. We have a never ending list of things we want to work on with them and try, like enrolling Halladay into the St. John's ambulance therapy dog program and signing Wookie up for agility classes.
This wasn't an easy decision to make but with me working 12 hour days and Randie constantly on the go, free-time is at a premium. We hope to one day welcome another little foster monster into our home, but for now, this blog will no longer be updated. Thank you for following along with our adventures.
