So yep, Rex is with ME and the Gang!!! :HistericalSmiley:

I left around 8:30 this morning to pick up little Rex in Los Angeles.

All went well, and it was lovely to see my friend, Bronwyne again.
Rex is an absolute doll. What a cutie. What a good boy.
The ride home took about an hour, and not a peep out of him. He just kicked back and enjoyed the ride.

I went to Alice's house, and her MIL (who lives with them) appeared mad. I felt something was not right. I kept an eye on her, and she clearly did not want Rex around. I did not feel right about leaving him there, as this is the woman who would be with him during the day. She actually shoved him away from her. Alice is very upset, but it is what it is, and she does understand. There's a bit more to it, but that's the bulk of it.

So on a happier note. Bronwyne brought my former foster, DJ, with her!!!!
He was blind while with me, had surgery, so could now see me!! :chili:
I so had tears in my eyes seeing him again. I love him.

So here's Rex, Deb, and Little DJ

Deb, I'm sad for your co-worker, but so happy that Rex had you with him to see what he would have had to live with. That could have been a disaster for sure!

Praying that Rex finds his furever home and also saying a little prayer for your co-worker and her mil.

Oh Deb - sorry that it didn't work out for Rex but how wonderful to have a guardian like you to know he should not have been there. I shudder to think if he was placed there.:huh: And how great to see DJ/Sol there. That little guy captured my heart before and I love seeing him again. Thanks for sharing and I'm praying that Dex gets the home he should be in.:wub:

ahhh, man.....what a bummer....mostly for Alice. What ever the problem, I hope little Rex gets a great new home soon. He sounds pretty near perfect...someone's got to be out there looking for him.

Ah, sorry it didn't work out. Living in a hostel enviroment isn't the best thing for Rex. Rex will find his forever home soon.

Poor lil Rex...well, maybe not. He gets to spend time with you, Deb. I'm sure his forever home is out there
and will find you.

Deb, I'm so glad you went with your instincts and did not leave little Rex with that woman who would be with him all day and appeared to not want him there. I'm sure it was hard to do but bless you for having the courage.

Well, at least Rex will be in your loving home so he lucked out!

That's cool that you got to see DJ now that he can see!! And he could see you!

It was very hard to do, Sher. Alice is not only a co-worker, she has been a dear friend to me. I even took a care package, including a 5-pound bag of food, training treats, new belly band, pads, etc. I also had a tag made with Rex's name on it, and her phone number. But Rex is my main concern, so I made the call.


Can't wait to go back to work on Monday ~ :HistericalSmiley:

Deb, you've been at this long now and know to follow your gut in these matters! I feel bad for your friend and hope she understands it's for the best. The situation would have been bad for Rex andover time likely would have caused a lot of problems between she and her mom.
Gotta say I absolutely LOVE that photo... that's a true 'Kodak-moment' and deserves framing. It 'speaks' to say what you are all about!

It was a good call Deb----thank God you were there to see what needed to be done! I wish I were closer and i would SO take him! He is precious. This one won't last long for sure. And so happy you and DJ could SEE each other finally! Isn't it a miracle. Did he recognize your voice? They area all so smart. Our deaf dog was the most intuitive & resourceful of ALL our maltese. He even learned sign language!
