Saturday was really a roller-coaster of a day that ended with the much anticipated arrival of Taylor who came from about 4 hours away in West Virginia. No matter what the time, and no matter how tired, all the introductions to the new kid need to be done properly to get things started on the right note. I knew that Taylor was exhausted and stressed, because the person who brought her to me said that she whined during most of the trip. But despite everything, she handled meeting everyone just fine, and in the early morning hours, we called it a night.
Taylor really seems like a nice girl. Her first day with us has been spent sleeping in our bedroom. But she has had quite the week. Her owner passed away, and she was left alone in only home she's known until arrangements could be made to get her to us. I've not seen her wag her tail, she hasn't eaten and doesn't want anything to drink. I'm hoping that when she realizes that even though her world may appear upside down right now, she's going to be okay...I promise.
