I'd hoped the Niece and I could get together because I'd wanted to give her Cricket's remains. Knowing how much she and her family loved Cricket, I felt strongly that she should be returned to those that loved her first. I found it so fitting when the Niece told me she was going to spread Cricket's ashes at Flossie's grave-site. We both agreed that there could not be a more perfect place.
On a much lighter note, we had our "post adoption visit" today from Lab Rescue for Georgie. His adoption contract said that it wouldn't be "official" until the rescue was satisfied that he is settling in and doing okay. Not knowing what to expect, I made sure everything from the smallest detail on the inside and the outside was in perfect order. The volunteer came, greeted Georgie and the rest of the dogs, (Todd was tucked away in his crate) asked a couple of questions, and in 10 minutes tops, she was gone. I was glad I'd not gone through a lot of trouble. As you can see in the photo below, Georgie was still excited about her visit after she left.
