Back in March we welcomed Kirsten. And today, seven months later, Kirsten left us for her forever home.
|~The day we met Kirsten, on March 31, 2018~|
When Kirsten first became available for adoption, there was practically no interest in her. Then, like that, I had three inquiries about her. I decided to meet each of them.

The first Hopeful Adopter we met, Ms PhD
was a single lady with a shy border collie mix named Frisky. With the passing of her last dog several months ago, Ms PhD
really wanted Frisky to have a companion, so the two being compatible was important. She lives in the country and is home most of the time and does therapy work with all her dogs. I let them all go for a walk together to get better acquainted.
The second Hopeful Adopters, I'll call "the Grandparents"
lived in the city and had specific hopes for their new addition. One requirement was that the new dog like and get along with young children. This was a concern because Kirsten came to us as a stray, so her past is totally unknown. I let Grandma
take her for a walk.
Finally, the third Hopeful Adopter I'll call Old Friend.
It has been a number of years, but I knew her from the time that I served on the board of the rescue. She recently lost her Golden, and is looking for a dog to share her life and bed with. Old Friend
lives in a retirement community so there are a lot of people and other dogs around. She took Kirsten for a walk too.
I've tried to not give too much away, and I know the pictures aren't the best, but can you guess who was picked for Kirsten? Leave your guess, and I PROMISE to post on Sunday with who KIRSTEN chose as her forever home.
