Our friend Douglas

Hello all

We have been a bit busy lately - you see we have a visitor staying with us. And D says 3 Wires in a house is a lot of work! But we keep her busy and she doesn't become a couch potato! So it is like we are providing a service - no?

D and C help out the Fox Terrier Rescue whenever they can - and they were asked to pick up and foster our pal, Douglas. This is difficult for D and C as the last dog they fostered was Paddy and we all know how that went! You have already seen pictures of him on the Fun Walk - he came with us and kept up all the way!

I had a little problem with him at the beginning - I mean how many little brothers does one gal need? I was a little bossy - but not mean - just bossy - my house, my food, my couch, you get the picture...But I settled down and now we all get along - here is a photo of the three of us on the couch - we all love cuddling our people on the couch - but when they get up they put pillow bookmarks - otherwise we steal the whole couch and they have to sit in the other chair which isn't as comfortable...

Douglas is a little shy - we keep trying to take photos and a video but he stops moving - here is a photo we did manage to get...

Douglas is a sweet boy - he gets a little excited at times - but settles down pretty quickly - he enjoys going out and seeing new places - he was particularly fond of the pet store! But he is a true terrier - he tried to hunt the little bunnies in their enclosure. Funny for us - not so funny for the bunnies. So we bought him a stuffie - which he hasn't destuffied yet....

We have put him on the Fox Terrier Rescue website - so hopefully he will find his furever home. There is a really lovely family interested in him and we hope it all goes well ... we will keep you posted....

Smell ya later...


  1. Douglas is so cute. I hope he will find a great family soon.
    Kisses, Faya

  2. In the perfect world all furries would have a forever home. What a wonderful world that would be to live in.
    Thank you so much for coming to my retirement send off. It meant a lot to me that you were there. It has been a pleasure getting to know you.
    Love to you and your family.

  3. Douglas is such a cutie!! We hope if he doesn't find another furrever home, that he can stay with you - you all look so cute sleeping on the couch.

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

  4. Hi Sally!

    I just wish I could be Douglas 'forever home'.
    So, hope the family you mention are it.
    And, he still gets to take part in WFT walks so I can give him a cuddle.
    I will without saying still walk you!!!

    Love, pats & pets

  5. You all really do have excellent woozles (beards)! I hope Douglas get his furever home quickly. I'm sure he's loving it there with all of you, but a furever home is the best!

  6. haha - pillow bookmarks! We love this idea only we're not allow on the sofa so no pillow bookmarks are needed at our house!
    What a cutie Douglas is! Our paws are crossed that he finds his forever home soon.

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. What great work woo are doing Sally!

    Douglas is surely furry khute!

    Paws khrossed his furever home is just 'round the khorner!


  8. Pillow bookmarks! What a great idea! Even though I don't get on the couch (not that it's not allowed ... I'm just not interested yet)

    I've said it before ... Douglas reminds me a lot of Jakey. We are all hoping he finds his furever home soon AND that maybe, just maybe, his new family will blog so we can keep up with him. That'd be the best deal yet! Our paws are crossed.

    Fergi (and Jake)

  9. Pillow place marks? How mean is that??? You poor squaries. Though it does make for a cute picture but even so. Douglas is super special but I can't really really really can't believe a fine wiry like Douglas would get excited. A wirey boy get excited? Na. Never. The leggeds must be confused. But paws crossed Douglas finds a forever home soonest. He deserves to. Thank you for taking him in Sally and Paddy and your leggeds and for giving him some special wiry loving meantime.

    Wiry loves and kisses Eric xxxx

  10. Hi Sally, Paddy and Douglas,
    How cute is that picture of you three on the couch!!!??? SOOO cute!!!
    Sally, you are a very good girl to invite a homeless terrie in to stay until he finds a forever home.
    Love you all, Bambi and Fern (her Mom)

  11. Douglas is such a cute boy. I love his fluffy face ;)

    I think you need to get a bigger couch and more pillows so you can squeeze in one more doggie! Do your humans sit on the floor?

  12. Wow Douglas looks like a really cute fellow....hope he can find a great ferever home....the 3 of ya look very comfy on the couch...

  13. Pillow bookmarks huh? More like fannymarks! tee hee hee! My humans got all excited about Douglas until they saw he lived across the big water. He's so handsome it won't take long to find a forever home.


  14. Douglas looks adorable. He sounds a lot like myself...I am camera shy too as you know.

    He will find a furever home soon because he's too cute!!!

    You are wonderful to share the sofa with him and make him feel loved. And everyone gets their own pillow? How sweet!!

    I'm sending Lakie smooches and luvin all the way across the big blue sea to all of U.

  29. Sally, It's me again, For years I struggled with learning to sew. I tell my age but when I went to high school there was no sewing classes. In just one year after I was in the 10th grade they started a sewing class in the 9th grade. I bought a dress pattern once and I tried & tried but did not get good results. I did better on my own. Now I watch Sewing with Nancy on PBC and sometimes Love of quilting.
    Have a good day, Fern

  30. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww........
