Yuki Found Her Forever Home

This is bittersweet- Yuki, one of the sweetest and most gentle dogs this side of Lily found her forever home. Devon (my sister) texted me in tears to “please don’t be mad at me” to inform me. She was adopted by a couple who foster-failed for Furkids, and the wife works with kids with Cystic Fibrosis and they are going to train Yuki to be a therapy dog. Here she is with her new big brother Bogart (the foster fail):

And here she is snuggled up with her new bff:

She looks like his mini-me. Such a sweet doggie.

    Sorry, John. I’ve given a couple of short-term fosters up. One broke my heart (as I suspect this did to you). Hate it. But love it, too. She looks happy and that’s all that really counts.

    ETA: the therapy dog thing is great. They’re needed. We’re in the middle of certifying our dog, we’ll be doing the reading programs at the library and possibly, if he can handle the emotional stress, courtroom work. He’s a sensitive doggo, though. We’ll have to see how that goes.

    Sad for you and your menagerie, but super thrilled for Yuki. She looks so happy with her new big brother and what better purpose could a dog possibly have than as a therapy dog? She’ll be great at it. I heart those pics.

    Sounds like Yuki will have the perfect “job” for a pup with such a sweet disposition.

    @raven: I was so pleased to see your comment that Bohdi just had a fatty tumor, nothing to worry about. Yay! I replied in that that, but it was long dead when I did so.

    She was born to be a therapy dog. She does look like Boris too. Thanks for letting us know. Just the good news I needed.

    Did you find out any more about that lump on the Bohdi’s leg? Been thinking about him, hope it’s an easy thing to deal with.

    (EDIT: And if I had scrolled through a few more comments, I would have seen that all is well. I’m glad.)

    Yuki is so sweet. She’ll be a great therapy dog.

    Love those blushing pink tummies.
    Aw man, can’t help getting a little teary. My pup is now living with my sister. I recently had to move to an apartment and couldn’t bring her with me. She’s only five minutes away, but damn, I didn’t realize it was gonna be so hard.

    Awwww! If Yuki is as sweet as you say (and I see no reason to doubt it), she’s going to be very happy as a therapy dog for kids. Good call.

    Is Yuki close enough to have play dates w her pal Lily?

    Great placement. Good for Yuki and those she cheers and encourages. Important work for such a small pup.

    i love this so much.

    we had to put fiona, the dog of my heart, down two weeks ago when she suffered a complication during a test (which found cancer so it was the right, if most painful, decision). i am living for happy dog stories.

    Yay for Yuki! They are both adorable. And Bogart is a great name for a dawg.

    Sorry for your friend.
    I hope you don’t mind a slightly political comment here but FUCK Fucking Cancer. If I had one wish granted in life, it would be that all cancer ceased to exist, in all animals no matter how many legs they do or don’t have.

    @beth: Oh Beth, condolences on the loss of your dear fiona! Try to take comfort that it probably spared her more suffering, but I know that’s not easy now.

    @beth: Oh, beth I am so sorry. Even when it’s the right thing to do, it is a *hard* thing to do, and I hope you have lots of happy memories to ease your pain, along with the comfort that you deserve from knowing that you minimized hers- throughout her life and at the very end, too.
