The first day of the rest of her life...

Today was a really good day, and I'd like to share it with you.

I went to pick up an abandoned English Setter bitch that had been rescued Friday by a lady who couldn't keep her. I was supposed to pick her up (I was closer than anyone else in our unnoficial setter rescue mission) and evaluate the situation: physical and mental condition. Then tomorrow a friend should pick her up to go to a temporary family, until a suitable owner was found.

I found a very thin girl, with a damaged eye and a couple of skin injuries. I also found a beautiful girl with a good bone structure and mostly an amazing personality - very friendly with people and animals, got in my car next to my dogs as if they were long time friends!

I took a couple of friends with me, to help out in case she was scared of the car or any other complication. And .... something amazingly good happened. My friend and the little dog looked at each other and feel in love instantly!!!! After 5 minutes it was official: the girl had found a permanent loving home with long time dog owners (and sometimes petsitters to my girls).

She definetely needs to put on a lot of weight (15kgs) and her eye needs lots of care to try and recover it, but other than that she's perfect! And I get to keep a really close eye on her and see her everyday!

It was just amazing to have such a simple and happy ending to this story! I'm hopping I'll get to post some pictures of Pitanga, Romã and Adobe (her new name) very soon!
