Hi everyone, sweet baby James here and I have wonderful news to share with all my RAGOM fans. My forever family found me!! I am moving up north and get to live with a mom and dad. I am an only dog now and I will get to hang out with my folks' grandchildren every weekend. My new family saw the photo of me wearing my Thundershirt and they immediately knew I was the dog for them. They had lost their previous dog to cancer just a short time ago and he too had thunderstorm anxiety and wore a Thundershirt so they know all about that problem and were not worried about having to help me with my anxiety. I get to live close to Lake Superior and will get to go hiking with my dad and run errands with my mom. My dad is recently retired, so he stays home all the time and I get to hang out with him and help him with the honey do list of projects. I have a 2 acre yard that has an invisible fence so I have lots of room to run and play fetch. My new family brought their 6 year old granddaughter with when they came to meet me and when they came back to pick me up today, she brought me a brand new ball to play with....how cool is that. I love kids and I love people so I get to have two humans all to myself. I will get to socialize with other dogs when we go for walks and maybe I'll go to obedience school so I can fine tune my skills. My new family is going to teach me how to do high five and shake a paw since I like to use my paw to get attention. They also love that I like to give hugs. Boy, did I hit the big time or what!!
I want to send a special thank you to my first foster family who took great care of me and helped me learn so many things about living as an inside dog. Thanks for taking a chance on me and teaching me how to behave in the house. I also want to thank my friends at Stone Mountain for taking great care of me and my brother Jesse when we stayed with you. Everyone was so nice to me and took such great care of us. I also want to thank my friends Jimmie, Rocco, Raven and Willow 12-112 for letting me come live with them while I looked for my forever family. And thanks to my foster mom for picking me up from boarding and helping me with my storm anxiety by getting me some medication so I could feel better when it storms. My new family will keep me on my medication and will work with me so I can feel safe when it storms. Last of all thank to you the nice lady Jen, who rescued me and Jesse when we really needed help. Oh and thanks to all the folks who gave me a ride and to RAGOM for helping two Golden/Lab mix boys so they could find forever homes. I'll send in an update to the happy endings page once I get settled into my new home.
Bye for now, your friend Sweet Baby James.
