Hi there, everybody! I've got some wonderful new furiends stopping by the blog today, thanks to my big interview today as a member of Mayor Madi's cabinet. Cinderella and I are the co-Directors of Housing, aka Foster Placement. See, most of you folks out there have your very own blogs, but this isn't MY blog. The Legacy Chronicles is the OFFICIAL blog of Legacy Boxer Rescue, the totally pawesome rescue group that Cinderella and I were both adopted from. We blog to share all the news about LBR and the wonders of adoption so we can can help find homes for all the pups out there who haven't found their wonderful furever homes like all of us.
Well, in honor of our official introduction as Directors of Housing, I wanted to have a VERY special post. And fortunately, a very special dog had a very special day this weekend, so what else could my post be about but her?? Once upon a time, there was the absolute cutest pup you've ever seen, named Napoli.
Yeah, you thought I was exaggerating about the cute factor, didn't you? Take another look.
Napi was a very special pup because she was born with something called "hydrocephalus." That's a big long mouthful of a word that means she had water on her head. It sounds silly, doesn't it? But it can affect a pup's development, and we weren't sure how long Napi would live or what kind of life she would have. Her foster momma took her in as a tiny puppy, knowing that she might never be adopted and might have to go to the Rainbow Bridge at any time.
But Napoli surprised us all by settling in pretty nicely to her foster home!
Time passed, and everybody loved Napoli. (Wouldn't you???) She had a lot of problems with her development -- she was a lot slower to grow up and reach milestones compared to other pups her age. But those things smoothed out as time went on and her foster momma worked and worked with her. Finally, her foster momma realized that Napoli was actually ready for a furever home of her own, if she could find the right one.
But then something SUPER special happened! Napoli's foster momma got a call from someone who had adopted one of her earlier foster dogs, Rider. They loved Rider VERY much and spoiled him the way a boxer should be spoiled. But sadly, Rider's big brother Pre had just gone to the Rainbow Bridge, and Rider was missing him SO much. Rider's family decided they were ready for a new dog, and when they were looking at LBR's website, they fell in love with Napi-doodle!!
Napi and Rider met, and it was love at first sight. The whole family fell in love with pretty Napi, and Napoli loved them too! So now our sweet Napoli has found her furever home, and I just KNOW they're all going to live happily ever after.
Sigh. Don't you just LOVE a happy ending??
