I volunteer as a foster for Fluffy Dog Rescue and WI Westie Rescue. I live in a quirky old house, with my family, that we fondly call "The Plantation". It is here that we "fall in love" with every dog we foster! The purpose of this blog is to provide additional photos, descriptions and videos so you can learn more about our fluffy foster and follow his or her journey until a fur-ever home is found. You may even "fall in love" just like we have!!!
Thanks for looking and for choosing RESCUE!
Calli is the cutest Packer fan!!! I also love how she chews up those crunchy munchy treats!!! 😊 She is really showing us her loving personality these days. She's relaxing more and more. It's great to see her so happy!!!
I'll take another treat, pleeeeeease!!!
One thing that came to mind today is that Calli would do fine without a fenced yard. She actually prefers to go on walks for bathroom duties. She doesn't like wet grass. She would even be a good condo or apartment dog I think. She just loves spending time with her people!!!
Had a busy morning. Now Calli and I are getting my son from work. RAIN!!! Waiting for him and taking pics, lol!!!
Waiting in the parking lot! Calli jumped in the back as I have the seats down. Hi Calli!!!
Selfie! Hi Callie-pants!! Why I call her that I have no idea!!! Lol!!!
Huggies... ear flip!!! 🐶❤️🐶
Home again!!! Driving into our driveway. She sees birds! Calli loves hunting birds! #onbirdalert #littlehunter
Movie watching night! Calli loves sitting on the couch ... maybe not to watch the movie but certainly to snuggle and get belly rubs!!!
Calli is my 55th foster dog. Some dogs stay for days, some weeks and some months. So it's not really too hard to get up to a high number of foster dogs.
I love Calli-- of course I love them all--and can honestly say she is one of my easiest foster dogs. One of my favorite foster dogs. A dog I'd love to adopt if I was looking for a dog buddy!!! She is such a wonderful buddy!!! 💕
If you are looking at this blog and are single... here is your new friend!!! She likes her 'mom' very much! At this point follows me everywhere. 😊 If you are a couple with no kids or grown kids... she's the best girl ever...will sit at your feet or take a nice walk! She will follow you and comes when called and has lovely house manners! Not a barker but will bark if needed. Lower energy. Prefer a laid back quiet and loving environment. May take longer to trust men but here she knows all the guys and loves them very much. It has taken time to get where we are at. Be patient! Often people rush things and that's not helpful.
I'm in no hurry. Calli can hang here as long as she needs to! I'm hoping for just the right home for her!
Thank you for checking her out. She's the best! A southern belle!
Calli was phenomenal as we took her out to socialize! We figured a wine bar on a Tuesday would be a good start. No kids. No dogs. Just adults. Yes!!!
Lots of people petted her. (I'd say mostly women were the petting type!) She watched kids get out of the movie theatre next door and saw dogs being walking nearby. Calli was great!!! We know Calli loves women so they petted her freely and often and Calli would have gone home with any one of them, LOL!!!
She did fine with the men as well but they mostly just said hello to her her but they didn't really try to pet her too much ...which was excellent.
I thought she might bark at dogs on the street but she did not --she stood up and watched them intently but that's as far as it went. GOOD girl!
We were there about two hours and she was so calm and such a huge hit with everybody 💕☺️ I was very VERY proud of Miss Calli!!!
Chip has been fantastic all weekend. He has been playful and funny and sweet. He still has a loud bark for a little guy. Ha!!! I have been starting to leave him out uncrated for short periods when I am not at home and everything has gone well. He really is ready to go to his forever home and whoever gets him is a lucky ducky!!! 🦆!!!
Chipster has a cool color going on! I say he's "in style" because he's various shades of grey!!...kinda like the wall colors I see so much of these days!!! He also has black tipped ears and a bit of honey coloring mixed in. The fluffier he gets the more gorgeous he gets!!! No shedding, either. Yipeeeeee!!!
I could take a zillion Chippy pics. He's so cute! I'm wondering if he's one of those Teddy Bear dogs? Maybe??? He's very much a mommy dog. Follows me like a shadow. I walk... he walks... he goes where I go! So soooooo sweet. Sits at my feet all the time. If you want a lil buddy --he's your guy!! ❤️🐶❤️🐶❤️🐶 Potty trained... loves walks... likes toys... especially fetch!!!
Had to post this picture of Calli! JP sent it to me as he watched Calli while I was gone. It's just too cute! 😴 Her ear looks extra 'flippy' here! Love a doggy with a natural flip to her ears!
Well, Chippy and I are back home. :) He was the best traveler and best boy at our rummage sale. Way better than I expected. So very good natured!!!
When we got home Chippy did a lot of zoomies around the yard and had major play sessions with his dog friends. Happy reunion!!!
Calli on the other hand was so happy to see me! So many happy dances and snuggles!!! She was actually smiling-- and was so adorable with her big grin! Good to be home.
Today I cleaned out my car. Since its looking nice I thought I'd take a pic of the dog car seat I use. All the fosters enjoy it!
It's a Console Snoozer. It sits between the seats on the console. This is a size large but a small size would be perfect for most smaller dogs. Calli, who is 24lbs, sits comfortably in my large size. Very cool product to own, and I recommend it, if you like to drive with your furry friend.
Chip and I drove 2+ hours to my dad's house to get ready for a rummage sale (Friday & Sat). Chip rode in a crate surrounded by rummage 'stuff'! He did super!!! Not even a peep was heard from him. We left at 8:30 am and worked our fluffy tails off all day getting things ready! It's now 8:30 pm and it feels like midnight! We are bushed! Chip has been super amazing to everyone! Strange house? No problems. New people? Hello new friends! Chips a go with the flow kinda guy!
Will Chippy be at the sale??? Well, he will be whisked away by one of my friends on Friday morning during the sale but will be at the sale all day on Saturday. It you live near Oconomowoc and love garage sales you may want to stop! Just drive to Old Ashippun-- you will find us on Hwy 67 near the Maple Inn. We hope Chippy brings us good sales with his cute little face!!!
Tonight Chippy and I will be 'bunk mates' on my child hood single bed! Squish! He's already hogging the space!!! 🙃
Waiting for customers!
Cute Chippy in an old vintage buggy we were selling!!!
My friend Terri picked him up and hung out with him all morning! He even visited a rehab center and the people there were in love with him!!! 💓 He road on the lap of a lady in a wheel chair! Awwww!!!
He came back in the afternoon pretty tuckered out! Here he is begging for my muffin at the check out table! Of course he had a smidgen! 🙂 Who could say no to him???
Day one of the sale is done! Chippy had a very very very busy day!!! He met oodles of people -- including a baby--and loved them all and they loved him!
What TV time looks like at my house! #cornerseatdogonfeet 🐶🐶🐶🐶
1.Gave Chip a bath. He was perfect. He seems used to grooming. Stands very -- very still. 🛁
2. Today Chippy grabbed a Roma tomato off the vine in my garden box and gulped it right down. I was shocked! Made me wonder if he ate veggies to stay alive while he was on the streets in Alabama?!? I don't wanna even think about that! ☹️ 🍅
3.We live by the Fair Grounds. Had fireworks tonight. Chip got so scared he pooped on the rug. 💩 Poor Chippy! We wrapped him in a towel for comfort and JP (my husband) held him. After they stopped he was fine. He then ran outside and went potty on the bushes like normal. 👍🏻
Calli doesn't like fireworks either. She hid under JP's chair. After they stopped she was also fine.
View from my Attic! In case u wonder why I'm often in the attic, lol, it's my closet!!! Spoiled to have a whole 3rd floor for a closet!!! 👸🏻
