Follow-up Friday: Daisy was Adopted

I'm happy to be joining Heart Like a Dog in the follow-up Friday blog hop this week.  This is the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.  Hosted by FUF creator, Jodi at Heart Like a Dog and co-hosted this week by Dawn at Pet Auto Safety blog.

I'm going to begin with some fantastic news.  

Remember Wanda / Daisy, the Bloodhound I featured as an adoptable dog in the Tuesday Tails blog hop? She was in temporary foster care in Virginia and on her way to another foster home in CT with Bandit's Place.

She has been adopted!

Not only does she have a new human family, she has a new Bloodhound brother, Duke!  You might remember that though the rescue named her Wanda, before that her name was Daisy.  Her new family has re-christened her Daisy.  Perfect, since she now has a brother named Duke.

Looks like she's settled into her new home mighty well! I love a happy ending.

Now, I have a confession:  sometimes I'm an idiot.  As I read the comments on my KONG treats giveaway, I couldn't for the life of me figure out why some people were wishing Jeffie a happy birthday.  I won't tell you how many times I re-read my post, trying to figure it out.  Thanks to JoAnn and Jackie, the light bulb finally went on.   

Note to self:  be sure to doublecheck each and every entry option when you're "recycling" a Rafflecopter contest.   Sorry, everyone!

If you haven't already, be sure to enter to win some new KONG Pumpkin Stix and American Chicken Tenders dog treatsOur dogs are crazy for them.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my Looking Back Wordless Wednesday post.  This is the primo backyard watchdog spot and I just wish I had a puppy photo of Jeffie there, too.   

Congratulations to Jodi!  She spotted the size difference between Rudy at 4 months and Rosie as 6 months old.  Yes, Rudy is a very big boy.  Rosie?  No so much.  She endures many nicknames around here, including "Shortie."

That's our week!  Join the Follow-up Friday Blog Hop and share yours!


  1. Awesome recap Sue and such great news about Wanda!! I remember when I found out one of the dogs I featured was adopted, it's an amazing feeling. Woot woot for Wanda.

    Thanks for joining the blog hop. Kiss those sweet pups for me and have an awesome weekend!!

  2. Great roundup! Yay for Daisy getting a adopted! That is so great!

  3. Hi Y'all!

    So wonderful! Adopted into a home with another bloodhound! How good is that!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  4. Yay!! I love to hear adoption stories!! It's always exciting to find out that one of the dogs we've featured has been adopted! Thanks for following up on her. So glad she went into a Bloodhound-experienced, Bloodhound-loving home. It just makes things so much easier when a family is already experienced with a particular breed.
    I can't remember if I commented on the Rudy and Rosie pics. Such precious photos... it really is too bad you don't have a similar shot of Jeffie around that age.
    Thanks for the reminder about the Kong treats giveaway! Need to go enter again.

  5. Yeah!!! Good luck Daisy!

  6. Best follow up of all is to hear that a pup got a furever home! Yeah Wanda!

    I'm sure I would do the same, and be just as confoosed, if I recycled a Rafflecopter giveaway. :)

  7. Well, thanks for solving the birthday mystery. We felt bad that we had missed it! I think that hound has found the ideal home, what a great ending!

  8. So glad she got adopted, a success story! No problem helping you figure out the mystery. Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. LOL! I thought I remembered that Jeffie already had a birthday. :D I'm so happy Wanda or Daisy was adopted. Is it Wanda or Daisy? The blog title says Daisy but the link says Wanda.

    1. Good catch, Dawn! I just edited to clarify. This dog's original name: Daisy. The rescue re-named her Wanda. Her new family prefers Daisy... which certainly goes with Duke :-) Thanks!

  10. That's wonderful news! Daisy and Duke look like they really like each other already. That's pretty funny about the Rafflecopter lol... I'll have to remember that if I ever decide to recycle one. And Thank you very much for your words on the blog earlier!

  11. I am so happy to hear about Daisy!! Her new family look like a pretty fun-loving bunch! :-)

  12. Such good news about Daisy. Love bloodhounds. I hoped she would get a great home and it looks like she did!


Go ahead... bark at us!
