High Five Link
I finally have a link to a video of Christi and Lexi doing the "High Five" trick. See it here!
Joey has been sleeping in our bedroom at night. (She used to sleep in her kennel downstairs.) We put her in a laundry basket so she doesn't get up and soil the carpet at night. Well, this morning she wanted out of the basket. BAD. She actually tipped the basket over and escaped! She's a clever little dog. :)

Well, George had to leave. We think he saw Joey as a meal. After going after her twice, we didn't feel comfortable having him in the house. Another foster family took him home last night.

We got George! He's a really sweet dog. He hasn't eaten much, which concerns me. Perhaps he misses his girlfriend.
He doesn't much care for Joey crawling around on him, nor does he seem very playful with Lexi. Again, perhaps he misses his girlfriend.
You can check out pictures of George here.

Rabies and stitches
Joey went to the vet to get her rabies shot. She also had the stitches removed from her chin since they hadn't fallen out on their own.
The bone that was sticking out of her chin is gone! I don't think the skin healed over it. I think it fell out. Who knows...
George at 6:30
Yep, we're supposed to get George later today. About 6:30.
Christi asked a good question the other day. Why do people put quotation marks around dogs names. Like, my dog "Lexi"... I don't do that. But why do others?

Well, Tucker Bear isn't going
Well, Tucker Bear isn't going to be living with us. His owners decided not to give him up.
Instead, we're getting another dog. I don't know his name, but he should be here tomorrow.

Joey's back from the vet.
Joey's back from the vet. She had x-rays taken. She does have a bone sticking out. Yuk.
Christi's Joey update reminded me
Christi's Joey update reminded me of something. After the scab fell off, there was this white-ish thing under her chin. I couldn't get a good look (and really didn't want to) until last night. It's really "bone" colored. Because... (glup) I think it is. I think part of her jaw is jutting out. Ewww... I wonder what the vet will say...
Joey update: Joey goes to
Joey update: Joey goes to the vet today to get x-rays to see if she can have her wires taken out yet. More later . . .

Here's the scoop: Our new
Here's the scoop: Our new foster dog is named Tucker Bear. He is 2 years old and will be arriving between 12:30 and 1 tomorrow. The people who are giving up Tucker Bear are older and just can't give him the exercise that he needs as a playful 2 year old. I'm sure Lexi can take care of that for us. It sounds like he is very well-behaved and very playful, so I'm sure he'll fit in at the Koch zoo just fine. :)

Christi called Nancy yesterday and
Christi called Nancy yesterday and we're getting a dog! Nancy had 5 dogs to choose from. Christi and her narrowed it down to two and then Christi and I picked one. What is his name? Perhaps Christi can give you the scoop.

We got an email from GRRIN saying they have to turn away dogs because of the shortage of foster homes. Christi is calling today to tell them we want to foster. From the email:
Here is the April foster dog report. Feel free to call me if you have any questions. Also, we are in desperate need of foster homes right now. We have had to turn many dogs away recently because there is no place to put them. If anyone can help out with fostering, please call Nancy Bowen in Lincoln at 402-327-9457
If you're interested, call Nancy! I'll personally reimburse you for the call if it's long distance!

Joey's doing very well! She's happy and energetic and really loves her canned food. She'll be disappointed when she has to back to dry food. Lexi is being fed in a room by herself so Joey won't bother her. We're trying to be more strict with Lexi; we're not allowing her to wrestle in the house anymore, and other things like that.
