For years I have regularly
checked in with KPR just to see the adoption stories and available
puggies. Having two boys of my own, pug boys that is, I never really
thought I would need to adopt. Due to some unfortunate
circumstances, I was forced to part company with my boys and found
myself coming home to an empty house every night. That's when I went
to the KPR website and did something I'd never done - I
submitted my adoption application. To my surprise, almost
immediately April emailed me to set up my home visit.
After the visit, the same night, April called me back and told me
about a little guy named Elvis. I had stated that I would actually
prefer a special needs pug, since both my babies were special needs
from birth. Elvis had some vision problems and a UTI causing him to
wear a belly bad -a very snazzy one I may add! He sounded like the
perfect addition to our home. We made all the arrangements and
a week later I found myself on my way to pick up my baby!
I was so excited and it felt like Karen and Stacy would never get
there! But when they did and I saw him hop out of the car on his
stylish blue leash and collar, courtesy of his foster mom, it was
love at first sight. I never dreamed we would click so well, but we
compliment each other in so many ways. From taking weekend catnaps,
playing in the snow with our new doggie boots and getting visits
from family and friends, we are a great pair.
We went last night and got our pictures done with Santa at Petsmart,
and the attention we got? TONS! And he loved it every bit! Now that
we have been brought together I cannot imagine being apart from him.
I look forward to spending many more years, wet kisses and pug hugs
with my baby Elvis, Elvis as he has come to be called around the
house. I'll be sending pics soon, and by the way he has gained some
weight and is eating great! He now weighs close to 22 pounds!
Thank you April and KPR!!!!
