Marnie is the dog that is going to come live with us, if (and only if) it is a good fit for her, a good fit for my dogs, and a good fit for Ryan and I.

I wasn't looking for another dog. I'm still not sure that I want another dog. She's been with her foster (a friend of mine) for many months. And for many months I have stalked her Facebook page to see pictures of Marnie. Obsessively. I thought about her, a lot. The whole cliché bit about not being able to get her out of my head. So finally I said we can at least try. We can meet her, and get to know her, and if she isn't the right fit, well gosh darnit at least I tried!

First step is trying to get Frodo over the hatred I'm sure he'll have for her. He hates tall, skinny dogs. She's tall and skinny. Then we need to make sure that Siri isn't too much for Marnie to handle. She has had double FHO surgeries, and can get worried about super bouncy, out of control dogs. She loves her foster's french bulldog though, so here's to hoping. She also hasn't ever lived in an apartment, so we need to see how she handles that. Just...lots of "ifs" right now, so I'm not getting my hopes up.



Anyway, this is Marnie...

ETA: Forgot the most basic info. She's 6 years old, 80 pounds, and a Lab/Boxer mix.

Oh my word she sounds like an absolutely sweetheart. Such a pretty girl!

So hoping all those ifs end up not being ifs. My fingers and toes are crossed for you!

She is very, very sweet. Great with everyone. Even during the tough, painful recoveries from the FHO surgeries, she never so much as growled at a human. If she stays, I plan on doing therapy work with her, if I can find a group and get involved.

And she loves kids. My friend posted a picture of her standing at the back door, and she said she'd been standing there for over an hour, wagging her tail because she could hear the neighbor kids playing, even though she couldn't see them. And I though, darnit, I'm going to have to interact with kids for this dog! :p

I've been reading Rubi's blog forever (I can't remember the human behind it's name... Sara?) and that's the dog I thought of as soon as I saw the name Marnie! No way, it's the same girl. :)

Sending all the vibes that the dogs transition smoothly.

Vibes that those "ifs" work out in yours and her favour!

She's gorgeous! I love her. Hope it all works out!



Or have one.

:cool:
Or....not. Ever. :cool:

Yay! Is this the thing you weren't getting your hopes up about a few weeks ago?!?!

You have all of the guarded vibes from me!
Yup, same thing. This has been in the works for a couple weeks now. We had to get approval from the powers that be at the rescue to get started, and then her foster went on a 10 day hiking trip while we waited for a response. HOW RUDE! :p

It is the same Marnie :D Laura is one of the few people that I trust to be 100% honest about the dogs she is fostering, and the only reason why this even got started.

She would get to join the Hip Dysplasia club!
She does! That makes, Frodo president (because I said so, and there aren't enough dogs in the club to vote!), Gabby the VP. Marnie can be...secretary? We'll figure it all out at the next HDC meeting ;)

She's so cute and sounds like such a sweetie. I really hope it works out for you guys. There's a senior basset in TX that I'm struggling not to stalk right now because I really don't have the time/money that he would deserve. But my heartstrings, they are being tugged.
