Junior Jones Goes Home!

This past Friday we said goodbye to our foster dog, Junior. A wonderful couple, Michelle and Jason, fell in love with him and decided to make him a permanent member of their "pack". Unfortunately, Jason had to work so he couldn't meet us at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to finalize Junior’s adoption. We did get a couple of photos and clips of Michelle and Junior before she loaded him up and took him home.

Here we have the honorary changing of the leashes:


And here is the first time Michelle walked Junior after all the paperwork was finalized:

I  had a chance to catch up with them Saturday morning and Jason said Junior was “beyond expectation.” They were just settling into the new routine and working on some obedience hand signals. Junior even had a chance to get acquainted with the cat a little sooner than expected (thanks to a door being accidentally left open) and everything went well. We know Junior will have a wonderful life with them. Congratulations Jason, Michelle and Junior!
Keep posted as Jason and Michelle have promised me that they will send updates and photos of Junior’s new life.
Special thanks to:
Jennifer Anderson at Animal Coalition of Tampa for pulling some strings to get Junior in for his neuter surgery so quickly. http://www.actampa.org/  
Neighbor Jeff for taking all of the beautiful photos of Junior, which helped him get adopted. And for all the dog walking and pet sitting so I could get an hour or two off here and there to spend with Harper (even though you let Junior up on your bed… rotten Jeff). http://www.facebook.com/#!/video/video.php?v=1933018132043&comments
Dr. Christy Layton and the entire staff at Timberlane Pet Hospital and Resort for taking such good care of Junior during his stays and continually going the extra mile for homeless animals in the Tampa area. http://www.timberlanevet.com/  
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay for listing Junior and for helping me find him the perfect family! http://humanesocietytampa.org/
I just love a happy ending!
