It's official, it's 100%, Magoo has found his new home!
This is the FM corresponding for him while he's in transit. His new parents came to meet him this morning and, as expected, drove off down the driveway with Magoo in the back seat, offering driving tips and navigational help, as always.
It was love at first sight - I am always surprised at how the foster dogs know when they meet their new family. He jumped happily into their car and never looked back - just exactly as we wanted. No regrets - he's moving on to the next chapter in his life.
His new young parents are the MOST marvelous people, and they've stepped right up to give Magoo the perfect home, including a brand new crate, and a "safe" room for him to be alone in when they go to work. Most of the time, though, his dad will be working from home, so Magoo will have almost constant companionship - he's so excited at the prospect he can hardly stand it. They even rented a car to pick him up in since they felt he might not be comfortable in the back seat of a pick-up truck! After all, he is a big guy, and he's used to his couch (and yes - he already has his own special couch in Joe's office).
After he helped us load up all his belonging into the trunk, he got his first gift - a brand new lion toy. He was in 7th heaven! I've got some pictures of him with it that I'll send along later, but for now, just take a look at him with his new parents. No more squinty eyed, downtrodden, hairless critter - this is a big bold male Bullie absolutely BURSTING with pride as he shows off his new family.
His new Mom said she'll be keeping up with his blog once we figure out how to do it long distance!
