Actually, that is not exactly true, because I just placed Lana, now Kaya. She lives in my neighborhood and hope to see her soon in group class. She is sister to Layla.

to show how much the dogs blossom.
Last but not least is Cayenne. She is 5 months old and most likely Aussie x Spaniel. When my daughter's and I we went to Tender Touch to pick up Valli, 9 days ago, there was Cayenne all shut down and shy and smelling like urine, looking at us with her deep soulful eyes. My girls fell for her sweet ways right away, but I was
|Cayenne left and Layla right. Both super dooper sweet pups.|
Looks like the same make up artist did both their eyes.
We also had another foster dog that I chose not to write about. Not all dogs coming into any rescue at any given time are going to be "ok". We referred to her as "basement dog", because she spent a good portion of her two week stay with us down stairs. She did not come from CARA by the way, and the people who sent her were very surprised that the sweet dog they knew did not adjust to life in Maine. Her crime was not only being quite barrier aggressive, but she guarded from the other dogs and attacked a puppy. The puppy was not hurt, but I had a bad gut feeling about her and she never got a second chance. Now, it is common knowledge that dogs will do things when stressed that they will no do other times, BUT, there is a good chance that any dog will be stressed again. The clincher was that Finney wanted nothing to do with her and Beck and Charlee hated her. I have come to rely heavily on Finney's assessments in regards to other dogs. He has never been wrong.
Best wishes "Basement dog" I hope things work out for you.
The Maine Dog community, and Golden lovers everywhere, and anyone who has ever met my friend Suzan in person or on line mourn the loss of Logan who died yesterday after a very short battle with Mouth Melanoma.
Loosing a young service dog is tragic. My heart breaks for her.
