Thanks everyone,
I have to share. I had the most awesome experience today.

Thursday night I submitted an on-line application for adoption with Arizona Poodle Rescue. I had seen a couple minis on their site that interested me. The woman who received my email responded that she'd keep my app. on file and to follow up with her when I'm ready to explore adoption.

I the meantime, I read in the paper on Friday that The Franciscan Renewal Center (Retreat) was having an Adopt-a-thon. Cats, dogs, rabbits, horses etc. It's a really nice event at the retreat (monks) outdoors, tents and very well represented rescue agencies. Decided to attend. On my way driving over there I thought I'd like to name a new pup/dog/poodle "Remy". Just thought of it out of the blue - wild thought.

So, I park the car, approach the venue and the third tent in is the ... I didn't know think or suspect they'd be there. I approach the tent, meet a foster guy, Mike, and his Parti. Go to the back of the tent and meet Merlin, Australian Shep/Standard Poodle and GORGEOUS... in the process of being adopted. Then. Yea. Guess what. I meet Remy. Remy is a 6 yr old black male they found at the pound just about to be put down. Of course, AZ rescue rescued him. He's small for a Standard (my preference). I was dumbfounded. He was sweet and responsive.

Of course, I'm waiting until I retire to get a dog but this event is providential. I've sent an email to the woman I first corresponded with to let her know my interest. Asked to meet him again. If he's not adopted by now it's not meant to be. But, somehow, I think it was meant to be.

We'll see.

The topper is that I left the event and went to Whole Foods for shopping. Told my Fish Guy that I'd met Remy..... His Boxer who has passed over is named Remy.

The great thing is that I got to meet these folks who foster and determine the rescue's behavior, etc. .. and they got to meet me. I'll follow up Big Grin
I leave you with that.
