Hi again everyone. Thank you for sharing "tails" of your adoption experiences!
Short update.
I did receive a follow up email from the first fellow I talked to at the tent last Saturday. He said he didn't know when Remy (6 yrs) would be ready to adopt. I think this entails assessing his behavior with cats, kids, folks, other dogs and his health and general behavior. I also factor in that he could be of interest to someone in the "inner circle" of the agency. Mike did state that the foster he was caring for, Chloe, 9 yrs old, is adoptable very soon. A very sweet girl whom I also met that day.

Something difficult about adopting a 9 yr old. In a few short years one will most likely have to go through this decision making process again. You never know when you'll need to go through the process even if you adopt a puppy but it's "most likely" you'll have to go through it with an older dog. The payback is that you know you've given a good home to a sweet dog who doesn't have an entire lifetime to be with you. Truth be told, if I were ready right now and both Remy and Chloe were ready I'd adopt both of them.
