In May, Moby received this email from my friend Miranda…
I don’t know if your foster mom has told your or not, but I am in love with you! I haven’t even met you and I know you are the boy to help fill the hole in my heart that Brutus left this world with. Please understand, I know that you won’t ever be able to fill that hole completely, but I think you can do a great job of helping to heal it. There’s only one problem – your future sister is sick and frankly, she’s kind of a b***h (not literally though, as she is spayed).
I want you to know that your foster mom is going to look for the perfect forever home for you in the meantime, but if we’re meant to be together (and I believe we are), someday you’ll come racing into my arms, slobber me with your kisses and curl up and spend your forever days in my heart and home. I can’t tell you if that someday will be days, weeks, or even months. I know that your foster mom takes very good care of you and she’ll know if someone else comes a long that would be a good fit.
Since you don’t me, I’ll tell you a little about myself and your future family. Much like your foster mom and dad, we like to get out and explore. We live at the ocean. Your mom says you really like the water and I might let you swim a little in the ocean, but only on a leash. The current is sometimes too strong and there are lots of icky things in our water (not like in a lake!). I like to run, hike and spend time in the yard playing. Your future dad works from home, so there is almost always someone around. We have a big fenced yard that is fun to run around and play in. There’s a dog door so you can go outside whenever you want. We get up pretty early, but every once in a while we like to sleep in.
I hope to meet you sometime this summer/fall so you can decide if you love me as much as I love you. Until then, please be good for your foster mom and dad and be patient with Turkey and Rufus. Put on all your charm when you go out just in case there might be someone more perfect for you than me!
Your (hopefully) future forever mom
Well, a lot has happened between that email and now, which I will be sharing with you this week, but I can officially say that Moby has left the building… and his new family is PERFECT. Stay tuned…
