Windy City Here He Comes

January 26, 2012

Our Holmes will be heading to Chicago on February 11th.  He will have Anne, her firefighter husband, his very own boy AND his very own baby girl (just 5 months old).  He will also have a Cardi sister named Zoe.  Anne was a former Junior Handler who had Cardis.  She’s excited about Specialing Holmes occasionally and training and trialing him in Obedience.  I could not be happier with this placement.  I know that our freckle-faced boy will have a wonderful life there.  Anne promises photos and stories about the adventures of Holmes.

As an aside, I received my Thundershirt for Holmes.  He wore it last night — didn’t bother him at all while he sprawled on the bed.  The true test will come when I warm up that Dremel.  I will let you all know how that goes.

    Great News!! It sounds like the perfect place and situation for Holmes. I look forward to hearing of his adventures. It sounds like he will be very busy with 2 children to squire about town. Best Wishes Holmes!!

    I am so happy for you, Holmes, and his new family! Using the Thundershirt for nails made all the difference with Bug; I hope it does with Holmes, too!
