LUCY HAS A HOME!!!!

Postby Moemer » Sun Jan 11, 2015 8:01 am

My long, long, long term foster - almost 20months... IS BEING ADOPTED ON THURSDAY!!!!!!!!

OMG I can hardly believe it.

I'll be posting her 'adoption photo' on her page on Thursday.

I am so happy for her, Emily - and for Elsie - and for you! Thanks for sticking by her. I hope her transition to her new family goes well.

Emily, thank you SO much for hanging in there with Lucy. I know it was hard on you and your family (four and two legged). I'm so glad that Lucy's finally going to have her very own home!

Lots of people on her FB page are asking Lucy to continue posting updates after she is adopted.... I can't say that is likely to happen!!! (though I'm going to post a couple written in "my" voice after she is adopted to follow-up, because everyone likes that... but not long term)

Well, I say don't worry about that right now. Once she's adopted that's not really up to you anymore.
Maybe her new mom will like the idea of creating a new Lucy FB page. All you can do is alert her to the fans Lucy has and their ongoing interest in her.

Emily, do you know how Lucy's new person found her? Was she just looking for any dog and the rescue recognized that Lucy could be a good match? Or did she hear about Lucy somehow and was interested in her specifically?

I think she found a cross posting through another rescue (from my blitz!), was directed to my rescue, viewed the FB page, and inquired specifically about her.

Cool! I'm always curious about how much influence social media has in making those connections - all those shared sites, photos, stories, etc.
