7 months of freedom!

Yes, another anniversary has come. I've been with my foster family for seven months now. I'm officially up for adoption so I'm just loving life while I wait for that special family to fall in love with me and take me home.

I went to the beach for the first time last week. Foster mom took me for a walk on the beach and I really enjoyed walking in the sun on the sand. I've never seen water like this and I wasn't scared at all to walk in up to my belly. I can't swim so I didn't try that. I'm not really scared of much (your hands are the exception) so walking in the water is no big deal for me. I'm going back to that beach to go camping next weekend. I'll let you know how that goes.

How's life you may ask? It's all good. I'm loving the sunny days of summer, going for walks, hanging out in the yard, napping on the couch with foster dad, eating Milk Bones, and just being an iggy.

It's clear that my left front leg, that was broken at some point, causes me no problem. I can run, go up stairs, and jump on couches without any problems.

I love being in the yard!

Hi everybody!
Just a shortie to tell you all how much I LOVE the yard. I don't think I was out much when I was in the mill. I'm making up for it now though. I love to be outside when it's sunny and walk around, chase my foster siblings, walk among the flowers, and mostly lay on the grass and sun myself. Sometimes when foster mom and dad are outside and I can hear them I bark so they'll come get me to go outside.

I'm officially up for adoption. I'm currently listed here:

I hope that someone out there will be my forever family!

Iggy 500

I just got back from my first extended road trip. The foster parents took me and bro Dinky to Indianapolis for the Iggy 500. This the annual fundraiser/playdate for IG rescue in the midwest. It's a chance for those crazy iggy people to get together and oogle each other's iggys, spend some money on iggy stuff, and let the iggys hang out together. I had a very fun time. I didn't know how I'd be in an area with many people and hundreds of IGs. Well I did fine. Mom and Dad were surprised at how independant I was. I spent alot of the time wandering around, investigating all the different smells, and people, and dogs that were there. I let some people approach me and scratch under my chin. I wasn't frightened by all the noise and action. No one fell in love with me and wanted to take me home though. I saw Cari, who was the first one from IG rescue to take me in. She thought I was doing great.

I also travelled really well. I pottied when I had to. I was quiet and well-behaved in the hotel rooms and in the car. Considering all that I did and saw I'm very proud of myself. Mom and dad are very proud of me as well.

Any day now I'll be listed for adoption. If you know of someone with IG or puppy mill dog experience and they might want to give me a loving and patient home have them contact my foster family.
