Nigel Tuftnel (aka Gramps Crusty Butt) has a meet and greet later today with a very nice family who recently lost their elderly cockapoo.

I'm happy to report that Nigel is now part of a family with one brother and two sisters. :D He's got a Jack Russell sister, Angel, in a cart/wheel chair thingy (she's a hoot in it, too!), a Jack Russell brother, Steinbeck, and a Corgi/Jack Russell sister named Jeremiah.

The mom and dad are sooo nice and wonderful....they seem to specialize in special needs dogs and Nigel was instantly comfortable in their house.

Be a good boy, Nigel!

Update from Nigel's mom!

****************************************************************************************

Nigel is doing well. The first night he slept on the big round dog bed under the dining room table. He was asleep there when I went to bed, I didn't want to wake him up. He was still there when I got up the next morning. Monday night he slept on the small round dog bed in Jasmin's room. Last night he slept in the basket in our room after I got Steinbeck out of it. S made a dash for it to keep Nigel out, I'm sure of it. Nigel kept coming in and walking around. I could tell he wanted to get in the basket. Finally I put Nigel on our bed. That was enough to get S out of the basket. Nigel got right off the bed and got in the basket.

Yesterday afternoon I found Nigel twice in the big round bed, Once curled up next to Jeremiah and the second time curled up next to Steinbeck. That has got to be a first. No one ever shares beds around here, except for ours.

Monday night I took Nigel with Angel and I to a birthday party with some girlfriends. There were five other dogs present besides mine. Nigel was the hit of the party. Lisa wanted to take him home, (she only adopts old dogs). I told her she could babysit sometime.

Yesterday, I took everyone to Marymoor. He does seem to enjoy the car. Nigel was on the flexi the whole time. I was quite surprised that he trotted the whole time and actually even ran (for him) for a bit. He has only mossier in the yard, like you said he did at your place.

Sunday evening Nigel ate his whole dinner. Every meal since then he has left three or four bites. I hadn't thought I was feeding him too much, it's such a small amount.

I think Nigel's hearing is a bit better than you had thought. Today while Les is working in the dining room and making all kinds of racket, Nigel has adjourned to the bedroom. When I call his name, his ears perk up. Granted that may be because my voice is higher pitched or that I talk louder to him.

I got an ID tag for Nigel on Monday. I was wondering if you would like me to mail you the collar you left on him. I am assuming it did not come with him from Oregon. Since you foster so many I thought you would like to have it back. Every bit helps.

****************************************************************************

Yay!
