    Default Quincy, from Polish straydog to Dutch service dog

    A month has gone by since Mhina passed. I am still so very sad and miss her so much but I have to keep looking towards the future. I need the help but also I need the company of a loyal canine friend in my life

    And so, I slowly started looking for another dog. And since my heart is with the rescued ones, I looked at rescued dogs. Not easy since they should be quite social, not fearfull or afraid because I no longer have the time nor the energy to go that extensive route first of socialising a fearfull dog.

    Well, I think I saw a possible candidate He's a rescue from Spain and lives in a fosterhome only 9 miles from where I live, so it will be possible for me to go visit him. And I will go visit him, this coming Monday afternoon.

    He supposedly is very gentle and very friendly. Plays with the children a lot (fetch!) and loves to cuddle. He loves people, children, is social with other dogs and animals. He is familiar with indoor living (tv's, vacuumcleaners, he knows it all) and can walk on a leash He's stable and friendly...

    He's 8 months old at the moment, will be around 50 - 55 cm high eventually and he''s named Obi

    I will create a new album and share some of his pictures...and possible others as they come along and if needed.

    Saskia.

    Are you wanting to add to an existing album? If so, open that album, and the "upload" button will be on the upper left-hand side above the composite page of existing album photos.

    This is just insane... I have created numerous albums, added loads of pictures without a problem but the upload button is really nowhere to be found. I tried it with a newly created album and with the existing albums... There's simply no upload button

    Update! I now know why there was no upload button, my upload space was filled to the max. So I first had to delete e few pictures...and voila, there's the upload button again

    Will now upload the pics of the Spanish gentleman :-)

    I just checked your albums, and you're right! I wonder if maybe you've exhausted your allowable space, because I know there is a limit. I will check on this later today and get back with you re: expansion if that is what is necessary. Sorry for the delay, because I am so anxious to see your pics!!!

    P.S. I see we were posting at the same time -- so glad you found at least a temporary fix!

    Well, I still have to go see him on Monday and then there's the next hurdle, the medical exam...will have to wait and see how everything works out. But he looks like a good candidate and a very sweet dog
