Thanks, Pete!
I got to meet Sparkle in person yesterday. She's got a few more pounds to put on. She was neglected and not fed properly, and didn't grow to the size that she should have (girl Brittanys run about 16"-18" at the shoulder and 35 lbs. She's about 10-12" and will be around 22 lbs when she gets into better shape). But she likes going shopping and gave me a big kiss on the nose off the bat. :)

Unfortunately, the adoption fell through. Sparkle was diagnosed with a chronic digestive disorder. I will spare you the details. Her foster mom and I decided that she would be better off staying put.

I have only just seen this. Sorry to hear that Sparkle will not be going home with you. Will you be adopting another dog?

Sue, this just went down in the last week. Thanks for your kind words.
She's had a lot of bad days in the last couple of weeks. When she's feeling well, she's amused herself by keeping her 55 lb. brother in line. When she's not, she sleeps a lot and as I said, I will spare everyone the details.
Yes, we will be adopting another dog, eventually. Some things just aren't meant to be.
