We got an e-mail back from our dog’s foster mum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We knew nothing about his history except that he was brought over with the Save a Sato program. He had been adopted and returned once, and all his paperwork had been lost in the shuffle.
But now we know that:
1. He has 4 siblings, Heather, Honeybun, Herbie and Hazelnut. (His old name was Healey, we renamed him Yogi)
2. Most of them have been placed around here so we should be able to see them at the Sato reunion in August.
3. He had been found with the other puppies eating out of a trash-bin to survive. He was less than 2 months old.
4. He lived with Doris, his foster mum, for 2 months before flying to Massachusetts.
I have been looking at him with new eyes today. What a lot he’s been through! And there was no way for him to tell us. I can’t stop fussing over him. What a good, good, dog!
