Meet Wiki (PJ Wicked)!

After losing my beloved Lila on December 2, I was planning on taking a break from having a dog. Just before Christmas a friend told me about a 7 year old brood momma up for adoption. She thought this might be a good fit for me after having old lady Lila, instead of an 18 month old who never raced which seems to be what is available around here. Initially it was a hard no, I was grieving Lila and didn’t want a new dog to disrupt that. But I couldn’t resist looking into Wiki. She’s black with white toes, which is what I secretly hoped next dog would be. She’s not cat or small animal safe, none of those here. She’s related to Lila through Gable Dodge. She’s got a complicated medical history, that doesn’t scare me. And she was with the adoption group since August with no interest in her.

So I called the foster parents and she came for a visit on December 26. She terrorized my house for 90 minutes before laying down. :omg But the fosters assured me she would settle after a day and she was very sweet and affectionate. I submitted my application the next day, the adoption rep called right away and we arranged delivery for January 2.

She is my black shadow. Lila was content and confident from day one, Wiki comes to the bathroom with me. She wants to investigate everything. She is very fast, even by greyhound standards. She loves attention, food, and toys. We are working on some separation anxiety but I don’t think it’s too bad considering she has likely never been left alone before.

I still miss Lila every day, :brokenheart maybe more so knowing just how perfect she was. But Wiki is a very good girl and I love her already. :wub:

And proof that she is sufficiently spoiled already and doesn’t have to sleep on the hard floor.

(I’m still figuring out how to take pictures of a black dog. It’s extra hard when the sun never shines.)

Welcome Wiki! What a beautiful girl. I’m sure she will settle in soon and you can go back to having the bathroom to yourself (if this happens please let me know your secret). It sounds like she was waiting for you and you found her at just the right time
