Very cool!!!!!! 

So..... does this mean you are just skipping over the fostering and going right to adopting?

Can't wait to see him!

U know when u just see a pic and u see into their eyes and u just know he is meant to be....thats how im feeling right now. Cant stop looking at him. Lol. Apache is gonna be happy to have a brother to play with. Cuz the cats sure dont fulfill that. Lol...
I thought about the fosterng....but i think it would be too hard to let them go.  I dont want to cry more then i need too. Lol

I'm sorry.  group hug
But don't give up, it took the foster Mom 3 days to get back to me after I emailed her, after we were approved. 

I hope you hear something soon!

They may not be home right now, maybe out of town or they travel.  Let us know as soon as you find something out.  The waiting is the worst part. The receiving is the best part.  group hug group hug group hug

Please don't forget this thread and come back and let us know what's happening.

Glad he is holding him for you.  Hope you are there by 12pm Saturday. I know at our rescue, we give first dibs to the one who is committed to getting them and we do hold to the committment of holding them until a certain day.  He is a cutie and those paws  eeek  He is going to be a bit on the big side I think. Grin  Keep us posted, I get as anxious about it as you do.

Kate, come pick me up and I will go with you. Grin  I wish I could.  Be careful and keep us updated on your travels.
At least you will not be traveling home by yourself.  Bring Apache with you for the meeting. (Do I have the right dog you still have at your home?)
