Mr. Chips was taken into custody by the Pet Adoption League in Tulsa. His foster mother contacted me because he had terrible separation anxiety and a number of other challenges. When I asked him what his favorite food was, he told me wheatberry cereal with meat. His foster told me that his previous owners gave him fast food hamburgers.
When I asked him about his anxiety he told me that it came on so fast…like a wave. He didn’t understand it either. He also told me he was here right now to help his foster mother prioritize and set boundaries.
A month or so later I received a call to tell me that Mr. Chips has found a home with an elderly, but very fit and well-to-do gentleman in Stillwater. His new dad is unbelievable happy with his new side kick. They run around in the car together as well as enjoy long walks. I think that Mr. Chips’ new dad with have separation anxiety if he is not around.
Sometimes we have a wait a bit for our ship to come in. We all dream of a happy ending.
