|Jamie and his kids|
Here are Jamie's photos from his awful situation on a chain and the ride to Albuquerque. It took a village to jump through all the legal hoops and situations but the wonderful people at NMDOG and the volunteers in Las Cruces Gayle Lyle-Castle and Officer Kelly Jameson who rescued him from hell and brought him into our lives and our home, are our heros. Thank you so much for making this all possible for Casa de Cuckoos we are very grateful. And to our Known Angel who paid his adoption fees, you are the sweetest and bestest and you know we love you.
|how could anyone just leave sweet Jamie like this?????|
|someone on FB said he looks like he was praying....I think so too|
|He looks so exhausted|
|and here's our sweet crazy beastie now|
We came home and he (Jamie the woodchuck and the next great magician, Houdini reborn) had escaped from his crate and he met us at the front door. Bless his pointed head. How can you be angry with a sweet animal who just put himself through gyrations and contortions to escape from his crate? We certainly could not. SM said that Jamie was just trying to show us that we needed to fix the crate for his safety.
Today we have done 10 minute drills in the repaired crate. He can watch us and hear us while we did our chores and ate lunch and he just is like a lamb. We went outside to test the quiet and gave it a 20 minute try and he was a little more anxious but I think that if we keep working on it, leaving the door open so he can come and go and letting him know that the crate is safe, friendly and not a bad thing he will get the gist of the exercise. We put all his toys, and there are many already because the kids have spoiled him with gifts being the new baby in our house, in the crate and he is doing the self serve method of play and leave your toys everywhere, like all sweet babies do.

But the best part......he's ours. Offically. Today we signed the papers and the Woodchuck is the latest member of Casa de Cuckoo. Jamie is home forever.
