The moment I saw this sweet boy on the Les Amix des Animaux site, I told myself that if he were not adopted by the time Sammie Cat and I returned to France that we would consider it.
I've been keeping my eye on this boy ever since last September!
It's never been a secret, through no fault of his own; Gaston is missing his right ear flap. His first interim foster with Pam Garwood until a more permanent foster could be found, pushed him to me even more. Pam and I became friends through her fostering of Milli Vanilli last year, so it was easy to transfer that love that I already felt to Gaston. I continued to keep up with him after he went to his current foster with Lianne Gentle and her sweetheart Gentil!
It was her encouragement and support that pushed me to contact Lynn Hull and say more definitively, that if all else fails and no one comes forward who is suitable before I return to France; I would like to adopt Gaston.
I chuckle a bit because I think that Lynn tried to ease me in to this. We'd begun these more serious conversations last week, but on Sunday morning we were talking dates times and making arrangements. Last night, Gaston was RESERVED for us! We were ready!
When Dali, Sammie Cat and I moved to Cadrieu in 2006, I teased that we were full time French Girls now. For this move, we're going to be two French Girls and an authentic French Guy!
I'm laughing because my tarot card reader kept trying to tell me earlier in the year that he saw a man and a relationship for me in France.
He just didn't tell me that this guy would have four legs instead of two!
Needless to say, we are giggling and we are thrilled!
A very special thank you to Pam Garwood, Lianne Gentle and Lynn Hull for the photos that I've included in this post-actually, my friend Jan Robert took that shot of the Three French Girls! So many, so near, and so far have invested, loved and pushed for our Gorgeous Guy Gaston-HE and Sammie Cat and I say a HUGE MERCI!
