Martel & Ellsworth aquired their names because they were found as strays, along with their brother Glenco, on these streets in Dallas. These babies were defintely ying and yang. It was found early on that these two could not be separated. They were fostered in a few different homes, went to all the events like they were supposed to and even had their pictures taken by the wonderful TERESA BERG PHOTOGRAPHY.
Finally, while under the care of their foster mom, Darrah, their ship came in! Problem was – ship only came into Oklahoma! Peggy had seen these two on Facebook a few times and inquired about them and we were lucky enough to have a dedicated volunteer (Teresia!) do the home visit – IN OKLAHOMA!! Today we recieved an update on these two dolls!
Thank you for those who played a part in their rescue. Thank you Teresia, Valerie, Beverly, Barney’s Ranch and Darrah for fostering these sweet babies!
From Peggy – I wanted to give you an update on Martel & Ellsworth. It’s been almost a month since Martel and Ellsworth, two adorable Chiweenie siblings, came into my life. I had followed them on your Facebook feed for a while, even though I now live 4 hours away in Oklahoma, because I lived on Martel Ave. for 7 years during my time in Dallas. After much thought, I inquired about them, and after the application, an interview, and signing a contract, a volunteer/foster mom, Teresia, even delivered them to me here in Tahlequah.
They are a delight, even though they haven’t adjusted to my cats yet — all in good time. They love to pile on me when I sit on the couch, especially if I have a blanket they can burrow under. They also test my ingenuity and ability to stay one step ahead of them. One baby gate was not enough — I had to stack two of them. Paper products are fun to shred, even though toys abound! And they really enjoy the screened-in porch! They have given me a more active routine, an enthusiastic welcome every time I come in the house, a new topic of conversation among friends and coworkers, and lots of puppy kisses and love!
Thank you so much for all you do to rescue and foster furry friends like Martel and Ellsworth!
Great endings & beginnings!
