Our little Lupe died on Thursday and poor Mariposa is moping around so we set about locating a new companion for her. There are many dogs for adoption or sale, and we reviewed many ads, but we wanted a good fit for Mariposa and a dog that would be good in the house.
I initially wanted a lap dog, somewhat smaller than Lupe was but we both were impressed with the photo of a dog that had most of a front leg missing, hoping that this would indicate a dog with courage, but dependency.
After a few calls we ended up south of Ucubamba at the home of the founder of Fundacion Peloditos and they had many dogs, mostly from the vet clinic where he works. Several dogs ran up to us, all but one initially barking at us. Even the one we came to see barked at us, but then went off to lay by herself, looking very sad. Unfortunately 2 sad dogs aren't going to make a happy house. At first I thought that he said that the amputee was the only one for sale, but he later said differently when I asked again.
The lovely dog that did not bark at us, but immediately was licking our fingers, was outstanding from the rest because of its absolute cleanliness and intelligent look. Even though this dog is a tad larger than Mariposa, she had captured our hearts and we figured that she would be a good companion for Mariposa.
So please meet TURI, ....yes, named after the Mirador south of Cuenca.
Turi has to get accustomed to being in a house rather than an outside enclosure, and Mariposa will teach her the ropes. We took them both for a long walk and they both behaved very well. Hopefully their friendship will form quickly and strongly.
I hope you enjoy the photos. That was the day's excitement, Cheers, Al
