Adoption pending

So...about a month ago I think it was I put in an application with HRI. I applied to volunteer, foster, and adopt a specific little guy on their site. There have been phone calls, emails, reference checks, a home visit. All this time ie been trying not to get my hopes up. Then one day while visiting the pup's page on HRI site I noticed it said Adoption Pending. I still didn't want to say anything on here.

But everything seems to finally be in place. Last night we got our plane tickets to fly out and meet him. He and Bama will meet, and if all goes well, we will sign the papers and bring him back home with us.

Today is April 19th. We fly to Texas May 10th. The first meeting will probably be May 11th. Such a long time to wait!

I meant to ask, anyone have advice or suggestions of things to do to get ready?
We ordered the Southwest Airlines official carrier (at 10-12 pounds he would need a Sherpa medium, but only the small is guaranteed for SW). We are having it shipped to my parents' house in Texas instead of to us since we won't need it for the flight there.

We will be getting steps so he can get onto the bed and sofa (he is a special needs dog).

Congratutions. I'm so happy for you. Glad the wait wasn't a long one. Keep busy so the time will go by fast, although May is almost here. Hope Bama and the new guy hit it off. How exciting for you.

Yay!That's so exciting You are doing a wonderful thing.

Is it Bear??? He's adorable.

I adopted Riley 3 months ago and it took Piper a while to accept him. The queen bee did not like having to share her things and I made sure to give her extra attention and let her know she was still top dog but it was a rough adjustment for her.
That said, they were just rolling around on the rug playing bitey-face for 20 minutes (so cute!) and I know I did the right thing.

Yes, it is Bear.

I am hoping the accepting goes okay. She loves hanging out with other dogs, and when we visited my parents over the holidays she kept wanting to play with Miss Yorkie, even when Miss Yorkie wasn't interested. She showed no jealousy or possessiveness then, of course it we were not in our home turf. The key thing will be how she adapts to having another dog in her house.
