There are two types of bichons that people are at times less than enthusiastic about adopting. Those two types are ELDERLY bichons, and bichon PAIRS. We don't quite understand peoples' reluctance, because we think either variety is just wonderful... but nonetheless, pairs and/or elderly bichons can sometimes be in foster care for quite some time before they are finally adopted.
We'd like the general public to be aware of how wonderful such adoptions can be!
Please read some of the testimonials of our families below. These people all took a chance on an older pet (OR TWO!) and have never regretted it!
Some of us are nine or ten
We will never be young again
The time we have left we'd like to share
That empty space beside your chair
A little stiff sometimes we might be
But in your loving company
That little bit of care we know you'd show
Would get us up and on the go
We are not so young, we are not so fit
A faithful friend is what you'll get
Take us home and you will see
Just how grateful we can be
When you go out we will sit and sigh
We miss you friend, and that's no lie
When you come home, the joy we feel
We will stay beside you at your heel
Our wagging tails and big brown eyes
Show you that there are no lies
No deceit, no falseness here
Just love and trust and lack of fear
We know we are home, we are here to stay
From now until our dying day
So thank you friend for giving my friends and me
My last few years with company.
