Ju guo has been spayed in America by the expert Doctor Kris. Recovering well, Ju Guo is being looked after by Lori and will soon be up and about, meeting her babies who will be flying to America in the next month or so.
Ju Guo is recovering well from her surgery. She's having lots of rest and good food.
Ju Guo loves nothing better than sitting outside in the peace and quiet, overlooking her garden. She also loves to explore the garden with her sister Ruthie. This is like a dream come true for Ju Guo. She has her happy ever after!
Ju Guo has been settling in to her new home and routine well. She's getting on great with her new dad, Howard who takes her and her fur sister Ruthie for walks together.
She knows now that she is safe and in a loving home. Ju Guo's beautiful smile that we saw so often in China now lights up Lori and Howard's lives.
Ju Guo likes nothing better than to lie on Lori's bed for cuddles and to be told how much her mommy loves her ❤
Lori has learnt a few Chinese words and Ju Guo has learnt some English ones!
When Du left Ju Guo in Beijing, she had placed a small blanket in the crate with her to give her comfort while flying. When Ju Guo arrived at her new house in America, she knew where this blanket had been placed - in the laundry room. She 'told' Lori that she wanted to go in to the laundry room and when Lori let her in there, Ju Guo tried to climb on to the laundry to where the blanket was. Lori placed the blanket in Ju Guo's new bed and just this act of familiarity enabled Ju Guo to sleep for hours, gently snoring,
After a long night's sleep, Ju Guo began to bond with her new daddy Howard by going voluntarily to sit besides him at breakfast. It may take a while for Ju Guo to settle in. She and Du had a very strong bond but once she does start to settle she'll be able to fulfil why her Chinese mommy wanted her to live in America - so that she can go wherever she wants without worrying about being too big or the wrong breed and having laws to protect her. Fun will come.
After a few more hours travelling, Renee and Debbie finally reached Lori's house. Lori was really excited to meet Ju Guo, the adoption has been a long time coming but she was finally able to say hello.
FINALLY it was time for Lori to meet and stroke her new baby. Ju Guo! ♥
Ju Guo arrived safely in America. A couple of weeks before the flight, Lori needed surgery and was ordered to rest so 2 of her friends, Renee and Debbie, drove the 8 hours from Oregon to San Francisco airport where Ju Guo flew in to.
After taking the paperwork to the customs office, Renee and Debbie were given Ju Guo to begin the next leg of her journey. Before they took her to the car, Ju Guo had a stretch of her legs and some fresh air on American grass.
Lori had booked a hotel room for the night for Renee, Debbie and Ju Guo to break up the long drive home and to give Ju Guo a break from travelling. On the drive to the hotel, Ju Guo looked out of the car windows with interest at the new American scenery outside.
After a good night's sleep for all of them, Ju Guo woke up refreshed and made everyone smile at her cheeky voice.
She was a good girl in the hotel room and was again interested in seeing what was outside.
Soon it was time to start the last leg of the journey to Ju Guo's new home and to meet her new mommy Lori! ♥
This morning while Du was preparing her roast chicken breakfast, Ju Guo enjoyed her last moments with her Chinese mother. The two of them have been inseparable since Ju Guo was rescued from a butcher's stall after her heartless owner sold her for her meat. But Du knows that Ju Guo will have a safer life in a forever home in America. Somewhere that believes in protecting animals by law and somewhere that Ju Guo can be loved one on one, go for walks in the countryside and in the forest, come home to her own toys and do what we wish all dogs could do; enjoy living in a loving home for the rest of their lives 💖 Today Ju Guo says goodbye to her home country, China, forever.
After breakfast, and making sure that she had everything for Ju Guo's journey, Du rushed to the transport company's courtyard to meet one of the employees who would take Ju Guo to the airport. Ju Guo's flight crate was waiting for her and her documents and photo i.d were ready to take. Du was going to accompany Ju Guo to the airport terminal entrance.
Time to drive to the airport.
When they arrived at the airport it was time for Du to say goodbye to Ju Guo forever. She told Ju Guo that she must be good for her American mother and not be mischievous at the airport terminal otherwise she would 'lose face'
Saying goodbye was an emotional moment for Du. Now, Ju Guo begins the next chapter of her life...
Today was the last full day that Ju Guo spent in China with Du. It is going to be a very bittersweet moment when Du has to leave Ju Guo at Beijing Airport but she knows that she is doing the best for Ju Guo. She says she wants Ju Guo to live in a foreign country because China does not have animal protection laws. She knows that Ju Guo will be protected by laws in America and she thanks Lori very much for her love of Ju Guo.
Ju Guo has been measured for the crate she will fly to America in. The crate needs to be big enough for Ju Guo to stand in and turn around comfortably so that while she is waiting for to be loaded on to the plane she is not stressed. She will also be able to sleep soundly when the plane is in the air, able to stretch her legs. Our contacts at the pet transport company will make sure she is fastened in to the crate securely and that she has water for her flight. There is not a lot of time left to wait now until she enters the crate to fly out of China ... exciting times!
Ju Guo has been exploring Beijing with Du. It's been a fun few days, meeting new and old friends and enjoying the time they have left together in China. In only a few hours, Ju Guo will begin the next chapter of her life, a new chapter in a new country with her new mommy and daddy who are excited to meet her. If only she knew! ♥
In a restaurant, Ju Guo attracted the attention of a diner who came over to stroke and pet her. Du told her that Lori, Ju Guo's new mommy was waiting to meet her in America. She also told her that China's native Rural Dogs are in high demand from foreign dog lovers, she told her that they are very smart and loyal. Du always tries to take an opportunity to tell people these things. Like all of us, Du wishes that more Chinese people wanted to adopt their native breeds. Ju Guo will be an ambassador in America. An ambassador as a Dog Meat Trade Survivor and an ambassador to represent her breed. Thank you Ju Guo! ♥
