About this blog
Hi, Marcelyn here.
I am a lifelong pet lover. Both dogs and cats have been a major part of my life. But since moving to Boquete many years ago I have not owned any pets. Many reasons, but they are not important now.
Earlier this week there was a posting by Javier and Magaly about the need for either a foster or permanent home for a two year old female Husky that had just been rescued from a very bad situation. The pictures just pulled at my heart. This all happened two days ago (Thursday, July 7, 2016). I saw the email Thursday morning, thought about it, talked with Bud, then scheduled a meeting with Javier and Magaly at their place in Volcancito, which was done late Thursday afternoon. The decision was made. The dog did not even have a name -- just "dog".
I did a bit of research and came up with the name "Anouk", which is a Hebrew word that means "God has blessed me" or "God is gracious".
Anouk arrived yesterday morning about 10:00AM, Friday, July 8th. Magaly and two volunteer friends (Kirsten and Art) brought Anouk to our home in El Santuario area of Boquete. When they got out of their car, Anouk was in the back seat and somewhat reluctant to exit. That reluctance lasted only about 10 seconds. And then, she exited with exuberance, jumping and running incessantly. She had a new home, and we got the impression that she liked it immediately, knowing that she was going to be taken care of and loved.
I am starting this blog to chronicle my experiences as a foster home for Anouk.
