A very nice, very ig experienced couple is coming to meet my cute foster pup Herge tomorrow afternoon. I am excited. We shall see what happens, but I have a feeling that fate may be at hand. We call our foster Herge, after the famous French speaking cartoonist who invented Tin Tin, and the very gentleman of the couple is French, and doubtless grew up reading Tin Tin... So we shall see!

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Herge was indeed adopted just about half an hour ago. They are very sweet people who have had IG's for about twenty years, so I have the good feeling of knowing that they know just what they are doing, and will give him the good life that he deserves. Bon Voyage, little boy!

No, I didn't think to, Linda. Too bad. I am one of those people who doesn't think to take pictures unless prodded.
