By Friday evening, they knew for certain that Jolie is a "keeper", and they will be adopting her, once she's ready to go. Jolie is apparently very sweet and snuggly, and quite a smarty-pants; she's a quick learner. She's coming along on her housebreaking, although having the occasional "woopsie!" in the kitchen area (better the kitchen than a carpeted room I say!). Her foster sister, Mia, is not quite as convinced that Jolie should stay, but is gradually coming around.
Here are a couple quick pics of the oh-so-pretty Jolie (who's looking much better now that she's grown some hair back!)

I'd like to take a moment to again thank the generous people who donated towards these girls, be it financially, through food and supplies, or through their time. The total vet bill for these girls wound up being just over $800 (a big thank you to Dr. Mann and all the staff at Menzies Pet Hospital), and $350 of that was covered by direct donation, plus nearly another $100 donated through our website and PayPal.
We purchased the girls' medication seperately (cheaper), and it came to just under $100, plus the shampoos bringing that cost to around $160. We are still accepting donations towards the girls' care, via The Lovely Fund. Any extraneous funds raised will go towards the future care of other dogs like Lovely, Bree, George, and Jolie.
