"Thanks." He said with an attempted smile, handing over the form once he'd filled it out. He waited for her to review it and lead him into the back, suddenly nervous for no reason at all. He was just going to go look at some puppies. He had puppies at home and even enjoyed spending time with them sometimes. There was no reason at all for him to be nervous, yet here he was.
Kadin walked down the kennels, looking at the puppies inside each one. He stuck his fingers through the bars to let one labeled "Puppy K" sniff at. He pet "Puppy L" through the bars, smiling at it got too excited to stay still and ran off to chase its tail. He came next to what seemed to be the newest arrival, a fluffy little thing that yipped when it saw him and came bounding over looking for attention.
Shit. He kind of wanted to take home all of them.
"Can I take home this one?" He asked, watching the houluh labeled "Puppy P" at its various antics while it tried to beg for more attention. He eyed the parents listed for the puppy, "Steal from the Rich" and "Miraculous Me", snorting a bit to himself. If he took this dog, he'd probably have to come up with a name just as ridiculous for it some day.
Murr took the paperwork and felt it with her fingers and then nodded and smiled, "Of course, this way." Cacao led her to the back area and she waited patiently as he looked over the puppies. Most people passed over the first little one, a full liver, she had been told. Nodding again, Murr made her way over to where he was standing (with some help from her Houluh) and ran her fingers over the sign. "Yes, Puppy P will go with Kadin of Flamestone Kennels. Please let us know if you're unable to fulfill your obligations to this puppy."
It was rather nerve-wracking, showing up at the houlou adoption agency with the plans to bring home a new pup - she'd barely just finished raising her first one, after all. She'd gotten a glimpse of one of the pups through an open door the day that she had brought Sweetie in for her show, though. Sevyrn had mulled over the idea for a few days, and eventually decided that she wanted to bring said pup home, provided that it was still here waiting for adoption. She walked in and towards the front desk, greeting Murr with a smile. "Hey! I was thinking of taking home a puppy today," she said to the uthax, and grabbed one of the forms that she would need to fill out in order to be able to take one of these guys home. Now... to hope and pray that the pup who had caught her eye would still be here - worst case all the pups were lovely and she would enjoy any one of them.

Kadin hadn't expected to be back here so soon. Much to his surprise, adding a new pup into the mix of the ones he'd already had in his kennel had been nothing but a huge success. He really enjoying having Dodge around, especially since he got on so well with Miles and the other pups. When Kadin was walking by the adoption agency again today, he couldn't help but poke his head in again just. You know. Just to see what else was in there.
"Hello." Kadin greeted, walking over to the desk to fill out the form again. He wasn't sure what he was going to find here today. He didn't even know if he was going to go home with a puppy. But he was proud to write down that he HAD met the requirements so that if one of the little guys did "speak" to him, he wouldn't have to hesitate before taking it home.

As soon as Sevyrn had finished filling out the adoption request form, she handed the sheet back to Murr. "Hope it's done right, I've never adopted from here before," she said and let out a nervous laugh, excited to be able to head back and see the pups that awaited her. If she was lucky the one that had caught her heart after only a glimpse would still be there
Once all was well and Sevyrn was able to go back and see the pups that awaitdd, she was thrilled. There it was - the spotty little thing that already had her heart. The cage that held them was labeled "Puppy L". She took a moment to check out each of the pups that were here leat one pull at her heartstrings even more, but when all was said and done... no. Her heart was settled on the spotted pup.
"I know which one I would like," Sevyrn said as she moved back towards Murr. "Puppy L - they're perfect. I'd love to take them home as long as that's alright."
Kadin nodded, adding the finishing touches onto the clipboard and handing it over. He knew what to expect this time, which was a relief. As he walked back to see the puppies, he was a bit surprised to see some familiar faces. With a frown he wiggled his fingers at the houluh labeled "Puppy F".
"How long have you been in there?" He wondered to himself, looking at the information filled out by the cage and grimacing. He wanted to look at the rest of the puppies first, but he certainly felt a certain amount of sympathy for a pup who'd been here so damn long.
Next he looked in on puppy K. It had similar markings to his own Dodge and he smiled at that. The puppy was cute, too, and had been here almost as long as F.
With a sign, Kadin came to the last puppy he could see available. Puppy Q. Damn it. He bit his lip, knowing that even though this pup had only been here for a short time, it was the one that was going home with him. He'd have to clear out more room in his kennels...
"This one. Puppy Q. I'll take this one home... this time." And maybe some day he'd be back for the others, too.
Cacao led Murr to the kennels and she listened for the woman to make her choice. Reaching out, she felt the raised letters and then nodded, "Yes, Puppy L will go with Sevyrn of Blinding Lights Kennel. Please let us know if you cannot meet the requirements for this pup."
"Of course, Puppy Q will go with Kadin of Flamestone Kennels. Please let us know if you can't meet the training requirements for this puppy," Murr said with a fond smile, feeling the raised letters that read 'Puppy Q'. She was sad the others still hadn't found a home, but they would soon enough, she was sure of it.
Dream had been a welcome addition to her kennel. Now that she had trained him up a bit, she was ready to adopt another puppy. She made her way over to the cozy Houluh Adoption Agency with excitement in her heart. She was ready to take on the responsibility of another puppy and was excited to see the selection of puppies that were available to adopt this time. She was more calm this time when she entered the building. It was familiar to her and because of that, she didn't have any anxiety about the situation. She felt her anticipation grow as she could hear the distant sounds of Houluh puppies that were ready to head to a new home. She moved to the area where the forms were located and greeted Murr as she grabbed a form to fill out.
"Hello there! I'm ready to adopt a second puppy now," she told him happily.

Murr recognised the voice. A return visitor! She was delighted with that, although it did not show much. "Of course. Please, follow me," She said, and Cacao stood, prepared to lead her back to where the puppies were housed. "Take your time in making a decision."
Fanged was led back to the area where the puppies were kept. There were four puppies available for adoption at the moment. She glanced at each puppy, seeing if she was drawn to any of them in particular. She found herself being drawn to one of the puppies and a quick check of labels informed her that this was Puppy R. She crouched down close to the puppy and held her hand out for her to sniff. Puppy R hesitated for a moment before she approached the woman. After she sniffed her hand, she licked Fanged’s fingers in greeting.
“Hello there, sweetie pie,” she cooed to the Houluh.
The puppy was shy, but she seemed okay with Fanged’s presence. Once she grew more comfortable with the woman, her tail began to wag excitedly. She spent a few more minutes with the puppy until she was certain her mind was made up.
“Alright then, my choice is Puppy R. Puppy R is the perfect fit for me.”
Morgan had not adopted a puppy here before. They had quite a few puppies, theirself, but they were really looking for fresh blood, or a neat set of markings, or really a pup with a neat outlook. They weren't entirely too sure. Maybe they wouldn't even pick a specific puppy today, but they did have the intent to. They stepped in, and then up towards the counter, ready to do some paperwork when they needed to. "H-hello. I'd like to look at the puppies up for adoption, a-and if there is one that is a good fit, I'd like to adopt it." Morgan said. "I'm Morgan with Wiltholm Estate Kennels." They noticed the cute Matronne that the caretaker had, and smiled down at it. They may not like people much, but they had a soft spot for animals, and especially houluh. She was scuh a pretty chocolate and red color, and oh so loyal looking!

Murr nodded. It would be done. She carefully fetched the pup from its enclosure, then made her way back to the front desk with Cocoa, to complete the papers and put the pup in a basket. "Pup R will go to Luminol Ranch. Please inform us if you cannot meet the requirements of this pup."
Murr did not know this voice. She raised her head, as did Cocoa, and pushed forward the papers needed. "Greetings. You will need to fill in this." Once all was signed and prepared, she would get up to lead them to the back room, where the puppies were kept. "Please take your time."
Morgan was very sure to go ahead and quickly fill out the forms provided. Their tightly looped and leaning scrawl is quickly jotted down, and then they stand back up. Their eyes don't leave the working houluh for a lot of the situation, mostly because it was fascinating how well trained and responsive to the caretaker of the HAA the houluh was. Truly a testament to the life-changing uses of the species. Still, Morgan politely hands the papers back. "Thank you." The bespectacled human managed to get out, though nervously.
After being lead to the back room, Morgan looks over each puppy. There was one that they recognized, a baby of their own Cozette- all cocoa in color. Still, the human was here for new blood, so they didn't give the puppy too much attention before moving on. There was a lovely hoodie baby, with a heart on its nose (they were surprised to see that!) and a monochromatic puppy with a face bisected with white and black. The human lingered on that last one, but moved on.
The last puppy that Morgan saw was 'the one' as far as they were concerned. They reached down to pet the long ears, lifting one up as they scratched behind the other. It was pure white, with the tiniest tan paws, and the tell-tale lipstick and eyeliner marks that denoted it as the same kind of white marking that their houluh Saturn had. They stood up, reading the sign. "P-puppy S..." They noted. 'Bring on Autumn' huh? That sounded like an offspring of one of theirs... Aw well, they were smitten anyway. "I'd l-like to adopt Puppy S, please." They decided.
Mummified my Teenage Dreams- No, it's nothing Wrong with Me.
Murr was patient and quiet while their patron decided on a pup. It was a very personal process that she tended to keep out of when she could. When the decision was announced, she gathered up the puppy to take them to the front desk. "Very well. Pup S will go with Morgan of Wiltholm Estate. Please let us know if you cannot meet the requirements of this puppy."

Xentus: Contacted cubeupload about this and another issue I'd been having, turns out the image not updating may be a cloudflare issue. But, the server is getting an update hopefully over the weekend that'll resolve this
Oct 1, 2020 1:37:30 GMT -6
Morgan: Certainly, I appreciate it! I'm sure it is probably something my computer is doing, it will probably fix itself, but if it doesn't I'll be sure to get ahold of you. :3
Sept 30, 2020 23:57:37 GMT -6
Xentus: Oh let me know if his image doesn't update for you after like a day or so, I'll try to reupload or give you a new code if all else fails
Sept 30, 2020 23:53:40 GMT -6
Morgan: Oh, neat! It is really cool to see the first draft. It really helps seeing the initial thoughts- I do love how he came out even more knowing the starting steps of the journey.
Sept 30, 2020 23:49:00 GMT -6
Morgan: Thank you, again. I know it was a lot of hard work to bring him to life.
Sept 30, 2020 23:46:58 GMT -6
Morgan: You did a great job. c: I love how his face looks, and that wing aura is probably my favorite thing about him. I've kinda associated constellation-y stuff with Morgan's magic before I even had Morgan onsite, and it really ties them together.
Sept 30, 2020 23:46:37 GMT -6
Xentus: I was afraid I didn't apply his concepts very well actually heh. The mask inspired his markings and his face shape vaguely. If you look closely at his wing arua, there's little constellations
Sept 30, 2020 23:43:11 GMT -6
Morgan: I'm sorry I probably didn't give the easiest concept/idea/body type to image combo, but you really, really knocked it out of the park and he came out even better than hoped. <3
Sept 30, 2020 23:34:50 GMT -6
Xentus: I'm so relieved <3 I'm really happy with how he turned out
Sept 30, 2020 23:33:01 GMT -6
Morgan: The more I look at it the more I love him. c: His lightning-bolt shaped horns are awesome.
