    You could say it was all for a good paws.

    Four dogs who were orphaned when their Schaumburg owners died in a Labor Day motorcycle crash have finally found a new home.

    The dogs -- Anacortes, Cedonia, Tacoma and Everett - -have been in an unidentified couple's home for about a week, says the Daily Herald. Kathy Deets, the owner of the Chicago Canine Club in Burr Ridge and the woman who's been trying to find a home for the dogs, said she hopes to make the adoption final next week.

    Mike Kelm, 55, and his wife Sue, 54, of Schaumburg, were killed when their motorcycle was struck by a car just outside of Palatine.

    "Their last wish was that they could be adopted together and they are an interesting little pack," said Deets.

    The new owners hadn't been dog owners, so Deets is giving them a short time period to adjust.

    "They didn't have any dogs," Deets said. "So we are just making sure they are comfortable."

    If everything works out, the dogs will live in a home similar to the one they had left.
