.The place where saying no is not an option.
Check it out Marysdogs.com. Mary writes with depth and heart and soul and lots and lots of talent.
Mary's foster dog journey got me to thinking about why I have been involved in dog rescue for over 10 years, and as of late fostering dogs. I don't think I am quite as deep as Mary. For me it is much more basic.
My middle daughter has a keen eye and can meet a dog and size it accurately and quickly. Her first impressions have never been wrong. Watch out if Hannah doesn't like your dog!
My youngest, is my mini me. She loves all animals, and they love her. She goes over friend's houses and gives training suggestions to parents and kids on play dates. When the surprised Moms and Dads tell me about it, I find I always support her teachings. Maybe she goes a bit heavy on spins and bows, but Heather is after all only 8 years old.
I know I have been saying this for a while, but after Mango finds her home, I am taking a break from fostering to spend quality time with Charlee. It was been 2 months since her toe tumor erupted and she has been very tolerant of our revolving door, but her soulful looks tell me she needs a break to.
We'll be back.
Mango will be listed for adoption by next weekend. Lucky for us, she is issue free and has been quite an easy foster. Easy on the eye to don't you think?
