Another Day, Another Dog

Well I did it. Maybe I am the Crazy Dog Lady. I just can't help myself. You probably know that my wonderful sister, Barb, and I volunteer at Hope Rescues. And you probably also know that we have both fostered dogs in the past. Barb fostered Happy Gilmore and more recently Snickers, who both have Forever Homes now.  I have been a foster mom for Tumbleweed and for Jenny, but then we adopted Jenny so she's all ours now. It's been a while since I've fostered anyone. I don't know why I felt I needed to do it again. Maybe I got too complacent at not having another challenge. Maybe I thought I needed another 14 pounds of warm body weight added to my lap whenever I sit down. Maybe I was chilly and needed a little bit of fur to warm my toes. Maybe I got tired of not cleaning up pee. Maybe I just couldn't say no to this little guy because his mom died and now he's in a shelter with a bunch of big dogs.


Maybe I'm just a sucker for a sob story and good trick.

     


Isn't he sweet? I don't think Juneau likes him much, or Jenny for that matter. But the rest of us think he's freakin adorable. Well, okay, hubby isn't thrilled about the idea either, but he'll come around sooner or later...

Sunshinemeg said...

If I worked in a shelter, or volunteered, I would do the same. I think he is very sweet. Props to you for opening your home. Can't wait to get a dog one day.

What an adorable little fluff ball. I spent yesterday perusing the shelter website... I think you may be catching. :)

I wonder how many foster dogs are kept by the family? Sucker!!!

He is a cutie. I would also want to keep him. My cat,Tigger, also does the bear pose for treats. I will try to get a picture of it for us.

Crazy Charm said...

Aww! What a cutie! I think it's great that you're fostering.

AngelMay said...

YOU are a good person!

JW.BW said...

Oh wow!!! He has the same crazy look in his eye that my little dog has!! Too funny and too cute!! Little dogs are just DIFFERENT. Its been interesting me learning this since Ive only had boxers in my adult life until KATYBUGG came along. Lil dogs are just so funny. What a great thing for u to do~

♥ Braja said...

Awwww....I wanna name him! CAN I CAN I CAN I CAN I CAN I???? :)))

Michel said...

I call him jumpy. I seriously heart you pharmacist!!! A lady after my own heart - AND with access to drugs. Could you BE any better??

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Awwwww! How sweet are you? And how sweet is that little cutie?! :)

O said...

I agree - freaking adorable! Good on you

Smart Mouth Broad said...

He is so cute. And aren't you awesome for doing this. You're like the Michel of the free world. *wink*
And those hubbys, they are always the hard sell but if yours is anything like mine he eventually crumbles and becomes dog's best friend.

Jay said...

He IS cute. I don't know if I could foster. I would get too attached. Dogs rule! ;-)

marinik said...

soo cute, who could say no to that face :)

Little Ms Blogger said...

OMG he's so cute.

I can't imagine being a foster doggie parent because I'd end up keeping them all.

Gaston Studio said...

What a big heart you have! Thank you for fostering from the bottom of my doggy loving heart.

Loredana said...

Maybe it's because he's so damn cute and who can resist that?!

CatLadyLarew said...

Aw... he's so cute! I think my next dog should be a lap dog. 130 pounds of Golden Retriever just doesn't do as well on my lap.

McGillicutty said...

I am a slacker, look at me all the way down here at #29!!!! Cute dog and yes you're some kind of nut but he'll adore you for it. Sorry about the washer... sucks to be you.

Fragrant Liar said...

That one was too cute to pass up. No wonder you decided to foster again. I bow to your animal-loving spirit.
