Fostering dogs

Our family has finally taken the plunge into fostering dogs and so far it has been a wonderful experience. It gives us a taste of living with dogs again, all with none of the financial or long-term responsibility, and while getting to help a great dog rescue.

Our first foster dog was a ~4 year old cocker spaniel/poodle mix who was sweet as could be. Her foster name was Corky and her newly adopted name is Honey (very suiting). Here are some photos of her at her Happy Adoption Party that Lily threw for her with some neighbors.

Our next foster dog is Bean, and what a little bean he is. This 10 week old chihuahua puppy is adorable and exhausting and the size of our pet rats but as fast as a field mouse. When he’s not in his puppy play yard he is zipping from room to room snarfing up all the stuff my vacuum apparently missed like a tiny little Rooma on amphetamines.

But oh, is he cute. So far the adoption process wasn’t too rough on Lily for Corky. I hope the same goes for Bean so we can continue to foster dogs like this without damaging her emotionally. It’s been a great experience though so far, for sure!
