She’s really a gazelle

Our foster dog, Taffy, learned a new trick.  She is able to jump/climb over our chain link fence.

Does this look like the face of a dog that would do such a thing?   She jumped the fence as I watched her bound through our neighbors pasture like a freaking gazelle.

Here she is looking pensive.  Thoughts of running through lush grasses and wading through murky, stinky ponds.

Lola

Our foster dog, Wayne, didn’t work out here and had to be moved to a different foster home.  In his place we got Lola.  She is a shephard/lab mix and is about four years old.  She is a very sweet girl, except she doesn’t really care for the company of other dogs.  She tolerates our two hounds, but everyday there is some growling going on.

Lola loves a good belly rub.

She is such a pretty girl and hopefully someone will see her face and just fall in love.

It didn’t take her long to find “doggie TV”…ie: watching squirrels out the front window.

We are now foster parents….sort of

We made the decision to help The Animal Rescue Alliance, (http://www.tarasdream.org/), by fostering dogs.  Yesterday I went and picked up a small Rottweiler mix named James.  He is about 2 years old and full of what seems to be endless energy.  Hopefully he will find his forever home for the holidays.  He is a sweet boy and deserves it.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
