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.

Taffy

It has been decided that our newest foster dog’s name will be Taffy.  As you can see she is a beautiful girl.

No Name Yet

Saturday we went and picked up our newest foster.  She was found abandoned with her seven puppies.  Her pups are old enough that they went to separate foster homes.  As of yet, we are still trying to come up with a good name for her.

Daydreaming About Her Forever Home

Saturday Lola and I attended an adoption event in Belton, Mo at the Petsmart.  She always gets very nervous at these events and after about an hour turns her back on everyone in an attempt to hide. However, on this fine day, there was a nice young couple that came in anticipating a meet and greet with another foster dog.  Well, as it turned out, the other foster dog was not able to attend.  Lola summoned up her courage and showed them what a great dog she is.  Hopefully we will hear from them sometime this week.

Our Newest Foster

I was contacted yesterday by The Animal Rescue Alliance, (T.A.R.A), in reference to them desperately needing someone to foster an elderly dog. We have fostered for them a couple of times in the past, and let’s just say, after reading this dogs story I immediately stepped up.  This old boy was found tied to a fence by Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City.  After trying to get animal control to pick up the dog…which obviously didn’t happen, a T.A.R.A volunteer took him in.

This dog just breaks my heart!  He is only about 40 pounds and has a severe ear and eye infection.  Thankfully he is heartworm negative!  I will probably be picking him up this evening.  He doesn’t have a name yet, so stay tuned for updates.

Discovery

Our newest foster dog, Lulu, has discovered that dog toys are fun.

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
