Have you ever followed people on Instagram who post beautiful photos of their dogs in lush forests or on towering mountains? No, I’m not self-promoting. My Florida dog has never seen a mountain. And if we want to avoid death by mosquito, we steer clear of forests, too. Which is really a shame. However, we do follow some of these lovely dogs online, and get major wanderlust. Thanks a lot, guys!
I ran across something awesome on tumblr yesterday, just in time for ‘We Want It Wednesday’! Seriously. Are you prepared for this?
Isn’t that precious?
But I’m sure I know what you’re thinking. Yeah, Newfies are nice, but I prefer ______. Fear not, my friends! They’ve got you covered.
Yeah, I’ve already picked out some I want. And a couple to buy one of my besties. WHO JUST HAD A BIRTHDAY SO NOW I HAVE TO WAIT! Boo.
In my time, I’ve fallen off many wagons. Figuratively. I haven’t been around that many literal wagons. Curse my suburban upbringing!
So as I said before, I offered to temp. foster that handsome Golden mix, and another woman (girl? lady?) offered to take him as well. Unsurprisingly, the rescue asked if one of us might tackle another dog looking for a foster home so we could both be utilized. She said “Border Collie mix” and I was afraid for my life.
I got so lucky with Lana. If she really is a Border mix, she doesn’t act like it. Thank the gods…
But, they said she was sweet and submissive and a fairly new mommy, which makes me think she’ll be manageable. The flip side is now I’m tempted to offer to take on a puppy, too. Alas, I only have 1 crate so I’d best keep myself in check.
Quick side note, if you want to have a matching foster, two of the puppies still need a place to go!
I’ll keep you updated. And I have an emotional post that’s been brewing, waiting for the right time to be written. That will come soon, too. I’ll need as much advice as you all are willing to give.
In the mean time, my question for you is this: would you ever consider taking on multiple fosters at once? Like a momma and her puppy or more than one puppy?
