Molly's Out!

Fire is going out and so is Molly. She sleeps in the strangest positions that odd girl.

Bed Hog!

Molly's foster brother wasn't in much of a sharing mood. He wanted to claim Molly's bed and his own. Bed hog!

Dear Foster

Courtney Kautz wanted to share this posting with the group!

Dear Foster,

I’ve had you for awhile now, in my home, on my couch, on my lap, with family and friends, in my bed, and most importantly in my heart. I’ve gotten to know your personality, likes and dislikes and all of your sweet quirks. I’ve watched your confidence grow, and I am in awe at your complete joy of living for the moment. As I look ahead to when you will meet your adoptive family, I am over-come with emotion.

As your foster Mom, my goal is to pull you from a dire situation and to show you what it’s like to live in a home full of fun and love. I set out to learn everything about you so that I could use it to help find you the perfect “fur-ever” family. As your foster Mom, I give you love and tenderness, as well as the direction you need to become the best dog you can be. I didn’t intend on falling in love with you…but I did!

I have watched you discover the joy of couches, a peanut butter Kong, fetch, and running free. I have been amazed at the speed with which you discovered outside was the best for potty time and have been overjoyed to see how happy you are meeting new people, playing with dogs large and small, and discovering that rain puddles are obviously meant for running and jumping in. And most of all I’ve watched you dispel myths of your so-called “bad behaviour” with a little love and exercise. 

Seeing you happy, confident, secure and content now, makes me so very proud but also brings me to the hard part. When I send you to your new fur-ever home, how can I ever explain to you that you’re not being abandoned again? That I would love more than anything to keep you, to watch you grow old, and to make you this happy for all the days of your life. So if you’re so happy with me and me with you, how could I ever give you up?

I’m so happy that you have a family that can’t wait to meet you, but at the same time it hurts me to even think about sending you to a new home. I am learning that this is the agony of being a foster parent that everyone had warned me about. As your foster Mom I want what is truly best for you, whether it be a home with a fur-sibling because you love them so, or with someone that wants to run with you daily because that is what you need. It is my job to let you go to a new home that is the most perfect fit for you so that I can continue to pull other dogs from desperate situations and help them as I did you. 

Please don’t think that I gave up on you.
Please don’t think that I abandoned you.
Please continue to live in the moment.
Please remember me, but please don’t miss me! 

I worry like this because once you are adopted I no longer have control over what happens to you. I must have blind faith that your new family will love you as much as I do, and will give you even more than I ever could. Know that your foster Mom loves you and that you will forever have a home with me, that I hope you will never ever need. I know you will have a fantastic life, and even though I wish I could be a part of it daily, you need your new family, they need you, and I need to continue fostering.

I hope that you can understand this. I hope that you are happy to share the life you’ve had with me with other dogs in need. Most of all, I hope that you are as happy with your new family as you are with me. I will think of you often, I’m so glad you came into my life, and what I was able to give to you will never compare to what you have given back to me. You will always in part belong to me and my heart.

I love you. Your foster Mom, Wendy aka The Dane Dame Xo

Hercules Showing Off

Aren't I handsome!  My foster mom bought me some new sweaters, I'm modeling one of them for you.  Mom says I don't have much hair so need the extra warmth, plus it helps protect my delicate skin from the occasional scratch or itch.  Personally, I just want to look fashionable, but it makes Abigail jealous 'cause Mom doesn't buy her nice clothes, Abigail gets the natural look 'cept when it's cold outside.

So long for now, time to rest.

Vegas In His Forever Home

​stated that it took almost ​​their​​ing ​even ​​ing​ ​them​​fast ​also wanted to share a huge breakthrough with Vegas today. He has allowed us to finally "cuddle" with him. I read a post somewhere that someone1 year before rescue started to becommore affectionate &cuddle with. I prayed I wouldn't have to wait that long - but knew it would happen! So I've posted a few pics of Vegas being up close and personal with us. As I write this he is laying on me curled up asleep.

​ I guess we can say that he finally feels like he is in his forever home.​ 

​! It's been a an amazing journey with him thus far.  Again I thank NEBTR for the opportunity to bea foster mom & meet Vegas.

Update on Mac, Formerly Zeke

Here are some pictures that Curt Brand sent me of my very first foster Zeke now Mac. He is doing so great and I knew he would. It was the perfect family for him. He is the one I miss the most. Such a beautiful boy.

Sarah is Making Progress

We are making progress.  Finally….. I caught her initiating play with my 4 mo. Old GSD today. They are now best buds. I could not get a picture of them playing but I did get one of them curled up out in the sun right next to each other. Again …. She is a work in progress.  I just love this little girl.  Uh oh.

Adoptable Pup Wishlist! BUDDY

Buddy is a sweet 2-year-old boy who loves to have his belly rubbed. He's a bit of a tank at 35 pounds of love, and is doing great at his foster mom Jill's house! He just needs a few things to get his journey started. If you have a spare minute and a few bucks, won't you send Buddy something from his list? He promises to post thank-you pictures!!!!

Molly's spot

Molly found her winter spot...and no other dog better try to take it.
