New Fosters

Oh my word, where have I been? So much has happened, so little time to write it all down!. Let's just dive right in. We fostered this litter of kitties over Memorial Day weekend while their regular foster person was out of town.

They were 5 weeks old then, weaned from bottle feeding (thank goodness), and were quite fun to foster. All of them were extremely social and loved being held. Cleaning the litter box continually was probably the only tough thing about it. I'm sure they will be adopted the second they become available. How can anyone resist those faces?

Currently, we are fostering a lovely little dog named Mandy. She is a lab-mystery mix, and she was found in a barn with her 8 puppies. Our shelter's wonderful administrative director fostered them all at her house until all 8 puppies were adopted. Now, it's Mandy's turn!

Cabana is fine with Mandy, not necessarily thrilled, but probably much happier with another dog in the house, rather than the 4 kittens (Cabana was actually a little scared of the kitties!).

Mandy loves chasing balls, but other than that, Mandy is a newbie. Cabana has helped teach her about crate training, house training, walking nicely on leash, and sitting when asked.

Even though Mandy has been spayed, she must still have lots of yummy estrogen smells coming out of her because all the male dogs at the park get googly around her. She doesn't care about them, though. She just wants me to throw her ball.

Mandy is probably only about 1 year old, so she's just a puppy herself. Playing fetch is helping Mandy get back to her girlish figure. Even though she's had a hard life so far, it amazes me what a nice dog Mandy is. Like Cabana, she's just inherently polite. She rarely barks, doesn't get up on the furniture without being invited, doesn't counter surf, isn't destructive, and just wants to be in the same room with me. No one taught her those things. That's just who she is. And she deserves an awesome family and home.
