It took time, but around August of 2015 we decided that it might be time to welcome another four legged family member in to our home. Things weren’t like they used to be though, life was a lot busier, and to be honest we didn’t really agree on what to look for, so we decided to foster. Since then, we’ve had nine dogs come through the house, each of them teaching us something new along the way.
Monty and Switch, 8 week old mixed breed brothers, were only with us for 6 days as their adoption papers had already been submitted. They taught me that maybe puppies aren’t so bad after all.
Kuta, the new mom who arrived the day after weaning her litter, came from a spay and neuter clinic in Onion Lake where over 70 animals were surrendered. Kuta taught me a little about dog physiology, and how nice it is to have a relaxed personality in your life.
Trixie, the young Pitbull mix, taught me not to always be a sucker for the “urgent” cases, and to read between the lines of a carefully worded biography. She also taught me that a 55lbs dog can jump a 7’ tall fence with very little effort, repeatedly.
