So here she goes:
Thanks so much to Julia for having me here today as part of this fabulous series on her amazing blog! I’m so excited to be on one of my favorite blogs talking about one of my favorite things today.
There’s Gavroche the orange tabby:
Gable the shaggy sheepdog:
But today I’m going to focus on our two latest additions, Fiesta and Rory, and on our experiences fostering dogs, which is how they came to join our family.
We showed a little more willpower the next time we tried fostering. The group my mom works with had recently branched out from being just a Cocker Spaniel rescue to include all small dogs. Working with my mom is great, because it’s very easy to say no to her ;). It’s a small group, and we have a lot of say in what dogs we foster.
Gretchen’s story speaks to me in so many ways. While I hear the “you can’t save them all” from my husband all the time and it drives me insane, I look up to Gretchen for being able to help like this. My husband would never agree to do this with me but I also have the tendency to collect living things. And Rory is exactly what I have been dreaming of in a dog. I want him in the worst way. I have mentioned my love for scruffy terriers before 🙂
I also can’t believe that the euthanasia rate is 70-90%! That is completely heart breaking and such a waste of precious life. When will humans learn that pets aren’t disposable pieces of trash. It gets me all upset.
Make sure to head on over to Gretchen’s blog by clicking HERE. She is quite the funny writer! And she just updated her home tour too (click HERE to see). I can’t wait to meet her this summer in person at Haven.
Happy Friday my friends and talk to you on Monday.
