So, I am going on Sunday to get Josee the Chinese Crested which I will be fostering and now I got a call from my coordinator in Oklahoma and she may have another little girl for me to foster.  This is pretty exciting but a little scary too.  We have 4 dogs that are ours.  Prince is a Yorkie, Pookie is a Shih Tzu, Trixie is a Chihuahua/Poodle mix and Hannah is a Standard Poodle.  They are very good dogs.  

Fostering is great because we are able to take dogs out of terrible situations, give them a lot of love and training and then re-home them with a new family that will take care of them.  I have heard that a lot of foster parents “fail” at fostering.  That means that they end up falling in love with the dog and adopting it themselves.  I haven’t done that yet but my husband is as soft as I am when it comes to the dogs.  My son’s are ok with it but they aren’t crazy about my hobby.  

I will of course post pictures when I get them and try to keep up with the happenings.  A lot of times when a dog has been in a bad situation they have problems with housebreaking, etc.  We have to work through all of that.  It becomes really interesting since I am a Human Resources Director and work at least 50 hours a week and I am taking college classes as well.  I never get bored.

At least the boys are old enough to take care of themselves...Robert is 21 and going to college, Tim is 18 in high school.  Anyway more this week-end when I get the little 4 legged babies.
