    We went to finalize Prim’s adoption Saturday and stopped at the new Dairy Queen next door on the way out.  Because they built near a Petsmart, this Dairy Queen offers dog treats if they see a dog in the car.  I […]

  • ThumbnailI’m going to have to stop fostering for a little while, so I can housebreak my lastest foster failure.  It was pretty clear after the first day I wasn’t going to give this one up.  We still haven’t agreed on a […]

  • ThumbnailThis is my new foster dog Classy, or my new dog Gizmo or Bitsy or whatever name we finally agree on.  Personally, I like the name Prim, but my husband doesn’t and we’ll have to agree on whatever we end up calling […]

  • Gina wrote a new post, Audi Update 4 months ago

    ThumbnailMy sweet little foster boy’s potention adoption has officially fallen through.  I can’t say I was surprised by the call, but it does still surprise me anyone thinks people can catch heartworm disease from a dog.  […]

  • ThumbnailI thought I had found a new home for my foster dog Audi.  I met with a really nice lady yesterday, who brought her daughter and dog to see if everyone got along.  She asked about Audi’s vision and house-training, […]

  • ThumbnailEvery dog should be as easy to medicate as my Grace.  I’ve never had to push pills down her throat or wrap them in cheese or bread.  As it happens, heartworm medicine tastes good, but since I’m using the pills […]
