Oh absolutely. Bring on a million dead birds if it means he never rolls in fox shit again.
Human sick on our walk yesterday morning
I don’t have any dogs
Don’t rub it in
I don’t like rubbing things in.
Oh yes. She was a step ahead of me so got to it before I saw what it was. Heave.
Boo. She’s leaving in the morning to her new home. Three out of four of us have cried. Not sure we’re cut out for the fostering life!
Can only imagine how difficult it is and you are playing such a important role. Hopefully will be nice knowing shes having a new start.
Sorry if its a bit early but i don’t really know how these things work. Any idea when you may have a new arrival?
They offered us one already but I’m not sure the kids will cope with having to keep saying goodbye, so going to have a bit of a chat about it before we go again. They were fine with it in theory but I think the reality is a bit much for them.
It’s important that you do what’s right for your family of course, but I wonder if it might get a lot easier for them as you have more and they get used to the process? You could get a scrapbook or pin board and have a bit for each dog you foster with a picture and a bit about them so the kids can look at it and remember them all, and hopefully feel proud that they helped them find their forever home.
I wondered that too, if the first one is the hardest. She’s set a very high bar!
This is such a wonderful idea
Hope it goes ok today It’s good that you know she’s going to a lovely family and be super happy!
Thanks! When they collected her the rescue asked if we would want to adopt her if it didn’t work out. So they’ve said they’ll tell the new family it’s a two week trial and if they’re not committed to her they’ll let us know. Gives us two weeks break before we take another foster in at least. Kids are over it already, the heartless bastards
Temporary visitor number 2, emergency placement for the day
She was very scared of me, liked the kids and loved MrB.
Another one arriving tomorrow. It’s depressing how many dogs are needing homes already and lockdown hasn’t even lifted. Fortunately still plenty of people waiting to adopt them!
