I can't say enough how much I love getting updates from the adopters of my fosters. I've spent time with these dogs, house-training, working on manners, grooming and giving them a lot of attention. All of them come in seeking loving attention. While some come from homes where their basic needs were met, and even some come in well-loved, but their owner died or moved to a home where they couldn't keep their dog (those are usually older dogs and I can't foster most older dogs because I have three sets of steps in my townhouse), most of these fosters have been strays or neglected dogs.
While I know I'm going to be passing them on to great families, I do get attached to them. Some more than others, yes, but all of them hold a special place in my heart.
Here's a recent picture of Sophie. She's in the 2013 calendar, too! The calendar is also a cookbook.You can find/order that here:
