You Guys are Awesome

Thank you for the kind words and supportive comments you left on my post yesterday. I did not mean to sound like I was ready to quit, although I can see how saying "I hate fostering" could be misconstrued. Actually I just wanted to post about the mundane details of fostering, and I just happened to have a day with more "downs" than "ups". Yesterday started off the same way - with two phone calls from previous adopters who couldn't afford their vet bills. But by the end of the day, it was totally an "up" day. Because Shadow was adopted!!
"I'm outta here..."

She was my foster dog for only 24 hours before she found a home. I spent two hours with her new family last night, talking about what she needed and answering their questions. It'll take a few days for her to adjust to yet another new home, but in the end I know she will be really happy and very much loved. And that is why I love fostering.

And just to keep it an "up" day, I shut all the cats in the two cat rooms, and made Remi sleep in the living room last night.
"Don't mind me - I'll just sleep here all alone and stay out of your way."

Hey Remi and Foster mom! Nice to meet you! It's a very cool thing you do, the fostering. My mom would like to do that when we get a bigger place.
