Our Fabulous Weekend (A Guest Post by Kirsten the Foster Dog)

Hi everyone, its Kirsten here.  Our foster mom is exhausted from a busy weekend, so she's letting us foster pets post this week so she can take a break.  This is me: 

I am here to tell you about our Fabulous Weekend. It was amazing - we had so much fun!!  On Saturday morning we got up early and went to Petco - this gigantic store with lots of fun things to sniff and people to greet.  We stayed there for hours and hours.  Me and my sister Rachel were there, and our foster brother Ziggy, and lots of other dogs and even some cats!  Some nice people came and met me, but then they ended up spending a lot of time with my friend Daisy.  This is Daisy:

Then those people left, and a little while later, our foster mom said it was time to go.  I thought we had to go back home, but instead, we went to a different store called PetSmart.  I was so excited.  There were even MORE people at that store, and lots and lots of doggies.  Rachel was kind of scared of the other doggies and she kept barking at them, but I thought it was fun to meet so many new friends.  We stayed there for a long time, and finally our foster mom said it was time to go home.  So I helped her pack up the car and all the crates and supplies, and then we all went back home.  When we got home she put Ziggy and me and Rachel in the backyard while she unloaded the car, but I knew she'd need my help, so I squeeeezed through the fence and went out to help her.  Then Rachel squeeeeezed through the fence behind me, but instead of helping, she ran off to bark at the neighbor's doggy.  Foster Mom didn't seem very happy about that.  But she was sure happy to see me!  She clapped her hands and called me and ran inside with me - but then she left me inside and ran right back out to get Rachel.  I guess she didn't realize I just wanted to help her.  Anyway, once she came back with Rachel, she told us it was nap time.  So that was the end of our fun on Saturday.

However, Sunday was even BETTER!  We went BACK to PetSmart.  Foster Mom left Ziggy at home because she said she couldn't handle PetSmart with TWO difficult dogs two days in a row.  She couldn't decide if she should leave Ziggy or Rachel at home.  I was just glad she wasn't considering leaving me at home - adoption events are the best thing EVER!   So we went to PetSmart and Rachel barked at all the other dogs that went by.  Sometimes I helped her, because I do like to do whatever my sister does - but the rest of the time I did my best to get belly rubs.  This is how I do it.  I spot a friendly person, and I do this:

And then this

And then this

And almost every time they stop and give me a belly rub!  It's just GREAT! 

Those people who had met Daisy on Saturday came back on Sunday and 'dopted her!  So everyone was very happy for her.  Also there were NINE little puppies there looking for homes and three of them got 'dopted too - so everyone was happy 'bout that too.  I met some nice people on Sunday and Foster Mom said they want to 'dopt me too!  So she's going to take me out to their house to meet them later this week and maybe I'll get 'dopted and live with them forever and ever.

Hey there, you did a grrrreat job with your furst blog!! My mom would give you an A for that, except that now she is BEtired and she doesn't do that anymore.
Wowie.. you have a furend named Daisy too??? My furend didn't get dopted. She lives with her mom and dad about 87 miles down the road.
Nice training of the two leggers. They catch on quick... when they get the right motivation.

Yay Daisy has a home!!!!!! That just makes me all kinds of HAPPY. Don't worry Kirsten, you're time is coming. Now about Ziggy...does you think Foster Mom lefts him behind cuz her truely loves him and wants him to stay? Ok, guess not. I t was worth a shot.
My dad made our fence squeeze through proof so we don't gets to go see our neighbors.

Kari in WeHo said...

wow you are awesome at the whole belly rub thing!

Erika said...

Kirsten sounds great, I'm sure she will find a new home really fast especially since she has great people training powers. I'm leaning towards the same idea that Puddles is, maybe there was an ulterior motive to Ziggy staying home haha

It was fun to hear from you, Kirsten! That was a busy weekend, and I'll bet your foster Mom is very tired, but we are so happy to hear the good news for so many. We really hope that new home works out well for you, too! The Country Corgis
