After Fanny was adopted, I had no one to take to the beginning agility class. Charlie and Bogey were too shy, Ziggy had already passed the beginner class, and Chloe was still undergoing heartworm treatment. So that left me with two options - take Jefferson, or get a new foster dog. I considered Jefferson - after all, he's very energetic, but he's also got the memory of a goldfish and the coordination of a giraffe on roller skates. So new foster dog it was!
I brought home Lindsay, a sweet four year old dog who had been waiting at the shelter for a long time. She is another one of those rare brilliant, perfect dogs. Already house-trained, good with other dogs, cats, and kids, and extremely affectionate. She caught up with the rest of the dogs in the agility class very quickly, and she's been wonderful at home. Since our trainer's name is Lynsey, I have nicknamed Lindsay "Zee" to make things less confusing. Zee has been here a couple of weeks now, and she's done really well at adoption events and at obedience classes. She's learned to sit, lie down, come when called, and we're now working on staying in place. Zee is a wonderful dog and whomever adopts her will be very lucky to have her.
In addition to Zee, I also brought home another FIV+ cat. This one looks nothing like Merlin either, but at least this time I was able to recognize that right away.
Midnight is a great cat. He has very thick plush fur, and he loves to be petted. He gets along great with the other cats, although he's not such a big fan of dogs. He's actually much cuter than his picture looks, but I'm not so good at photographing black cats. Especially when they want nothing more than to rub against the camera and won't stay in place for a picture. Cats are much harder to teach to "stay" than dogs.
So that's it for the new fosters, at least for now. For latest news and previews of soon-to-be foster pets, visit me on Facebook.
