I currently have two new foster puppies. Leroy is a five-month-old Great Dane mix. He is scared of new things, and for some reason has a special fear of mops. Since I have a lot of fosters right now, I spend a lot of time walking around with a mop, which leads him to spend a lot of time chasing the mop and barking. But when he’s not chasing mops, he is very sweet.
"You're not hiding a mop behind your back, are you?"
My other new foster puppy is a two-month-old pit bull mix named Lulu. She is deaf, and she loves to explore. She explores so well that I have trouble finding where she went, and since she’s deaf I can’t call her. I have to wait until she appears again from whatever fun spot she found to explore – like under the couch, or under the deck, or under the blankets. She is a tricky little explorer.
Lulu started off this morning as a nice clean white puppy.

Then we went outside and she went exploring.

I introduced Leroy and Lulu to each other and both wanted to play together, but Leroy didn’t realize that he was just a little bit bigger than Lulu.
Can you see a giant dusty paw print on Lulu’s side? That’s from Leroy. There’s a slight size differential there.
