Fostermama has been passing along updates all week from the parents of the foster dogs she had before me. I realized that since we’ve all at some point had this here same mama, I think that makes us halfsies! Half-brothers and half-sisters that is.
Former foster half-sister Zabora, now known as Medivka, recently became a big sis to a HUMAN baby! While that sounds like my absolute worst nightmare, I wish her the best of luck
listening to that screaming all the time enjoying life with her new sibling. I know fostermama misses Z/M a lot, so this update was super exciting.
THEN she got a few wonderful emails from the forever mom of my former foster half-brother Baxter. His mama was gushing about how well he’s doing, including this happy tail:
“Ok, so in the same vein, I have to tell you that Bax is just totally becoming a part of our little unit. He reveals more and more of his personality every day. And it’s not just me saying it. Diane’s noticing it too. It’s been very gradual and I feel like he was just kind of hanging out and observing us for the first five or six weeks, but he has really opened up and is just being so incredibly sweet that it’s like being around a totally different dog than just a month ago! We don’t have him crated anymore, just separated, and he’s doing great. He’s a very sweet and loving little guy :)”
When fostermama got that email she did a big happy dance and stared at these pictures for awhile, especially that first one. Even I will admit that is one handsome devil. Did you know I actually met the Bax when he first came into the shelter over the summer, before I went to my most recent attempt at a forever home? We took some dog test together and both passed – musta been because we totally ignored each other. That was the first time fostermama ever met Baxter too, but on that day she had no idea how much he would affect her life.
She talks a lot about how she misses that dog, then I nudge my nose into her hand and remind her that I’M here and I love her just as much as he did. She smiles and gives me a hug and seems happy again.
To top it all off, my almost sorta kinda former foster half-sister Curious Georgia’s forever parents have a friend that just took in the famous Stevie Wonder as a foster – go check them out and see how she’s doing!
What a great week of happy updates and team work!
While fostermama misses all of her former fosters, I know she is still happy to have me around. I keep her company every night on the couch while we blog. She is going to miss me a lot when I leave, just like she does the rest. That’s not stopping us from searching for my forever family though! If you know someone out there looking for a laid pack pooch who likes snuggling and playing in the yard, have their people call my people. . .
