Deep breath......

Things are crazy right now. In a good way I think though. I got Phoebe and Tinkerbell in last night. My wonderful husband ran a transport... slowly but surely getting him hooked on the dog rescue thing. LOL!

Phoebe and Tinkerbell are both going to foster to adopt homes until I am able to get them fixed. they have to come back, get fixed and then can officially be adopted.

I have someone coming to meet Marshmallow on Friday, Buster is getting picked up on Saturday by a past adopter.. this will be dog #3 and I think Buster would love living with them. I am talking to someone today at 1pm about Banjo. And um..... I think Ozzie is going to stay with the family that has been fostering him. I really like the family and Ozzie LOVES the kids.

I have someone else interested in Spencer. They are going to come next weekend, this weekend is too crazy for them. So, Spencer will probably end up being fostered with someone for a week. Which will be good for him. Poor dog has been through hell and back. I really think the "husband" in the family abused him.

Oh and someone is coming to look at Kiwi this weekend. That dog is so CUTE! The foster home said she is perfect!

Hmm what else is going on... we are getting a female in from Allen County. I think Andrea is saving her today. As for JRT's in shelters there is one more in Guernsey County I am trying to figure out how to get. I called but kept getting voice mail and so I sent an email. Hopefully someone will get back to me soon.

It is so great when I have so many approved applications but so hectic at the same time trying to figure out who is going to who and making appointments and all that stuff.

As for the lady who was nasty about the holiday card.... I still can't get it off my mind. I talked to the group leader who I was fostering for at the time and she said she called them and left a message but hasn't heard back.

I have been getting a lot of emails lately about people wanting to dump their dogs. A lot of dogs 10, 13, 14 years old. Believe this... I had an email from someone who wants to re home their 11 year old JRT because they are retired, the kids moved out of the house and they are just too busy for the dog??? OMG so when you were working and had kids you weren't busy?? What the heck. Just tell the truth you don't want a dog any more because you are bored with it.

I hate that people try to make up excuses for why they are dumping their dog. Like getting rid of the dog is in the best interest for the dog. Whatever, just tell the truth you are lazy and don't want a dog any more. I seriously would prefer the truth over a bunch of made up stuff. But whatever makes you sleep better at night I guess.

Now don't get me wrong there are plenty of reason that are totally legitimate but 95% of them are NOT!

Well wish me luck that I can get some of the dogs to FOREVER homes and maybe a few of the dogs living at my house to foster care so they can have more 1 on 1 attention.
