  1. Awww Charlie, you just gave me a sweet remembory. Thank you. When Daddiman used to fill the kibble reserve, he would ask Kyle if he wanted to go "grocery shopping". Kyle would stand there drooling patiently waiting while Daddiman filled it. He would drop a handful of kibbles for Kyle to snarf up.
  2. Has she been tested for hookworm? The noisy tummy and pudding poop sounds like hookworm- just my experience, I'm not a vet. I ordered Pyrantel from Amazon and dose every foster the day I bring them into my home as well as my own dogs. Then again 10-14 days later. Their tummies do get very upset so they don't eat or drink like normal. I make ground turkey with either well cooked rice, oatmeal, or pasta. (whatever I have on hand) and try small portions throughout the day.
  3. I just look at it as survival of the fittest. There were 3 greyhounds in the fenced yard. Bunny still decided to climb under the fence and join the dogs. It had many opportunities to get out of the yard.
  4. Muzzles never stopped my dogs . They just pounded the poor stupid bunny to death with the muzzle.
  5. Ms Lila, Ms Lila!! Happy one half Birfday ! Tell your Mistress that you should have a McD's Parfay. Dey are da bomb!! Your frend acrost the beeg lake, Hope O yeah and Mummy too.
  6. I'm so sorry you lost your beautiful girl. She was a warrior. Run free Beka. We will miss your beautiful self.
  7. Thanks for posting this! I see the name of one of our adoptable hounds. I'll have to let the foster family know.
  8. Exercise trainer. They thoughtfully move my shoes, gloves, various items so I have to run around looking for everything.
  9. You should check the websites of adoption groups in your area. They will be more than happy to help you out.
  10. Just thought I'd throw this out there...We have a foster family who was having some trouble with the crate. She attached an ex-pen to the crate and left the door open. He was still confined but wasn't shut in the crate. He has settled right down. They do have 2 other dogs though that are free in the same room.
  11. It is hard to let some fosters go. I learned to sit down with each dog when they first come here and have a conversation with them (more for me than them ). I tell them that I am just a step in the journey to their forever home and I will do my best for them. Only 2 have stayed with us. It is awesome to see them pick their family and really blossom. Good luck!
  12. I take Chris's point about the "bomb proof". I didn't tell the whole story and should have used the word easy. That girl is a return and 6 yrs. old. So she came here knowing home life. Most of her transition was just learning her new normal, and me looking for anything that needed work.
  13. If you are not sure, why not just continue to foster? You are helping get a dog to it's forever home, learning more while you wait for your dog to come along. I lost my heart girl last year, and our boy this year. I am also looking to adopt again. I currently have 3 fosters. One is older and is bomb proof; one is 3 going on 1-1/2, is afraid of certain noises and can't be trusted for 30 seconds; the 3rd is a goofy boy who likes to steal things. I don't plan on adopting any of them because they are just not my dogs. I will know when the right one comes along. In the meantime, I am enjoying them and getting them ready for their new families. No downside to that.

    I'm so sad to see that Lexie has started her next journey. She was such an awesome dog! I loved all her pictures, she was amazing. Lexie, thank you for bringing smiles and happiness to so many, you will be so very missed. Hugs to your family.
