House Guest...


Do you know this dog? (FYI: the white things he is laying on are body pillows. 2 of these fit perfectly in the bottom of a crate, and at a cost of $8 a piece, can't beat them!)

I have signed up to foster and this young man is my first go at it. I must say, he has been perfect for more than one reason. The first and most important one for me, I cannot fail because he is already adopted! Failing is something that I feel that is bound to happen should I continue to foster... only time will tell. Anywho, he and Blue have a great relationship and he seems to know that this is Blue's home. If he gets a bit too rambunctious, Blue sets him straight with a few barks and growls and they are good to go.

He is quite the card... I have read about it, but this is the first hound I have witnessed that 'smiles' when he is excited. He wrinkles up his nose, shows all of his teeth, it is as if he is getting read to growl. Roommate saw this and thought he was about to get bitten, I found this hilarious!

He is going to be great for his family! He crates well, he listens, he is receptive to correction, he is just a really good boy! Oh, he is also a great alarm clock at about 6 am each morning (as if I needed another one!)

I wish I would have had the camera ready yesterday, he had his first go round with a stuffy. It is always fun to watch or hear about a hound finding out how fun the stuffed animals are. I say goodbye to him this coming weekend, we will get our fill of him until he is gone.

This is 'Anything I Cando' by the way...

It's such a fun experience, isn't it? My girls always love introducing a new foster to the ways of the world, but they are just as happy to see them go!

Good job keepin' it safe...but your next foray may not be as easy!

Are you doin' the hound haul?

Not sure about the hound haul, I usually always throw my name in the hat for the hauls... I have to give this boy back at some point this weekend so this may decide for me...
