Foster for a Day

This is Baby Girl. 


My life has been relatively peaceful, fun, and stress-free of late--enough of that shit. Baby Girl was not happy in the shelter, so time to take on another foster.

She was surrendered by a loving family due to landlord trouble. She was an emotional support animal for the mom of the family but that didn't matter to the landlord...so off to the shelter for poor Baby Girl.  



I brought Baby Girl home after a car ride in which she stood on my lap the whole time. Like a moron, I was a bit too hasty with allowing her to meet my dogs, and she and Dahlia were not too keen on each other. After a bit of a scuffle, I separated them and resolved to keep Baby Girl in a crate or in the back yard while she was with me. 

I was in the midst of figuring out how to manage that when I received an email from the daughter of Baby Girl's family, who had moved into a new dog-friendly apartment! And that was that. 

After a night of cuddling with Florian in the guest room, 


Baby Girl was reunited with her family. 



She was so happy she didn't know what to do, and all us humans were in tears.

What a nice little foster interlude! Good luck Baby Girl! You are a sweet girl who deserves all the love in the world.

  6. Different mutts react less to the creature than the circumstance and will take off alone a feline that sits still, yet pursue and assault one that moves. This is particularly valid for puppies that are kept outside. https://www.homyden.com/skunk-control-identify-prevent-get-rid-skunks/
