Yesterday I teased that there was ONE MORE new addition to my backyard…
And here it is! So I’m NOT promising this fantastic face a forever home yet–but I AM promising to give this dog-ownership-business a shot for a week and see how the furry friend and I hit it off. Nothing’s official, so I’m currently at a “foster home” status. If I decide I’m *gulp* ready for commitment…great. If not? I’ll have given her a home and some socializing for a few days–win/win.
She’s the dog I was interested in a week or so ago but lost to a quicker-on-the-draw bratty 12 year old (who in all fairness I have never met and is probably very sweet and not bratty). The family decided it wasn’t the right time for a dog after all, so this young lady ended up coming home with me.
This feisty Mountain Feist is here for the week, jogging by my side, racing around my yard (and already figuring out how to get out of my fence), and seeing if she can work her way into my heart–it’s a pretty solitary place, but I’m trying to give her a fair chance. Because, really, just look at her!
Do you own a dog? Ever fostered a pet?
