I am currently living in a foster home. It's pretty nice. It is certainly nicer than where I came from anyway. My foster mom found me when I came to her grandma's house in town. I was very pregnant and had decided that the shed in her backyard would be a great place to raise my pups. I didn't know how right I was. The sweet lady took really good care of us until the pups were up and running around. That's when foster mom came and my life changed completely.
When I lived in town I was just running the streets. I had owners, but they didn't really take care of me. That's why I went somewhere else to have my pups. I knew they weren't going to help me and happily I found someone that would.
Anyway, when I got to foster mom's house, boy was I surprised. There are so many animals here it is amazing. There are lots of dogs and they are all so nice to me. They are not at all like some of the dogs in town that I had to protect my pups from. Also, there are loads of cats and goats. I had never seen a goat before, but they seemed pretty nice.
My pups and I got our own pen, so I could keep taking good care of them. They were about four or five weeks old when we got here, so they still needed me. After about three weeks foster mom said it was time for all of us to say goodbye. My babies were leaving for their very own forever homes. She said someone had sent in an application on me, but then backed out. She also said she was sorry, she wished I had a forever home to go to as quickly as my babies did.
It sure was quiet without the babies, but I soon made friends with a big dog named Pup. She is quite old, but she works here keeping an eye on the goats. She showed me all around the place and I had a good time being a goat dog with her. After some time of helping around the farm there was an accident with one of the goats. Foster mom says she doesn't think I had anything to do with it, but just in case I needed to stay in a pen.
I didn't really want to be locked up, but Pup walked with me to the pen and told me it would be okay. She was right. There are three really nice dogs living with me now. Little Dude and Steve are big buddies and they just love having me around. Chloe was so tickled that she couldn't stop hopping and kissing me. She is pretty scared of people and I am trying to help her with that. She is a really sweet girl and made me feel very welcome, so I figure it's the least I can do to repay her kindness.
Foster life has been pretty sweet so far. I've gone from dodging cars to running through the woods with my friends. I've watched as all of my sweet babies went to wonderful homes. I've even seen some of my doggie and kittie friends here go to new homes. There are a lot of really wonderful pets out there looking for a home and I am glad that I found some people that would keep me safe until I can find mine.
