Well, a lot has happened since my last entry. I have taken much longer than normal to recover from my spay surgery, because I had a lot of issues going on. I did not even start perking up and eating and acting normally until today. I still get a little edgy around Davey and Teddy, my foster brothers, but my foster sister Lilly got adopted today. Good for her - but she was so energetic she made me the most nervous!

I'd really like to stay here because I love my foster parents, and I'd hate to get disrupted again to move to my forever home. I know they are thinking hard about making me a permanent resident and they do love me. But, they want to continue to foster and have to be assured that I could handle the influx of new, anxious and scared dogs (like I was a week ago) coming here to live temporarily. I have made great progress and I am going to be a great canine companion for someone. I seem to be mostly uninterested in the cats, and I am showing less food agression with the other animals now that I am feeling better. I've started to play a little, chasing a squeaky ball and running short distances.

I still try to build a little nest in a confined space, with my toys around me. My very unpleasant past life conditions are still causing me some anxiety, but I've made so very much progress that over time my people hope I will be able to completely trust and feel safe. Make no mistake, though; even with my past issues, I'm a beautiful, sweet, loving dog and I'm just going to get better and better!.

We all took a long walk tonight, smelled something pungent the people called "skunk" but I thought of as "hmmmm, interesting" and I was good walking along next to my foster brothers.

That's all for tonight, later gators! Butt wiggles from May Mae!
