Just when I was used to being home something amazing happened. A nice family came to Petsmart and talked and talked to mom and dad. A few days later they took me to the family's house. The back yard is the most awesome place. I ran and ran till my tongue was hanging out. It was so fun. Mom and dad stayed for a while and I went all over the big house with the 2 boys and checked it out. Then we went outside and when I went in mom and dad were gone They had kissed me and told me they love me before i went out but I didn't understand they were going. I felt sad that first night. I didn't eat dinner and I kept smelling the chairs where they sat. I went to bed in my new parents room and I was very good. The next morning the boys got up and we played and had breakfast and i had a great day. I feel comfortable now. I guess thie is my home now. That's fine cause I like my 2 boys a lot. I am being very good.

Can you believe I was returned to my foster parents? Well let me tell you what happened. See my new people have a prissy little Dachshund at their house. She didn't like me and guess what? I didn't like her. My new parents kept trying to get us to be friends but it just didn't work. Now the best thing would have been to send Miss Priss away but oh noooooo. They brought me back here instead. Can you magine that? Well the joke's on Miss Prissy Dachshund cause I like it here. My foster parents think I am a beauty and my foster brothers and sisters are just perfect. WeLLLLL not perfect maybe but they are Ok. Mom says I should not be sad because they will find me another home. One where I am the only Princess. Sounds good to me. For now I'll just get hugs and cuddles from my foster parents and I'll be happy.

Wow, what and honor! Almost as much of an honor as it was to be Dixie's mom for a while. She is such a special little dog. I think I say that about them all. But it's true. The satisfaction I get from working with a rescue and from finding good homes for the fosters I have is just not something I can put in words. Foster homes are so few and far between. Wonderful loving dogs are put to death because there are not enough foster homes to help them. Of course it's hard to take a dog in great need and help it reach it's healthiest and then let it go. It hurts to say good bye to them. But at the same time you make a family happy and give the dog a good life. Then you go and get another one ASAP. Don't dwell on the happy one. Focus on the ones who need your help.
