Adopt a Springer. Seriously a lot of springers are good with cats. I have only had one foster who would kill a cat... the rest love cats.

Baby skunks are adorable. So are big skunks... Sorry that Bunny got sprayed though. There is a pet skunk rescue in Ohio that I browse every once in awhile because I think I need a pet skunk. I may have to become someone who rehabilitates wildlife ... considering I want a pet skunk and a pet fox but do not want to support the trade of wild animals in any way. I am one of the people who are opposed to the breeding of wolves and wolf hybrids as pets too. I have everything planned out for my dream yard to include everything a fox would need to be happy so I think I may be able to look into the rehabilitation thing more. Boyfriend wants a Savannah cat and I told him they cost as much as a cheap car. We are actually considering a Norwegian Forest Cat in the future. He also wants a Tibetan Mastiff...

Life is good. Going to a rescue event in Wheaton Illinios next Saturday. Taking the puppy, Perry with me. He had adopters but they backed out at the last minute. Anyone interested in a 20 month old Australian Shepherd/Springer/something mix? He's seventy pounds of pure love and playfulness... but amazingly gentle. When he was first introduced to cats he was frightened (Sam the kitten tends to be a bully) but my white cat likes to be chased so she enticed Perry into a game of chase that ended with her on the back of the love seat batting at him. Perry batted back by gently placing his paw by her. Seriously, this guy has to be the sweetest and gentlest dog I have ever fostered which is why I was heartbroken when his adopters backed out. Oh well... we like adopters who are sure they want their dog and there is a family for Perry!

..Yeah... it should have said the article described Hovawarts as Golden Retrievers with the colors of a rottweiler... the article said their temperament was like a Golden Retrievers.

Congratulations Cash! I just read that Hovawart are colored like Rottweilers and like Golden Retrievers. Someone in the comments set the author straight though.

Sometimes I wish I could explain things better. He is not trying to be a bad guy and I'm not trying to pass him off as one. He is really great and accepts me for me (the crazy animal lady). He actually suffers from general anxiety. I don't know if I really have social anxiety or if I am just shy and introverted. I just know that I do not like to meet new people and it takes me awhile to just talk to someone. Social situations cause physical pain for me. Like this past fourth, I went to a gathering of his friends but they changed location and boyfriend almost canceled us going because he didn't want me to be far from home. I said we would still go so he could see his one friend who he never sees. I had fun but I also wanted to escape to some place quiet. It is really rare that I click with someone right away (boyfriend and I clicked right away... I followed him his first night closing with me singing Jon Denver songs). I also know that I'd rather have Isabelle be my maid of honor and not be a fake person by asking one of his friend's wives.

Boyfriend is opposite of my introvert self though... he's an extrovert who makes friends easily. Most nights we spend together, we are actually just watching tv because I do not like the bar and I suck at playing pool. Boyfriend is willing to try things for me so I am trying to do the same for him.

Does that make sense? He's not being mean about my social awkwardness he just is afraid I am isolating myself.

Jewel- he actually loves my dogs. He's just worried that I isolate myself from people. Boyfriend actually goes to vet visits with me and lets me bring Isabelle with me when I stay over. He also agreed to a puppy if we get a house together. I think its more of an extrovert verses introvert thing. He asked today if I would keep fostering if we lived together. I would like to but it depends on other factors. He knows that I won't give up my dogs for anything and he's okay with that.

A majority of the time, we get along great and barely fight.

How do you tell the one you love that you have a social anxiety and that meeting new people literally freaks you out? I get tight chested and its not that I don't like being around people, its that I prefer my dog. This started when I told my boyfriend that I want Isabelle to be my maid of honor if we got married. He thinks I only talk to people on Facebook (and ninety percent of my Facebook friends are dog people) and I need to get out more. He wants me to be friends with his friends and while I don't dislike them, I don't know them well enough yet.

Isabelle has been with me through everything and to me, the maid of honor spot should go to someone who always be your friend. I have human friends but I don't hang out with them because they live away from me. Isabelle is my best friend and deserves to be with me on my wedding day.

Secret Facebook group? Intriguing...

Flicka- I hope you are healing. Extra hugs for you!

Rainy and windy here today. Isabelle is at least having the time of her life playing in all of the puddles. Power is out in parts of Fort Wayne because of the high winds. Of course conservative Christians are saying this is the worse weather we have had and it has to with the Supreme Court ruling from yesterday. Not all Christians are behaving this way but it seem disparaging to me because it gives a bad name to all of us Christians. By the way... this is no where near the worse weather Indiana has had... ever...

In other news... the puppy has a potential adopter! He is really a sweet and gentle dog but his size is to much for Mr. Buckles.

Have a good Saturday!

Flicka if you want to visit the Great Lakes, I suggest Mackinac Island and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is one of my favorite places in the world. It has falls, the Pictured Rocks, wildlife, and is absolutely stunning!

I may have to stop fostering for a bit. Mr. Buckles is 15 and has bad back hips... it's getting harder for him to move around and I think the 20 month old puppy... who weighs over 60 lbs is to much for him to keep up with. The puppy is also learning that I don't pet puppies that bully old geezers. I just don't want Mr B to have to put up with clumsy puppies who aren't quite coordinated yet. Debating on if I should take Mr. B to the dog park with Isabelle and said puppy tomorrow. I feel bad when I leave him out but I don't want him to get hurt.

Other than that... I am good. Day off tomorrow so I plan on spending it with the dogs.
