Kona is our first foster dog. Isn't she way adorable? We got the home inspection on Saturday. That afternoon we went to go to Petsmart to meet some of the other fosters. Someone who found Kona dropped her off about a half of an hour before we got there. She had a microchip and they called the owner. He said he didn't want her and he gave her away a year ago. So where she has been nobody knows. But isn't she precious? So without a second thought we took her into our home right away.
When we brought her home she wasn't sure about anything. Then like Tatum and most dogs that come to our house she got into the pool. She got out right away because it was cold, but then later that day she got into it again! And then a half hour before we had to go to the vet. The vet says she's a 3 year old, happy, healthy girl. And that, she is.
Since she has been with us, she has opened up a lot more. She loves walks, car rides, chewing on bones, and is housetrained. She is scared of tight spaces though and is scared of the crate. Once we were finally able to get her in one, we came home to find that she had gotten out AND that she didn't chew on one thing. She is still getting used to us and has to be around us wherever we go, but once she knows no one is leaving her and she becomes more confident she won't have such an issue with this.
Having two dogs around the house is completely different. Tatum won't leave her alone and has to be biting her ears constantly (his ear fetish). But she just takes it and doesn't seem to mind.
Hope everyone has a great day! And just to make you smile, I'm putting some more pictures of Kona and Tatum.
And I can't say enough about our the lab resuce that we are a part of, Desert Labs. Everyone is truly wonderful. If you have extra time and extra love to give, I think you should think maybe becoming a foster parent. It's one of the most rewarding things I feel like I have been able to do in my life so far (and we've only had her for two and a half days).
