Adopt a Pet Month!

October is Adopt a Pet Month!  And since I'm an adopted Pet and my family continues to foster dogs for the rescue I came from, I thought I'd do an entry every week in October and introduce you to the foster dogs we've had!

Our first foster dog was Belle.  She was a beauty!!!  She was adopted out as a puppy from Homeward Bound and her family could no longer keep her, so they returned her at 2.5 years old!  She was a Beagle/German Shepard mix.
This was when Mom first brought her home.
Here we are after we got introduced and had some playing time.
Once I decided she was OK, I showed her around the yard.
We made sure to inspect the yard for intruders every day.
We had to make sure things weren't hiding anywhere.
Then she'd take my ball... and I'd chase her around
I'd catch her and tell her that it was MY ball.
Then I'd sit on her when she tried to talk back.
We really got along great though!
We kept Mom company when she wasn't feeling well.
And I taught her how to sleep!
Hehe looks scary, huh?  We liked to play bitey faces!
We enjoyed relaxing and napping together on the couch.
And I'd often sneak into her crate so we could sleep together
at night.
Hehe! She was very silly sticking out her tongue!!
And she really loved riding in the car!
We had her for 2.5 weeks as a foster dog.
 Mom has a special place in her heart for Belle.  She was a beautiful girl and so very well behaved.  We got along great and I miss her very much!  Mom loved her furever family and knows she'll have a safe place for the rest of her life! She is beautiful with her black eyeliner! -Hey Puddles, maybe she stole yours??? Ut-oh...

Oh, One more thing....

Mom would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who wished her a happy day!  She had a great birthday - of course, because she has me!  And, apparently Mom celebrates her birthday for 20 days, not just 1 day!  Go Figure.  Almost an entire month all about my Momma!  Sounds typical ;-)  Her friends at work threw her a little party with cupcakes and ice cream!  Mom was supposed to bring me home a cupcake but she forgot it... so I BETTER get it tonight!  Or else!  Dad and I also got mom a brand new camera!  Now she has no excuses not to take even more pictures of ME!  Once she gets it all figured out, she'll upload some new camera pictures!

  8. Corbin, your mama is a great great person. Fostering dogs is super important. Of course my mama failed at fostering cuz she adopted Lincoln :) hehe

    You seem like a really good foster brother too. You might need to share some tips with me on how to be a better sibling.
