Drama... Foster Sister Oreo... & Team Corbin!

So... Mom's computer has officially kicked the bucket.  Yep, it's done with.  Completely useless.  Know what that means???  No pictures!!!!!!!  Mom has NOWHERE to put her pictures.  We're using our crappy old computer that makes a lot of noise and is pretty much useless as well.  So, mom isn't happy, because she can't submit her homework and stuff... but the real reason this is a problem?????  How the HECK am I supposed to blog?!  Ugh.  The nerve.  Hopefully we can figure out a way to get a new computer soon.  For now, I'll listen to the annoying computer while I write my blog posts :o)

Foster Sister Oreo

So, wanna hear a bit about Oreo???  Oreo was a local surrender to Homeward Bound.  Her family had some life changes and could no longer take care of her.  So she came to live with me!  She was really scared and nervous for the first 24 hours... she kept shaking and crying.  I kept my distance so she didn't think I was being rude.  She didn't want to play with me at all.  But, that was okay with me.  Mom left Sunday night to see Cesar Millan.  She cried and cried and cried when Mom left the house... but she eventually calmed down and took a nap with dad on the couch. 

Tuesday she started playing a little with me in the back yard!  It started with her just running along next to me when I was zoomin' around.  Then she did a few play bows.  Wednesday morning we started tugging together in the house!  It was a lot of fun, but I was still very careful to go slow with her because I knew it was all new to her!  Now, she's a playing machine!  We tug all the time and run around playing tag in the back yard!  Mom's favorite part of fostering is watching a dog "become a dog" and that's just what Oreo has done!  She's made herself very welcome and comfy in my house, which is okay by me!  Mom hopes she finds her forever home tomorrow so she can bond and attach herself to her new family before she gets too attached to us.  I'll surely miss her, but I hope she finds her forever home too!  She's been a lot of fun and a great foster sister.  I wouldn't mind her sticking around for a little while longer!!! 
Mom and Dad let us on the bed with them when they were watching
TV.... there wasn't much room left for them!!! hehehe
So, now on to the VERY IMPORTANT stuff!!!!!!!!!!
