Did you guess? Well, let me tell you a little story. Last week, Momma was reading through LBR emails when she saw the list of urgent BINs -- Boxers In Need of foster homes that were about to be put down in their shelter. And she saw one labeled BIN 15302.
Momma looked in her eyes and said, "She needs us." We had been planning on fostering again after Momma's Renny-sauce faire was over, and here was someone Momma just KNEW was sent by Cinderella. So she said she would take her if someone else could babysit her for a week until her faire stuff was over with. And just like that...
Ta-da!! She broke out of the shelter and hung her leash with an LBR volunteer for a few days until we were ready for her. She was so scared and shy and timid in her temp home. Her official name is LBR foster Jessalyn, but Momma and I are calling her Jessie after the sassy cowgirl from Toy Story. We figure Jessie needs that kind of spunk!
Well, last night was the big day. (And Momma said it was a welcome distraction from Bad News.) She picked up Jessie from her temporary foster home and brought her to meet me.
"Do I get to meet my new foster brother now?"
Jessie wasn't shy and timid with Momma. She was happy and bounced all around the car. And boy does she give grreat kisses!! Momma brought her home and let her out in the backyard for a quick sniff. And Jessie said WHEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She had so much fun zooming around the backyard! So Momma brought me out for our introductory sniff. And in NO time, we were running around after each other, play bowing, and having lots of fun!
Momma decided that a little getting-to-know-you walk was in order, so we geared up and headed out around the neighborhood. I showed Jessie all the best places for pee mail.
She walked beeYOUtifully on her leash, and we were acting like old furiends!
Her only problem is that she can't control her licker -- Momma had her face washed about a gazillion times yesterday!
I think it's something we're willing to live with. :)
So stay tuned for the continuing adventures of my new foster sissy! She needs heartworm treatment, so she'll be with us for a while before she's ready to start looking for her forever home. Once she's settled in, I'll let her kick off Foster Friday again!
