EvieLu Comes Back

 There once was a foster dog named EvieLu.  She found her forever home and was so very happy!  Then, the happily ever after came to a halt.  EvieLu was having some issues apparently, so she had to come back home to me.  Since coming back, she's been doing great!  I'm not sure what was triggering her, but there are those instances where you can have the right people, but the wrong dog or even the wrong people/timing, but the right dog.  I guess we'll never know what exactly caused the issues, but EvieLu has been fabulous since she's been here. 
She does great with the other dogs and the cats in the house.  She seems to love kids and other adults.  She plays, she naps, she loves.  Whatever it was that was getting to her, I suppose is gone here. 
When we take in dogs from local kill shelters, we don't always know what the background of the dog is.  We can only hope to improve their situation as best as we can.  Once in a while the fit in a new home just doesn't work, but it usually will with a different placement.  So EvieLu is back up for adoption again.  She will stay with me for a few more weeks before attending events just so I can be sure all is well, but for now, she's a happy dog, waiting for her forever happily ever after. . ."fur" real this time.  :-)

Sweet Little Guy

 Chico, Chico, and more Chico!  This little one has been waiting quite some time to find that forever home that we all hope our fosters get.  He's such a sweet little guy to have around!  The weather lately has us outdoors more, but when we come in, he's pooped! (Note the napping above :-)  )
A friend made a comment about this picture.  I must love coming home to all of these critters and yes, I have to agree.  Though, sometimes I feel a little bad for them.  At my house, the fosters have to take a back seat to my own critters.  It's the only fair way to keep fostering and give my bubs the extra attention that they deserve.  Of course, that's still tons better than what it could be if they were stuck in a cage somewhere with limited human/animal/social  contact.  Here, they have full run of the house when I'm home, access to all the toys, water, and treats they can handle!  I'm almost proud of our dinner routine, haha!  They all know exactly where to go when it's time to eat.  It's a thing of beauty really.  In return, they give me so much more than I could ever give them.  They "tell" me their stories and privilege me with getting to know what loving, amazing creatures they are.  I have to say, I definitely have the better end of the deal, but being the unselfish creatures that they are, I think they are okay with that.  :-)
