What Happy Really Looks Like

For today's Dogs on Thursday, I wanted to share some of my very own "life's little joys" with you.... updated pics of 2 of my beloved foster babies!

Dustee (aww... wasn't that a cute group photo?) has become quite the little adventurer, hiking around on the rocks in Maine and enjoying the ocean. I just adore this handsome little man...

If you've ever wondered what happy truly looks like, just look at this big smile. This little guy had such a rough start in life and it still amazes me how full of love and life he is!

I also heard from Cotton's (aww, another cute group photo) - formerly known as Bella - family. Looks like she's become a little outdoors-women/hiker herself.

I'm so honored to have been a small part of these happy furbabies lives. It truly makes my day when I hear from their families and get to see new pictures! Its not easy, but if you can do it, think about fostering...... your heart may ache when they go off to their forever homes (or you may fail... once... or maybe twice, like we did), but the rewards are endless.... and priceless.

Nichole ...what a great service! I never heard of Foster Care for dogs!

Foster babies, Dustee and Cotton/Bella(which means beautiful)
you are the happiest looking two!
I know it's because Nichole was showing you great LOVE! You both look like GREAT DOGS and like you really love being outdoors and exploring! I hope your families treat you well and keep sending photos!

You have a great heart, Nichole!

Ilove that their new parents keep in touch with you. Makes it a little bit easier - no? g

What cuties!! It must make you feel very good to be part of a project like this. So much better for the pups to be fostered in a loving home than in a shelter. :)

Rescue dogs make the best friends! I'd love to take in one or two, but we have no fence and Himself and I are opposed to keeping a dog on a chain.

I think that one of the best things of fostering is getting updates of our former babies, seeing their happy faces and knowing how loved they are!
