Happy Furball Monday!

Happy Monday!  The weather is a bit dreary around here today, so I thought I'd brighten the day with some foster updates. 

First up is Harper (formerly Kelly).  Boy is she getting big - she's almost 21 pounds now!  Her Mom told me they've been taking her for lots of walks and hikes, and she's starting to get more comfortable around strangers.  I just adore this little girl... she was definitely Sophie's mini-me and I think they helped each other to overcome alot of shyness.  Isn't she just beautiful?

Speaking of beautiful, check out these shots of Addie, the little girl with the big ears who was already adopted when she came up in February.  She just needed a place to crash for a few days until her family returned from vacation... and we were the lucky ones!  Addie is doing wonderful in her forever home and loves romping with her two human siblings.

Speaking of big ears... We only had tiny little Ace for a couple of days in December before our friends decided they wanted him!  Ace now lives with one of our original fosters from way back, Simon.  Don't they make a cute pair of boys?  I especially love the last shot of them napping.

Another foster from way back (2007 to be exact!), Cotton (formerly Bella) is doing great in her growing family.  She has an adorable human baby brother to watch over!

My sweet little Rosie is getting a little pudgy having a blast with her big sister Rascal and we've just found out that they are expecting human siblings later this year!  No, that s isn't a typo.... I better get knitting!

Our most recent little tyke, Maverick, is having a blast with his big brother Zac... and it looks like he is almost bigger than Zac already!  Mavie's Mom told me that he still likes to hoard things (both his and his family's).  The running joke whenever someone can't find something, is to ask if anyone checked Mavie's hording pile in the kitchen yet!  I'm happy to hear that he takes his snuggie and little piggie toy to bed with him each night still... it still makes me teary eyed thinking about that!

This post just makes me smile bigger and bigger as I write it!  It means so much to receive updates and photos from our fosters' forever families.  I can't tell them all how much I appreciate them - both for giving our extended family of babies loving homes and for keeping us updated.  Sweet baby girl Sake is still here with us - 3 weeks now!  I can't believe no one has scooped her up.  The rescue has relisted her as "Daisy" on the adoption sites, but I'm not sure the name really matters.  She's an absolutely awesome little girl with a heart of gold and superstar personality.  I selfishly wish someone we know would adopt her...

How WONDERFUL that you open your home and your heart to help so many deserving pups! I know of the joy that they bring into your life and of the HOPE that you bring into theirs!

Hi Y'all,

Fun seeing what's going on with the passed pups. Hope Sake (Daisy) finds a forever home soon.

Just stopped by to catch up on your happenings and say hello! Have a great week!

Y'all come by now,

Isn't it nice that the forever families keep sending you pictures. It makes it easier to let them go when you know you will be able to watch them thrive!

So happy you get picture updates on your foster pups and that you share them with us - very cute - and I love happy endings :)

I've got my paws crossed that Sake will find her forever home soon as well

What a wonderful job you do :)

Your pal Snoopy :)
