  1. Great post! Growing up we always had pets. I come from an animal lovers family lol. For the last 17 years (since my husband and I moved into this house) we also always had a dog or 2….plus others pets. After my 14 year old Ozzy passed (4 lb chihuahua), we became foster fur-parents. Since I watched my grandkids, there was no way I could handle a puppy or any other fur baby. Getting any pet at a young age is a lot of work…just like raising kids lol! Being a foster family is a great way to take a dog in temporarily knowing they’ll go onto a good home that allows us to help choose. The best part is that we can adopt the dog ourselves. It’s a great way to see if the dog is compatible with our lifestyle and schedule. Also with kids and other pets. I highly recommend fostering first. We got so lucky with our first foster who we ended up adopting. He was an emergency because he was left at a kennel that euthanizes pit bulls if they’re not adopted within 48 hours. Such a shame because he’s so perfect and lovable.
