Wordless Wednesday (Ehh, sorta)

My babies were separated for a few days while I went out of town. I take Oscar with me because he is needy and high maintenance and sneaky. I say that lovingly! Lucy is perfection, easy, and doesn’t care who she’s with as long as they let her sleep on the bed…as all princesses should! So, I leave her with my kiddo’s dad, who has another Boxer, and I take Oscar wherever I’m going. Whenever they get back together, they are so stinkin cute! They give each other lots of kisses, play for a little bit, and then cuddle for the rest of the night, to make up for lost time.

Here are some people in my life…just so you don’t think that I’m only surrounded by dogs!!

Who is your Valentine?

Hello, and Happy Valentine’s day!

Some of you may have wondered why I don’t say much about Oscar, in regards to him being adoptable. Or, maybe you have wondered if he belongs to me, why isn’t he listed on the page about my “furever dogs”. Well…..after much deliberation, I have finally decided to become a foster failure! I am officially adopting Oscar! 🙂

To give a little backstory on him, he was at the a shelter in Gainesville and was at his last couple of days before euthanasia. It is believed that he suffered from major neglect and malnutrition. This caused his growth to be stunted, as well as his bones to not form correctly. We believe this is why he limps. So anyway, Last Hope agreed to pull him, and I would foster. I knew his size was perfect for what I would want in a second dog, and found out quickly that his personality was too! He is the pesky little brother to Lucy, Jayden totally adores him and actually even named him, and he follows me around all the time. He is a pain in the butt, chews up Jayden’s pencils, barks at me if he wants attention, and steals shoes. (He is currently in a time out as I type this, for chewing up another pencil!) But, we love him anyway, and he has found his forever home! (Check out my previous post about how he lovingly stares at me, here!)

Adopting him means I now have two of my own dogs, and one foster dog. Whoa! It gets a little hectic sometimes, and can make going out of town tricky. There is also not much room left on the couch for humans! But I just feel like we are the home that will help him, and give him the love and care that he needs. I plan on taking him to a Good Citizen class to become certified, and then he will be a wonderful advocate for pit bulls everywhere! So, I’ve been fostering for almost a year now, and have only adopted one…not bad at all, compared to some other rescue friends I know! 🙂

So, who is your Valentine today? Looking for a new love? Let me introduce you to some furry friends that would L-O-V-E to fill your home, and heart!

This is Maggie & Bea. Both are sweet, loving girls!

(Almost!) Wordless Wednesday

So, I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers do a Wordless Wednesday post, where they just share a picture(s), and don’t say much. I’ve decided today, on this windy gloomy gray day, I will join in on the weekly tradition. So, here are a few of my favorite pictures from my past foster pups. Enjoy! 🙂

Look! Adoptable Pups!

I don’t have much to say today (shocking, I know!), so I thought I would just give adoptable doggies some special attention. All of these dogs are in need of forever homes!

The below pups are currently with Wakulla Animal Shelter (If you are interested in any of the below pups, please email FriendsOfWCAC@gmail.com. This shelter is at full capacity, and therefore these dogs are at risk of being put down TODAY. Please consider opening your home to one of them, even if just as a foster!)

This is Abby. She is a lab/bulldog mix. What a great mix of breeds!

The following pups are Last Hope Rescue dogs. They are all fully vetted & microchipped prior to adoption. Adopting one of these dogs helps LHR pull and save more shelter dogs, because it opens up a foster home.

There are MANY other dogs available within the shelter and the rescue group. There are also some kitties too, if that is more up your alley! While adopting a dog should never be a rushed decision, many of these pups are at risk of being put down due to shelters and foster homes being full. If you have been contemplating the idea, then offer to foster. It is a great way to see how a dog would affect your daily life…and you may just fall in love! If you aren’t up for adopting or fostering, then I ask that you just share this. You never know who might be up for a new pet!

I joke with my family & friends that they HAVE to follow my blog (seriously, follow me guys), but the reason I ask for people to follow and share, is so that the dogs can get as much exposure as possible. Helping with LHR events allows me to meet these dogs personally, and it breaks my heart that there are so many sweet, wonderful dogs missing out on being loved. There are MANY pure breds in shelters & rescues (especially Labs!). I promise, you can find what you are looking for in a dog, if you just visit local shelters and rescue groups. You’d be surprised at the love and loyalty rescued dogs will give!

If you are interested in any of the featured dogs, please feel free to email me or the above groups. You won’t be sorry! 🙂
