First and foremost, I am delighted to report a successful conclusion to my first foray into foster-care of a dog in need of temporary care following rescue by our local Humane Society. Those of you who have been following me for a while will certainly remember my posts about Glenda (if you’d like direct links, you can find them here and here). I have recently learned that she has been accepted into a new home where she is welcome, treasured, and very happy.
We have taken our second step in foster care today, inviting a new dog in need into our home. Nutmeg is a 7-month-old Boxer-Greyhound mix who was rescued from an unfortunate situation in which she was confined to a room with two other dogs and numerous cats without appropriate attention to standard hygiene. She’s had surgery for a leg injury and we expect to have her in our care for about two weeks.
She is a very sweet pup and I believe her to be quite clever and capable of learning what she needs to know quite rapidly to be a good pet. I expect to bring you progress reports in the near future. Please wish us luck!
