A sudden shadow

As things get more back to normal and I’m able to move around more freely, we’ve been keeping an eye on the Nebraska Humane Society website for dogs in need of temporary foster care, and now we have Shadow for a couple of weeks, treating her for a chronic ear infection.  She’s the largest foster dog we’ve had yet, but she’s very gentle and doesn’t jump up on people at all, and is not only house- but also fairly well obedience-trained.  Shadow 411She’s likely mostly lab, something over a year old, and she gets along just great with Leo; we think most of the rest of her may be  border collie, as she loves to herd to wherever she thinks he should go in the house (until he’s had enough and jumps out of reach).

    Shadow’s beautiful. It’s good to hear you have the agility and energy to deal with a dog!

      The energy’s there, but the agility will be some time in coming around. I couldn’t handle her on my own, but it sure is nice to have a dog around the house again!

    Definitely see the border collie in her. Thank you for fostering her. She’s a lucky girl to be in your home while she heals and waits for her forever place.

      She’s a welcome and rewarding guest, and we’re looking forward to another week of having her with us. She has settled right in and seems to feel perfectly at home.
