If you have been following my facebook [where you probably got this link] then you know that two new puppies have recently entered my life. Well, I have been getting a few questions so I thought I would clear it up here.
These two little angels are my foster puppies. I was sitting there
at work on facebook and my dog sitter had posted about the Nevada SPCA having 28 Australian Shepherd puppies that needed a foster home. The picture kinda broke my heart but for some reason I just really felt pulled to go to the SPCA to just check it out and see how much they really needed fosters for the animals. I went straight from work and sure enough, they had only fostered about 8 of the 28 pups. I signed the paperwork and within 15 minutes I had two little puppies in a kennel coming home with me. ….. it happened just about as fast as when I adopted Lola.
Speaking of Lola….they are growing on her. She growls at them a bit but the other day she gave them her toy and sat protectively as they laid in her bed. maybe there is hope…
But no, not adopting. As cute as these little buggers are, they will only be mine for 1-2 months. I take them in for shots at three weeks. They even traveled all the way to Florida with me for some extra Christmas sunshine. You wouldn’t believe how many people light up when they see a puppy!!
They were so well behaved on the plane, only a little whining and when I put them in my lap, they went straight to sleep!
If you are considering a pet, I highly recommend going to animal control, SPCA, or one of the many groups who help save animals from being put down. The SPCA had no room for 28 puppies and I am too scared to think about what would have happened to any of the dogs if they had not found room for them–or if they had to make room.
And while I am on that soap-box, be sure to spay and neuter your pets!! tell your friends too! There are enough homeless puppies that need a little love.
And if you are in Nevada and are interested in adopting Sydney or Byron, please send me a message!
