Reunited and it feels so good!

Today I went to go visit my former FHGRR foster dog, Teddy, who was adopted a year ago! It was so great to see him, and he definitely recognized me which was a whole lot of fun! He still has the Planet Dog ball I gave him as an adoption present, and we played fetch with it for a while. So so nice to see him so happy in his forever home!

That's got to be so rewarding to see one of your fosters doing so well...you can tell by his smile how happy he was to see you. Pat yourself on your back to a job well done.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Thanks! Teddy was my foster with the most issues at the start. Someone had really abused and neglected him, and he was just terrified of life. He had never experienced anything much, so the whole world was new to him, and at first he would walk crouched inches above the ground and drooled constantly, tail constantly tucked. But little by little, love, patience and kindness won over, and he really blossomed. So it was particularly touching to visit him and see that he is so confident and comfortable. He'll always have a special place in my heart!
