Ziggy - my current foster boy! 

I tried to stop fostering.  I can't!  My heart is broken every time I adopt out a dog.  I cry and I suffer every time!  Choosing their new home is what saves me from totally losing it, but to have to judge peoples lifestyles to match them up with the right dog for them to adopt is so hard.  When I have a dog, it is my baby for the time we are together.  That is just how I am.  My daughter says I shouldn't tell the dogs I love them, because it is just hard on me and they don't know what I'm saying!  Probably true, but I can't.  My heart is fully with them.  While they are here, and when they are gone.  I have to hold on to the people who are willing to keep me updated on the lives their adopted dogs because when I hear what a wonderful life the dogs now have, that makes it ALL worthwhile!  Every tear.  When I don't foster, all I can think of is the dog I should be fostering is suffering somewhere.   My prayer is that more people will foster.
