A foster dog story

Nitro was my last foster dog, He arrived in January almost 4 years ago and I came very close to adopting him myself as he fit in so well with my own dogs and the cats, especially with Tipper and they were the best of buddies, Though letting him go was heartbreaking, his new owner and I became friends and we ended up sharing not only happiness but sorrow as well, and I know Nitro could not have found a better owner then Jo-Anne and I could not have been happy to later help Jo-Anne in finding Nitro's sister later.
