Hi everybody! I just found this forum, and boy am I excited! I have two boys - an eight-year-old husky mix named Taz, and a seven-year-old cat named Dobby.

I'm hoping to do some fostering in a few years when my two-legged babies (I have two small children, and one not-so-small) are a bit older, so I'm thrilled to have found a forum with so many members actively involved in rescue. I'm looking forward to learning a lot here :thumbs up.

Hi, Pax, and welcome!

You'll find lots of fostering advice here...though none from me. :o I'm a foster failure...I adopt :D That's how I ended up with 8 dogs! :laughing:

And yes, we'll definitely need to see pictures of your furbabies. :D We're sort of demanding that way...but no pressure, no pressure... :o

Thanks for the welcome :).

Hm. I'm trying to post pictures, but having some trouble. They don't seem to be showing up. I'll try a different image hosting site and try again.

So is Dobby a Harry Potter fan?

Well, he thinks an open book is a lovely place to sleep, so maybe :laughing:.

It's actually my son and I who are the fans, of course. We were reading the book (the third? I can't remember now) when we gt him. My son and his friends found him as a kitten, hiding under a car at his school, all skin and bones and eyes and ears... he was simply pitiful. The book kept making reference to Dobby's 'tennis ball eyes' and pathetic, frightened demeanour... it just seemed to fit. And like his namesake, he's grown up to be quite the proud gentleman :lovestruck:.

:laughing: I guess I've been found face down in a book now and then, too! :D

Dobby certainly has come a long way! There's nothing pitiful about him anymore. You did a great thing for him, taking him in. :thumbs up
