Foster Failure!

Wow, I can't believe it's been a year since I last posted! How time flies!

For those who remember me, my dogs are doing great! Nova is a diva as always, and Cody is still a goofball :laughing:

I just wanted to introduce my newest family member... my first failed foster, Snipe, a 6 month old Border Collie x Australian Cattle Dog.

But I mean, look at this face? How could I not keep him??

He gets along wonderfully with the other dogs and is pack full of energy! He is focused and a very quick learner, typical of a herding dog. Too smart and stubborn for his own good! ;)

Snipe, is a very handsome fella there. I'd have kept him too. HUGS ...failed fosters are often the BEST dogs ever.

Try feeding them a few treats, then holding a treat over your head as all three of them are looking at you. Its the only way we manage to get any of ours still long enough to take a photo thats not a blur. :D
