How lucky is Patriot, he gets a mum and a foster mum. His own home and a fun one to visit, to play with Cyrus. You've taken him from having no hope to being twice blessed, Sylvie, well done! Wish it didn't come with the downside of you missing him.
Thought about fostering here but, you won't believe this, I am too far out of town to do it. I didn't mind being too far out to be called for jury duty but for fostering, it seems ridiculous. Actually, when I think of it, I am not in the same Shire as either of the two closest city pounds, and am one mile off the very end of our own shire. I suppose they do want dogs close to civilization for people to look at and hopefully adopt.
