Meet Kailey!!! (a.k.a. Beauty)

I will try to post some better pics soon - they're hard to get because the dogs don't want to stop moving right now They're still having all kinds of fun playing....and they kiss a lot! I will try to get a picture of a make-out session

She really is gorgeous....the pictures just don't do her justice! I have to say I really like her...but Chase's Dad is absolutely smitten! He is quickly falling in love with her and I think I might have to be the rational one for once!

(And yes, her tongue really is that big - it's not just the picture!)

I love her new name too ......and I'm really glad you changed it.

Chase's Dad isn't the only one that is smitten.....I think Chase is too. So two down and one to go......here comes another failed foster.

I'm sooo glad they get along

You won't need to have cable, as they will keep you entertained

Sounds like everything is going good. It looks like you will hve your hands full, but she should tonight.

Can't say it enough, thank you to both of you and of course Chase for letting this little into your home.

Keep us posted and can't wait to meet her.

She really is gorgeous! Come on now, you just can't have a one pup household. Chase needs a sister.

OMG your not the only one who's smitten! Wow her origional picture did her no justice! She is a really nice looking girl! She looks really happy! and so does your cute boy! I wont hope you become a failed foster okay! I will also be the voice of reason! for now anyway!!

Cause if you keep her you cant foster anymore! WE NEED MORE FOSTERS! Not that I dont want you to adopt! but you cant fail just yet!!

Looks like things are settling in! You know where we are if you need anything! I am looking forward to finally meeting this little one and her guardian angels !

Cindy

P.S I also love the name! good choice!

She certainly does seem to approve of her new foster family. She's a gorgeous girl--a fact that has not escaped the notice of the handsome Chase! Smoochin', eh?

Update

Okay, first off: The smell of foster failure is not present in this house! My boyfriend seems to want that, but if I'm honest with myself, I just know she isn't the right dog for us....NOT to say she isn't a great dog! But your dog has to fit your lifestyle and she is just not easygoing enough for me I don't think She needs firm guidance, and my boyfriend is naturally very assertive so I think that's why they're already so attached to each other. She even rolled over on her back for him last night! I'm trying really hard to assert myself with her and it's coming along, but it isn't natural to me so that's a bit hard. My approach is best with puppies I think! But she will have no trouble finding a great furever home so I am not at all worried about that!

Last night went well. She does well in her crate with only a bit of whining for the first couple minutes. Once, at about 3 a.m. she heard a noise she didn't like and barked, and oh my this girl has a BIG bark! Scared the crap out of us!

She's still enjoying playing with Chase and is becoming more interested in toys. Surprisingly, she seems like only a moderate chewer and so far is not showing any signs of being destructive.

She's eating enough that I think she likes the Wellness Lamb I'm feeding her, but she isn't finishing her meals yet. I'm sure she's still pretty nervous and it is quite hot in here even with our A/C...but she's drinking plenty and eating enough that I don't feel worried. She is a bit constipated though and only pooped once (last night). I'm going to try a bit of plain canned pumpkin and see if that helps her.

Anyway, that's it for now! I will post some pictures later, and in the meantime am hoping she doesn't have a bad reaction to the thunderstorm we're about to get.

Thanks for the update! Sounds like she is settling! I think you will find once she knows her boundries and limits it will be easier on everyone! It takes some time for you to establish where you are and where she see's you in the pecking order! I know what you mean about the bark thing! My guy has a bark that goes right through me! Glad all is well!

Oh my, quite the beauty.

and good for you to know what your dog type is I sorta fostered once and felt the same way, I was totally in love with the guy but knew it could not be a long term thing.... now if Kailey stays around long enough things could change, tastes (and smells) change ya know

Anyway, it's great this girl is getting a break with such great folks. I'm sure she will bring total joy to some lucky furever family

Awww,look at them,they are buddies
Does she have to stay in a crate at night??Where does Chase sleep?
But then again, if Kailey is ok in the crate that's all good.

Chase sleeps on his bed on the floor beside me in our room. Kailey seems pretty comfy in her crate....we can't fit it in our room though so it goes just outside our door so she's not too far away and the A/C can blow on her. I think she'll probably be able to sleep on the other side of our bed pretty soon though....we just need to get to know her a bit better first, but I think she'll be pretty good with us at night. There's not really anything to get into and we'd notice if she managed it. We'll still be using the crate when we go out though!

I might feel differently when I get to know her better and she's had a chance to learn all the rules....but I really want her to find the BEST fit possible for her furever home and I'm not sure we're it. Plus I really want one more puppy, and then to keep fostering....so she should go to a home where she will be the last addition for a while

I'm glad to hear this is normal....I've felt so bad that I wasn't instantly feeling like I wanted to keep her forever. I think she's absolutely fantastic and I'm really glad she is with us - wouldn't change it for anything! But for Kailey's sake I think it's important to be honest with myself and just focus on helping her get ready to be the best she can be for her future parents! I really believe she has a very bright future ahead of her

She really is a beautiful dog. Large and regal but really feminine looking, like Frenchies Nelly.
