Oh Boy! In about an hour Maggie and I will be heading to the home of her prospective new family to meet them. I had a great chat with the mother after work yesterday and I feel really good about them. She has tons of experience with dogs like Maggie and really views dogs as family members, just like I do.
I am getting really excited thinking about all of the future dogs that I will be able to help if Maggie does get adopted. It goes without saying, I will be sad and miss her dearly, but like I said yesterday, this is all part of fostering. You have to swallow that lump and say goodbye. You have to see the big picture and realize that by being selfless, and saying goodbye to your beloved foster dog, you will be able to give the gift of your love to so many more and help them the way you’ve helped that foster. So, this really is the first step in the process, and nothing is set in stone yet, but I’m feeling very hopeful! I will report back soon, but in the mean time, have a great Saturday!
