Hi! And welcome to my adventures as a foster mom to dogs in need!
My name is Morgan. I am a health nut, work-out-aholic, bookworm, and a dog lover. Like, BIG TIME dog lover. I’ve grown up with them and I suspect I will die being known as the crazy dog lady. Don’t worry, I’m fine with it.
One day I want to run my own rescue but in the mean time I have decided to start fostering dogs. I have a few goals with this blog and at the top of that list is to hopefully inspire more people to do the same. Hey, if I can do it, anyone can do it! Fostering is such a simple way to make such a huge impact. You are literally saving a life that otherwise may not have had a chance in the shelter–plus opening up a space for one more. All you need is love and some patience to make a world of difference.
My second goal for this blog is to educate, enlighten, and hopefully change some minds about “bully breeds”. By fostering these guys I hope to show others what great family pets they make. I grew up with Labs plus whatever stray dogs I happened to find and take in (my parents are awesome) and never really paid much attention, or really even cared for that matter, about what breed a dog was. To me, dogs are dogs; they are full of love to give and really want nothing more than that same unconditional love in return.
Over the years I have met many pit bull or “bully” type dogs and realized that if I was ever going to have a preference, they would be it. Maybe it’s their soulful eyes, their big meaty heads, the way they always seem to want to be smushed right up against you, or that irresistible grin (I think this might be the one for me)…I don’t know but I can’t keep away from them.
I am always shocked at the way some people react to the mention of pit bulls and are so quick to judge them. I could preach for days about how some of society’s views are so sadly misinformed but instead I intend to “walk the walk” and show what loyal, lovable, and great family dogs pit bulls and other “bully” breeds really are.
I hope that you will laugh with me as I learn from mistakes, share in the joy of my success stories, cry when the inevitable heartbreaks happen but, most of all, decide to open your home to a foster dog in need as well. Here goes nothin’!
