(Toledo, OH) We have been involved with Planned Pethood
for some time now, and we have recently become foster parents to dogs who need temporary homes.
The group sponsors frequent Pet Adoptathons, and today's event at the PetSmart in Rossford saw seven dogs leave foster care with new owners. We were a bit saddened to have to say goodbye to B.J., a Lhasa Apso we have been fostering
, but he is going to live with a nice lady who came all the way from suburban Detroit to adopt him.Left: Pet lovers taking a look at foster dogs
We came home with another dog, though, after being asked to take in a poodle mix named Mortimer. He's a sweet boy, and loves to cuddle, and I'll be writing more about him when I get familiar with him.
We were not able to sneak out and check out the bathroom vanities
at the nearby home improvement store, though. That will have to wait for another Saturday.
For those of you thinking about getting a dog, please consider adopting a rescue pooch. Every resuce dog we have taken in has been housebroken, good-tempered, and loveable (though some dogs might not yet be housebroken).
