Transitioning into a new foster program hasn’t been easy for Kat. She’s had to do lots of reading, asked lots of questions, and learned lots of new things. We four are super excited about the change because we know what it all means – MORE FRIENDS!!
Today she took SueAnne and Zoe to an AAP at Petsmart. We were super jealous – Petsmart is like our second favorite place ever! We always get treats and toys there. But she didn’t forget us and brought home treats!
Frisco Humane Society does their Adopt-A-Pet (AAP) events a little differently than Kat was used to. She came home very happy though – met new friends (two-legged and four-legged) and learned new things. SueAnne and Zoe met new friends too. We hope they’ll find their own home soon – not because we don’t love them, we just want them to have a Kat of their own!
They said there were lots of other dogs there looking for homes. She says you can find them on the Frisco Humane Society website. Don’t you know someone in the DFW area looking for a furry friend?
She also got to see Danny! We miss him!!! He never tackled us, chewed on our ears, stole our toys, ate our food … but he did pee on Kat’s table … once. She seems so thrilled about his new family. They love him! We’re happy!
If the weather holds up, I’m driving to pick her up tonight. I’m really excited because the sooner I get her, the quicker she gets off her chain and out of the almost-freezing and rainy weather!
Since she’s coming from such a difficult situation, I feel it would be best to re-name her. Surely Kara just isn’t something she treasures! Let’s make her feel loved and appreciated with her own identity!
No we haven’t seen her but we do know she’s a black and white Border Collie with short hair. Maybe a mix.
Oh my, can I do it? Guess we’ll find out soon enough because I just couldn’t turn down the opportunity to save the sweet girl coming over tonight.
I’m truly thrilled about her. I know there will be some hard times ahead of us – she’s been living in an outdoor kennel 24/7 all her life so she’s most likely not potty trained, socialized, vetted or trained in any way. It will be quite a challenge but oh the joy of change. Oh the reward!
So, look out Bubbas, Ladies, Fosters – I’ve gone off the deep-end!
While we haven’t been fosters for very long yet … I now know the blessing of an Adopted Foster Reunion! Last night, SUNNY and her new brother SPUD (also adopted) came for a short visit! She was energetic and practically crazy taking in all the new smells (it’s been three fosters since she’d been here.) But it was fantastic to see her for a short bit.
Sunny’s on the right. Isn’t it cute how she got a mini me for a brother!?!
And after they were gone … my girls just couldn’t get enough of the smells they left behind! (Sorry for the wretched picture quality)
And of course, it’s always fun when Bandit and Kenzie come to play. Abbi and Zoe just adore Bandit- following him around, tails waggin’ with glee. Kenz is one of the Bubbas’ favorites but there were just too many pups around to get a good snuggle in.
Kat saved me from a shelter when I was only six weeks old. Can you believe it? She said I was her healing puppy and it was love at first site!
Now I've got Bubbas, who love to cuddle too - even if I've nibbled on their ears all day! And I've got a big yard where I can have friends over until they find a home of their own. This dog blog is all about my foster friends, as well as, some fun stories about our lives together at Bella Cashlin (Our Beautiful Little Castle!)

Back in the spring of 2008, our mom, pregnant and starving, wandered onto Mimi's ranch in east Texas. Mimi is a true animal lover! Kat came to visit her Mimi and we quickly attached ourselves to her. A few days later we were heading to the city.
We're typical rough-housing brothers who are all heart. We love people and can't help ourselves from following them around close at their heels or curling up on top of them if they take a seat. We're sooo loving, most people think were weird ... that we're like dogs.
My family was packing up all their stuff. The house was empty. What was happening? I didn't understand. Then Kat showed up. Little did I know what love she had for me and the family I would be getting - all for me! No more making up games to play by myself in the yard, no more getting swiped by the cat when I just want to play a little, no more long nights alone in the laundry room.
Now I've got a sister who loves to play (even lets me put her whole head in my mouth) and two Bubbas who like to cuddle. I even have tons of friends already! I can't believe how lucky I am.
