    Many of you know that we foster dogs. Well Elsie has been with us for almost 7 months now, she was seized from a puppy mill and was in horrible condition when we got her. Well yesterday was finally not a bone chilling day and we decided to take her to the dog park for the very first time. Here are a couple of shots..

    Elise might be going to her forever home on Sunday, I can't stop crying thinking about it, I'm going to miss her so much. Here is one last picture of her, I'm thinking about having it put on a t-shirt or something..

      Awwww, Tammy, I know it's been said a million times, but I don't know how you do it. I seriously just welled up in tears knowing that you might have to say goodbye.

      Look at those adorable eyes. Tammy you have such a big heart. Elsie is very fortunate to have such an angel in her life. I'm sure it helps knowing she is going to a loving family... and do you offer to babysit for the families if they go on vacation? That may be a good idea if you don't already.

        I think the reason she is the hardest so far is because she's still timid around new people and the fact that she learned everything with us. I remember the first time we were playing in our house with a tennis ball with our boys, Elsie was so scared of the ball and would run from it, now to see her chasing after it, even grabbing it out from our boys mouth. I'm just going to be sad to see her go.. D@mn I shouldn't have posted this, now I'm tearing up again..

                Tammy thank you for all that you do with animals! Did you hear that Operah is now only going to get her future animals from shelters and is doing a show on the horrible things that happen at puppy mills! i am so glad this is going to get some press time from someone who people really valve her opinion...hopefully All puppy mills will get SHUT DOWN!

                  Yeah in fact I have my DVR set to record Oprah today. I really hope they are able to put the word out and stop this crap. Most people don't realize that buying a dog from a pet store is actually supporting puppy mills because that is where they get their dogs.

                  Tammy you should be on that show! I wonder if we can help some way? Is there any petitions out there or any way BDW members can help?

                  I just love what you're doing and I want to be able to contribute some how.
