            Tammy, my husband asked how you ever got started fostering bostons? Your little Elsie looks just like our Otto. We could almost hear him snorting!

              That is sad and exactly the reason why I am too scared to become a foster puppy mom! You are such a good person for doing that! I am sure she will have a happy life!

                  We have the Sony Alpha DSLR, we got it when it first came out, but I think the price has gone down since then. It really is a great camera.

                  Yeah, the new mom is suppose to call me tonight and let me know how her first night went. I fell asleep crying because I missed her so much, it's the evening hours when she starts to wind down she starts with having her ball right next to her, then starts kissing Chulo, that is what puts her to sleep, then right before shes out for the night, she cuddles right on my lap. I miss that so much.. This morning was hard too because I'm used to her cute little face being at my feet in the morning waiting for her food. :-( I can't stop thinking about how she was when we first got her, and it makes me sad thinking that she doesn't have anyone to cuddle with her right now because she doesn't trust them yet. She is definitly my hardest to adopt out, she really stole my heart.

                  We actually just started with donating money each month, then when we decided to get our second dog (of course he was through the BT rescue group) we were just blown away with them and all they do. So we started to help out with foster home visits, then moved to store meet and greets, Our first foster was a temp foster, the normal foster family were going on vacation for a couple of weeks and needed a sitter for him (he was a special needs Boston, his front legs were fused 90 degrees, so he had to scoot around with his back legs) Well two days after we got him he jumped off the couch (normal thing for him to do) but he became paralized.. Long story short, we thought we were going to have to put him to sleep because he couldn't move, we had to spoon feed him water, and manually express his bladder, we finally decided to try one last thing, Acupuncture on him, sure enough he started to respond to the treatment. We ended up keeping him for 2 months until he was able to pee on his own, and move around better, the perm foster home felt that moving him back with them in their 4 dog house hold would only delay his progress. Once he was almost back to normal he went back home with his perm foster family, who actually ended up adopting him. :-) After that we just new we wanted to help more and started fostering on a regular basis.

                    Wow Tammy you must be so proud of yourself. That has got to be one of the hardest jobs. I couldnt imagine fostering a dog that I fel in love with and having to give them up. OHHHHH I'm so sorry
