Bella and Maddie

Another lazy blog post for me where the dogs do most of the work. Ha!  This is Bella, a young hound, we are fostering for ten days.  She actually leaves on Saturday and then we will be free of fosters for the next month and a half due to our busy agility trial schedule.


As far as playmates, the Lab was too much. The Brissel Catahoulamation Sparrier was too little.  But Bella is just right.  It is so nice to have a good way to burn off some stressed, rescue dog steam.

And it is fun to watch!  I did get a some video for you folks that like video. I personally think the pictures are a lot more fun and silly to look at though.
We heard that our last foster who was transported to a shelter in Maine was adopted a few days later by an older couple. Perfect! I thought she would be great for an older person who just wants a cuddle bug and walking companion.










Bella needs just the opposite. I would not label her as high energy, but she is still such a puppy and would do well with an active, busy family with kids and/or a playful dog. She will also probably need a good month to really settle into a routine and just get over the newness and excitement of it all.

Bella is a cutie. Looks like she and Maddie are having fun together. I'm with you. If my guys are wound up and going to be playing, I use muzzles--having to get staples twice taught me that lesson. As you mentioned, Greyhounds' skin is so thin, it just take a little cut to turn into a big tear. But, if it's just a potty break, I don't muzzle.

Glad to hear how quickly your fosters were adopted. Mine were too and I have enjoyed keeping with them in their foster families.

I'm among those who love to see a video ;) Maddie's moves remind me so much of Java! <3

I love the pictures of them playing. Those mouths and rolling eyes, skinny ribs, tail whirling, feet everywhere, and floppy ears. A Great time was had by all!

Bella looks like a very good dog. Plenty frisky, but looks like she knows how to play nicely.

Maddie always plays with such joy and abandon. Always fun to see!

I love watching them play. Shiloh and Parker (Kristen's lab mix) used to play like that and never a scratch was made. I think it looks like a lot of fun!!!! Pure joy!
