Picking up a new foster dog tonight ;)

I really must have a screw loose... the rescue that I volunteer with (the one we got Duncan and Dharma from) put out word that they have an emergency and need someone to foster a little dog. I of course volunteered... She's a stray and has been kept in a garage by her rescuers since they have an aggressive dog inside. They say she's a poodle chi mix but I saw a pic of her and she looks more like lahsa or shihtzu mix maybe. I'm picking her up tonight. They say she gets along with everyone and all kinds of dogs and cats. I'm hoping that since she's a small dog she'll get adopted quickly. I'm also hoping that I haven't gotten in over my head and that all the doggies get along.

I know KD! I've lost my mind. I wouldn't have offered if it hadn't been an emergency.

I'm really not such a good person. It was an emergency so I thought I'd just help out. Most of the other foster moms have 2 and 3 foster dogs in addition to their own 4-

I am falling in love with her but believe it or not, I do know my limit. LOL :smileyvery-happy: Whoever adopts this little dog will be a very lucky person.

Thank you Donna! What a nice thing to say. This rescue requires 10 day quarantine from other pets and she'll be done with quarantine tomorrow so I'll introduce everyone then. Quarantine is pretty strict- change of clothes before entering the rest of the house, wash hands before going near your other dogs. But it's really for the good of the fosters personal dogs. Mitzi hasn't shown any sign of sickness- Yay!
