Happy New Year!!!

We’ve been taking the week to rest do a million other things that we never have time to do.  While Lola was at a temporary foster home while we traveled up to NY for Christmas, she got some good play time in with an previous MABB adoptable dog, who is now living the life!  This was their first foster experience and since Lola is such a cutie and it went so well, we’re hoping we have a new foster home in the MABB network.  Good Job Lolabug!

If your thinking about new year’s resolutions this year, you should consider the thought of fostering a dog.  Why not give it a try?  If it’s not your cup of tea, the good news is they’re not gonna be with you forever!  If you find a good rescue group in your area, like we have, they will be flexible to suit your needs.  We have an active male dog, live in the city, and do not have a yard.  We do a lot of on-leash meeting of other dogs as we live in an urban neighborhood that’s super dog friendly (a plus!  unless you have a leash reactive dog).  Despite the specific-ness of our home, MABB has been pretty successful with appropriate matches to best suit our household.  Make sure if you do consider fostering, you put the leg work into finding a great and supportive rescue group, it’s worth it!It’s not for everyone, it’s true.  But you’ll never know unless you give it a try!  And disclaimer, ALL family members should be on board…you know your family best.  Despite the fact that Brian rolls his eyes about this stuff sometimes, he’s the first to suggest keeping some of our past fosters… I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to respond to “Why don’t we just keep him/her!” with “We can’t have three dogs in this house…if we adopt it will be the end of fostering until we move”.

But seriously, wouldn’t you have trouble saying goodbye to this face?

total wigglebutt mode!

We’re preparing ourselves because Lolabug may just be flying the coop soon!  We’ll catch ya in the new year!
