Over the past few months I’ve become obsessed with finding a new place to live though I keep wavering on whether or not we should continue our search right now or push it back for a few more months. I have alerts set up on my phone for any new home that pops up on the market as well as any house that’s had a recent price adjustment, but there are actually deeper reasons than simply wanting an office to work in and craving that additional space that our current apartment lacks.
I really, really miss fostering dogs.
Over the weekend, Bryan and I had the opportunity to attend a beautiful outdoor dinner in Mountainville, NY, to support the Canine Sanctuary, a nonprofit owned by my best friend’s amazing aunt. By the way, you should totally all stop by the petfinder website and show some love and also like them on Facebook 🙂 Anyway, the reason I bring it up is because there is something that ignites within me when I have the opportunity to spend some time with other dog owners/lovers.
It’s an incredible experience to foster an animal to wellness—to watch the transformation of a scared, insecure pup to a confident and happy dog with a family. Over the years, Bryan and I fostered seven dogs, but once we found and co-adopted Buster, we had to stop since we can only keep one pet at a time where we currently live.
It’s something we talk about often. How nice it would be to take in a few more dogs and get involved again with that dog-loving community, to attend more adoption events/benefit dinners, and get to know our pittie family. I love meeting other people equally as obsessed with their furfriends as we are (and it’s nice to sit around the table and share pictures of our animals!).
Here are some photos from this past weekend. Buster was mostly on very good behavior but he was hungry and saw some delicious eats so naturally he wanted all of it. Then he slept the entire way home in the car.
