We stood on the grass as the van made its way over the
gravel driveway.  As it came to a stop,
E. emerged with a brown cocker spaniel in her arms. 

“This one’s yours!” she said as she handed the dog to me.
“Isn’t he a beauty?”


The kids gathered around me as we said hello to our first
foster dog Brock.

That was a year ago. 

We’ve fostered fourteen dogs since. 

Many people don’t understand why we have chosen to take in
dogs on a temporary basis as fosters versus adopt. 

Today, I’m explaining my famliy's decision to foster versus adopt over at Another
, the blog created by my dear friend Jennifer Barbour.   I am a
huge fan of Jennifer’s blog and in particular, her Philanthropy Friday series, which she uses to bring
awareness to various non-profit organizations and social causes. Jennifer’s
dedication to using her blog for social good is one of the many things that
turned me into a faithful follower. I am honored be featured today on Jennifer’s
Philanthropy Friday series to talk about fostering shelter
dogs. Won’t you
please join me there for my dog story?

  1. Fostering is wonderful! You must be a very organized and even temoered person since you don’t know what temperment each pup will bring. This one sure us a cutie! Not sure that I’d be able to give her up.
