It's a very nice new potential home. They already have two dogs, a Lurcher and a Whippet and two cats. The man is home all day, so she won't be left alone and they get to go to the beach to run every day. Sometimes they are joined by another two dogs, a terrier x and another Whippet.
The lady is very interested, which is most odd, it is usually her Husband who pesters for new pets. They were meant to be getting a 'bastard Jack Rusell' who stayed with them for a few days, but the owners decided to give it to their Grand daughter as she missed him too much, so they now they are thinking of adopting my Grey instead.
Is this your first 'foster dog'. In which case be proud of yourself that you have done your part in this greyhounds life and made a difference. And to poach a quote from fostering: The first one takes a piece of your heart when they leave which the other ones will fill Assuming you are going to foster again.( Go -wan Mrs Doyle, Father Ted voice)
And at least unlike Scuttle you won't be a failed fosterer -Rasp!
Aw- job well done! And now you'll be ready for the next one I take my hat off to all who foster- it must be hard, but at least you have the satisfaction of having given your grey a good in-between home.
I get the feeling I might still see her often . It might be a very easy goodbye. I'm sure I will still miss tripping over her on a daily basis, but I am continuing to foster, so I'll have another dog to trip over soon enough
Yes, there's always one who just goes straight to your heart. Yes, I am a failed fosterer - said failure is lying right behind my computer chair on TWO duvets making pathetic squeaking noises if I forget to tickle him for a second.
Do keep in touch with her adopters though. We've done this, made new friends along the way, and it's a wonderful feeling to see the dog you gave a start to, enjoying their forever home.
