So, apparently I’m gonna be a mom again.

Or at least a foster-mom. With the Woodlands closing, lots of adorable little snozes need temporary (& permanent) homes, so this weekend we’ll be taking in a charming new boy. The details have yet to be worked out and I’m not actually sure which boy we’ll be getting, but he’s a greyhound, so you know he’ll be adorable. There’s a fairly good chance I’m going to be a failure at fostering and just end up with three dogs. We’ll see how it goes.

For those unfamiliar with greyhounds, the above pic is not of dead one. The ‘cockroach’ or ‘dead bug’ position is assumed by the greyhound at its most content and comfortable. Man, I love these dogs.


  1. Congratulations!

  2. Thanks! There are going to be some changes around here. Two dogs is a pair, but three’s a pack, so we’ll be using muzzles more, I think, so we don’t end up cleaning arterial spray from the walls. Stay tuned for updates.

  3. Wow. Are you sure you’re going to be able to let him go upon location of an appropriate family? That would be my biggest fear about dog fostering.

  4. I don’t know. They actually call it foster-failing when you end up just adopting the dog you were fostering. I’m a sucker, but we’ll see how it goes.
