THE JOYS OF FOSTERING A DOG
Day 1 - Hank immediately greeting my daughter!
Above is Hank greeting my daughter in the first few minutes of meeting us yesterday. An immediate bond was struck between the two of them.
This was Day 2 with Hank after a peaceful night of good sleep for all of us. Pictured is Hank and my daughter out for a mile walk around the park. He's good around other dogs and people. We're working on getting him to accept our sweet kitty. If you live in the Denver, Colorado area and are interested in adopting a great dog, email me. He's a Treeing Walker Hound. He's had a rough life. Often when these dogs don't meet with approval as hunting dogs they are beaten and left to die. Hank was found as a stray in Missouri and has gone from one shelter to another. He's amazingly sweet and loves human companionship. He's a quick learner too.
Hank is learning to accept kitty :) It's kitty's first time being in a house with a dog. They're both doing well, though a close eye is kept at all times.
Hank loves human companionship. He's a quick learner and always seeks to please and to understand. He's great in the car. Loves to cuddle. Walks well on a gentle lead. He's 2 or 3 years old. He's not a barker but he will alert you and seems to make a good protector.
Hank is such a cuddler. He loves being near my daughter and resting his head on her. Animals are so healing. Their love is so unconditional and non-judgmental. The world is a better place because of them!
We lost both of our dogs within a few months of each other almost two years ago. We were devestated. We are now ready to share our home and our hearts again and are looking for an older dog as we are not up to all that comes with raising a pupply. I had decided to find a dog at a shelter or rescue. However, we live in Racine,Wisconsin and would not know how to handle transportation. I know you are looking for a home in your area,but if nothing works out, maybe you would keep us in mind. This is one of the longest periods of times in my life that I have been without a pet. My husband and I are in our early fifties. We have four grown children and it is just the two of us at home now. We have a small home,but a large fenced in yard. My husband had his own hunting dog Cocoa. She was a beautiful,sweet lady and he was crushed when she contracted cancer and had to be put down. That was in 1998. I believe Hank would be just the ticket!!! We are not rushing into anything so ,,,,,,, I do hope for Hanks sake that you find his forever home soon! Thanks, Laura
Pet Photography is always a challenge, especially since the photographer does not know how well behaved the animal is or if it will sit still for half an hour. I was able to really move in close and capture her while she sits and relaxes. It was a good experience and lots of fun! But you have done great job...simply awesome.

"Ask not what an animal can do for you; ask what you can do for an animal." Jasper
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
"I was so moved by the intelligence, sense of fun and personalities of the animals I worked with on (the movie) Babe that by the
end of the film I
was a vegetarian."
