Yep. Snickers went to his new home this afternoon, and Randall and I came home with a new foster.

His name is Oracle, but we're calling him OC for short. He's a temp...will probably only be here 2-3 weeks until I go to Dallas, but he's a new experience. Definitely not used to being an indoor dog, but he'll learn.

He doesn't have a blog entry yet, but I'll switch the one I had with Snickers over to this little guy sometime over the weekend. Meanwhile, here are a few pictures to introduce him to you.

OC now has ownership of the foster dog blog. Smiley

There are some pics up there, but I still need to upload them to Photobucket.

And an update.

OC has done really well here for the last couple of months. He was neutered in early April, and he settled back in really nicely when I came back from Dallas (he weekended with a nice lady and her daughter). He's been a real joy to have around. An absolute sweetheart, and Randall and I started thinking that he should hit some adoption events later this month.

Well, this week, the shelter got an inquiry on him, and the prospective adopter and her daughter came over this morning. OC did some serious sucking up and bonding, and the woman really liked him. Enough to where she and her daughter will come over tomorrow and bring their dog. This is the real test because OC had a history (pre-bauble removal) of problems with larger dogs. This dog is a cattle dog/terrier mix of about 45 pounds, but she's older, fixed and the owner describes her as "wider than she is tall", so hopefully the intro will go well.

If it does, the little OC has himself his forever home. Smiley So send some good thoughts his was tomorrow afternoon for a good and uneventful meeting.

Fantastic!

Yeah. This one feels really good. The mini dachshund we fostered earlier this year, Snickers, was a slam dunk. No question he was adoptable. OC was sort of a question mark because he'd never had much interaction with people, so he had a lot of learning to do. But he learned quick and well. I'm really proud of how he's done.

I'm going to miss him, but he really sucked up to Beverly and she couldn't help but fall for him. I'll think he'll be happy.

Lyric and Randall, I just want to say you should both be really proud of the fantastic work you do with your foster dogs.  It's a rare human -- let alone two in the same house! -- who will take on the physical labor and emotional vulnerability required to be good foster parents for any animals.

My family has adopted many stray and/or abandoned animals, including all of our current 14 cats, and even rescued/liberated (OK, stole  Wink ) a dog we saw being horribly abused many years ago.  My most recent dog, who died several months ago, was a foster who I adopted from her foster-person.  (I miss her horribly.)  But even with decades of experience with animals, I don't know if I could open my heart to a foster animal, knowing I'll have to let go at some point.

What you are doing with your foster animals is a wonderful thing.  Thank you for sharing it with us.

It's actually much easier to do than we thought it would be, the key for me at least is thinking of the dog as "our foster dog" instead of "our dog".
