Mom loves education stuff that's for sure and when she can talk about education, dogs and children - her three favorite topics, all at once, well there is no stopping her. Mom asked me to say thanks to everyone for their nice comments about her post.
Not only was Mom's post very serious yesterday, she was also very serious this morning during breakfast. She said she had something important to tell me and I have to tell you my friends - I was kind of worried, maybe she was going to send me away or worse!! I kept my paws crossed that the bad news didn't involve bad news about our boat or canceling our visit to Gramma's in two weeks!!
So I sat down and listened to her - and boy was I relieved - it wasn't bad news at all. I think it's kind of good news as a matter of fact! Mom said we were going to be fostering a dog in need. He would be coming to live with us and I would have my very own playmate and friend!
I don't have all the details, but he is seven years old and a black Labrador just like me. Mom says he weighs about 90 pounds (that's good because he will make me look thinner), he was surrender by his owners and he has special needs because he has epilepsy. Here is a picture of him!
I had no idea what epilepsy is but it sounds like this poor guy needs to take medicine every day so he won't be sick. The Labs4Rescue volunteer Glenda said we would love our new friend - he is apparently very nice, loves to go for rides and very social - JUST LIKE ME!
Mom was so excited she asked Kathleen and Wally Cat over at Snazzy Petz to make up a special big boy collar just for him. Mom also said my collars were way to girly for a labbie boy and while we will have to share somethings like our toys and beds, there are some things that can be all our own.
The new guy isn't coming until the 21st of July so I'm sure there will be lots of activity going on around here. I like to share with Mollie and Zach at Gramma's but I have had my humans all to myself for almost a year now. I know it will be hard at first but I promised Mom to try really hard and make our new foster dog feel right at home.
Mom is always talking about No Child Left Behind when she is talking about work stuff and Wally suggested maybe it should be No Dog Left Behind!
I think he is right - we are certainly living the No LAB Left Behind motto! Maybe we could start a movement!!
