So my mom is seriously thinking of fostering a Golden. We filled out an application and everything. It was more my idea but im glad shes willing to do it. A while back she/we were thinking about breeding her Golden (shes a therapy dog and an awsome one at) but after joining several dog forums I learned that she was not the best candidate to be bred. Well I told my mother that if she wanted to see how hard it was to raise a litter of puppies that maybe she should foster a pregnant bitch or a mother dog with puppies. So we started to speak to a lady that used to show GSD's and there is a woman that rescues Goldens and Golden mixes on a small scale. We went down to her house (it was a 2 hour drive) filled out an application and are waiting to be called! Now who knows how long this is going to take, we may get a call tonight, or we may get a call a year from now, I dont know but I sure and excited!
