    Well......surprise for most of you anyways ;)

    I'm DEFINITELY bringing home a new dog tomorrow and she's a Bodhi clone! haha

    It was a bit iffy if I was going to be able to get her before she got adopted, but now it's for sure since tomorrow is the day I get her and they are closed today. She's going to be a foster dog for now while I work on her many issues, but she *may* become a permanent addition, if it all works out. Either way, I'll foster her until she gets a permanent home.

    We've got a lot of work to do with her. She's horribly shy at first, but when she get's to know you she is a loud, obnoxious puppy who loves to mouth and jump on people. She's basically a train, on or off the leash. She'll bowl right into you and still keep going. On leash she does her best to play "drag the human" the entire time. And she's loud!

    But she's also very sweet, and I know she's very smart. She just needs to learn some manners and that most people are ok.

    OK, so, these two pics are old. About a week or so old while she was at the shelter. But they are the only recognizable pics I have right now. Of course I will get more when she get's here. Or after she settles in, whichever. But you will get pics.

    Rizzo is her name and I think it suits her. I'm going to keep it Rizzo I think.

    (RD I know! I can't keep my mouth shut. I'm excited so sue me! :p hah!)

    She's so sad at the shelter:

    After I get her home, I may not be on for a few days, you know settling her in and all that. I'm going to be busy, so don't worry if I go missing, you will get your pics eventually. lol

    lol I'm excited too. I'm picking up her tomorrow and seeing how my roommates Rottie likes her. If it goes well I'll get pics, if not I won't be able to. I'm not betting it will go well, but we will see. Regardless how Pog likes her, I'm still taking her home.

    I knew you couldn't stay quiet until she was home. :D Heehee!

    God, I am BEYOND stoked for you and I can't wait to get to "know" her as you do.

    And uh, I think I said the exact same thing as you when I brought Zaphod home a bit over a month ago.

    And I think he's kinda almost permanent now.

    :p

    But you have willpower. Best of luck using it. :D

    How exciting !!!! Fostering is great !!! Nothing is better than helping out and finding a forever home ... whether it's yours or not ! It's hard to let them go , but the personal rewards are wonderful !!
