Meet Copper!

Copper was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Virginia.  A volunteer with the local Humane Society spotted him, scared and shy, and pulled him.  BTRTOC stepped up and helped arrange transport for Copper so that he could come and be fostered in South Carolina.  He's been with me a little over a month now, and during that time I've seen him grow quite a bit.  Copper has always been a good boy and eager to please, but he's really transforming into a 'dog's dog'.  He's learned to play with toys and other dogs.  He's learned about sharing and tugging.  He's learned to roll in the grass and dig a hole (although digging is not encouraged).  He's learned to eat with our pack and enjoy pack snuggles.  He's learned to sit and to alert if anything goes 'bump' in the house.  He came to me as a foster dog, but he will leave me to be a family's ultimate companion.  I can't wait for that special family to "Meet Copper!"

Educating One Walk At A Time

My husband and I recently moved into a new home in a large neighborhood. We quickly discovered that Molly and Sully love taking walks now more than ever because they get to see so many neighbors and neighborhood dogs.  We also found ourselves educating others about fostering and dogs in general.

One night we passed a house with a few young boys playing ball outside.  One of them saw the dogs and slowly approached with curiosity in his eyes.  Sully, not accustomed to very young kids, was a bit wary at first.  However, after showing the young man how to approach a dog, Sully warmed to being petted and traded in kind with his usual licks.  We've since made friends with the kids and they're always excited to see us coming with the dogs.  We've fielded an array of questions from "why are his eyes so big?" to "where is his pee pee?"  We explained to them that Sully is our dog and that Molly is our forever foster.  They seem to hang on every word and we hope we're successful in helping educate young people about dogs.  Personally, it's important to me that children (these kids range in age from 5 to 9) learn how to greet a dog, learn that there are rescues and plenty of opportunities to adopt, and learn that dogs aren't just creatures that stay in a backyard.

The dogs are always great icebreakers when meeting new people, but I'm excited about the prospect of continuing to share them with others who are unfamiliar or unnecessarily scared of dogs.
