Fostering is hard. There’s nothing really easy about fostering. You have to introduce them to your pack if you have multiple animals, you have to usually train them, you don’t know their backgrounds (puppies can be easier with this but the amount of poop and pee is insane), and you have to let them go after a period of time of building a bond with them. I will say though, it is incredibly rewarding to find them the best home. But until then, it is hard work.
And then there’s also fostering a dog that didn’t have the best past and they are a lot of extra work on top of having (3) dogs already. They have anxiety and trust issues and trying to find them a home is that much harder. Incidents happen within the pack and then we just create a more stressful environment for your own pack. There’s no calm and the pack + new member isn’t completely balanced. I rant about having a balanced pack with balanced personalities too and I hate that we aren’t feeling balanced. I am definitely feeling it today and have been for a while. We had a bad incident happen a few nights ago which created a lot of set backs for multiple parties.
I hope everyone knows that fostering isn’t easy. Finding a foster isn’t easy. And take all of these stresses and more and then you have a rescue. Rescue work isn’t easy. Praise all the people who foster and are doing rescue work or work at a shelter or sanctuary. We often times have too big of a heart to want to see something in a worse spot and want to help. And it’s draining but rewarding but draining. All is okay now and I’m physically and mentally healing.
I just hope Leia finds her people soon. And for those who think I should keep her, I really don’t want to hear it. #adoptthepancake
These videos were taken just a few months apart — the first video is the first time I played with a toy after being rescued from a neglectful home and the second and third is the very same toy and I had some new hair and grew a bunch! #mangesurvivor @barkbox

Global anti-BSL day 2018
Thank you to @animalfarmfoundation @spca_annexe_mtl & @hsi_canada for the materials that help educate our neighbours & fellow citizens. Thank you to all the cities that embraced the principal of anti-BSL day by having protests, marches, vigils & outreach days.
We're all in this together & together we will succeed in eliminating BSL worldwide.
Please remind your provincial/state government that YOU want legislation barring municipalities from enacting BSL within your province/state.
Change starts with your town but can't end there, thank you to all those who keep the ball rolling.
Journée mondiale anti-LSR 2018
Merci à @animalfarmfoundation @spca_annexe_mtl & @hsi_canada pour les matériaux qui aident à éduquer nos voisins et nos concitoyens. Merci à toutes les villes qui ont embrassé le principe de la journée anti-LSR en organisant des manifestations, des marches, des veillées et des journées de sensibilisation.
Nous sommes tous ensemble une équipe et ensemble nous réussirons à éliminer LSR dans le monde entier.
Veuillez rappeler à votre gouvernement provincial / d'état que vous voulez une loi interdisant aux municipalités d'adopter la LSR dans votre province / état.
Le changement commence avec votre ville mais ne peut pas s'arrêter là, merci à tous ceux qui font bouger les choses.
Just look at these 3 happy Lexy smiles 😁
