One of the best parts of fostering puppies is playing with them. Everyone knows that puppies are unbelievably cute, funny, and, did I mention cute?? But these guys and gals really drive the point home with their antics. I especially enjoy watching Yukon Cornelius(the runt with the funny ears) attempting to play tug with his… Read More Foster Puppies vs. The Flirt Pole
I had the arduous task of clean-up after being benched with a gnarly stomach flu for the last week. In order to accomplish this goal, it required me to figure out something to do with the Christmas pups while I got into it. As per usual, my first thought is to let my 4 girls,… Read More Socialization, puppies, and my girls
Our former foster, Alice, sticks out in my mind because she was such an energetic, happy dog right from the get go.

This ritual was interrupted yesterday because I decided to… Read More Puppy Playtime (Video)

But sometimes, out of necessity, we form really deep, special bonds with some of them. Genny… Read More Former Foster Update-Genny
Right around five weeks of age, the personalities of puppies really start to shine. They become the quintessential "puppies" that we all think of when we hear the word. They become rambunctious, playful, curious and, as foster parents, we get to be a part of all that cuteness! Fortunately, with technology being so accessible these… Read More MOAR PUPPIES!
One of my favorite milestones in raising young puppers is their first trip out into our backyard. Up to this point, they have only ever felt tarp or pool plastic under their feet. Because of that fact, the pups always go a bit crazy of this fun new thing called "grass". They fight it, try… Read More Foster Puppies, Meet Outside
