Another announcement

Seems it's the week for announcements around The Lurchers this week!

Firsty, though, to say I am completely overwhelmed by your comments on yesterday's post would be a gross understatement. To know I have such good friends in cyberland, and that you care about someone you've never even met, has meant more than I can ever tell you. You are all such good people and I words cannot express the gratitude I feel right now. Thank you all, so very much.

Now to the announcement. Brodie the Foster has a new home. Well, actually, it's not a new home at all. Brodie the Foster is now Greyhound No.1 and has found his forever sofa right here with me and The Lurchers.

I have joined that worldwide club of failed fosterers!

  6. You have a good heart Angela and your dogs will pay you back in abundance. The best medicine for you is kissing those sweet scented heads everyday!

  8. Welcome to the club! The stray collie who turned up in my yard 23rd July is still here ~ dog warden forgot to collect him & I didn't find his people. He decided that a very dear friend of mine needed him & he split his time between the 2 of us, asking for me to walk him the 3 miles to his other house! Friend went on a 4-day trip 2 1/2 weeks ago, so collie is still with me. I named him "Juke" or "Jukkel" in full ~ Romanes for dog ~ & he seems quite happy with that name. He keeps looking for Master & waits in the entrance to my yard for his car, but he's started sleeping against my back at night instead of under my bed or by the front door. This gives us the Spaniel Bookends, Beddy, Wolfie, Lurcher (shhhh) & Collie ~ 6 loving dogs.

    I'm glad you have the love of Brodie to make up for Himself. [Every time I let myself enter a relationship, since s went, & it's gone wrong I seem to have ended up with another animal! I get animals under other circumstances too: I haven't really had so many relationships that have ended leaving me with 6 dogs, 5 cats, 2 ferrets, 2 horses, 3 goats (Pan was dispatched last Sat), 10 ducks, 3 geese, & many chickens & a fishy...]

  10. Failed fosterers rock! *On a side note, just read yesterdays post and i am so sorry to hear the news, but relieved to see that "relief" was one of the adjectives you described feeling. While a huge change, certainly, in your life, it must be for the best of you are able to articulate "relief" as one of the feelings. Best wishes and lots of love.

  12. Every rattie that has ever entered this house for just a 'little while' still lives here. As a foster mom, I too, fail greatly.

  17. Brodie is a really lovely boy and I too, am just a tiny bit pleased that I'll be seeing lots of him and that he's not going anywhere!
