Walk, Foster, Adopt A Dog
Yes, I went from walking a dog at my local animal shelter, to fostering the dog, and now adopting him. Both my dog Valentino and I think all dog lovers should do the same!
Walking dogs at the local shelter got me through that rough period of time immediately following the loss of my dog Tidbit. The pleading eyes of a quiet hound dog caught my eye and I began walking him when visiting the shelter.
But of course, I fell for Valentino and his story -- he'd been at the shelter for eight months before I finally brought him home as a foster dog. He was also positive for heart worms and his treatment continues for this disease.
Our bonding period was swift and strong. I knew together we would always belong. I am proud to say we adopted one another this past May. My marvelous mutt of American English Coonhound blood and I are forever bound in our hearts and home.
