Yes, I am frustrated. Yes, I'm even pissed off. And, yes, I'm at my wit's end. But you know what? I'll figure it out. I have made a promise to these dogs - not just our permas, but our foster dogs and a dog we're dog sitting for an indefinite period of time. This is not a casual decision and I think that's what frustrates me so much about people giving up on dogs too quickly. I was emailing with a friend of mine who adopted one of my most difficult fosters and she was telling me that she does second guess her decision to adopt a couple of dogs at times but her commitment to her dogs and our organization is too great for her to to do anything but keep on keeping on and loving these little guys. Thanks Robin!!
It's a tricky situation to be annoyed by because we don't want our foster dogs to live a miserable life and be disliked because of their behavior. We just want them to be given a fighting chance. It's funny I think our society gives up on marriages and rescued animals too easily. There's probably some wonderful tidbit in there for a therapist to get a hold of and cure me of all my nuttiness. But until then, I'll watch out for my son, myself and our diggie dog zoo.
Why the tulip picture? Because it's spring and tulips are one of my favorite flowers (pink one specifically) and I took the picture. AND it's purty. :)
