National Dog Day
It's always interesting to have new fosters because it's kind of like detective work. Part of our job is figuring out how a dog likes to play and interact and what his doggie sounds really mean. Saburo was playing like a nut with me on my bed tonight. I was taking the cover and covering him up and then wrestling with him a little bit - he was making the craziest noises. I've never heard those come out of him! He was having a blast and so was I - it's so fun to have a rambunctious "teenager" dog in the house. Teenage in dog years, that is. Saburo really needs a home with a dog that loves to play. I can tell he just wants to break free and be a big old goof, but I have too many members of the "fun police" here. Isn't it odd how some dogs just are little party poopers? While I was goofing around with Saburo, though, I wouldn't let any of the other dogs end his fun. I think that's why he got a little more excitable tonight.
I think one of the reasons I will miss Saburo so much when he gets adopted is because he is sooooo photogenic! He is so easy to take pictures of and always available. I was trying to take some pictures of TRex the other day and I get the feeling he's been watching a little too much National Geographic because he was definitely acting like the camera was trying to steal his soul. : )
