6/18/06: Well, today we are expecting and looking forward to the fostering of Alex. We will be meeting his transporter in a couple hours. It quit raining yesterday finally and today is a beautiful sunny day?..what a good day to get a new foster dog! I am sure all will go just fine???..Alex came from a home in MN and was a 1 dog household. The family had Alex since a little pup and is surrendering him due to a move out of state and into an apartment.

We have returned with 10 year old Alex! What a love. He takes treats from you, but you need to remind him to be slow, as he is anxious. We are wondering what is going through his mind - he's never been with another family his whole life. I would say he is about 70-75#, white on face, darker red coat. He really needs a bath and some knots cut out! Teeth need a cleaning as well. This dog has a wonderful warm temperament and I am sure he's confused. It is truly wonderful and incredible how they adapt and accept and trust. He has moved in and has fun with our 3 troops, ignores the cats and is perfectly happy. He's wandering around checking things out, but stays close to me. He loves the backyard - did his chores and I am sure he feels much better!

He looks very good otherwise. After a nice bath and brushing he is in top condition, I believe. Very, very sweet, calm and good natured. He is going on a visit with us this afternoon to our daughter?s home for Father?s Day. They only live about ? mile from here, have 2 small children and a large fenced in yard. So we will bring Alex and our Golden, Cheyenne, who is the same age as Alex.

We are very lucky and glad to be able to foster this wonderful boy. I did manage to get a few pictures of him as well?what a great boy and a super nice day for a new baby!
