This past week Amber had herself a lovely vacation at another foster's home. Her foster family was heading out of town for a much needed weekend up north at the cabin. I asked her foster sitter to write up a bit about her experience with Amber.
“Amber arrived on Thursday and met my four boisterous boy dogs, who are much larger than she is. She handled it well and before long she was joining them outside to explore the yard. She loved bouncing after them as they chased a tennis ball.
"Amber enjoyed licking my toes (ack!), nibbling on popcorn that we shared with the dogs, snoozing on the couch, and hopping up on the bed to keep me company while I did some reading.
"All dogs sleep in crates at my house and Amber followed the "kennel up" bedtime announcement. She settled in with her snuggle blanket and was quiet all night. Well, except for the first night when she had saved her supper until bedtime. Then she could be heard crunching her kibble shortly after the lights went out.
"We had also been putting a water dish in her crate but she tipped it, so we put it in our bathroom. She mostly just used the water dish that my dogs drink from which is near the door to the deck.
"Amber learned that when my dogs ring the potty bells, they all go outside. She'd run to join the pack by the door when they'd ring. It was so fun to watch her push her way to the front of the line and then bounce and hop around the yard.
"I think she had a good staycation here and really did well with the whole experience. We sure loved having her stay with us! She is a brave little girl who is a tad bit shy yet, but seems to adjust to changes in her world pretty well.”
