I received a call from the local shelter to ask if I would foster two more dogs, Jack Russells. We have 8 dogs of our own and are currently fostering a German Shepherd with heart worms and mange. But there is always more room at the inn.
As I try to work on my computer writing articles there are tons of dogs barking, running, playing with toys and doing their business on the floor. Just when I thought my life would get quiet and laid back after my daughters left home, now it is utter chaos and a real circus. In times of utter exhaustion, I ask myself why we do this. In that moment without fail one of these little angels will jump in my lap, lick my hand and wag a tail. I sigh and respond with a kiss and say, “I love you, angel. Thank God you are here.”
