It has been 10 months already since we started to foster Zach and although there is a very strong sense that he will not be able to stay with us forever, we are enjoying the possibility of hosting him indefinitely. With the new house almost finished, we hope to move before the middle of October so Z can enjoy the freshly laid sod and run around until he is pooped. We are in no hurry to see him leave our family circle but we known that at some point it may happen. Our Zachapoo has come a long way and we are very blessed to have been witnesses of his journey.
Time flies and every day that passes we fall more and more in live with this little troublemaker. Even the people viewing our home, which is still for sale, see his good nature behind the guard dog barking facade. I can’t imagine how hard it will be to see him take the car ride to his forever home. So much rides on finding him the perfect family and we sincerely hoped we could be it, his last move. Zach is very lean and with his new diet we fear he is not being able to put on the extra weight he needs to be healthy through this cancer scare. I really hope he does not have MCT. But we don’t get to choose how long he lives with us. We just have to hope he has many more years ahead of him.
My foster puppy turns out will be 3 in December. He is still very young and active. As the weather gets cooler and the days shorter we notice that he sleeps a bit more and asks for cuddles and attention. I love his sweet disposition. I am truly honored to be the place where he feels comfortable enough to lay down his head and snooze. Trust is a beautiful thing. I can’t imagine how I will live without his love and companionship. *Sigh*
Paws crossed it all works out for the best!
