About The Foster Zoo

My photo
We have decided to blog our adventures again. So much has changed since we last blogged. Bella and Shiloh both went to their forever homes and they are in wonderful families. June Bug got adopted. We quit fostering dogs after those adoptions because Tanker's epilepsy got bad. We quit doing therapy dog work because Tanker's epilepsy got bad. Tanker passed away June 9th, 2013. We adopted a senior border collie named Shania Tankerbelle in his memory. We still have our two cats, Sweet Pea and Little Bit. Wes has started rescuing pitiful bettas from Wal-Mart and we currently have seven. We have a camper. We camp. We have focused on giving our animals the best lives possible. We are The Foster Zoo Crew and we like to have fun.

Love is a great thing

I have to brag on the Zoo Crew.  Everybody is getting along.  Everybody is letting Wes sleep and recover.  Just today, Bella and Shiloh seem to understand potty training.  We have not had a single accident all day.  They both go to the door and whimper when they need to go out.

House is a wreck.  It is so wet outside from all the rain.  Doggies have to be wiped down everytime they go outside because of all the rain and mud.  But, who cares?  We have each other.  Seeing all the animals get along (mainly Neo) makes me very happy.  Seeing Wes smile when me or one of the zoo crew gives him a kiss on the cheek makes my world go round. 

Love is a great thing.

An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.
Martin Buber

Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Albert Einstein

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
Anatole France

Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
Alfred A. Montapert

With an endless assortment of children and animals living under one roof, there was always some absurd crisis that gave comic relief to my problems.
Sally Jessy Raphael

The fate of animals is of greater importance to me than the fear of appearing ridiculous; it is indissolubly connected with the fate of men.
Émile Zola
