About The Foster Zoo

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.

Puppy:  1) A young dog that's purpose in life is to sleep deprive its owners.  2) A creature of great enjoyment and happiness.  3)  An animal that can turn a psychologically normal person bipolar overnight  (ie. "good puppy, good puppy" to "no puppy no" within a few minutes time.)  4) A term shouted out in frustration.  In this context, the word puppy could be considered a curse word.  (ie.  PUPPY!!!!!!!)

Being a puppy is a 24-hour a day, seven day a week operation.  Puppy operations don't start at 8 in the morning and end at 9 at night.  Being a puppy is a full-time job.

Here are some videos of puppy play at 2:00 in the morning:

In this video, Topher had just rescued his hedgehog from the puppies and brought it to safety with him up on the bed.  The puppies continue to play:

Then Topher jumps down on the floor to tell them enough is enough.  It's 2:30 in the morning and time to settle down.  The puppies settle down and Bella even hides under the bed like she's telling him, "it wasn't me!"  (I am trying my best not to laugh in this one.)

Finally, everybody starts to settle down...

...Shiloh makes her way up on the bed with Topher and Mr. Hedgehog.  (Mr. Hedghog used to be Santa Hedgehog, but the puppies ripped the Santa hat off.)

...and we all finally get some sleep.
