Terrier Boot Camp News

One of our foster families, Leslie and Danny, are affectionately known as "terrier boot camp" as they frequently foster small terrier mixes with big terrier attitudes and get them on the straight and narrow when it comes to transforming into good canine citizens.

Leslie has started a blog for their current foster, Ginger, a young terrier mix: Ginger's Blog.

They also received an update from the forever mom of a former foster, Eddie, yesterday. Eddie, a JRT mix, was in foster care last fall:

Greetings Leslie,

Eddie is doing great! We just love that "Liitle Guy". He has settled in very well and certainly knows the routines of the house. Both my husband and I have said we don't think we could have found a better fit! He has also adjusted well with our grand-daughters of which we just added a third in January! The two olders ones (2&4) both say "we really love Eddie!" We were a little concerned at first put he now knows his "rank" and all is going well.

Russ is looking forward to a little warmer weather and then Eddie and him can resume joining Russ while roller-blading. He loved that last fall. He enjoys our walks and running around our backyard. Lots of energy but he also enjoys spending equal laptime with Russ and I in the evenings!

I took him to the vet for the first time last week. He is doing well. He hasn't had any allergies since we got him but I know the season is just around the corner, so time will tell.

I've attached a few pics of Eddie -- our trip to Duluth last fall and misc ones. Hope you enjoy them (and they email ok!)

Thank you for the great work you did with Eddie while he was with you. We really appreciate your gift!

Take care and keep in touch........

Russ and Patty
