It seems Charlie had other plans, or maybe my three-day weekend induced laziness just rubbed off on him. Ever since about 7:30 pm Sunday, Charlie and I have been nothing but a pile of cat napping blobs. The temperatures plummeted Sunday night, so between that and the fact that we had roughly nothing on the agenda Monday, we found it completely reasonable to stay in our pajamas for the majority of the day (well, me in my pjs and Charlie is in his Snood).
There aren’t many things better than a dog who follows you around and sleeps whenever you stop moving. Charlie decided to grace me with the old man side of his personality for this stay, as opposed to the puppy side that his mom tells me is quite rambunctious. I wouldn’t have minded the puppy side, but getting to lay low on a day off is so welcomed!
Hope you all had a nice day off work if you were lucky enough to have the holiday! For those of you who didn’t get the day off, sorry for rubbing it in :-).
In a recent attempt at a somewhat DIY project (more on that later) I was looking over old foster photographs. Going through the hundreds of photos I have of my first foster Zabora – now known as Medivka – made me miss her. Made me miss her really bad. She was such a gem of a dog – a dazzling, tender personality hiding behind soulful honey eyes. Just thinking about it makes me want to scoop her up for one of those snuggles she was so good at. Being stuck in nostalgia, I’ve decided to re-post some photos of her, especially since so many of you discovered Peace, Love, and Fostering after she left.
Her story is quite remarkable, actually. An Elderbull predicted to be somewhere over eight years old, with suspected creaky bones and a weird neurological disorder that left her bumbling all over the place. She was cute as a button and sweet as sugar, but was continually overlooked at the shelter because of her age. Lucky that Aleksandra from Love & a Six-Foot Leash knows a great thing when she sees it and plucked her out of the shelter right as soon as she could. Then hundreds of people came together to support Z’s road to recovery, proving to us all how amazing this community really is. You can read about Zabora’s story on Love and a Six-Foot Leash’s posts about her, and right here on PLF in our early days.
She is doing amazing in her home, by the way! Which is no surprise considering what a sweetie she is. Here are some of my favorite photos of her that show just how charming her little pittie personality is.
Can you tell she does a lot of sleeping? Then there was that time I fell flat on my butt and she ambled over to the rescue. What a love.
It’s always nice (and, yes, maybe a teenie bit sad) to look back on past fosters. You miss them, but you’re also so satisfied knowing they’re happily sleeping in the homes of their forever families. I’m so thrilled that’s the way the story went for our beloved Zabora/Medivka!
I mentioned on the PLF Facebook page once that Baxter really loves being warm. The best way you can tell this is by the way he sleeps (most of the time at least). If he is chilly, he’ll sleep in his little peanut ball. If he is toasty warm? He’ll sleep sprawled out, like this:
Looks pretty comfy, huh?
