Bears New Temporary Friend
Please let me introduce you to Dooley. He is a 5 year old Labradoodle that we are fostering for a wonderful rescue called Daisy's Place, a group that devotes itself to Retrievers and mixes 6 years old and up. Older dogs can be hard to find permanent homes for since so many folks are under the misconception that they don't have much time to live and really don't do anything. I am here to tell you otherwise. Before I adopted Bear, there was not a golden (or mix) that joined our family that was under the age of 8. They were busy and Angel whom we adopted at 8 lived to be 16 and certainly got into her share of mischief! You can visit the website at http://daisysplace.org.
Dooley is one big hunk of love! Even though he has the poodle coat he has a Lab personality and certainly a Lab rudder tail! He likes playing with tennis balls, wrestling with Bear, chasing Bear, being chased by Bear, napping by Bear, following Michael around, following me around, following Bear around. No, we do not need to adopt him. If you have ever considered fostering for a rescue or shelter, you should do it. Yes, it can be difficult to let them go (sometime) but you have given a dog a chance at life!
