I Said Yes to Fostering a Puppy

I became a foster dog mom earlier this year, and have saved 3 adult dogs. When it came to puppies, I was hesitant — because of the work, the hours, and the attachment.

This time I said yes, and within a week Lucy changed my life.

I used up a whole bag of pee pads, 3 rolls of paper towels, and threw away three toys that were destroyed by her.
