    DefaultI think the boys would tolerate a new sister however...

    As you can see from this photo she might be relegated to a secondary class status. Last weekend Brie, their New Orleans cousin stopped by for a visit. The boys were very nice host however when I took the trio out on the deck for a photo you can see that the boys hogged the scene and poor Brie had to sit in the back despite the offer of a treat. What a couple of hams.



    Upadate on the lost girl.
    No one has claimed her yet. Since we live far off any main highway and only one road leading in to our area I have posted Found Dog flyers however no one has posted any lost dog flyers. Not a good sign that she is lost. Next week we will decide whether or not to bring her back as a foster but Liz knows that I am a big a foster failure. You may recall that I fostered Freckles and still "fostering" eight years later.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Aw, Brie. Such a lovely girl. I think she just has very nice manners to not get all "up front and personal and it's all about ME" when she's visiting.
    Good luck with the fostering (if it comes to that). Failure can be FINE! I ought to know.

    Hmmm ! I think that's Foster success but what do I know ! Nance is right ! Bries just has good manners and is probably nearer to the kitchen !

    What a cutie!! I have to say though, when I adopted Teddy he, too, would sit near the back and take a very submissive role. However as he became accustomed to life here, he became more confident. Now he is the one that pushes his way to the front.
    “If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

    THat is a great picture. Brie is just giving the boys space. Nothing wrong with "foster failure." It is sad about the lost girl. It doesn't sound as if she is truly lost. Good thing you are looking after her.
