Foster Pups #48 and #49

This past week we had some sweet babies to snuggle.  Notice how I said babies and not tiny! These were some big boys for their age (we are guessing around 6 weeks when we got them) and they just continued to grow bigger by the day. We aren't sure what they are but we think some sort of a large collie mix. So also very high energy. Unfortunately they had some sort of a tummy bug all week which made things more difficult but they were pretty darn adorable and snuggly regardless!

Nothing better than a lap full of snuggly pups at the end of the day! There was some fierce competition for these guys and apparently some anger and outrage at the rescue we work with as far more people wanted puppies than they had available.  The rescue also broke records this weekend with amount of adoptions, breaking over 1,000 for the year already which is awesome! We love this organization and the work they are doing to save dogs and puppies on the euthanasia lists from California.  I am very curious who our lucky #50 puppy will be, but we will have to wait and see for a couple more weeks as we are taking a short little break from fostering to dog watch.

Pumpkin Patch Fun!

I cannot believe how fast fall has arrived, but I guess that is to be expected with how fast the clock keeps turning. We are trying to gulp up as much of the season as we can, including a day at the pumpkin patch. The weather, especially on the weekends has continued to be pretty mild which has been awesome and given us lots of chances to enjoy our time together as a family! 

This was the first time we've visited this local pumpkin patch and the kids had a great time with the slides, pumpkin chunkin, animals, maze, hay ride, train, and food!

Foster Pups #46 and #47 Lilo and Stitch (turned Caesar)!

I knew we were in trouble when I got an email asking if it was okay to switch our terrier mix fosters to poodle fosters. You see, we have a little girl who really loves poodles! 

It wasn't long before we really knew we were in trouble as the whole family was falling in love!

We also had his adorable brother who was as equally sweet!

Our girl was smitten! 

And our not so fond of dogs child even loved him!

As the week wore on, our girl was getting sadder and sadder as we prepared her that it was almost time for him to leave.

Fortunately Grandpa and Grandma saved the day and decided to keep him! Bonus, we get to babysit the sweet little guy! Welcome Caesar to the family! He is the sweetest little pup with the best temperament as the pictures below show! We are thrilled that he gets to stick around and of course his brother being as adorable and well mannered as he is too was quickly scooped up! Everyone wins!
