My current foster dog, Teddy, finally decided it was ok to jump on the bed this week.
Now when the end of the day rolls around, I turn off all of the lights and Teddy races up the stairs to the bedroom behind Milo. When I catch up with them, this is what I find.
He still prefers to sleep on the floor and hops off the bed within a minute of my turning off the light. But as soon as he realizes my eyes are open, he joins me again. And then patiently waits until I get up.
Teddy is definitely discovering how much better being a family pet is than living out on the cold streets.
If you live in the St. Louis area and want to make a difference in a street dog’s life, join me in fostering with Gateway Pet Guardians.
If you live somewhere else, I’m sure there are many pet rescue groups that need your help.
