As many of you know, I am a foster failure; but I am also a foster success- twice. Many people ask me, “Don’t you get attached?” along with, “How do you give them up?” The answers are ‘Yes’ and ‘It’s hard’.
I foster because I love dogs. (How I got involved fostering is a subject for a whole separate post.) Quite often, the fosters that come through my doors are in pretty sad shape, so of course my heart gets involved. And even though Rational Brain has told Heart, ‘stay out of this… do not get involved.’ Heart does not listen. Ever.
