First Night with Tyler the Foster

Our new foster dog, two year old Tyler had an okay first night. We learned that he wants to be with people, so he whined and barked from his crate in the kitchen. We put our elder dog, Sprite in the kitchen with him (outside of his crate) and Sprite was so bothered from the barking that he walked back in our room and cowered. Poor Sprite.
   We made the crate as comfy as possible, with toys, treats and blankets, but Tyler wasn't content. So after 40 minutes of barking, whining, etc. we moved him on the other side of the house into the den, next to a night light and he stopped immediately. We all slept through the night.
  Today, I (Rob) am making a vet appt. for a full exam and to get his heartworm treated. It's a challenge keeping a puppy subdued (he has to be with heartworm). Fortunately, he's housetrained! Yay!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
