Happy Monday, I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. My name is Albert and I am the very lucky Foster Dog of the Week. The nice lady at CBHR told me that the Senior dogs are really popular these days and in the last few months almost a dozen of them have found their forever homes. A dozen old dogs saved from shelters and given another chance at happiness. Boy, all you people out there should feel really great about that. I hear that they are all being spoiled rotten and pampered in their new homes. Beds, treats, toys, couches, belly rubs….. A few of them have even had birthday parties. Dog birthday parties! Holy cow, I am pretty sure I would like to have one of those. The secret is out SENIOR DOGS ROCK!

I am super happy to hear that because I am done with my heart worm treatments I am ready to find my forever home. I am about nine years old and I am a very good natured fellow with pretty impeccable behavior if I do say so myself. My foster family gave me all high marks on the behavior sheet. I walk nice on a leash, like people of all all ages, am good in a car and in a crowd. I like other dogs and I really enjoy family time. I have not met any cats yet, so I am not really sure how I feel about them.

I am completely house trained and I do great in the crate, so you don’t even have to worry about any of that stuff. I am fine with stairs and I still have plenty of energy to be loads of fun, but not so much fun that I will drive you nuts. My foster family says I have “A handsome and bearing gait”. I am not quite sure what the heck that means but I think it means I look pretty cool when I walk. I am glad they noticed! I wonder if all these great things are why us seniors have become so popular?

Let’s see, I don’t want to leave anything out. I listen well and I have really sweet breath. Really, I am not making that up, my foster family wrote that in my report. I could stand to put on another 10-15 pounds now that my heart worm treatments are done. It’s not all that often you hear about a basset that needs to put on weight, so get those goodies ready for me. I dine regularly with Mr. Ripley a 10 pound Mini Dachshund without any problems. I enjoy rolling in the grass and don’t tell anyone, but I like to sleep in the bathtub sometimes. I know, it is a little strange, but I like it. If you think all this sounds good to you, fill out the form to take me home. I am really hoping whoever adopts me is going to throw me one of those dog birthday parties that I have heard about.
