My name is Gordon and I am your new Foster Dog of the Week. It has sure been an exciting two months since I was rescued by CBHR! You would never know by looking at me right now, but I was in pretty rough shape when I first got to my foster home. But CBHR sent me to the vet and they fixed me all up! I even got a double eyelid lift just like the movie stars do. I think it makes me look much younger and more handsome. That and some tender loving care at my foster home has made me into a new man.
I never lived inside a house before, and I’ve gotta tell ya, it is the most awesome thing ever!!!!!! Holy cow, I can’t believe how lucky I am to be part of a real family! They are taking such good care of me and teaching me all kinds of things every day. I am so excited about everything that, even though I am seven seven or eight years old, I act like a silly puppy. Who could blame me though? I have foster siblings (cats and dogs) and I really love them. I love to snuggle with the dogs and I usually sleep with my head on one of their backs. They make a nice pillow for my big old head. Every evening we cats and dogs all play this really fun game of chase through the house. It is so much fun and my foster mom is just amazed at how well I am figuring all this new stuff out. I have learned to sit and I am even catching on to the whole housebreaking thing. When you spend your whole life outside you never have to worry about stuff like that.
I am really grateful for my second chance and I am doing my best to take advantage of all the new things being offered to me. We have this thing called a pet toy box here. Did you ever hear of one of those? I just couldn’t believe it when they opened it up and it was full of toys for us dogs to play with. I never even dreamed of such wonderfulness. I just love to pull all the toys out and play with them. I love to go outside and I walk well on a leash. My foster mom says I stop to smell the roses a lot. I still just can’t over how great this living in a house thing is. A couch to lie on, people to pet me and feed me and love me. Gosh life is so good. My foster mom told me about something called a forever home, and I would really like to find one of those as soon as I can. I am learning new stuff every day, and if you think I would be a great addition to your family, you can look me up at www.cbhr.com. Well, I gotta go now, seems somebody has put all the toys back in the toy box. 🙂
