I know, we said no more fostering! We got the call from our coordinator that they needed someone to do an intake in Sugar Land. The surrendering family lives only a few miles away, so we volunteered to go get her. The plan was to keep her until a foster home could be arranged. But after only being with Hannah for a few hours, we saw how well she behaved and fit in with our pack. We made it official that we are the foster family for her.

Now about Hannah! She is 5 years old and came from a good, loving home. She is so smart and well mannered. She settled in very quickly and we are having a lot of fun getting to know her. My three dogs welcomed her into the pack right away. It has been an extremely easy intake. Exceptional, I would say.

A very funny thing Hannah does is she watches TV. When a dog comes on, she runs towards the TV and puts her paws on the screen and barks. Her mom told me to expect that, so when Hannah did it, I was not too surprised. We have never had a dog that paid any attention to the TV before. So cute!

I think your very correct in that prediction Wendy!

Jazzie watches animals and barks at lions. Georgie would go up to the screen and put his paws on the set to bark at lions also. Molly could care less ..she is the one who would say show me the MEAT(lion) THEN WE WILL GET EXCITED.
