News: The Hottest New Home Decor Accessory: A Foster Dog

For all the none-dog-lovers out there, maybe you should just leave now. It’s true – there is a new hound in the house! So last week you may have noticed that I have been a little distant from the blogging scene recently (or did you?)… I knew I would be busy last week because Trooper arrived at my house on Sunday… Trooper is a Bluetick Coonhound who needed a home while his rescue organization found him an adoptive home. I thought I would share my experience with my new foster dog, Trooper.

My family is big on rescuing dogs, everyone has a dog from a shelter in their home right now! So although I am no expert at rescue dogs, I do have some experience with them. I can say confidently that Trooper is one of the best rescue dogs that has ever walked into my home.

He is a total gem.

I wanted to foster a Coonhound to see what they were like. It’s a win-win situation for me. I love hounds. They are so lovable and Trooper is no exception.

Me with my new pony friend. He has been a total pleasure to have here – and I am finally getting use to his size. I feel like I am walking a celebrity around my neighbourhood…We get stopped on a daily basis. He is a real beaut.


With his “cousin” (who he somehow dwarfs!)

I love him…. and know I am going to bawl when he gets adopted (there is a family who already wants him!)

Speaking about coonhounds – I love this blog: Maddie On Things

    Yay!!! My very first foster was a hound (fox hound mix) and I’ve loved them to death ever since. I haven’t fostered in almost a year and a half now, but I hope to do it again one day.

    Trooper is just lovely. Enjoy!
