I am sitting on the floor by my oven watching my cookie dough blossom. This is a whole new level of fat

MN has a problem with pet overpopulation, I belong to a organization that helps deserving animals find a good home. A lot of the time the humane society or animal control will "bust" a hoarder or puppy mill/backyard breeder which has a lot of dogs that were treated horribly. My org is a non-profit foster based rescue which means we can only take as many dogs as we have foster homes for. I am currently on my 4th foster dog and this group is great. I love all the dogs I have been able to help and my current dog is an Italian Greyhound. He is severly under weight and scared of everything/everyone. But now that he has gotten to know me he is awesome! When I get my next dog maybe everyone can help me pick a name! Unfortently I didnt get to name this one :( Here is Steve:

Go to this site:
You can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services. This is amazing and whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers are over there and need to know we are supporting THEM!


  1. I don't know how you foster dogs, because I would want to keep them all. And it would be a problem, and I would become a hoarder, and it would be a vicious cycle. Your new dog is so damn precious. I wouldn't be able to NOT keep him.

  2. What a sweet puppy, and how amazing that you have changed his life!!

  3. Thank you for commenting on my blog!

    Steve is darling, with those big eyes he looks like a baby deer!

    I work for a nonprofit myself, so puppy mills and backyard breeders and the like are the things that keep me awake at night. It's so sad. I'm always so glad to find another person working so hard to protect the animals.

    P.S. My oven doesn't have a window, so I can't watch my food cook! It's kind of a tragedy.
