Daisy has settled in super well with her new family, so Mr. BFS and I have been matched with a foster again. Everyone, meet Dale! He’s 12-18 months old, 50-ish pounds, sweet to everyone, and hasn’t eaten Mr. Pug despite Mr. Pug’s best efforts.
SMART Animal Rescue has many friends. One of them is a fellow rescuer named Leo. Leo and his wife added a/c and heat to their huge barn and currently have 42 rescue animals of their own. Dale was dropped over Leo’s fence about 5 months ago. Dale then jumped that 5 foot fence to chase down the car of his cruddy previous owner. Leo’s neighbor stopped Dale from running into traffic and took him back to Leo since he saw him jump that fence…so he joined the rescue family. I appreciate them letting me take it from here.
Dale’s worst habit so far is random puppy teething like Daisy, but he’s taken to toys much faster. He also is learning not to give hugs. He’s a quick learner, which has been fun. Best parts so far – he’s quiet, hasn’t had any potty issues, and is super soft. 😉
Any new animals in your life lately?
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 a year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $80,000-$100,000 through blogging, a rental home, and professional pet sitting. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you). I even have all of my favorite tools on a resource page - I hope they help you too. This all gives me the time to be with my aging family members, the flexibility to stay close with my friends and family, and it should help if we finally get pregnant too! Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
