Foster Puppies

My husband has been unemployed since October 11th.  We are very giving people and its a new experience for us to be on the receiving end.  We have been overwhelmed with the kindness of others through out this time in our lives.
Two Sundays ago, in our church bulletin there was a challenge to do something clearly unselfish.  I was trying to think of something we could do as a family.  When I got home that day and got on facebook there was a request from Dakota rescue.  A mommy dog had quit nursing her babies (she had 10) and they needed help!  We offered to take two.

I packed the kids up and we went to get them.  The kids understood it would just be for two weeks, that we were caring for them because their mother could not.  The larger one we called Buster, the smaller one we called Scratchy.

They were so adorable.  We feed them, and loved them and played with them.  The boys helped as much as they could.  They helped with bottle feeding and changing the newspapers & when they got baths they helped dry them.
Opie was checking in on them.
Our baby was not too sure about the puppies.  He would clap at them, but kind of wanted them to stay at arms length away.  (this is buster & the baby)

Two cuties!
Then it was time to say good bye.  They played with the puppies all day.  Then we went up to pet-co to have them put up for adoption.  Noah cried first, then when the other puppies came, Eli cried.

But we were so happy to hear that Buster was adopted and it will just be a matter of time before scratchy is adopted too.  The boys were so happy to hear that!

Buster with his new owner!!!  I'm sure he will love him as much as we did
