Margery - our newest foster dog.

Awwww, who could resist this face?!?!? This is Margery. We picked her up from the shelter yesterday. Her time was up. Can you imagine? And the worst part was she was far from the only one whose time was up. But lucky for this little girl we just fell in love. She's about 15 pounds and is three years old. We took her out of her kennel to interact with her, took her into a larger, fenced in area. There was a chicken in there (yes, they have chickens at the shelter) and she didn't even care. She quickly began looking for a place to go to the bathroom so Yay! she seems to be house trained! And then she was all wiggles and kisses and rolling over for belly rubs. Just what we want to see when "interviewing" for a new foster! Right now she is curled up on a nice soft dog bed in front of the fire - I can't help but smile and think how much better life is today than it was yesterday.
