What a wonderful thread (even though I'm sitting here all blotchy and puffy after many tears lol). Thank you so much for what you did for Karl, and what you do for your other fosters, and for sharing his story with the rest of us.

Merry Christmas!

What a cutie! The vet suggested with timid fosters or even ferrel fosters to take and sleep with an old blanket- and an old shirt on for 3 nights than put it by his kennel so he starts to associate your smell with his safe place. I found it helped quite a bit- you slowly move these items closer to the safe place and eventually inside.

What a wonderful, wonderful update! Somehow I missed it until today. So happy to hear Karl is doing so well. You really did a great job setting that boy up for success.

I just wanted to post another update on Karl with his new family. It has been almost 2 months and he is doing well. I got this message the other day:

"Hey Kim- We took Karl to the vet today for just a check up. The vet said you took amazing care of him and that we got lucky with a very good, well trained adopted dog. Great job. We are so lucky to have him!"

A pic of Karl and his new mom


And this one with the message:
"I wasn't surprised to see him wiggle his way in between them but I was sad that he ran over ME to get to them!!!"


My heart is happy.

Thanks again! It was really hard saying goodbye to Karl, but every picture and update I get makes me SOOOO HAPPY!! Instead of having to be crated a lot and rotated with my other dogs, splitting only my attention (which he still loved and adored), now he has 4 humans to love only him and spend only a few days a week alone.

I told him before I dropped him off..."Karl, I know you probably don't believe this is possible, but there is an even better life out there for you." Now he is living it.

No problem, and thank you!

When I started the thread it really was for support in terms of suggestions for his rehab (or if it would even be possible). But by the end it turned into emotional support for me! ha ha

I guess that is why people blog and stuff though. It really was nice to be able to kind of chronicle the journey I went through with him while being able to dialogue with lots of people who get it along the way.

Sooooo relaxed! That is what I love so much about it. Funny how just a pic of a dog laying down could make a person so ridiculously happy.

My new foster pups have made me think about Karl a lot, and reminded me that I haven't shared any updated pics in a while! Every time I see a pic of his adorable face it melts my heart. Thought I would share a few with you all today!

Out for a walk...if anyone deserves two rainbows, it's Karl!


Every family member should pull their load!


Man, I love that dog.
