In my lifetime I have been blessed by wonderful Dogs and Cats appearing in my life and enriching it in the most incredible ways. Animals are my passion and I cherish all of them. Some say, "I am a dog person" or "I am a cat person" . I just love them all.
Foster was in foster care at a wonderful fabric store in Bluffton SC called Discount Fabrics. The owner rescues dogs and trains them as service dogs. Foster was very timid because of his terrible life and so he was so very shy . My dog, Tramp, (who was someones ex husband that had come back as a dog) had recently died and I was sad and lost without him. Two great feral kitties (Grey and Red) had shown up at the beach cottage but the" hole in the heart" was ever present for Tramp. I walked into the fabric store and I saw Foster hanging out among the chintz and linen (15years ago chintz was everywhere) . It was love at first site.
He was my constant companion on job sites and and all my construction projects. He would follow me from room to room "inspecting" and looking in every corner like he really KNEW what needed to be completed.
There will never be another Foster. He was loving , sweet, well behaved and very smart.
When he was found , injured and so ill the vet was getting ready to put him to sleep. Foster put his paw on the vets face ( Like he has always did when he lays down and you come close to him). The Vet said, "this is a keeper" He definitely was!!! I need to write that vet a thank you note for sure.!!!!
Foster is featured on my website in a great photo taken by Doug Keister. He and Brian Coleman kept bringing cookies to the house and bribed Foster( and Lucky) for a great photo.
