We adopted Sunny a few days after our yellow lab, Penny, died. 10 days after that Sunny also died from an unknown illness. We were heart broken to say the least. The wonderful foster mom of Sunny asked if we would like to foster a dog. We agreed because I was unsure if I wanted to adopt so soon after we lost 2 dogs in under 2 weeks. We met the transport who had several dogs she was delivering to fosters. Our Foster,who we named KoKo, was a chocolate lab X. She was very scared and shook for days. Slowly she became a little more relaxed. We decided that we didn’t want to let her go. We wanted to keep working with her until she trusted us. We became Foster failures last winter!
