Jeff and I decided we wanted to become foster parents to a senior greyhound. We have talked about this before and then on Thursday I saw an add in the paper saying that the Greyhound rescue near our house was desperate for foster homes...so I gave them a call. A lady called me back on Friday and told me that the owner of the rescue was out of town and that she would call me on Monday. Well she called me a couple of hours ago and it went great. We've had Greyhounds before and now we have a Whippet cross, so we definetly know the breed well. Jeff had Greyhounds for many years before I even knew him. They are coming to do a home check on Tuesday. I'm nervous, lol. The rescue pays for everthing, from food to medical, so all we have to do is provide the love :-) We hope our dog Taylee and the new guy will get along well. They want three references though (not family members) and I don't know what to do about that. Jeff and I don't have any friends here, not one. We're nice people but we stick to ourselves. I've only been here 2 years and Jeff has been here for 5, but he's not exactly social. We can ask one guy from Jeff's work, but that's it! I hope that doesn't "disqualify" us. We will be getting a male, because that's all they have right now. Wish us luck!
