Why I Keep Foster Dogs (part 2)

2. Exercise- I’ve started saying lately that Goldens are my gym membership. I’ve got a self control problem and I know it. Having a membership to the Y, which is so close to my office that I can walk there easily, meant nothing. Not even expending money on the thing made me want to use it for what it’s worth.

But a golden retriever ALWAYS has to be walked. They’re always full of energy, rain or shine.

Perhaps especially in the rain!

Roscoe is my newest foster. He’s the one to date that I’ve thought the most seriously about keeping.

But I really do think he’d be happier with a big yard and another dog to play with.

But boy will I miss him when he leaves. He’s a total sweetheart, even down to cuddles in the evenings after our walk and supper.
