A Holiday Visitor

For the past two years, my husband and I have taken in a temporary foster over the Christmas holidays. It's a nice way to help out Stray Rescue and their dedicated fosters that may have other plans over the holidays. This year, we had a super sweetie named Bing. He'd been picked up by animal control a couple weeks earlier, found with tooth in his eye and injuries from being hit by a car. Stray Rescue had taken him to the vet, where he was being treated for his injuries. I had no idea what to think when I picked him up there on Christmas Eve, but he was such a good boy! Bing loves all people and dogs. He's curious, loving, and playful. In just the week and a half he was here, I had already became attached. This morning, his long term foster came by the house and picked him up. He greeted her in his usual delighted puppy way, but was a little apprehensive about getting in her car. Oh, the guilt! I have to say I miss him already. If our three dogs didn't already put us at the city's limit, we'd have just added a new member to the family. I love the Bing and hope he soon finds himself in the loving permanent home he deserves.

PS - Bing is petrified of the camera so getting a shot was a challenge.
