Recent Updates and Blog Hopping/Home for the Holidays!

Hello Lucky Dogger Bloggers!

I know it’s been awhile since my last update…the big things in life involve a wedding, a home purchase, and a whole lot of busy times at work in September. Now that that’s all over (minus the home purchase, that’s still a work in progress), it’s time to start barking about the lucky life again!

How cute is the family on our wedding day?
In the few events I have been able to attend for Lucky Dog, I am happy to say BJ (of my last post) was adopted, along with many, many more. Yay BJ and all the Lucky Dogs! We also surpassed bringing up our 1,000th dog from our partner shelters, officially saving over 1,000 puppy lives in 2012 so far…and we aren’t done yet!
It seems bringing a new foster pup in will be better timed when our house isn’t in boxes and getting packed up (I can’t wait to be moved and invite in our first furry house guest of the new place!), so to help spread the lucky love in the mean time I’ve taken on a few things:
1. Helping Lucky Dog get its social network groove on at Twitter. Hint: you can help with this too by following @DCLuckyDog
2. Going to Adoption Coordinator Training this Sunday! AC’s are the OTHER awesome volunteers that help get dogs placed into their furever homes, by screening potential adopters and making sure they are fit to “Get Lucky”. Excited to learn about taking this on this weekend!
3. Helping coordinate one adoption event a month starting in October, and helping coordinate the event details for our Holiday Luck Event, which will be an awesome dinner at Lincoln Restaurant on Monday, December 12. Stay tuned for details!
I’m also supporting Iams in their goal to bring 1.5 million dogs home for the holidays, which Lucky Dog will obviously be a part of locally! Iams will be helping to promote dog adoptions with this campaign, but also donating lots of food to participating animal rescue organizations! Here’s what we bloggers are doing to help:

Faith, Trust, & Foster Pups is a combination blog for animal welfare, humane education/positive training, recognizing the beautiful bond that exists between pets and their people, and other fun stuff. I share information about adoptable pets in the DC metro area, promote animal rescue and resources to support adopters and fosters, and share stories and lessons related to the dogs I care for. Much of my writing is for especially my "foster failure" with some specific fear-based issues. In an effort to help understand often wonderful, sometimes challenging dogs like him better, I learn to understand myself. Together, we share our stories, and walk together, leash in hand, and in building faith and trust within one another and within ourselves.
