Faith, Trust, & Foster Pups

Helping dogs on the road to forever, forever finding ourselves as we walk that road with them.

Thirty Days of Thanks: A Full Car and Full Hearts

On the road again…with coordinating hoodies.


We’re on our way west for this year’s Thanksgiving adventure. Last year was a wee bit tough on Balton, but this year we go into Thanksgiving with better foundations of knowledge, skills, trust and confidence, so I’m feeling cautiously optimistic that Thanksgiving year 2 will be handled better by all of us.

Keep your fingers, toes, and paws crossed for a successful family road trip. For now, I’m thankful both dogs are resting quietly in the back of the car instead of panting/whining/barking, and taking it as a positive indicator of a good holiday weekend to come.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your loved ones!

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.
