Friday night, I submitted an inquiry to a dog rescue about a dog I saw posted on FB (I "like" the rescue on FB because my friend is a coordinator). We have two dogs and really aren't in the market for another one, but he's a Foxhound and I have a soft spot in my heart for them because we used to have one when I was growing up. Saturday morning, the lady I emailed told me he has a foster family that's going to let her know later this week if they're going to adopt him. A few hours later, she emailed asked me to call her and I did. She proceeded to tell me that the transport broke down and was out of commission for half a day and that the foster family could no longer meet the transport in Virginia, and then asked me if we could foster him because he was going to be in Connecticut the next morning. So, about 15 hours later, he came home with us. It was crazy!
