Emmett is tired.
So is Lucas.
Emmett and Lucas have grown accustomed to a really specific nap schedule. There’s the after-breakfast nap, the after-lunchtime-walk nap, the pre-dinner nap, the post-dinner nap, and, of course, bedtime!
Cooper’s schedule is a little different.
He likes to play, play, play! And if the boys are asleep? If they’re not paying attention to him? The little doll jumps on their heads, bites on their ears, chews on their tails. And the two big boys lumber out of their beds and humor the little bugger for a while, before giving me THE LOOK that says, “I am done.”
At which point, I tag in and play with him for a while. That is, until he crashes.
For those of you who have fostered before, I’d love to hear your stories! How did your dogs do when the foster arrived and departed? Any tips or tricks to share? What’s the best piece of advice you can give to a new foster parent?
