Now that the dogs have settled in, “They’re much better behaved than I expected. It was a nice match.”
Taking care of these temporary pets “really does fill a void .... We do like having a dog around.” While her husband, an ear, nose and throat physician who practices in Batesville and Martinsville, initially was hesitant about fostering canines, now “he’s up early with them and feeding them. He pretends like he’s complaining about it, but he’s really enjoying them. I’ll find them sitting on his lap while he’s reading.”
According to her, “The responsibility is awesome. Her first dog died (of cancer) while she was deployed a few years ago and it was devastating to her. I recognize I’ve got to have them delivered back to her in one piece.”
