Our Foster Dogs

My mama likes to foster dogs. She volunteers with New Hope Dog Rescue. At one time all of us (me, Buddy and Nikki) were rescues too, but mama found us and took us home. Now we foster other dogs who are waiting for their furever homes. We show them the ropes. Like I show them where the best places to nap are. Nikki shows them how to be on guard for that pesky mailman and how best to growl and bark so he goes away real fast! Buddy likes to show the new foster dogs how to wrestle and play, and sometimes he'll even show them the fine art of bolting out the front door and going for a fun run!!

This is Winnie, our current foster dog. She is a 7 year old german shepard cross. She is looking for a new home. She was found running loose in the country and was going to be PTS ( not quite sure what that is but we just know it is something bad!!) You can find out more about her at Petfinders

Here she is showing how she can sit for a treat! Winnie loves treats!!

And Winnie just loves to shake a paw. The first thing she did when she met our mama is to sit down and shake a paw! Now how's that for manners?


Before Winnie we had Benny staying with us. Benny is a border collie/ rough collie/? greyhound cross. He had spent most of his life of nine months being tied up in a backyard with noone to play with him :( He was real skinny and when the other dog in the house had puppies the people decided they didn't want Benny anymore :((( A neighbor rescued him and then he came to us. He stayed with us for about 3 weeks in December/06. His pictures don't do him any justice. He found a great home with a couple and 1 other dog who he just loves to play with. No more being tied in a backyard for him!! Benny is now living the good life! He now lives on an acerage AND he goes to agility, obedience and doggie daycare. What a lucky guy!! We are so happy Benny found a great home!!! He deserves it.


This is Max. He was our very first foster dog. He stayed with us for about a month. Max is a Shiba Inu/ Husky cross. he lost his first home because the couple broke up and neither could keep him. Max is very active and loves to always be playing. Max found a home with a family that has 2 kids for him to play with. He frequently goes for walks now and gets to run alongside a bike when the family goes bike riding.

Isn't he just a cutie?

Most of all Max loves to play fetch!!! Doesn't he look happy with his tennis ball?

Gotta go now. Woof woof!

PS Mommy's favorite saying is:

"Saving just one dog won't change the world, but surely the world will change for that one dog"

Our Friend Casper is sick

He is another American Eskimo who lives in the United States, but he has the same name as me. Isn't that cool? He is 5 years old and has Evans syndrome. It is a problem with his blood. We all have our paws crossed and are sending him eskie kisses and hugs to help him get better soon. You can see his dog blog at Casperddog . You can also help raise money for Casper's medical bills by clicking on the google ads on his site. But don't click on too many at a time. Just click on one, then read up on it and then maybe click on another one and read on it too. Then you can do it again another day. And who knows you may also find some neat stuff to get your mom to buy for you. We found our favorite treats, and at a cheaper price!

Talking about neat stuff- boy, that Casper is one cool dude! Besides having a GREAT NAME ;) he also sells his own cool doggie stuff at Casper n Caboodle . So go check it out. I'm thinking of buying some eskie stuff from there myself! I bet that would also help with some of Casper's medical bills. Well hang in there Casper, we are all thinking of you!

Winnie- our foster dog

Winnie is a 7 year old female german shepard/collie cross. She is staying with us for a while until she finds her furever home. We don't have any pictures of her now but we will soon. Mommy you better get on that! She's nice except that she gets really mad at us other dogs if we come near her food or treats, so now Mommy only gives her food and treats in her own crate. Us doggies wonder if she had to fight for food sometimes 'cause she was found running loose in the country and was a bit skinny. Maybe she doesn't know yet that Mommy always feeds us good and gives us lots of treats.

And here's my brother Buddy

He's a 4 year old poodle/terrier. Buddy loves to be outdoors playing in the dirt and mud, so Mommy often calls him Muddy Buddy.

Meet my sister Nikki

She's a mini eskie too, but she's smaller than me (and she says prettier too!). Nikki can be very bossy sometimes, and she's not supposed to be on the clean laundry either! Moommmyyyy look what Nikki's doing!!

Welcome to my bloggie! I'm Casper the doggie!

This is me- Casper. Whoops , I was being bad here destuffing my stuffies. Oh well , don't tell Mommy but I do it on purpose 'cause then Mommy goes out and buys new stuffies ;))
