Default Missing my boy

Jonesy has been with his forever family for a couple of weeks now. I think about him everyday. I miss him so much. He's living the good life with farm animals, horses, etc... And he starts obedience school soon.

This is the look I could never resist. He'd climb up next to me when I'm sitting on the sofa and just lean on me and give me side glances once in a while.


He was a rapper this past Halloween.


And Leila was his lady.


They were good together.


Sometimes too much....


I miss you, Jonesy...

Aww
It must be so hard to foster and then let them go.
Have you heard from his new family?

Must be hard! But so important and he was lucky to obviously be loved and so well looked after! He is such a beautiful boy!

:-( I used to foster, it's hard letting him go. Is he close by? Maybe once he settles you can have playdates? How long did you have him? I can't believe how well your dogs got along!!! Do all boxers cuddle?? I see so many cuddly pics. I just love them!

Jonesy's mom and I have communicated a couple of times. She enrolled him in obedience class. She even sent pictures of him in his new home. This boy is living the high life - heck, my entire home can fit in the backyard!

Awww...so cute!!! I would love to foster one day & I feel the hardest part is saying goodbye. I hope you continue to hear from his new family.

He now lives about 7 hours drive away. He was my first full-time foster. And he was with me for 6 weeks. These two were constantly sleeping together, on top of each other. They got along beautifully from the get go. I have to applaud Leila for her grace and patience with Jonesy - I called him the naughty son I never had. Whenever we loved on Leila, Jonesy will force himself between us and demand the attention. Leila would let out a sigh and just walk away. Leila would be sleeping on her favorite spot on the couch and Jonesy would squeeze her out of that spot. Again, Leila would let out a sigh and just move to the other end of the sofa. Their energy level was a perfect match. As much as it was so heartbreaking to say goodbye to him, I'm lined up for another foster soon.

Awwww that's got to be tough! At least you know he's in a good home and you can help the next baby that needs you!

Awe! I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to him. Drako will be coming to me this evening and I hear great things about him. I too wonder how difficult it will be for me to let him go when Cait is ready for him but I'm already seeing other seniors right here in my own backyard that are needing fostering so if I don't let Drako go when it's time, I can't help another. I'll just have to keep that in mind as I learn to love Drako. Keep up the good work girl, you are making a difference!
