???So you are keeping all the dogs?
I don't get it.
Friday you quit the forum, and were rehoming the dogs except Lyca and Seiran on Monday.
Sunday you came back, and Monday--no one's going anywhere. So, did everything magically fix itself on Saturday during fence building? That must have been some fence, and some awesome weekend!
I do understand how pain and craziness in a home can affect everything, and yes, things can change rapidly. Personally I'd think more than twice before you foster another dog. Things are just way too mercurial in your household.
It’s okay, I don’t expect anyone to understand.
It was Thursday that we went to counseling, and I reacted based on the counselors advice. DH and I had a heart to heart on Friday, and realized that neither of us wanted to give up the dogs, and we had made a rash decision in deciding to rehoming them.
No, the fence building was not a cure-all. It was built for safety reasons. Nothing is going to be a cure-all. We get that. But all relationships take a hit now and then, and it’s a hit we worked through together. We have zero intentions of getting another dog. Fostering is not something I will do again for a very long while. I wasn’t counting on DH falling for the first pup foster I did. I have fostered my entire adult life, so I am used to not getting attached. DH hasn’t had time to turn that off. I’ve fostered 6 adult dogs since DH and I bought our home, and he didn’t get involved. Floki is the only one that that immediately warmed up to DH and followed him everywhere he went. It’s a mistake many fosters go through initially.
I’m sorry that our decision offends you. Well actually, I’m not. It’s our life, and we are the ones living it. The dogs have never been in any type of harm, and is training slows down or stops for a few months, it’s not the end of the world. Would you like the counselors information so he can tell you to give up on yourself and what makes you, you. Because that is exactly what happened. I’m always going to have a huge heart and a large crew, it’s just who I am.
, Crios has never reacted to Lyka’s heat cycles. Hopefully he won’t react to Seiran’s either. If he does, even while being neutered, it’s back to crate and rotate, which isn’t that difficult. We will cross that bridge when the time comes.
