oh the SCREAMING. Faren was behind a closed door, securely locked in a crate. Seger SCREAMED and had to be dragged from the door. "nuisance" is one way to describe it. That started weeks before she even started her heat.

I have about 5 days of whining, pacing, drooling, pacing, off food. It's right around standing heat so I guess my guys are pretty good really.

Honestly, it is so unhealthy for my old guy, I'm probably going to board him or send him to friends next time. I am worried about his health.

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.
@Saco and @Jax08, 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.

Bolded because it doesn't in the least offend me.

It is your life, you are the mother of kids and thrice married. I don't presume to know, or speak for you. You certainly aren't beholden to some anonymous internet stranger.

I just didn't "get" the complete turnaround, from Thursday (my mistake on which day) to today, unless you were looking for a reaction, which you got.

IMHO, your life IS mercurial, at least it appears that way by your posts. Look at all the craziness you've been through in this past 6-8 weeks. Your mother/family troubles, your husband, your surgery, your new foster dog Floki, etc. That's a whole lot of things to be dealing with in the last couple of months.

However, I'm glad to have taught people a new word, as vocabulary is important.
Truly, I wish you and the dogs the best.

I’m well aware of what my life looks like from the outside in. I’ve lived it. I wish I could say I made it all up for attention, but I haven’t. Yes, life gets messy, and my mistake was using this forum as an outlet to vent. I won’t make that mistake again.

Today’s goals:

Vacuum all the tile and get rid of all the GSD tumbleweeds.
Take a long guilt free nap
Take Floki back to the vet for some basic obedience classes I signed up for yesterday so he will get used to being around dogs that aren’t my own.
Paint a picture with my girls. My eldest girl loves art and got a ton of art supplies for her birthday.
Take a long guilt free bath.

And that’s all she wrote for the day.

In cvamoca's defense - you can't really be mad at her for giving an opinion. You've put your life on the internet, a life filled with drama, and you should expect people to scrutinize it (both good and bad).

I'm really surprised you are vacuuming and driving dogs to the vet. I had very strict orders to basically do nothing for the first two weeks and I only had c6/c7 fused. I was not even allowed to walk my dogs and I was not allowed to drive until my recheck at 2 weeks.
