Personally, I feel if we have to rename our foster dog, it should be spelled GIZMO, not Gismo.....
I picked up the foster and he is quite beautiful. He is a Golden Retriever, but a small one. Needs to gain some weight, though, too skinny. He was given up by a European who is moving back to Europe in a c ouple of weeks. She had no toys for him and he basically was kept in a room off of her kitchen. Living with us will be a major change for him.
My daughter, Rachel, is totally in love with him. I told her we are not going to be a "failed" fosterer, ie, one who does not give up the foster. We already have two retrievers. I do not think my house can hold anymore hair balls. :)
Gonna be weird the next few days with a new dog and no husband, Paul is on a business trip. I really hope he can maintain his will power and not overeat too much.
Gotta go. We are hoping Gismo (Gizmo) will stay in a crate tonight. He is recovering from neutering surgery today.
