Whew! Summer school was its usual hectic, tiring stint, so I haven't felt up to fostering lately. Now that summer school is over (yahoo!), we were able to take in a new foster dog. This is Dunbar. (We don't name 'em - we just foster 'em.)

Here he is with Jessica. He's a very affectionate dog who loves attention.Dunbar was a stray. We're fostering him because he's got kennel cough which is very contagious(Our dog, Dixie, has natural immunity because of all the fostering we do.) He's a little thin and has a few bite marks from his time as a stray, but is otherwise healthy. He's a great dog - housebroken, doesn't torment the cat, etc. The shelter says he's a basset mix, but we don't see that (other than his large paws). We think he's more likely a Boxer mix (with Lab and God knows what else thrown in!). The girls are already in love with him. :-) (Nope, no more permanent additions for us, though. At least not right now.)
