Here she is!!!

Meet Angel, our new foster puppy. First off, I want to appologize for not getting these pictures on sooner, so that you would all understand that I am not crazy, and did not take in another foster human baby.

Miranda is an animal lover, and she is passionate about saving animals. Angel was brought to the animal rescue organization we are working with last saturday. She was almost dead. They did not believe she would live, but they began giving her fluids, and she improved! They were waiting for a few days to watch how she did before placing her in our home. She is so skinny and her ribs are showing, but she seems to be getting stronger. I have been asking Miranda what she would like to do this year to develop her own talents and interests. Ballet? Art classes? Continue with piano lessons? Every time I asked her these questions she would always reply, "I want to help animals". Just last month I started working with a new little boy at work. His mom shared with me that she works for a dog rescue. It's amazing how God just provides! When I asked her more about it, and if my daughter could help, she was so excited! The more she explained, the more I knew this was exactly what we were looking for! She came over to our house, and spent 2 hours training Miranda and getting her ready for her first foster puppy placement...and that brings us to today. Angel will be with us for 3 weeks, and then will move on to her forever home. Miranda will then be able to help another puppy, and she is loving it so far!

So adorable! What a wonderful thing to do! I would have an impossible time giving them up to another family. :-) Have a great weekend!

:) This is my first time visiting and this post brought tears to my eyes...we once had an Angel dog...and she looked very much like that. She passed due to cancer. She was the best dog ever! Thank you and sweet Miranda for helping find homes for the precious furry kids!! :)
