That's so sad. I can't believe that the exact time you were leaving to go to the shelter you got the call. The other people must have had the same gift idea as you. Too bad they couldn't have procrastinated another week. You were so smart to not let your girls know your plans. That's always the hard thing about fostering. It's so easy to get attached to the cuties but it really is a great way to see if a pet fits in before you are committed. Hope another special dog comes your way soon. It's a wonderful thing you are doing by fostering.
