Sylvia McNicoll is a Canadian author from Burlington who has written a series of 3 teen books about service dogs in training from Lions Foundation Dog Guides here in Ontario. They are called Bringing up Beauty, A Different Kind of Beauty and Beauty Returns.
Having just finished reading the second book I'm going through puppy withdrawal. Serious puppy withdrawal. I'm not sorry we kept Lexus, but I know I'll foster again. I miss it! Having a new dog on a regular basis has been a huge part of my life for a long time, and it's something I really enjoy doing.
Fostering may be a selfless act for many people but it wasn't for me I have to admit. For me it was about getting my hands on new dogs that I didn't have to keep. It was an opportunity to learn. Oh, and being able to take cute puppies into public places was a nice bonus!
