We have had Annie only about a week. Already she knows the routine. Eat by 9:00. Go for a walk by the pond late morning and pull and strain like crazy and sniff, sniff, sniff. Take a nap. Bark when you need or want to go outside. Start agitating to go to the dog park about 4:00 or so. Be the copilot and look around, maybe stick your head out the window while in the minivan. Back by 6:00 and it's time to eat. It's a dogs life. The thing about fostering dogs is you can get attached to them.
