I went into OFOSA's clinic (Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals) this morning for day one as a volunteer. Learn the ropes, undoubtedly clean up some dog poo, you know, good times. I came home with this bundle of joy. Her name is Licorice and she's a 2 month old Australian Shepherd. Our first foster pup.
So...if you know anyone who's thinking about a puppy for Christmas...all the deets are on her petfinder page.
It took no time at all for her personality to start showing through. She romped around the living room with Sadie, sneaking her quick kisses while they were playing. Tackled the stairs once the big girls showed her how to do it and got a hold of some socks and one of TJ's shoes. Right, I had forgotten puppies did that!
Back at the clinic, she had been the shyer of the bunch but I'm pretty sure she's going to be running circles around my girls for the next few days.
