Living with Lollie day to day, we forget that not everybody knows the little things about her that are so nice. We have begun documenting the bigger things through our Adoptability series of posts, but little things sometimes go unmentioned in the blogosphere—like the fact that she sheds much less than her foster brother Chick and remains fresh-smelling weeks after a bath, when other dogs would be smelling of ripe fritos.
Recently, somebody asked us where she sleeps. This is another lovely little thing about Lollie. She is perfectly happy to sleep on our bed:
. . . or on the guest bed:
. . . or on her foster brother Chick’s bed:
. . . or just in my lap:
. . . but when it’s time for us to go to work or turn in for the night, all we have to say is “load up!” and Lollie trots happily into her crate to snuggle in.
It was important for us to make sure Lollie was properly crate trained, because a crate trained dog gives the adopter the full range of options for living and sleeping arrangements, easing the transition into a new home for all parties involved. This is another big advantage of adopting a foster dog!
