It seems that today marks one year since we started Love and a Six-Foot Leash and brought home our very first foster, Lollie Wonderdog. When we opened this blog, we were envisioning just a little personal documentary project to help us chronicle and then remember our experiences fostering homeless dogs — nothing more. We still cherish this element of the blog, but have found ourselves trying to do a lot more — advocating on behalf of homeless pit bull type dogs everywhere, marketing our current fosters for adoption, networking with other foster families and dog lovers around the world, and coaching others on the ins and outs of fostering and integrating new dogs into the household. It has been such a thrill.
As much as we love writing, we are feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of trying to sum up everything we have learned and received from the seven dogs who have shared our home. So instead, we want to celebrate our blog anniversary in the way we best know how: through photographs.
Thanks to each of you who have been a part of this beautiful and life-changing journey with us.
