Sugar - Our Temporary Treasure

Car Magnet
Have you ever considered fostering a dog? 
I have. And this weekend Sugar has joined our family. She is my first foster. Her family has relocated and is in the process of settling in. So she has come to visit Willy, Mittens the spirited kitten, and I while her family gets settled.  We are thrilled to have her here.

Rat Terriers

I truly believe that not every person should be an owner of a Rat Terrier but that every owner of a Rat Terrier knows how amazing these dogs truly are.  Ratties are typically extremely smart, energetic, and an indescribable balance of independent and exceedingly loyal. 

True Statement 

Sugar is a rat terrier. I am super thrilled to have a rattie back in my home. And she is a wonderful dog. She's an adult and a bit shy. But frankly, who wouldn't be shy around my young and energetic Willy and my kitten who seriously think she rules the place?  Those two are enough to wear anyone out - human or animal.

Sugar - my foster dog

Someday, when the day is right, I will bring my own Rat Terrier puppy home. But until then, I am going to enjoy Sugar's sweet kisses and hugs while she's here.


  1. Well, now! Aren't you both precious! Of course Sugar is, but you are too for giving her a safe, temporary home!

    1. Thank you Cynthia. She is not at all sure what to think of the over-active Willy and Mittens the maleficent. But she's settling in.

  2. so sweet of you to foster Sugar!

    1. Thank you Heather. I'm so happy to have her here.
