When I first came to my foster home, I had been at the local shelter for more than a month. I was not used to being close to other dogs. The other fosters that were here at the time were not interested in me & stayed off to themselves. After a few weeks a new foster came named Piper. She was a cutie who was always on the move. She kept running up to me & nudging me & I was scared. I thought she was going to eat me or something. After a few weeks, I realized that she was trying to PLAY with me! Once I realized how it worked, I had a great time. We would play so much that we would be exhausted. A few times we were so tired that we would lay down & try to wrestle without moving too much. Boy it was fun! I wish I had realized what playing was like sooner. Piper got accepted into a place in New York and she left after about a month and a half. Now there is just me & the two old ladies ( I say old ladies with much love).
