From the Foster Animal:
Hi, I'm Cypher. Let me tell you a little about my self, an start from the beginning. I was going on a nice walk with my owner around town. And well you know, dogs will be dogs and I got away and ran off. I dragged the leash with me the whole way to freedom. And then I was picked up by impound. Friendly guys they were. I was sitting in a kennel for what felt like forever. I didn't get as much time outside as I used to, and well my neighboring kennels were rather empty and quiet. So I got really bored. This lady would come and let me play with her dog every day for 5 days out of the week. It was great! But I was beginning to wonder how long I was going to be living in a kennel. Next thing I knew I was going for a car ride, with that same lady. I got to meet her whole family! I was kinda nervous about the whole thing though. I wasn't really sure how to interact with her dogs. Everything was so different being in her home compared to just having play time. Every move I made they were right there watching me, sniffing me, trying to figure me out. I missed being the only dog that got attention. Honestly I was rather depressed at this point. I was having trouble getting along with her dogs, they were so much bigger then me. After a while, I lost my appetite. I refused to eat for days. I just felt so uncomfortable around these other dogs all the time. I didn't want to take my eyes off of them for even a second. Not even to eat. I started getting tired. Every now and then my foster mom would snuggle with me, and I could get some good sleep. But I had nightmares, They would scare me awake. Eventually I decided that I didn't want to live this way, so why live at all?... My foster mom kept watching me, talking to me, giving me comfort. But it just wasn't good enough.. Then she did something I didn't expect. She brought another dog home! why would she bring ANOTHER dog home?.. I figured I better introduce my self regardless. As I was doing so, I realized something very different about this dog. SHE WAS A GIRL! I wasn't sure how to show my excitement, but boy oh boy I sure was happy she brought me a girl friend. She was shown me how to play, and be happy. She's shown me that I don't have to be afraid all the time. They call her Kyra, and she has helped me understand how to be a dog. Now all I need is a family, and I'm more then ready. Bike rides? Lets do it! trips to the park? I'm ready when you are! Cuddle and watch T.V.? I'm game! What ever you want to do, I want to be there with you.
