Why did you get into fostering?
I got into fostering in alberta when some friends in ontario recommended me

Which hart dogs have you fostered?
I dont remember all the dogs or rather puppies that were fostered. Some stand out: Balloo went to Calgary,  Enzo, Pepita,  Smore.

What has been the most rewarding aspect to fostering?
I am rewarded by being able to send a healthy, well adjusted , mostly house trained pup to a new family.

When individuals think it will be too much work or too emotionally taxing, what feedback do you have for them?
Having to house train a puppy is a lot of work but it gets easier as they get the idea. I dont get emotional about getting  them a new family. I did horses for years.

If your foster dog(s) could speak, what do you think they would say to you?
Balloo would say this is a great life. I am a babe magnet.
Enzo would be happy he has a couple of kids to play with. 
Smore wanted to stay with me. I would think he would be disappointed he wasn't allowed..
The others would say they are happy, glad they learned not to be afraid of new things at our house.
