Goodbye Bashu

Family picture with Bashu
I’ve been feeling a bit broken-hearted these couple of days since Bashu left. I know, I know, don’t let yourself get too attached. It turned out easier said than done. And Bashu had been with us for only two weeks!

Last Friday my husband and I took her to ARK office to meet her adopter. Coincidentally that day was also Bashu’s birthday, so I think it was a good day for her to start a new life. It was really nice to see her adopter and I quite easily imagined what a happy life Bashu has ahead of her. It makes me happy too.

We will have a vacation this week, and after that a new foster dog will come along. Will I let myself get too atached again? I probably will because I believe that loving them deeply even in that such a short time is much better for both of us. Why would I foster if I can’t love them, right?

Here’s a video of Bashu waiting for her dinner. She’s so precious ♥

  • She is cute! Hope she´ll be as happy as she´s been by your side. I love animals. And dogs, oh dogs, they are so lovely when they smile… 🙂

    Awww, I love that happy dog dance over food time. Classic! It is a blessing to love deeply, even for a short time, and obvious how much life it gave to her!

  • You have such a kind heart!!!!

  • Oh my gosh, that video! She is SO CUTE!!! I hope that she’s very happy in her new home, and that your home isn’t *too* quiet. Sending love your way!

    I am always struck by your before and after pictures of the lucky doggies. Inevitably, they look anxious. Then by the time you have to let them go, they have evolved into happy, sociable animals! (With a nice wardrobe, to boot). Seriously, if the foster agency needs more foster parents, they ought to use your photos for promotion! (Probably it would increase adoptions too).

  • I love Bashu and I have never even met her! You are so wonderful (all of you) to give these dogs so much of your time, energy and LOVE. Lucky little dogs to have found you all! They have such a wonderful start to their exciting new lives because of you.

    Boy it must have been hard to say goodbye. Bashu looks exceptionally cute! And that video gave me a really huge smile, inside and out.

  • It’s really generous to be a foster mom for these dogs and it’s really sweet to get so attached to them, it must be hard to let them go.

  • Oh that is the cutest video! I don’t know how you could give Bashu up! What a great dog!

    I love that you’re sticking with this and continuing to share your home with these dogs as they move towards their real homes. <3
