It can be quite hard, but at least when they go it means they have found a nice home.

We never know how long we will be having them for as we are just a foster home for a labrador rehoming charity, we look after them until a home is found, or until they reach their specified foster home.

My wife is a volunteer for them and I can come home one day and find she's collected a dog at short notice. I can come home another day and find the dog gone as the charity has found it a home. Usually we have a bit of notice though.

Theres a network of volunteers around the country and they help each other out looking after the dogs, and relaying them around the country to a foster home such as ours or to their new home.

He's happy Joyce, believe me.

Well he was happy yesterday when he grabbed my sons teddy from his room and took it on a sprint around the house, and he was definitely happy a few moments ago just before I caught him with his front paws up to the kitchen worktop with his face in my plate of leftover chips.

We are now fostering another unwanted labrador, this one is called Rolo, a 3yr old beauty. We are very tempted to keep this one as we have kind of fallen for him, but he does need a bit of training....

Ive had blue tits nest in a nest box on the north facing side of my shed, and blackbirds nest in a box on a south facing wall. Id like to know more about the best orientation/aspect of different birds nesting preferences.
