I just wanted to say again, THANK YOU to all of you for your kind thoughts and prayers. I visited w/her yesterday (after our rescue group's halloween party) and she looks and sounds amazing! She's a quick little healer.
I also officially declared my intentions to be a foster failure, lol. So, in a week or so, after her vet recheck - she will be coming home to stay :) I did pretty good - made it to the 4th foster before falling completely in love.
The good news is that she gets along very well within the head of the rescue group's pack, so I will be able to continue fostering without issue. That was the final thing that I needed to know.
So, in a week or so Vern will officially have a sister - no more lonely doggie beds for him!
