Aww, the poor little thing, I really felt for her. I get attached enough to some of them after only a short transport, if I fostered I'd be a disaster! Still, hopefully we'll get loads of updates for :star: Amy :star:

Well she is still missing him poor mite Sad does anyone else feel relly bad and guilty when a foster goes and their child is very upset??people make it worse by saying "how could ye do that to a child its very hard for them"are they right??or does it make them stronger and appreciate what they do have???will it make them cope better with loss or even death when they grow up???she just says the odd time "i miss robbie" but the other day she was sobbing and they were real tears not like crocodile tears that kids seem to use at certain moments....well whats your views ????

Ok, I'll put my professional hat on for a minute (I'm a play therapist which is basically like a counsellor for kids). In my (humble) opinion, a happy well adjusted child is one who has experienced a wide range of emotions and situations, and has the support needed to guide them through these situations. Handling children with excessive kid gloves is not doing them any favours in the future. I'm not saying we should deliberately put our children in situations where they're going to be upset or hurt etc., but for something like fostering, where a child has a fantastic opportunity to develop real life skills and a healthy and caring attitude towards animals, as long as they have the correct support mechanisms in place (e.g. a parent who can comfort them), then I don't believe that the sadness they feel when a foster dog leaves will do them any harm at any stage in the future. On the contrary, I think developing the skills to cope with these situations will actually be beneficial to them in the future.

I don't have kids myself but I always have a lot of visiting kids from the neighbours and for them I am the mad woman who always have different dogs. They loved the three puppies I had in foster but yesterday I had to tell them that they were gone and they were looking at me and saying 'ok, but when will they be back?'. They are too young to understand the fostering-rescue situation so I am always struggling trying to explain to them what I do with all these dogs...and where they are going after they leave my house.
But then yesterday they came back to my house and asked: 'When are you getting more puppies?' 3dogs damn

My kids were the same, especially when they would fall for a certain dog. I explained to them what we were doing and they were helping in saving the dogs. they have got used to it now but like with these puppies i had i try not to let them get to close to them like naming them, saying that this litter of puppies had so many names, they all gave them dif ones.
I do find that my kids are turning into me concering animals if they see dogs on the street by themselves they want to bring them home, trying to explain that no, the dogs shouldnt be out by themselves and that they do have owners, sometimes gets a bit hard. Heard Ashley my 8 yr old giving out to a man one day about not minding his dog Embarassed Though think the man might have listened havent seen dog out alone since.

Thanks Kazza thats made me alot happier and was what I was kinda thinking,she is a softy like myself Ive noticed lately that she is really noticing things like dogs on their own or dogs who arent looked after properly.Yesterday we found a very old little dog who was out alone in the dead heat with no id tags,this was on the way home from school and nearly got run over so I took Tias lead off and put it on him and carried Tia and walked around the estate for a full hour poor kids we must have knocked on about 25 doors in the end a little boy recognized the dog and we got the owner who looked a bit surprised.She said aw he is grand he goes for a wander and comes back,I said he was nearly hit by 2 cars,I actually had to wave a fella down to stop Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad she said he was kept in a box all his life and now likes freedom so I explained about id tags,warden and the dangers of the road.I was so peed off my 3 kids wreaked with the heat and for what nothing.Amy my 6 year old turned around and said "well that was a waste of time wasnt it"I nearly died hehehehehe but she was right.The owner will prob let him out again Evil or Very Mad she said he is 9 but he is very old looking and cant take the heat,some people drive me barney Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Jamie has sobbed his little heart out plenty of times when foster dogs has had to move on (like his mammy...) but I keep telling him it's good tears. I'd be more worried if he never got upset. I know how hard it is to see them that upset but it means that you are rasing lovely caring children. love 3dogs
