Message from Disco:

 I’m a 5-year old girl living now in a brand new place — a home with a gentle and kind foster mom. During my first five years, I didn’t have people contact like this, but I’m liking it, at least with this nice lady. Men in hats . . . not so much. I do love being around other dogs and learning from them, so I need one in my forever home along with a fenced yard.

 Foster mom notes that I “come flying” when she calls me! Guess I think something exciting must be happening. I learned that quickly! And at mealtime, she asks me if I’m hungry. Well, I sure am, and I let her know it by standing next to my empty food bowl!

 I like sitting quietly by children and running in the yard with them. Foster mom says I’m ready for my forever home, and while I’ll miss her, I think I am ready that too.
