Last weekend we returned to Raleigh, North Carolina for a long weekend to celebrate my Ph.D. graduation on May 10. I’ll have a post on that later once we get all of the pictures from those that had cameras. However, in addition to the big celebration, we also came home with a long time friend. Forrester was our foster dog for over two years with the Triangle Beagle Rescue of NC. We really enjoyed him as a foster dog, and we had hoped that he would eventually find a forever home after we moved away last December. Unfortunately, nothing worked out so Stacy and I made the decision to adopt him and bring him home with us to Seattle. He’s too good of a dog to be a foster dog bouncing from foster home to foster home in his golden years. Here are some pictures we have of him, mostly from his time with us as a foster dog.

The rescue knew that we had to pay to fly him back to Seattle, and because he had been with the rescue for so long they decided to wave the adoption fee for us, which was much appreciated. He handled the flight back to Seattle like a champ (with some help from some “doggy downers”). Overall, flying with a dog was pretty seamless, despite a delayed connection flight. He and our other beagle, Maisie are very familiar with each other, so they adjusted to living with each other again pretty quickly. He still has great hearing, great eyesight, and healthy joints, despite being a 12 1/2 year old dog. It’s too bad more people don’t consider adopting senior dogs like him. We are happy he’s part of our lives again.

After the short, two-week stay by our last foster dog we were ready for another (our 6th) foster dog from the Triangle Beagle Rescue. Meet Forrester.

Forrester is a 10 year old beagle. He came through the Triangle Beagle Rescue when he was just a puppy. He was adopted and lived with his family for almost all of his 10 years. Unfortunately he wasn’t a very good fit for their small children in the home, so they returned him to the rescue.

Here is the description from the TBR website:

Forrester is a really affectionate and adorable guy – loves to be petted, loves to sit on laps and loves to be near his people at all times. He enjoys going for walks and loves to spend time outside, though not so much in the cold. He loves to sit by the window and watch every person, animal, and car go by. He is just a sweetheart and knows how to win you over. He lived with another larger dog for 8 years and loved it but is sometimes nervous about new dogs. He would probably be happy with another friendly dog or as an only dog. He would be perfect for someone quiet who is looking for a dog to love, snuggle, and pet. He would be best in a home with no kids or with older kids (10 and up). Sponsor: Please Sponsor Me!

That pretty much sums him up. We’ll keep you posted on his life at our house. Senior dogs usually don’t get adopted as fast as the young ones, so we might have him for a while. However, he is really sweet and is a cute old pup so he may get adopted faster than usual.
