We met Foster in the summer of 2002, just after we moved into our first home. We were so excited to finally have a dog together. Foster was adopted from the Bonnie L Hayes Animal Shelter in Hillsboro, Oregon. Little did we know what joy-filled months and years we would enjoy with Foster happily riding in the backseat. We chose him because in a shelter full of dogs losing their minds with barking, he was the only little dude just calmly staring out at us with a relaxed smile on his face. We chose well. There will never be another dog to own us the way that old Cattle Dog did.

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” -Roger Caras
