This has been a week for walks. Foster mom says I’m great on the leash. Today the teenager volunteered to walk Meghan and I together.
I think it was so he wouldn’t have to pick up our “stuff” on the walk. They always check the temperature outside, so we won’t burn our paws on the pavement. We got our 30-minute walk in this morning before it got too hot.
I’ve gotten to meet a lot of people when we’re been out. Foster mom had me wear a red “adopt me” vest. She said something about it may help me find my forever home.
My foster mom takes a lot of pictures of me. The teenager told me that’s normal. His family calls her the paparazzi. I don’t mind it.
My foster family says I’m a quick learner and smart. I have a routine already. I’ve learned not to jump up for treats too. I know I’ll get it faster, if I sit. I don’t bark much, but if Meghan barks, I will because I think I’m missing something.
Well, I’m going to take a nap now.
I’ll write again soon.
Love and kisses, Peach 🍑

Everything has been peachy with my foster family. I love being around them and getting attention. By my second night I couldn’t resist being with them, so I jumped the baby gate three times. Well, three must be my lucky number because they let me go upstairs with the teenager after that. I quietly slept in his room through the night.
My foster mom and the teenager had school the next day and foster dad was away on a business trip. Since I could jump the baby gate, I got to have the run of the first floor with Meghan. They had a big baby gate blocking the steps, so she and I hung out. In truth, we slept much of the day. Foster mom said she was checking on us with the cameras. I don’t know where they are, but I was happy to hear she cared about checking on us.
I think I’m really fit for 6 years old. The teenager put the baby gate up in the morning. Silly teenager! I wanted to see my foster mom when she came downstairs, so over I went. Check out the video to see how great I am at jumping.
Some friends of my foster family stopped by and I got to share affection with them too. Sometimes I’ll initially jump up for a hug, but I get corrected and then wait for them to come to me. I’m learning these rules.
Whenever I hear a crinkly bag, I think it’s treats. Foster mom explained that not everything that crinkles is food. When Meghan and I come in, we get these yogurt dog treats. Yum!
I get so excited that sometimes I’ll put my paws on the counter to get a preview of which flavor we’ll be getting, I guess I’m not supposed to do that, because I’m told “off.” I don’t like surprises, but I’m getting used to waiting and sitting for my treat.
Well, I’m off to bed soon. I’ll write again soon.
Love and kisses, Peach 🍑

Hi, I’m Peach. I’m not from Georgia, but people say I’m sweet as a peach. I don’t know what the humans mean by that, but I guess it’s a good thing. I’m a six-year-old chocolate female lab. Don’t let me being six fool you. I’m young at heart.
In early April Justice Rescue saved me as well as eleven of my friends from a farm where we were being neglected. Justice Rescue partnered with Brookline and I met my foster family yesterday. I got lots of attention and we went on a walk where I met the family’s 3-year-old black Lab, Meghan. She’s really nice to me.
I’m getting used to the whole house being cool. I think they call it air conditioning. I thought I liked being outside, but I’m changing my mind especially how hot it is outside. My foster parents are impressed that I do steps, walk through doorways, and do my “stuff” outside. I guess some other farm dogs don’t always know how to do that. Their teenager gives me a lot of attention although sometimes he looks at this small rectangular box that makes noise.
I was introduced to what they call a dog bed, but I still prefer to sleep on the rug or hardwood floor.
Foster dad stayed downstairs with me until I was settled in for the night. They had a crate for me to go in if I wanted, but I slept on the rug in their family room. I again impressed them, no accidents and slept through the night. We’ll see what today brings with my foster family. I will fill you in on my adventures again soon. Stay cool!
Love and kisses, Peach
