The Boastful Boston became a member of this wonderful group in 2004 and very nearly became George and Gracie's foster Mother a few days later. After being approved as a foster home, I received a call from our foster coordinator. The conversation went something like this:

"We'll put you down for George and Gracie - we'll work out the transport details and call you back." We hung up and I panicked. "What did she just say? I'm getting two TWO.... what am I going to do with two?"

By the time I got over my initial anxiety, George and Gracie had a potential forever family and were being transported elsewhere. Everything worked out just like it was meant to. Four years later, George and Gracie are happy and loved with their family and my first foster, turned adopted baby is currently snoring next to me.

George and Gracie's family have done a wonderful job sending yearly updates.

Gracie has had successful knee surgery so she can continue to run and play.

George had surgery for a dental issue and has recovered well.

Gracie's Mom fashioned a roof over their doggie condo as Gracie is a climber and can scale the wall to exit her condo.

George learned to get along better with dogs other than Gracie and Gracie who gets along with everyone and everything still gets to cuddle and snuggle on a daily basis.

The Boastful Boston is so happy that it all worked out. George, Gracie and Holden agree.
