We are in the process of formally adopting Marshmallow Man, our current foster dog. Last weekend there was a family interested in meeting him, and James realized that he was not ready to lose Marsh. It is no surprise that I had been in love with this little beast since I laid eyes on him. We are super excited about him being a permanent member of our family. The downside is that he is beast number 5 and we had to give up fostering in order to keep him.
Ironically enough, Marsh never got on furniture until the day after we decided to keep him. Now he gets on the couch and recliners exclusively. It was like he understood that he was now a permanent member so he just took that final step.
