Do you struggle as a doggie foster parent, and feel like you're the only one who finds it hard? Do you want to foster a dog, but don't know where to start, how to prepare, and what to expect? If so, this is the book for you. It's described by one listener as "an embrace from a friend who understands what we all go through. It is a beacon of hope to let other rescuers know that they are not alone."
The image you see on the cover of this book is not "real" life. It's how Thayne wishes doggie foster parenting could be - she walks her tiny foster doggie down the street, the red leash matching Thayne's designer pumps, her couture dress swaying with each sexy stride. And then once in a while, oops, Princess and she get tangled in the leash. Goodness gracious! But soon they're back in sync again, swishing their way up the block, being envied by all those who wish they were as cute a couple as Thayne and her foster doggie are.
Ah...but who is Thayne kidding. That's not her reality, and it's probably not yours either. Fostering is not for wimps, cowards, or the otherwise mess- or insanity-challenged. It's hard and emotionally draining work, and there are days we all could use an understanding shoulder to cry on. You are not alone! Let Foster Doggie Insanity be there for you.
Crates ripped asunder, fences demolished, couches obliterated, doors splintered...these are the nightmares that routinely go along with doggie fostering. Thayne gives you simple, daily tips for keeping your sanity while fostering. You are not alone in your struggles, and you are not the first to feel you can't press on. We can all press on together.

More like a self-help book then real advice
Fostering is hard. We get it. But this book seems to focus so much on the emotional labor and less on the practicalities of how to manage the dogs. I'm sure that the author is a very good person and some people might need to hear the message in this book, but it wasn't for me.
