    I am ok. I miss him. I keep thinking about getting a new dog, but I want to hold off until I get back from my trip to Germany this summer. I hope I can last that long. I figure God will bring me the right dog at the right time though.

    If there's one nearby and you just want to pet something for a bit, you might consider pet rentals. Until summer, I mean.

    Beats staying in a kennel forever. Actually, some pounds are trying it to improve adoption - gives a trial period to make sure the new owner can actually deal with the dog.

    Didn't they used to call that "fostering"?

    Yeah but renting out dogs? Not only do the renters either not care about the dogs or start to care and have to return them, but the poor dog thinks he is going to a home and then ends up back in the pen. Over and over? No, that's not right at all. And to CHARGE for it?

    I can see a trial period for someone wanting to adopt to make sure it fits them, but not a rental service. It is probably used by guys who want to have a dog to walk to pick up girls mostly.

    That is a volunteer who home cares for the dog until it is adopted. They don't rent the dogs out or keep switching foster homes on the dog.
