    Achterberg never thought she'd have three dogs in her home at once, much less 14. Yet that is the predicament she found herself in only one year after she began her journey into dog fostering. Achterberg's love for animals runs deep, but she didn't intend to become such a die-hard about it. Her original intention was to find a second family dog, one that would get along with her family's current dog. But after saving that first dog and finding her a forever family, Achterberg's self-proclaimed addiction to fostering began. She chronicles her initiation into the world of dog fostering, detailing the perks, pitfalls, and endless puppy poop that fostering entails. Witty and full of love, her memoir beautifully captures the personalities of the dogs she's helped save and recounts the concurrent struggles in her family life, particularly watching her teenagers fly the nest. This easy read is a must for animal lovers and those interested in volunteering with animals and a good choice for reluctant readers. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
