Dear Foster Dog(goD)

Bless me, for I have sinned.

I cursed Foster Dog (made in your image) as I clipped him to his leash and led him to the cold back yard.

I cursed him as I wiped the fecal matter from my freshly painted wall and my favorite rug. I cursed him as I hosed down the crate his Guardian Angel (Aunt Liz) gave me when I took in one more dog than I ever imagined I could handle.
