    Update on Annie- I get updates from her foster home each day. I will be picking her up in 2 weeks, as I will be out of town, until then. Annie is loving life. She plays with other bullies, hides their toys in her crate, has become potty train, with very few accidents, plays with toys, and is learning to walk on a leash. Walking on the leash does not scare her, it is cars, and the unknows of different area, etc. I have been thru training with my other little girl, so offered some training techniques. She is very mechivious, nothing is holding this girl back. Just a few weeks ago, she would not come out of her crate, foster mom said she had never seen such a broken spirit. She is smart and beautiful, and everyday she is growing and living. What spirit.
    Can not wait to get my Anna home.

    Pamela, I'm so happy for you, and for Annie! I just read her story and it made me quite teary-eyed. Thank you for opening your life, heart, and home to Annie.

    It just breaks my heart, and makes me so angry at the person that did this to these sweet babies. Thank goodness that a kind soul, talked the person into letting them have Annie, as she could not have anymore babies, so he was going to shoot her.
    I am surprised at how she is bounding back so quickly. She has a new sister waiting at home for her, and I think that will help her as well. When she is ready, I am going to take her doggie daycare with my other little girl a couple times a week, I think that will be helpful, and also training. But when she is ready. I just want her to feel safe, play and be happy.
    The things I would like to do to this person, if I could.
    Annie is 4 and my Emma at home is almost 3. But both are playful, smart and mischivious, so they should keep their new mom and Dad on their toes.

    Oh pamela! I thought you were still in the process of adopting her! Seeing that you've been given the ok makes my heart melt. You are so wonderful.

    Can't wait till we hear that she's finally in your home causing as much trouble as she possibly can with her new sister!

    Annie had her first bathe today. Foster mom said she was not nervous or scared, actually seemed to enjoy the touching and rubbing. Getting better and better on leash. I have to go out of town this weekend, but I am going by to meet her for the first time before I go out of town. I miss her each day, hate having to wait 2 more weeks to get her home, but I know that she is growing stronger and getting more secure each day.

    update on Annie: I met her for the first time Friday. The most I was hoping for was for her to take the treat from my hand, and allow me to pet her just a little. What a wonderful surprise I got. She walked in, looked at me, studying me, and came right over and nuzzled up to me. She wanted the petting and turned around for me to scratch the butt, which I did gladly. She loved her toy I gave her, and of course, the treats went a long way. She held that sweet little face up and allowed me to give her nose kisses. She was playful and loving. Thanks to her foster mom, she has come a long way.
    Still working on her sleeping on a bed instead of the crate, but she is quite a character. Can not wait to get her home. Also, she is now allowing men to pet her and is even a little playfull with men.
