A Place for Annie

Its been two weeks since Annie came to live with us.  Unfortunately, as you know, we got off to a bumpy start with her because of Lucas.  Thankfully his school-boy crush has all but vanished for the fair and lovely Annie.
I've heard from Annie's previous owner several times asking how she was doing.  I didn't mention to 'Steve' the problems that I was having with Lucas.  But instead, I told him I thought she was happy living with us.  I told Steve about how well she fits in and gets along with our dogs.  I keep having to remind myself that Annie has only been with us for two weeks.   
I also mentioned to Steve how much I liked Annie's spark, and that when she wants something, she always lets us know...
And that along with finding a place on our bed at night, 
 I told Steve that Annie has found a place in our hearts too.

She is so lovely, it really is no wonder Lucas couldn't help himself. What a happy life they all have with you. And you, with them:-)

Lucas is like a lot of males I know, they always fall for those beautiful blondes then figure out they'd rather spend time with a more playful red head! (or dog in this case) They'll all work out their places and become a friendly tribe of dogs before you know it, especially with all the love and attention you give them! God Bless all of you!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Ohhhh we know how much you love your furbabies! And we keep our paws crossed that everyone works out.
Annie is so beautiful.
Love her sweet eyes

oh my goodness.
on behalf of steve... thank you for your patience in letting annie and lucas and sheba work it out.
can you imagine what he'd have felt like thinking he'd seen her to a new loving home only to learn she'd been given away again. it would be heartbreaking in his condition i would think.
i love these pictures dear heart.
they are full of love and happiness and living proof of a generous and caring heart. yours and carls (and ALL your babes.)
hugs,
tammy j

Kim, you know it seems to an outsider that they all fit right in!! That is so very special and so are you and Carl for taking them in!!. I can not imagine the work it takes to take care of so many. YAY for you!!!
Thanks for your visit!!

Bassetmomma said...

Steve much feel such relief that Annie is with you! I know I would! She sure is one special girl!

The Witch said...

Kim,
I think Annie is a keeper. When they enter your door they know this is the place they want to stay for the rest of their life.
Lots of love, food, their health is looked after and they have lots of playmates and then there is Todd. He gives them their youth back just watching him.
Take care my friend.

I think it takes a couple of weeks for dogs to get easy around each other.

She's a pretty thing, indeed!

She's such a sweet-looking girl, Kim. I'm happy she's fitting in with the rest of the crew. xoxo

Jim said...

Annie knows a good thing when she sees it! Nice that she is settling in Kim.

KB said...

I'm so happy that Lucas's crush passed because I could tell from the start that Annie had found a place in your heart.

I'm so glad that Steve knows that Annie is happy and loved. That's an amazing gift for you to give him.

My heart is sad for Steve. To know life is ending and not having your dog with you, but he is so brave in wanting Annie to have a home. I am glad it seems to be working.

Awww bless, she looks lovely and settled x

Inger said...

What a face she has -- I'm in love again, just like with Hamlet. It's interesting how I love them all, but once in a while a dog will come along to your home and my heart just overflows. Hamlet was one.... and now Annie.

Ellen said...

What a sweet sweet face! Oh Annie, you are obviously something quite special.

RYKER said...

I guess Steve is not one of your blog readers ; )
Annie is a lucky girl, as are you. Sounds like it is a good fit.

A Quiet Corner said...

I KNEW it would happen!!!!! Good girl, Annie you've got them hooked!...:)JP

joyce janes said...

Just read your post from April about Sam. I am so so sorry about this sad news. And I know from experience that there are no words to comfort you. I honestly don't know how you do it time after time. All we can do is keep loving them and comfort them. Sam is lucky to have you in his life.

Hugs, Joyce

Glad things are settling down - including Sam's tummy. Hope the food drive is a success and that you get a well deserved rest.
