Arrival Story: I've had dogs all my life and in summer 2011 I'd lost a 15-year-old purebred Beagle to kidney failure. Was waiting for the right moment to adopt another dog, so much was going on in my life that I didn't get a chance until this Spring (2012). I adopted Abby as a rescue when she was about 5 months old. She was part of a litter of 7 pups and they were all given names of lucky items. Her nickname was Wishbone. I wanted to keep the name, but they told me she didn't know it so we could name her whatever we wished. She's a sweetheart. A real ball of energy who loves to go on long walks and hunt down birds, squirrels and rabbits. She also loves to cuddle and give hugs and kisses.
Bio: As to her mix, the rescue group thought she was Beagle & Treeing Walker Coonhound. A few folks thought she had Foxhound in her as well. DNA test showed TWC, Beagle, and a bit of Greyhound (!). Her coloring seems more like an English Coonhound's, though. Hm. No matter what, she's as sweet as they come.
Hi fur-iends! How has everyone been? I'm sorry I haven't updated in a while. Mommy has been really busy and dealing with a stressful situation. I've been trying to cheer her up as much as possible. It's been very hot and humid here lately! Too hot to even take a walk during the day, so we wait until it's cooled down a little at night. All I want to do most of the day is lie in my crate in the cool air conditioning! I hope the weather cools down soon!
I hope you are all managing to stay cool too!
I can't believe it, 1 year ago today I found a loving home with my mommy. All my brothers and sisters had been adopted already and I was lonely. I loved my foster family, but I knew it wouldn't be forever. Mommy and her family and I have had so much joy, love and happiness this past year. Here's hoping for many, many more!!
