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.

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!
*doggie kisses*

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!!
