Favorite Food: Anything that doesn't have lemon on it - really likes her bully sticks & Zuke's treats
Favorite Walk: Anywhere that has lots of open spaces
Best Tricks: She can stand on her hind legs, and she does a stomach crawl to get closer to anyone with the treat bag...even when she's been told to stay!
Arrival Story: Annie was adopted by our family in November 2008, after losing our Sunny-boy earlier in the year. Annie and her aunt, Rosie, were given into rescue together, and the rescue group wanted to place them both into the same new home. Apparently they were meant to be with us, because they waited many months before we came along and adopted them. After an amazingly fast trip down the I-5 corridor from Portland OR to just south of Stockton, CA to pick these two girls up, they've settled in like they were waiting for us to come adopt them all along.
Bio: Annie is very friendly, and her tail wags most of the time. She's become a little spoiled-she has her own chair to sleep on! She does tend to bark quite loudly when people go past the house on foot, bike, or skateboard, and makes sure everyone knows that we're protected by a big, scary, collie girl. Well, SHE thinks she's big and scary. Everyone else just thinks she's a cutie!
She has been taking agility classes for the past 3 months, and really looks forward to her classes. Her absolute favorites are the tunnel and the jumps. Sometimes, as if in order to make up for trying to skip the teeter board or A frame (she hates those two1), she will take off and go over the jumps and through the tunnel again, as if to say "Hey, see how well I do these?" She is very hard to resist, because she is just so darned cute! :)
She is amazingly smart! She's been learning obedience commands, and has even taught herself to open the screen door. Not that we like that particular skill, mind you! But it has definately taught us to always lock the screen door, lest she find her way out. Of course, she then barks to be let back in...hmmm. Clever girl!
