We pulled Greta from the shelter the same day we got Coral and Cassidy.
She has been at another foster home while we were gone, and we just got her here today.

She is fearful, scared by loud noises, but oh so very sweet.
She loves to lay with her head in my lap, and is hungry for affection.

She was bred to be a working dog, but wasn't working out for the rancher, so he dumped her at the shelter.
She has no idea how to be a pet, but she knows how to love.

She was doing well at her other foster home, and I have high hopes for her here as well. My house is chaotic, so she is being subjected to noises and movement, and all that stuff that scares her, but she is tolerating it well so far. Right now, she's sleeping peacefully on the couch like she's been there her whole life. :)


Greta was adopted by an absolutely wonderful family in Nevada. They have another rescued Border Collie who is older and just as gentle and sweet as Greta.
This could not have been a more perfect home for her. She fits perfectly there, and was SO confident and happy!
As soon as we got to their home, she was wandering about and exploring! She never explored at our house unless she thought she was alone.
She bonded with her new family rather quickly, and they say that she is doing great!
They've sent me this photo of Greta (Now Tessa) and her new buddy, Casey. :) Look at her happy face, and her ears up!

I'm so happy for her!


Greta was returned after several months due to her owners' health. We were sad about that, but it's part of rescue and we dealt with it, knowing that something good was around the corner.
And it was!
Greta's perfect forever home found her with us after only a couple weeks. She has the most perfect life now, where she is loved, and will never have to worry about anything again!

Mama Annabelle plus 7



9-23-10 We went and got Annabelle from the shelter just before we went out of town. She went to a great foster home where she gave birth to her litter of 7 puppies while we were gone. As soon as we got home, we went and picked her and her puppies up and brought them here. She is SUCH a sweet girl. Calm, quiet, loving, and such a good mama. We'll have her here for awhile, and I'm looking forward to watching her puppies grow.

The puppies at 2 weeks old:

LOVING these puppies and Mama! It has been a blast watching the puppies grow.
When they were about 4 weeks old, Annabelle developed some really horrid skin issues, and we needed to start weening the pups so that she could go on medication.
So we've been bottle feeding the pups to supplement. It's been fun. A lot of work, but FUN.
After a week, we started feeding them mash as well.
Now at just over 5 weeks, they are eating only puppy food, even though Mama still will feed them a couple times a day.
We each have our favorite pups, they all have such different personalities. I'm really loving the time that we get to spend with them.

And I adore Annabelle. She is SUCH an awesome dog, with a fantastic heart. She is always happy, and I love watching her play with the other dogs. She's AWESOME.


All of Annabelle's pups are gone. Mirabelle, Lorabelle, and Bluebell were adopted locally, and the other 4 went to HWAC and were adopted almost immediately.

Annabelle is still here, and we are loving her. What an awesome amazing dog she is. Sweet and loving, with the greatest personality ever.

I loved having her puppies here, and got very attached to all of them. I'm glad that a few of them were adopted locally so that we can watch them grow.

Lorabelle: Adopted locally. Her new name is just Belle, and she is such a gorgeous girl!

Bluebell: Adopted locally. Her new name is Fran, and she is a hiking, snowshoeing fool! LOL. She's absolutely adorable.

Mirabelle was adopted locally as well. I don't remember what they renamed her, but she is so freaking cute it hurts. :)

Isabelle. I'll miss this little gal! She went to HWAC.

Cowbell. My chunky monkey. What a sweet big boy. He went to HWAC.

Clarabelle, the sweetheart. She loved playing with the big dogs! She went to HWAC.

Barbell, the cuddler. He was such a gentle boy. He went to HWAC.


Mama Annabelle is adopted. I miss her dreadfully (especially since we have a litter of puppies here that she would love to take care of!). She's got a little beagle brother now, and a wonderful family who adores her like she is meant to be adored. She will have a great life with them! It was awesome having her here for so long, and I got very attached to her. Fetch isn't quite the same without her baying!

Coral and Cassidy


These 2 sweet girls were in a different foster home while I was out of town, and then they came to us Thursday.

Both shelter rescues, they were kenneled together, but they were not admitted to the shelter together.
We thought they were sisters when we first saw them in their shelter kennel.

Cassidy is younger, probably about 6 months, and a lab/hound mix.
She is so gorgeous, and has a personality to match her amazing looks.

A total sweetheart, very loving, and she almost bends in half with the bendy wiggles when you talk to her. LOL.
I love everything about her.. she is such a doll.

Cassidy was adopted! She went to a really great family with a couple little girls, and is going to have a great life with them. Her new name is Roxy!

Coral is older, probably close to a year, though we aren't sure yet.
She is a great little dog... too big to be a rat terrier, too small to be a pointer. No idea what her breed is. We think maybe some Whippet?

She has a great personality, with a happy fun attitude. Super sweet and cuddly too.

Coral went to a different foster home, and she may be getting adopted as well! WOO HOO!!!

Love having these 2 girls here. They are a lot of fun, and it's always nice to have cuddly dogs!

Ernie and Rocky

8-30-10 to 9-9-10

Ernie and Rocky both came from the shelter. They both went to different foster homes while we were in Oregon for a few days, then came back here until they went to HWAC on the 9th.

Ernie was a sweet little guy, about 4 months old. He loved everyone and was just a big goofy puppy, full of fun with a great personality. He's going to be a BIG boy!

Rocky was an itty bitty little huey with a GREAT personality! I absolutely adored him, and he was such a cuddle bug.
One of his ears had been cut off (grr!) but that just added to his charm. If we'd have fostered him any longer than we did, I think I don't think I'd have been able to let him go. I adored this little guy, and was immediately attached to him. We don't usually foster the small dogs here, but I'm glad we had a chance to love Rocky!

He was accepted at HWAC, and I'm sure he'll be going to his forever home soon!


9-10-10 to 9-18-10

Chloe came to us as an owner release because of family allergies. She was well taken care of, and deeply loved by her family.
She was an amazing dog with a great personality, and we absolutely loved her.

Of all the Weimars we've fostered, she was the first one who actually LOOKED like Amikah. She was a bit smaller, a teeny bit darker, and her tail was longer. But her face shape and mannerisms were so much like Amikah it was almost hard to tell them apart at times. LOL

We only had her a week before she was adopted, but what a great week it was!
It's a good thing we didn't have her any longer than that... I think we were falling for her. ;)


9-7-10 to 9-24-10

Ricky was a shelter rescue, but the people who adopted him ended up not being able to keep him so they called us rather than take him back to the shelter. And I'm so glad they did!

He is a DOLL.

Floppy little guy with long legs and a goofy face that makes you immediately fall in love with him.

He adjusted really quickly here, and settled in right away. He loved the other dogs and had SO much fun chasing them around the yard.

He was adopted almost right away by an out-of-state family, but we got to keep him for a week while we waited for them to come and pick him up. :) I'm glad we got that little extra time with him.

His new family is a perfect fit for him. They've promised photos and updates, so I'll be sure to share them here as well. I can't wait to see what he looks like when he grows into his feet! LOL.
