Introducing Anna.....
« on: October 20, 2006, 12:10:45 pm »
Anna Anna Bobanna....Chi quita Anna Banana...Here's ANNA!!

She is AWESOME!!!  They were later arriving than anticipated, so no one was even here when they arrived.  My SIL put Anna downstairs because when Anna saw Sheba the hair on her back rose up, and she was afraid to introduce her to Sheba.  I called home and found out, told her to put the two of them out in the yard together and let them work it out.  They were fine.

I got home about 20 minutes later, had just a few minutes to visit with her before having to zoom her down the vet for her initial appointment.  I was worried about that being her first meeting of me - but she was fine!  Put her in the back of the SUV and she immediately climbed over the back seat and was making her way to the front.  Anyhow  -  she is one smart dog and will be super duper easy to train.  Only took two put backs into the back before she got it - her place is in the back of the SUV.  Even when I was driving, she put one paw up on the back seat and I said "no" ... back she went.  One smart pupper!!!

The kids adore her.  She gives the most amazing kisses and hugs ... and loved her welcome gifts!  We had a new pillow for her, some rawhide, and a squishy squeeky basketball - all of which have been properly drooled over!

Anyhow, here a few pictures - not the greatest because they are with our phone camera but I figured better than nothing!

She's beautiful! I'm so glad Anna has found her home with you and that Sheba likes her too. Can't wait to see some pictures of both your girls sometime!

We had a semi restful night.  We have sleep issues with one of my husband's boys in this house (long story) that result in us not being able to have our door closed at night when he's here.  That didn't work well with having a new pup who we needed to be able to have a in our room (which is where our dogs sleep).  Anyhow, I won sleeping in our room with the dawgs and the closed door. 

Anna paced and panted most of the night, and did pee once.  Must have been during the one hour I slept!  But good girl that she is, she peed on her blanket that the breeder sent (which was quite thick) so none went on the carpet.

Sheba isn't quite up to sharing yet with her.  Anna went to cuddle in with Sheba last night and Sheba got up and moved to the other side of the room!  We'll continue to let them work it out ... there's no aggression that we're seeing on either side ... I think they're both just divas :)

The whole crew (husband, two kids, SIL and two dogs) have all gone for a walk/run this morning.  I'm enjoying my coffee and reflecting on how good my life is today!  Thanks for all the welcome notes for Anna Banana ... I have a sense I'm going to get some good stories out of our newly expanded crew!

And for those who wanted some pictures of Sheba ... here are one or two.  She is an amazing dog too - trained so well that we can take her anywhere, and all she asks in return is lovings.  We love her beyond description!  She's our baby girl :)






This is her with her old buddy Barkley
