Tinsel, now Annie, left today!

I'm feeling sad today, because Tinsel , now officially Annie, left this morning.

She is going to her permanent family in Virginia.
I knew from the start that I wouldn't fail fostering 101, but I expected that she'd be here for a longer period of time.

However, the right family came along for her. They understand that, as a puppy mill dog, it may take a long time for her to come around and they are willing to wait and to continue working with her. She will have a Hav puppy sibling to play with and she'll enjoy that.

She and I were together constantly for the time that she was here and I will miss her cute face and gentle nature. It's amazing how attached one can get to a dog that doesn't even come to you! I admire her courage for trying so hard to adapt.
I'm so nervous waiting to hear how her adjustment is going.
She was groomed a few days ago and here is her latest picture. Quite a difference from the first one!

Hugs to you Nan...I'm sorry for you but so glad Annie has found a forever home. She's adorable with her new cut. I'm sure her new family will love her, just as much as you'll miss her.

What a great happy ending for Annie. I am sure you will miss her and she will miss you, but how wonderful it is to hear that she is starting a new life with a family willing to work with her. Thank you so much for devoting so much of your time and kindness to her. She really is a beautiful girl! I love that picture!!

Annie really is pretty - love her coloration! How bittersweet it must be for you. Missing her but knowing that under your care she has progressed to the point she is able to move on to her new family. I really admire those of you who foster these little ones and work so hard to give them a better life. May she continue to do well in her new home and have a wonderful life!

What a super sweet thing you did for her!! She's a pretty girl and I'm sure since you started her on the right path, she'll do great.

I can feel your pain. I hope her transition is an easy one and that she loves her new family. Sending you a cyber hug.

This must have been hard. She is continuing her journey and it hurts to let go, even when they go to a good home. You have done sooooo much for Annie. Hugs........

I just spoke with Annie's new mom and she is doing great! Her first night went well, and she seems to be settling in and making a good adjustment.
Now I can relax
