There is one more reason for my distraction.
I'd like you to meet Nana. (She's named after the border collie on Snow Dogs.)

|First day in a new home|
I have been in communication with a rescue organization for over a year. I had asked for an older herding dog, but the rescue lady insisted that I give Nana a chance and meet her. From the moment I picked her up, I knew she was the one.
We are taking extra precautions and limiting her to the dog run until she's had all her boosters. I've spoken to a couple of vets and both feel the parvo and distemper threats have since passed. The viruses can't survive triple digits, but I worry in case any strange dogs traipsed through our property after the initial viruses died.
After all we suffered last year, better safe than sorry.
|Tank and Nana: size difference|
Nana loves everyone, even when her exuberant affection isn't reciprocated right away. She's so sweet tempered, I fear falling into a diabetic coma. :o)
I've waited a long time for her. A week short of five years to be exact. I think my Chelly would approve.
