From the owner of Franny (now Nico):
The first thing I have to say is THANK YOU - thank you for being an outstanding human bean and doing what you do with the Pound Dog Blog (I laugh, I cry, I snort), and thank you for bringing our little pooper into our family.
My mom found your blog earlier this winter after we decided maybe we're ready for a new pooch and to rescue - we lost our big black Lab two years ago and it's one of those things that's still hard to address aloud without feeling like public embarrassment is imminent. When you posted about the Anishnabe dogs and then those awful awful awful terrible little tiny puppy pictures, my brain short-circuited and reverted and went "MINE MINE PUPPY MINE!" When they reached appropriate adopting age, I saw this and I called Mom and screeched "MOM PUPPY NOW!" and the next day we went in to TAS-S and fell in love (with everyone, really, how can you not?, but you know, we just couldn't fit them all into the car).
Franny, now Nico (our cats, Bowie and Iggy, are thrilled), is a perfect angel, shockingly well-behaved despite the Scientific Fact that puppies are destroyer ADHD insano-poop machines (to my knowledge she's only eaten one pair of shoes and one leather jacket!). She wants to be a lap dog, despite her future big dag genetics, and she's super smart, despite her hilarious battles of clumsy puppy coordination vs hardwood floor. She's just so full of love and puppy happy that she wants to be best best best friends with everything she meets, and having someone be that excited when you come home makes you just wanna explode with love. She really has brought something wonderful back to our family - Mom drinks wine and gets all sappy, "I don't know who rescued who," but she's absolutely right.
Any word on her sister? Would love to know how she's doing!
Again, a bajillion thankyous, what you do really is incredible.
Thank you for taking Nico and giving her such a good home. She looks almost full grown now and very happy indeed.
