We have NEWS!!!

It's Doodle! Ooooh, this weekend is gonna be SO exciting!! Nana closes on her new house today and gets the keys and now we have somewhere new to hang out!!!! More bout that later - now the HUGE-NORMOUS news!!!

Nana is always on Petfinder just to "look" and the other day there was a dog. Well, duh, it's Petfinder, of course there's a dog. You know what I mean. Anyway, her and Mom went yesterday to see this girl at the Grapevine Animal Shelter. She was reeeeally scared and timid, she wouldn't come up to Mom at all. Saturday was her "last day" there, Mom won't tell me what that means and said I worry too much already. They think she was abused, she's pretty jumpy and doesn't like stuff coming at her fast. Nana said she was going to "think about it" overnight and then this morning they went and sprung her from jail!! She went to the office where she was kinda scared for a while but now she's comin' right out of her shell. She's still nervous, but doing better.

She had a rabies tag - the people who dumped her at the shelter said they had gotten her shots done so Mom called the vet office. The vet told us those people got her in August and named her (gag) Vanilla Bean. Her new name is Shadow cause she's black (even though she looks gray in some pics and cuz Nana gets her new house today and it's on Shadow Lane!). We don't know why they took her to the shelter, they just said they didn't want her anymore. So she's been there a week waiting for a new family and now she has all of us! AND we're only gonna live around the corner which is exciting cuz we'll have playdates like ALL the time! We can't wait to meet her.

In case you're wondering, she's part Bloodhound and part Lab. Does that make her a Blab? Bloodretriever? Ick, that sounds gross. Bloodador?

Here she is when they left the shelter... After she met her new brother Buddy...She was pretty worried and just hung out by Nana while she worked.Finally she fell asleep in Mom's office - she was happy to have something soft after a week on concrete....and here's a face shot! Don't her eyes droop funny like Bear?I bet you thought Mom got us another sibling, huh? Admit it, it's ok.
Love,
Tucker

Oh, that face! Makes me just want to cry, but happy tears because she's got a wonderful home now! I shudder to think of "last day". I like "blab" as a name for her "breed". Congrats on your new home, Shadow!!

OhhhhOhhh muzzer is in love. "That Face, that face" she keeps saying. But I will admit that Shadow is one handsome dog, and they eyes are fabulous. Congratulations to your Grandma and to your mom for finding her.

We try to keep muzzer off of Petfinder, but hey, lots of good things come from there....after all, that's where they first found me!

She's beautiful and her faces makes a human want to just melt. Congratuations to Nana and to the rest of your family. You have a new addition and a great new playmate!

Tasha & Eva said...

Such exciting times for your pack! Shadow is very lucky to be going to such a great bunch of pups and humans! We think that in no time at all, Shadow will be comfortable with her new environment and she will be a playful pack member. Tell your mom enough with the costumes already. At least wait for Halloween! Thrawn and Bear look like they have become best buds! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.
