Imagine my surprise when Pretty called me this afternoon to tell me today was the one-year anniversary of our adoption of Charly from pawmetto lifeline, the place that had rescued the little dog from the kill shelter here in Columbia when her family of origin turned her in with a bad case of heart worms and an equally bad case of pregnancy. She had 11 puppies a year ago, and the eight who survived had already been adopted by forever homes when we met her. Charly a/k/a Dawn to her friends at pawmetto lifeline, hadn’t been so fortunate.
I couldn’t believe it’s been a year since we adopted her…

(separation anxiety was a bit of a problem at first)
But look at her now! She runs this place – literally.
she’ll be comin’ round the mountain – wheeeee!
(at warp speed)
hey, dude – shake a leg
Spike had been bereft after losing the final members of his pack last spring, but his pace has picked up with Charly in the house.
Charly has been a delight and joy for our family in the past year – she brings a little something extra to the mix. We are the better for her spark in our family dynamics – and we like to think we’ve given her an extra helping of love in return. It’s a win-win situation.
I just love it when a plan comes together.
