So, by now many of you have "met" Frankie. She is a GORGEOUS Australian Shepherd mix who arrived to us via PetMatchmaker pet rescue all the way from TN. We will be fostering her, loving her, and housetraining (ug) her until she finds a new family. She is definitely insecure right now, constantly dodging our feet wanting to be right in between them for protection and a bit afraid to let us out of her sight. I'm a bit afraid to let her out of mine as well, as I was just alerted to more POOP! Jacob came up with her name (she came to us w/ the name Quasar. QUASAR!?!?!?!) after the character Frankie on the show Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Since this is a show about finding new homes for children's now unwanted imaginary friends and the example we used to teach them about fostering, it seemed a fitting monicker.
Tashi isn't all that sure what she thinks of this fidgety little invader, but is OK as long as we keep petting her first and playing with her. Jim just took her for a ride -- a special treat. As for the cats. NOT. HAPPY.
Oh well, they'll get over it! hehehe And she has very little interest in them. After being in this house of cats, dogs, and kids, I figure she will make someone a wonderfully tolerant and well adjusted pet. Here's hoping!
Oh! I'd I've begun dyeing in earnest again, so be looking for web-site and etsy updates!
