A few weeks back I lost my 14 year old chihuahua Molly. I was so sad, she’d been my sweet girl for so long. It’s not as if we were without a dog, we still had four. But I missed Molly and I love chihuahuas. I still have her brother and he is also a senior citizen. Molly can never be replaced but it seemed the right thing to find a rescue chihuahua who needed a forever home. I searched around on PetFinder and found several dogs. After a day of thinking it over, and with Tom’s encouragement, we took a ride to Laconia to the animal shelter to meet a cute little pup who had been abused and was in need of a good home. As these things go, it was love at first sight. I adored her and she was quite happy to cuddle with me. The shelters requirement was that our other 4 dogs come for a meet and greet. So the very next morning we loaded our 4 dogs into the van and off we went again for the 90 minute ride. Our dogs were calm and docile - no problems, so were were approved for the adoption and took our new family member home that day! We named her Annie and she is so adorable. She bonded to me immediately and is very sweet. She came to the shop the first weekend we had her and she climbed up on the back of my chair, put her head on my shoulder and had a nap. She is timid with men, perhaps it was a man who abused her. My husband Tom is winning her over with his calm and patience and the other dogs have accepted her. We are happy to have her in our family.
