There's a reason I haven't mentioned Blondie in a few days. She's at my daughter's house on a trial run; if she's house trained, and no unforeseen problems arise with the other dogs, etc., Rachel's family is going to adopt her. If they keep her, her name will be Annie. Which sounds a lot more like the name from her previous life which, we learned, is Sam. (Sorry Joanna, but I'll find something to name after you. There are nameless kittens in the barn right now.)
I hope this works out, for the simple reason that as a house dog, Little Orphan Annie will be much safer. But I will miss her; I already do, in fact. If it turns out she can't stay at my daughter's house, she's welcome back here. She simply has to be an outside dog if she returns, that's all.
