    Is the name of my new dog.

    She is a ~12 year old border collie X. She is heartworm positive and appears to be at least partially deaf. She is afraid of the stairs in the house (but uses the ones on the deck just fine). Loves treats and food, loves being in the car, loves being outside exploring.

    I haven't really taken pictures yet, so 2 from the rescue and 1 from my phone will have to suffice!

    She's a bit of a chub and needs to lose some weight, but her foster mom said she looooves walks so hopefully we can work on that. I've never rescued a dog before so I kinda picked a bit of a doozy for my first one, but so far she seems to be settling well and seems like a cool dog. :)

    Oh, I most certainly can :p

    It all happened quickly! I've had my eye on her for months, but finally got serious about it. I think it was Thursday when I contacted the rescue about her, and she came home this morning! She'd been in foster care for a year, and I was the first person to show interest in her.

    She's a really sweet girl. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow so I could spend more time helping her adjust.

    Oh gosh. Her name is Happy AND she's a senior. It's like she's poking all the soft spots on my heart. I kind of welled up with tears here.
    She is a lovely looking old lady.
