Missy Mae is doing very well with us.  She is a busy girl and lets us know about every 2 hours during the day that she HAS to play BALL!!!  We discovered quickly that we could not have any toys in the house for her, as she just doesn't know how to quit playing fetch!  So all play time is done outside.  She would play fetch till she drops!  She also enjoys taking walks with us down our dirt road and into the woods.

She has fit in very well with our other 3 dogs.  Sadly, our oldest dog, JoJo passed away last week after a surgery to remove a large tumor.  :(  We are heartbroken, but Missy Mae keeps us up and going.  :)

Here is a pic or two of Missy Mae. 

Our Vet verified that he agrees with your Vet that she is around 8 years old.  I still have a hard time believing it, as she is SUCH an energetic dog.  She must have been a holy terror in her younger days!  :)

All in all, we are very happy with Missy Mae and she has fit in with our family very well.  :)


Gidget (we kept her name) has been a wonderful addition to our family.  She's such a sweetheart and greets everyone with a tail wag.  Her favorite is belly rubs and cuddling with her human brother and sister.  We are working on leash training. Her hound nose likes to pull us in her direction, but it's a work in progress!  We've fallen in love with her in just a few short weeks. Best decision ever!

Spoke to Marlene (the new parent of Justice). Justice is now known as Sherekahn, which means “tiger king.”

Marlene says: “He is fat and sassy. He’s magnificent. He’s a wonderful companion. He’s entertaining. He’s just a dear. I love him very much. He’s very active. He can jump so high, it scares you. He’s turning into a little cougar. He climbs up on the top of the refrigerator to get to the cupboards. With the first snow, he went crazy and was trying to bat at the snowflakes through my screen and made a little hole in the screen. I do guard him very closely. When meals on wheels come, I give him a treat in the bathroom until my meal arrives. When I die, Gigi stands next in line.” (Gigi is her granddaughter from California who helped pick him out at the shelter.) Marlene said that Sherekahn has a home as long as she lives AND will have a home with Gigi when the times comes that it may be necessary.
