Meet the New Member of Our Family

Please meet Mandie Kathryn Shewbridge... she is an eight pound one year old Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher mix that we rescued from the Helping Paws Humane Society.  She had been abused before and was fostered by a lovely couple who took great care of her for the last few months and we are very grateful to them.  She is such a sweetheart and hardly makes any noise at all, she loves to cuddle and sleeps with us all curled up in a ball.  She is already potty trained, which makes my life much easier.  She is a bit skittish with people but eventually comes around with patience and gentleness.  She is getting along with the other babies in the house fairly well, but is still a little shy, I am sure in a short time they will all be life-long friends.  I am so happy that we were able to open our home and hearts to this little love. 












"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms."


~ George Eliot


If you are considering getting a pet for your family, please consider opening your hearts to an abandoned or abused pet from the ASPCA or Humane Society.  Check with your local shelter, you will be doing a wonderful thing for your family and for a loving animal.... you may even be saving a life.

OMGoodness I so knew after babysitting you would need more babies in the house :). Glad to hear she is potty trained!

What a little sweetie and I know she will fit in your house, you are the kindest person I know. And how do I know this, from reading all your post about your pets, the love comes through loud and clear. God bless you for taking her in, I love the name you gave her.

Yay for you two for adopting her! So many animals need good homes! And I am sure she will be another baby you will spoil and love!

Tami said...

How adorable. Makes me want to crochet something for her. :) I wish I lived closer, your puppies would all have more cute sweaters. :)

I am sure she is loving all the attention, poor little sweetie. She was adopted by the right home!

What happened, all the other dogs went home and your house suddenly felt empty?!

Did you have to buy her new dresses or are they all wearing the same size?

Do you have little mini doggy hangers and a whole closet of clothes? I don't think I have seen the same outfit twice.
