The Annie Dog


My mommy adopted me a little over 5 years ago while working as an in-home counselor in Tennessee. I was about 5-6 weeks old then. My original owners weren't able to take very good care of me, it was pretty scary there...I found my way into a little closet though and hid until social workers from my mom's agency came to the house. I barked at just the right time for them to discover me before they left. I was the only puppy from my litter that survived. My mom never had a dog before so she had to learn a LOT...but she decided to take me home anyway, we've been together ever since! My first owners told my mom I was a cocker spaniel/miniature schnauzer mix, but no one else seems to believe them. Most people think I am a lab puppy, even though I am close to 6 now! Mom thinks now maybe I am a border collie mix of some sort... what do you think?? Even though we don't know what breed I am, mommy looked right at my face the first time and gave me my name, she barely had to think about that at all. Others assume my name is from some little red-haired orphan, but it's really after "Annie Oakley" because mom said, the house I came from "was like the wild wild west"! I used to be just plain "Annie" but after people meet me they always seem to call me "The Annie Dog" and it just kind of sticks. Mom says it's because I am sooo important. She thinks I am a princess dog, whatever that means. I am a lil' bit spoiled. Maybe it means that...I love rope bones, chew toys, tearing up stuffed animals (only my own though), stealing socks from time to time, treats and I do a few tricks, too! We live in Virginia now and I like it here. I have a big fenced backyard which I never had before in Tennessee. I spend a LOT of time out there barking at those things with the long tails that are always gathering stuff & running around in the trees..."squirrels" maybe? I have endless energy! Sometimes people are a lil' overwhelmed by my "enthusiasm for life", but mommy doesn't mind it. I get soooo excited to see people, especially new ones...regardless though, I like to make people feel like it's the first time I've ever seen them...every time. I also have 2 new brothers which I am still getting used to...I think mom calls them "cats". I really liked the first few years, when it was just me and mom. But, the company is nice when mom is at work. I've had to guard my food sometimes lately which makes mom really upset. We are "working on that" she says... I say, if those 2 would leave my food alone, I would not have to protect it!
