Winifred (Winnie) Rose was brought up from a high-kill shelter in Georgia when she was about 9 months old. She had traveled around quite a bit, mostly through Southern states, and somehow ended up being rescued by one of my classmates and held as a foster dog. I was sitting in class one day in October and overheard my classmate trying to persuade my teacher into adopting the puppy. "She's the sweetest black labrador, you'd love her! We need to get rid of her soon because we're starting to get too attached," she had said. My own dog Bailey Wilbur had just recently died two weeks before, from bone cancer. I knew my family was looking for a new dog, but I also knew that my Mother was set upon getting an Airdale Terrier. At the time, Winnie's age wasn't really known, only bits of her background- but for some reason, I felt like she was the one we should adopt. If I hadn't been in such an abnormally good mood that next Friday morning driving into school, we never would have gotten Winnie. I told my Mother about her, and she agreed we could take a look! The minute we got to my classmates' house, Winnie jumped right into the car as if to say, "take me home!" :) For the first few weeks having Winnie in our house, she was perfect. It was as if she was saying, "I'll just sit here with my paws crossed and be a good girl. That should keep me here for a while." Which, it did- and even when she developed a naughty attitude for teething on everything, we still put up with it and kept her. When you lose a dog who is very, very close to you; and especially tragically- you get a pain in your heart that seems to last forever. However, Winnie was the one bandage that could stick to that injury and heal it. We're so glad to have her and she's the most wonderful puppy imaginable :)

Winifred reminds me of a dog I had who just came to our door -- a stray and walked in to join our family. Beautiful black dog -- so glad she adopted you.
