Note from Anna (formerly Snowball!)

Hi, I’m Anna! But most of you probably know me as Snowball. I made it into BDHPI when me and my pups found ourselves homeless. Now that my last pup has found her forever home and I can finally relax, I thought it would be a great time to update everyone on how I’m doing.

I traveled quite a ways… all the way from Wichita to Denver! My new pack leader – Nick – picked me up on the third leg of my journey and drove me and my friend Macy the Bull Mastiff to Denver to our new homes. Not sure why he was looking out the front window so much, the back window was much more interesting to me.

Since I’ve gotten to my new home, life has been great! Nick sleeps in compared to me. I try to get him up at 5:30 AM by pawing him on the face but he usually rolls over and sleeps till 6. I’m so happy when he gets up so I can go out and defend the yard!

Then I get my first walk of the day. I get two of them everyday. Most days we walk between 3-4 miles which has been so much fun! We even hike around the mountain up the street. I’d never been on a mountain before! The cars looked like little squirrels at first and I kept stopping to watch them.

I’m also excited to start obedience classes in a few weeks at Wag ‘n Train! And when my vet is sure I’m over my hook worms I get to start doggie day care at City Bark too! But until then, I’ve been making new friends at the dog park. Nick has a lot of other friends with dogs whom I get to meet as well. We went camping with 5 other dogs a few weeks ago, which was a blast! And now that I’ve learned how to hike I got to help Nick lead a pack on the trails.

But with all that’s new in my life, my favorite thing to do is cuddle up and take a nap… and Nick doesn’t seem to mind that at all.

All in all – now that all my pups are safe – life is good! I’m not sure a girl could be much happier in a new pack!

  1. What a beautiful girl that Anna is! Thank you for giving her a wonderful loving home...I imagine she has a pretty big paw to put in your face to wake you up. Too funny since I know exactly what that is like! Keep the updates coming!
