Designer Annie Taylor is a long time rescue advocate. All of her dogs have been rescues. One of the Christmas traditions in Annie’s family is visiting the local rescue to deliver items on the wish list.
After losing their senior dog, Satchel, last fall, Annie and her family began visiting Helping Hounds weekly to get their “doggy fix.” They have another senior dog, Zuzu, and were NOT looking to get another dog, much less a puppy. And then they saw Olive and it was Puppy Love! At first, I was going to call Olive a heartbreaker, but then I realized she’s actually mending the hearts of Satchel’s family. Thanks to Alice G Patterson Photography for these great photos of Olive.
Olive is about 12 weeks old and was born in Alabama, but thanks to a wonderful rescue transport, she came to Central New York. Olive is one of ten puppies from the same litter. I think they all have homes now, but there are more puppies in shelters everywhere!
On the day they met and adopted Olive, Annie’s son, Lincoln said, “This is the best day of my life!” I am pretty sure it is also the best day of Olive’s life.
She has a hairline fracture in her leg, but it is mending quickly. Olive is very nimble and has no trouble getting around.
Check back tomorrow to see what is in the box!
While Olive is not a replacement for Satchel, she has brought a lot of joy to her family. Olive is loved for being her cute, wriggly, sweet self.
