Za-za--za-Zahara!


Greetings from the Northwoods! We just celebrated our third month with Zahara. She was one the RR/Great Dane girls rescued in St. Louis, fostered in MI and WI and finally made it home to Stevens Point. Being first time dog owners, we have been having a roller coaster of a time. This is one happy family--how often do you get a dog that's fully trained (you wonderful teachers, you know who you are!), loves the car, eats snow, loves kids and acts as a 100lb blankie on these frigid -40F nights!?
Alas, I thought we had an angel dog...until today's lunchtime. You know the story: perfect dog who never "surfs"....all I did was turn to put the bread behind me and ZING! both pieces gone in a flash. She dropped one and by the time I picked it up, the other was gone and a smiling dog belched her thanks.
Sorry its such a long post, but as you may have gathered, we love our Zahara. Thank you to all who have helped bring joy into adopter's lives--especially ours.

She is just beautiful. Don't worry about being too long- we love to hear about all the dogs adopted from RRUS.

Thanks for sharing,
Amanda

Carolyn,

What an awesome update: and I love this picture. Thanks for adopting this love as she will always have a soft spot in my heart.

Can't wait to hear - and see - more from Za Za ZaHAra!

Gotta love those food hounds:) Better get used to it. With RR's, no food is ever safe. She looks great.

My first RR was so atypical that I was not prepared when Roadie, the normal RR, came home- even though I was warned by his foster mom. He got a whole loaf of whole wheat bread the first night- and he kept us aware of his little snack for a few days. That was too much fiber!!
