Annie Pupdate the Nth

Nana and I have had some questions lately about Annie, the goofy little dog we're fostering from a shelter in Daejeon that's being forced to close. (Previous posts, possibly out of order: 1 2 3 4 5 6.) Ask and ye shall receive.

First of all, Annie's in pretty good health. She recently had her follow-up heartworm test, which came back negative, and as a result she's starting her course of shots. Also, she's nearly housebroken, though she has gotten into the habit of devouring the unspoilt sections of her pee pad, which is a pretty big accomplishment, considering how she came to us going on everything in sight. So if all else fails, we've nursed a sweet (though stupid) little dog to health and gotten her ready for a family.

Which leads us to the next question: What happens to Annie this summer? It was always out intention to foster Annie, not to adopt--especially with the possibility of grad school in the UK looming on the horizon (the UK's regulations on importing dogs are downright inhumane). That said, she's going to spend the summer at a rescue clinic in town, where she'll be put up for adoption. If she doesn't find a permanent home this summer, we'll take her back in August, but if she does, we'll find another pup to foster (trust me, there are plenty).

In the meantime, we're enjoying her company while we can.

Here is Annie looking camera-shy:
And here is Annie guarding her hoard of socks, which she collects from the floor almost the moment we drop them:Notice the eye lasers, ready to strike at a moment's notice.
