Hi - thank you all for all of your replies!!
Things have been absolutely crazy over the past 6-7 weeks that I haven't had the time to get back on here...
I was able to find a sweet little LW girl down in Texas back in May. The jerk breeder had already put down her sibling, (just because it was blind) and was about to do the same to my little sweetie because she is deaf. [She also has limited vision - micropthalmia & her pupils don't dialate closed.]
Have always rescued older adult dogs in the past so having a 6 month old around the house has been a challenge to say the least! (I keep telling my son that if I hadn't already gone through the "terrible twos" with him - and survived it! - I would have already gone crazy by now.) It is SOOOOO just like having a two year old kid around again... "No, No. Take that out of your mouth. No, No. You can eat that. No, no. Don't put that in your mouth." Just when you think you have the place "baby proofed" - out she comes carrying something else you'd forgotten to hide away! LOL Keeps ya on yours toes!
Her name is "Anam Cara", it means "soul friend" in Gaelic. Though she has earned the nickname of, "Frappacino" now. She's always been really good about responding to my wagging finger and big 'frowny face' whenever she was doing something she was not supposed to be doing. However, the other day when I bought one of my guilty pleasures, a Frappacino from Starbucks, she got one whiff of it and I litterally had to fight her for it!
Just as soon as I get off my lazier than usual rear here, I will get some pics up of her.
