Update on Annie

As you know we gave our dog to new owners that have an alpaca farm quite a bit north of us. She is settling in well and seems happy. She has the full run of the place which is much larger than our place and has two other dogs which she is bossing around.

She has got used to the alpacas and has been herding them and rolling in their poop to confuse any wolves who may think she is an alpaca and then she will attack. So now she is ready to take her role as protector seriously. She has already alerted the owners to wolf activity and chased one off.

Here she is with her new owner. He has made her a kennel so I hope she likes it she is quite fussy when it comes to sleeping places although Maremma dogs are nocturnal and generally nap in the day as there generally no predator activity in daylight.

So now I guess it is time to let her go emotionally as well as physically, she has a good home and appears to be busy and happy so we have done the best we could for her and she has moved on, so should we.
