Our house is now her home

Back in February I wrote about a little dog that came to our house one night when the temps plunged into single digits.
She belonged to a neighbor so the next morning after it warmed up, we petted her profusely and put her out before we left for our appointments.
When I returned mid afternoon, the little dog was on our couch. I called Jilda to see if she'd let her back in before she left, but she hadn't. Apparently the dog (we named her Taz) came around the back of our house, scooted under the fence gate and came into our house through the doggie door.
I think the little critter was heaven sent because last month was a difficult months for Jilda. She spent many hours on the sofa resting. Taz would not leave her side.
We were crazy about Taz, but Jilda fell in love with her.
This week we finally talked to our neighbors and they told us that we could keep the Taz. We both did a little happy dance when I hung up the phone.
We are thrilled that she made our house her new home.


  1. I'm so happy for all of you...some things are just meant to be!

  2. Taz is so adorable..awe :-)

  3. Everybody loves a good dog story!.

  4. I have been wondering about this sweet and beautiful li'l dog.
    I'm so glad that she has a forever place in your hearts and your home.
    Love to you both...and to Taz,

  5. I am so glad it's settled and the pup is finally yours for good! You all were meant to be each other's family! It sounds like Taz is just what you and especially Jilda needed right now, and y'all are definitely what Taz needs! :)

  6. I remember that post!! I am so glad that you get to keep her. You and Jilda have huge hearts my friend.

  7. What a sweet story. Taz is adorable and precious.

  8. Welcome Home Taz. You will be so loved.

  9. I am glad she was lucky enough to find you. As for her neglectful ex-family who left her out in the bitter cold (how do you forget to let a tiny dog back in?), shame on them for making such an awful home that a dog has to go looking for a good one. Kudos to you and Jilda (and lucky Taz!)

  10. I do not know who is luckier: Jilda & you or Taz. Adorable dog!

  12. Fate brought her to your door and she knew a thing when she saw it :)

  13. I was wondering about that little guy! How great you get to keep Taz! Love the pic of Jilda..she looks over the moon happy!

  14. Thank God. I've been worrying about that dog.


  15. Aww...who could give up a sweet pup face like that? I am so glad Jilda has a new "baby" to love on- xo Diana
