a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

I Promise...

 I will shut up about this puppy...soon.

I have had many wonderful suggestions for names and it was tons of fun reading all your suggestions.  I had to choose soon because Hubby was calling her Possum and that was not acceptable to me.

She is a firecracker!  She climbs like a cat.  She is training very easily and watches every move I make.  Hand signals will be a piece of cake for her.  No accidents with potty training and, yes, she is in the house!  It's too cold outside for a puppy, or that's the excuse I use.
She is quite content in her bed and goes there after each mad dash.  She runs after a thrown toy and takes it to her bed.  We are working on "Bring it" but I've only had her two days so give us time. 

Names are important to me and I was really leaning toward Hope, Grace or Faith because she seemed to be a Godsend at the time I needed it the most.

I considered her color, her personality, her actions, her look.  The names I offered to Hubby and Andrew did not cut the mustard.

Let me introduce to you, the newest member of the team At The Farm...Ki-Anne(cayenne).  I shall call her Ki.  I apologize in advance...oh, the stories I will have to tell!
Welcome home, Ki-Anne!

If she's climbing trees Gail, she might have a bit of Basenji in her...somewhere back in her history
