Minnie finds a forever home

Guess who’s been grazing greener pastures?


Mmm, grass!

That’s right. Minnie, the enchanting husky mix with heterogenous eyes and the sweetest smile you’ve ever seen, has gone and found herself a new home.

We are so happy for her!

Considering what a catch Minnie is — housebroken, good with kids and other animals, leash-trained, obedient and so stinkin’ cute — maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised that we received immediate interest about her as soon as I re-ignited the campaign to get her adopted.

Two parties stepped up, and Minnie spent a weekend with both of them.

She wowed everybody, but the ideal match turned out to be my good friend Holly.

That’s the spot!

The bonus about Minnie being adopted by someone I already know and like to hang out with: I’ll still get to see the old girl.

In fact, Minnie recently stayed a few days with our pack while Holly was out of town on business.

Knowing that Holly, who used to volunteer at a shelter in California, would be an awesome dog mom, I actually suggested months ago that she consider adopting Minnie.

She wasn’t ready for a dog then, but I’m so glad she is now. These two gals make a pretty pair.


Best friends

As Holly’s only dog, Minnie gets to bask in so much more attention than she received at the Wayward House. She also now lives right across the street from a park, where she’ll no doubt get to play with some of the children she so enjoys.

I’m so happy with this arrangement that I didn’t even cry when Minnie moved out!

Thanks to everyone for supporting us on our journey with Minnie. Please keep passing the good vibes in Holly’s direction!

  1. Congrats to Minnie! It is so great that you get to see her still – I think if she had gone off with someone you didn’t know, it would have been so hard on you! So is Holly going to join our pack walks?!

    • I do believe we’ll be seeing Holly on some pack walks! And, if you can believe it, Minnie’s already good leash skills have actually been improving under Holly’s care!

  2. Big congrats to Minnie! Huskies (and the various mixes) are one of my favorite breeds, and I absolutely love their personalities and aloof yet loyal attitudes. And how great that you get to see her all the time! The perfect arrangement 🙂

  3. “Aloof yet loyal.” You hit that right on the head!

  4. Minnie is truly a gem. Holly brought her home for an overnight stay and I was a little skeptical. After all, we have adopted animals, a dog & two cats (they adopted us). There were no issues at all, she was a sweetheart the entire time. Holly fell asleep on the couch and after about 30 minutes, Minnie quietly got up & walked down the hall. I waited about ten minutes & decided to see what was going on. She had gone into the room where Holly had left her luggage, and was laying next to the bed. I was amazed. There were other rooms she could have entered, but she chose the “right” one. She is welcome to come home with Holly any time 🙂
