Happy Tail: Amelia - First of three Amigos to find Furever Home
Amelia has left to join the Keltner home, where, as it should be, she'll be spoiled rotten. Author Peg Schaeffer had a chance meeting with Trinket while shopping in town; the puppy was cordial with her and another dog from Sugarfoot and happy to see them, but couldn't wait to get back with her new family. Amelia was engaged toy shopping, too.

I wrote a Happy Tail about "The Three Amigos" a while ago and wanted to give an update.
Trinket's (the Beagle/Basset mom) puppies are now three months old and available for adoption. Amelia was the first to find a home. Sarah Keltner and her Mom came to the farm looking for a puppy.
The dogs and puppies were all playing in the yard and she spotted Amelia, all white with a brown patch over her eye and a crooked tail. Amelia trotted up to the fence and it was love at first sight. She held the puppy in her arms and Amelia snuggled into her jacket and licked her face. That's all she needed to do. Amelia found a new home.
Sarah came back the next day to pick her up. Amelia was playing in the house and ran to me when I called her name. I scooped her up, she licked my face, and I couldn't help but to feel a little sad. She was born here. She was the one always traveling across or under the blankets. There was always a special place in my heart for her. Handing her over to Sarah made me feel good though. I knew this little girl was getting a "furever" home and would be spoiled rotten.
The following Saturday, I saw Amelia while in town. She came in with her new owner, Sarah. Amelia was sporting a red collar with matching leash. She saw Kelsey, one of my dogs, and trotted over to play with her. I picked her up to give her a hug. She gave me a quick lick, but had to go. Her new Mom was buying her toys.
Sometimes the hardest part about rescue is letting go of dogs you've saved. Each one is special in their own way and some have a way of working their way into a special part of your heart. But as hard as it is to let them go it's always rewarding. - Peg Schaeffer
