“Lauren told me that trying to get Fannie out of bed is a chore, And just like kids…they don’t wanna get out of bed…even for a photo shoot!”

This comes from Susie’s Senior Dogs:

 

LOOK who it is!!! It’s 13-year old-Fannie and her recently-found forever mom, Lauren!!

Fannie is the gal who was living at the Austin Pets Alive! animal shelter in Texas for more than 1,000 days. We put her story on SSD. Twice. The first post was a dud. Nada. Zero adoption applications. Fannie needed to be adopted as the only pet, but that’s hardly an issue. There are tons of single-dog adopters out there. So we shared again, and the second post garnered Fannie over 7,100 well-deserved shares…which (finally!) landed her in Lauren’s lap — her miracle mom!

Fannie and Lauren recently had a photo shoot with pet photographer Gloria (of Adire Photography) who volunteers her photography skills for homeless dogs at animal shelters.

Gloria wrote, “I found out that Fannie is super spoiled now and the girl sleeps like a rock and she snores (sorry Fannie, but it happens to the best of us). Lauren told me that trying to get Fannie out of bed is a chore and just like kids…they don’t wanna get out of bed…even for a photo shoot! LOL. Fannie loves treats, but only at home. She likes car rides, walks, and most of all – HUGS and KISSES!!! She liked me but didn’t like getting her picture taken, but she didn’t mind a Santa hat. [Santa hat photo in the comments.]

Lauren saved Fannie — gave her another chance to live out her life spoiled rotten with comfy beds, good treats, and lots of hugs and kisses. Thank you Lauren for loving an old girl the way you do – it takes a special person to love and adopt a senior dog… and you are that person!”

Yes, yes you are a very special person, Lauren. We love you and Fannie!
