The Family – Mandy and Anya

A few years after Diva passed away, we wanted another toy fox terrier. We found one on the Petfinder.com website and I drove all the way to the Humane Society in Inverness, FL to pick her up. She was as cute as could be.

As I was signing the paperwork, the lady pointed to another small dog and said, “She is bonded to this sweet little girl, Anya, and they have become quite a pair.” She told me that Anya had been at the shelter for 10 months. Apparently, no one wanted her because she wasn’t pretty – she had unusual coloring and one odd-looking eye. Of course, we decided to take her as well. As I started to leave, the lady looked at the dogs and said, “Come on girls, it’s your lucky day!” And, as you can see below, it was. They went from a cage at the pound to lounging in the sun.

Neither dog knew how to walk on a leash, so the process began to train them for their upcoming RV trips.

Mandy and Anya have turned out to be sweet dogs, although little Mandy can be a bit spunky. She does not share her master well. Anya is an all-around well-balanced girl and she has assumed the role of mommy in the family.

“Me first! No, ME first!”

  1. I’m Mandy, the cute toy fox terrier. Dad saved me from a shelter in Inverness, Florida. I may be little, but watch out. I’m aloof because I have a pedigree.
  2. I’m Anya, a chihuahua from the same shelter. I went home with Mandy to help her chill out. (She’s high strung.) I’m the sweet mommy in the group.
  3. I’m Rico, a rescue from Underdog in Bradenton. They call me the psychohuahua in the family. I find that a bit insulting. But I’m the boss, so it doesn’t matter. 
  4. I’m Binski, a “Teddy Roosevelt rat terrier” from a breeder in Brandon, Florida. I have a pedigree too but I’m not uppity like Mandy. Unfortunately, I developed glaucoma and had to have my eyeball removed. But I’m doing fine. And I think I look cute winking at you. Besides, I’m a real lover-boy.

We’ll be your guides to some of the best sniffing spots in Florida and surrounding states. And our dad will share some things he has learned about staying safe, comfortable, and making us feel like royalty when we’re on the road!
