Katydid heads for her forever home.

Katydid comes home

It's been a month now since Katie came home with me, renamed Katydid because it seems to suit her.

I'm so happy that a friend who calls herself the Dog Detective let me know that Katie's previous family couldn't keep her anymore and that if a new home could not be found, her fate was sealed.

Well, she's stolen my heart, my pillow and any food that's fallen onto the floor.

Anne Gregory lives in Fort Wayne and works as the online writer and editor of She also picks out almost all of the Tall Tails photos.
