Annie More about Annie:  Ahhh, Miss Ann!  She truly is a REAL SWEETHEART (especially when you're watching her!)  If you don't keep a pretty keen eye on her ... she can be a bit of a challenge!  She, sometimes, wants to play with the other Bupps, but she has a history of playing a little too rough and the other dogs just flat refuse to play with her.  She insists on licking Gall's face and that NEVER goes over well.  But she will "lie in wait" on anything that is moving!

Annie was a little greedy one weekend scavenging all of the small bits of bone that were scattered around the place and ended up getting a compacted intestine that required surgery.  She healed up fine, but does have to take special pills before she eats to help her digest her groceries.  READ MORE about her digestive processes.

Annie was the most injured by the August 2015 snake attack of the surviving dogs.  She lost all of the muscle on the right front side of her skull and this has left her with a pretty significant divot in her head - kind of like a "reverse knot-head"!  But she's still ready to go!
