That's how we described her when she first arrived at Heartland. She seemed to have given up. There was nothing wrong with her little body, her spirit was damaged. She would face the wall. She didn't react to hands or treats, resigned to her fate. At least that's what she thought.
She is learning to explore now. Enjoying new freedoms, playing, finding out that hands don't always hurt, sometimes they can be kind and treats can be good fun.
Her name is AMARA. It means courage and strong in African. Eternal and unfading in Greek. Everlasting and beloved in Latin. She is all those things.
His name is JIMMIE and he thinks Amara is beautiful.
They met in a basket on Valentine's Day. Jimmie liked her right away. Amara is playing hard to get. She keeps trying to tell Jimmie that SHE will be in charge. He is okay with that. Jimmie is a very laid back bun whose feelings are easily hurt. Be kind to him Amara and he will love you forever.
He is already watching out for you.
Stay tuned for the continuing saga of Jimmie and Amara
