When Landon had healed enough to be introduced to soccer, Hannah (who is the family soccer star) was careful with him and watched his every move. As Landon grew stronger, so did his bond with Hannah. They played together, kissed each other, and slept by each other. Over the next few years, as Cosette, Molly, Mishka, and Shelby aged and passed away, Hannah grew even closer to Landon. They hung out together, and Hannah even accompanied Landon to some of his community and charity events.
When Hannah arrived in her new home, she did not seem to know what a house was, as she had likely been kept outside for her entire young life. She had an innate sweetness about her and was also innocently wild, running and jumping around like a gazelle in her own little world. She had a lot of learning to do, but it was apparent early on that she was sensitive and very wise. She seemed very aware of human emotions and she aimed to please. To learn how to walk on a leash, she was teamed with Cosette (who was an amazing walker, having been trained for dog shows by her breeder, prior to the breeder abandoning her). Hannah learned well, and she herself became an expert walker, who served as a walking mentor for Landon and also later on, for her newest sheltie sister, Tessa. Hannah is quite shy around new people and dogs, but she braved going to obedience school, even graduating with honors.
