Hello, Dear Friends, I would like to introduce you
to the newest member of the family, 'Kai'.
Many of you know that we lost our beloved Border Collie,
Champ, in January.
Since then I had been pet-sitting for my daughter's
two mini-dachshunds, Peanut and Weenie Baby
until Jennie could save for and buy a home
of her own.
Weenie Baby has recovered nicely from her surgery,
although it was a little rough for her and
I had to take her back and forth to the veterinarian 4 times.
(Some sleepless nights, too)
Now that they are all back together, I knew it
was time to find a companion for Whitey Bear.
I was fortunate to find this little fellow.
His young master had to make the brave and difficult
decision to give him up due to changing
life's circumstances, and wanted a home
in the country so that Kai could have the freedom
he was unable to provide.
Here he is in Whitey Bear's too big harness
after our first morning walk,
holding a treat. It took much coaxing and soothing
to help him through the separation process, and we had
a sleepless night, but things are going well today
and Whitey Bear and Kai are bonding nicely.
Even the cats are comfortable with him.
After all the excitement he is all tuckered out
and sound asleep on the deck.
Both dogs are American Eskimo.
Sweet, sociable, curious, playful, and highly intelligent,
this breed needs lots of room to run
and lots of stimulation to keep them from getting bored.
And a good grooming schedule!
We look forward to many happy adventures together,
and his young master is welcome to visit any time.
Just look at that sweet face!
We promise to take very good care of
this little cutie-pie!
I know I have not been keeping up with all of
you lately. Life has been catching up with me!
Hopefully this week I can get back on track.
I've missed you!
