Welcome Home Jenny!

Recommended Posts

Please join me in welcoming our new girl, Jenny!  She is 1.5 years old, 73 lbs of black beautiousness who was originally named Jenny Rocks. No races to her name. Her nose curves to the left and she has a slight underbite. Adorable.  I'll post pix as soon as she settles in.

Congrats, and welcome to young'un Jenny! I hope she will be a heart healer for you. 

Thank you all!

The healing has begun. This is one sweet cuddle-bunny. She's got DH wrapped around her paw already. He's outside in the drizzle and hot hotness adjusting the height of two of our gates because Miss Jenny tried to squeeze under and could get her neck stuck. It's a love match!     :yay

Jenny's first day and night at home have been fairly easy. Except for some sporadic panting and whining, she's been doing well. She has appropriated DH's recliner, I like to think because she can be next to me  :blush, and is being taught the "Off" command  :P for when Daddy wants his chair.  She has had no accidents indoors! Good girl, Jenny!   Initially laser focused on the cockatiels, she has learned to "Leave It!" and has been ignoring them. Last night, we practiced not begging at the table. She seems to catch on pretty quickly to house rules. I'm starting alone training today as I see signs of separation anxiety.  

Jenny pretty much slept through the night on her bed in our bedroom. Tried to climb up with us but the "Off" command worked. She got me up at 4am to potty then went back to sleep until about 8am. Not a bad first night.  Annnnnnnd......she roaches!

Yes, we met Ottawa and several other great dogs.  I really wanted a male. However, you often don't get the dog you want but always get the dog you need if you pay attention to the cues.  :)  Jenny  chose us. She was so in to us - snuggling up asking for loves. She actually climbed up on DH's lap as he sat on a coach at the kennel. The boys were really not that interested. 

Also too, Jenny's nose curves to the left just like DH's who got elbowed once too often as a youth playing basketball!  :lol:

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Welcome home, Miss Jenny Rocks!  Another love bug, in the greyt tradition of Wendy and Lola.

Every grey I've ever known goes around and checks the gates in any new fenced area.  "Nice place.  Now,  how do I get out of it?"

She is totally channeling my two lovey-dovey gone-girls.  :wub:

Lola could open doors the had flimsy door knobs. I'm convinced that she had retractable, opposable thumbs. Wendy is the reason we have gates with hard-to-open latches. She could open them with her snout. Sheesh. Yesterday, Jenny looked like she was calculating how to either open the gate, jump over the fence or crawl under it. I think today she has come to the conclusion that this is a pretty good place after all and hasn't tried any escape shenanigans.

That;s awesome!  I've told the story here before about how Rocket picked us.  There was not a second of doubt that we were his people about 30 seconds after he walked into that Meet & Greet  and plastered himself against me.  He was still plastered to me 3 hours later.
