Playing with Sparky. Yes, they're fast becoming best buds.
Pulling her tail, but really she's a sweet dog.
Papa's hand, just small nibbles...
She way prefers my homemade to the kibble, but hey, who wouldn't?
Out!! We've been to the doggie park, but not on a leash walk yet.
Sleeping. When she plays, she plays hard. And when she rests, she is out cold!
Winkie passed away recently and the pack just wasn't the same. He was the instigator of all play and the house was just too quiet. We looked online on many, many adoption sites but decided to hit the local shelters first where a potential's days were numbered and danger was imminent.
First we went to BARC, but there were mostly big dogs there (we live in a small condo and have two other dogs and three cats!). Then to the Harris County shelter. Kiki (aka Shawna) had been there for a month and the lady who was assisting us mentioned that she was her project and had been trying to get her adopted, but no one was picking her. She had been a stray. We looked at two others there and it was so hard to make a decision. But here we are and I know we made a great choice.
Kiki is a wonderful dog! We chose to call her Lola, but that evening the name Kiki came to me and I gave it a try. She responded instantly! Her original name must have been something similar sounding. She's a terrier, but not quite as high strung as some other breeds. She's very loving and trusting and just gives kisses non-stop, but she's also a seriously sharp-eared guard dog! She's not overly jealous of the other dogs and does not beg for food when we're eating. Doc says she's 14 pounds and very healthy. Kiki is very sturdy with a solid neck and torso and strong, too.
