Kenny likes to cuddle with her people, and loves a nice soft bed. She loves to nibble our fingers and will sometimes give us love bites!
Kenny doesn't like thunder storms, although we have noticed that she is less frightened of them now, than when she first came to us. We cuddle with her and reassure her she is safe, and give her treats to help her get over some of her fear.
Sadly, she doesn't show much interest in toys, but we will keep giving them to her and encouraging her.
Kenny LOVES chicken! Luckily she gets a fresh human-grade diet with mostly meat. That is supplemented with a specially formulated powder made for dogs with a meat diet. Plus she gets yougurt, cottage cheese, trout, salmon, sardines, and beef liver.
Kenny adores going for her nightly walk around the neighborhood with her dad.
Dancing and spinning when it's dinner time, barking when her dad disappears into the basement, barking at the mail carrier, and sitting still when it's time to have some bows put into her fur.
Kenny came home with us at the end of September 2011. She is a rescue Sheltie that was found in the woods near a highway. We adopted her from the Sheltie Shack Rescue of Blue Rapids, Kansas. When she was originally found by some good Samaritans, she had been in the woods for several days and her fur was a mess. They shaved her fur to help get the ticks, sticks, and other mess out. After only about 5 months, her fur grew back in just fine, and she has a beautiful coat typical of a black and white tri Sheltie. Kenny is about 10 years old, the vet estimates.
More information as we get her story!

Crikey!! Just when mom was starting to think about mucking the rose beds out because they have buds on them, we got this horrendous snow storm. We got 7 inches of snow in one hour, and over the 48 hour period, our town averaged 4 inches of snow per hour, with a total of about 12 for our area. All the schools, and most of the businesses were closed. The highways were covered in snow and of course there were some fender benders. Dad stayed home cuz his shop is far away and the roads were either closed, or not passable. That's a LOT of snow. Some areas lost power, but not us. We were o.kay. Dad made the porch, side, and back yards safe for us pups by shoveling a path for us, which is really nice. Now we don't have to get all wet to go out and do our business. Even the birds got a cleared out spot so they wouldn't fall in the snow while trying to get their food. Today it's a bright sunny day out, but the snow isn't melting too much. It will likely stay on the ground for awhile. I like playing in it and eating it too. It's exciting, but I don't want any more snow. This is enough! xoxo

I am so sad. There was a fire at Sheltie Shack Rescue where I was adopted from and where my Auntie Linda lives. The beautiful big red barn with the wonderful stone foundation, and the red silo burned to the ground. It looks like a total loss to me. Luckily, very luckily, there was no loss of life for either animals or humans. But we loved seeing that barn whenever we would visit Sheltie Shack, or visit the web site. But we are so relieved that there were no injuries or loss of life. Anyone interested in donating can go to sheltieshack.com and find information about that. We hope that Auntie Linda will rebuild soon. xoxoxo

My mom got me and Dooli both new chew toys! I lost most of my teeth before I came to live with my Forever mom and dad, so I don't really play with chew toys very much, but sometimes I would chew on Dooli's after he had chewed on it. But my mom wanted me to have my own chew toys in case I wanted to chew on something. Now I have some soft rubber toys, some harder Nylabone chews, and some other hard nubbie things to chew on. My mom also bought me some chicken flavored tooth paste. Now every night after our night time walk with my dad, my mom will first brush my fur, straighten my bows, and then gently she will brush my back back teeth. I usually lick off the toothpaste, and then mom has to get more. Then she will brush all my gums, my fangs, and will try to brush the top of my mouth, but I don't really like that very much and sometimes I fuss. When we are all finished, I always get a super good snack, like a piece of chicken, or a Charlee Bear Snack. Sometimes, if my dad is in charge of getting the snack, he will bring me a teeny bit of bacon! What's better than that? xoxoxo
