September 3rd 2001

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.

Favorite Toy:
Sadly, she doesn't show much interest in toys, but we will keep giving them to her and encouraging her.

Favorite Food:
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.

Favorite Walk:
Kenny adores going for her nightly walk around the neighborhood with her dad.

Best Tricks:
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.

Arrival Story:
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!

My New Forever Home

Goodbye My Friends

We are so very sad that Dogster is closing. We would have liked to send out a farewell message to you all as our Pup Pals, but there seems to be no such function for that here. We have been on the site as a family for over nine years. Dogster was our dog social site First Love. We started with Cuailgne and Lindsay who made many friends here. They passed to the Rainbow Bridge and mom and dad needed support, which they found here. Later MacKenzie Girl and Connor Mac Nessa joined our Dogster family. They made new friends here too, and when they passed to the Bridge mom got lots of support from her friends here. Finally I joined Dogster and just a little later my fur brother Doolie joined. We were not as active as some of our other family dogs, but we still enjoyed coming here and making friends, reding articles, and participating in surveys and discussions. We are sad that we must say good bye now. We are grateful to Dogster for making it possible for us to meet and connect with so many dogs, their famlies, and in some cases we all made a difference in issues such as there's Michael Vick case, and others like it. We can be found on sniffsnwags, and Pawshoovesandclaws, or dynamicpups. Farewell to you all. We wish you happiness and every success for your family. xoxox


My Gotcha Day!

Labor Day is my Gotcha Day. That's when our family celebrates when I first came to my New Forever Home. It's been two years now. I remember when I first came home I didn't have any fur. Now it's all grown in so nicely. I have bows and new fancy outfits made just for me by my mom. I love my dad too. He sneaks me snacks when mom's not looking. Tee-hee! I especially like it when dad picks me up. I feel so safe. I love my little fursib Dooli. He barks a lot, but that's o.kay. He's fun to watch! I love all my home made food here. Today I had salmon, peas, yogurt, egg, and beef. Isn't that something? Sometimes I get my own mail too, from my friends Kylie, Rani, Cammy, and other doggies on the net. My mom still takes lots of photos of me, and guess what, I've pretty much gotten over my fear of the flash. I always get really great snacks when the photo session is over, and I love that! I miss my Auntie Linda, who is my faery dogmother at Sheltie Shack Rescue, but sometimes she comes to visit me. I still remember her, and she always picks me up and gives me great hugs and kisses. I love my new Forever Home. xoxoxo


I was a Diary Of the Day Winner!

Guess what? I was a Diary of the Day Winner today! Isn't that cool? Now I'm a published author. I think I should have my own Apple lap top don't you? I mean a published author shouldn't have to share a computer. I need my own space to create! I'm pretty sure I'm gonna need a new tiara too. I have to keep up my 'dignity' in public. I should hire a photographer too, to make some publicity shots. I wonder where I could find a decent photographer? Hmmmmm...
