Arrival Story:
After having lost our golden retriever, we were left with a 12 year old aussie mix and a 3 year old Belgian Sheepdog. The old guy was having trouble avoiding sheep games and we thought that as we have had 3 dogs for a long time, we could get a younger one to play with the BSD. Whimsey is half his size and weight but makes up for it in attitude and they are fairly even in the roughness of their play.

Bio:
We ended up adopting Whimsey from GSRSV, which is where we adopted Ranger. It is with the greatest sadness and a broken heart that I add this to my Whimmey's profile. In June, she became less energetic. This happened gradually, but it became especially noticeable when she quit talking and wouldn't play with her squeaky toys. I took her to the vet, where she was diagnosed with Advanced Kidney Failure due to congenital deformities of her kidneys. Some of her behaviours would have indicated this to us, if we knew what it meant, but she was this way from the day that we got her. After her diagnosis, I administered SubQ fluids daily and special diet and medication. The treatment appeared successful, and for 3 weeks, my Whimsey was almost normal. Then, she took a turn for the worse. I gave her all the love and attention that I could, and she would look at me with a knowing smile, as if to say:"It took you long enough! This is how a Princess should be treated" On July 7, she totally collapsed. Her last act of courage was to come in the house because that's what I asked of her. I gathered her in my arms and took her to the vet. For the first time ever, she was quiet in the car. I held her in my arms, she was too weak to lift her head. I knew she was in great pain. I held her in my arms, and led her to the Rainbow Bridge. My heart has a huge hole in it, but I had to let her go. I miss her so....

Bath Day!!! Yucko

Doesn't mama know the Wolf Girls don't NEED baths!! We are wild and untameable. What was she thinking. I knew that I was in trouble when she did the old man dog. He was quiet this time and mama didn't have to yell at him. Sometimes he's REALLY BAD!!! He gets scared and shivers and shakes and wheezes...even when he was young he did that...big pussy...no insult to you cats.

Then she went and got pretty boy..he's my bud, but it made me mad cause I knew my time was coming so when he was done I jumped him. Then mama yelled at me...like the big dork who outweighs me over double can't take care of himself..he tricks her into thinking that I've hurt him but he's big and sneeky and he gave her a punch nip today. Then he got yelled at!! HA!!

Then she got me and I didn't want to go but that Mamas pretty clever and when I tried to sneak past her, she scruffed me like a puppy and took me in. After working with the big dogs, I'm pretty easy for her to haul around and once I'm in the tub, I'm doomed. Then, when she was done dousing and scrubbing, she put good smells on me {= . { But then she gave us treats and called me her pretty little girl. She and I are the only girls so we have a bond. Since she has conquered me, she must have some wolf in her...until next time we do battle. My wolf mama is truly a challenge....but I love her!!! And she loves me!!! This is sure lots better than at the shelter where they were trapping us, and later the pound while we waited for them to make a decision if we were adoptable or not. Mama understands that and that sometimes I get confused about whether I'm wild or not. Dad doesn't understand...when I want his attention I just jump the gate and go get him, then he gets mad and yells. I peed on the floor right in front of him and that made him really mad...doesn't he understand that his job is to play with me and pay attention to me??? I guess sometimes he does, I'm the only one that he gives the treatball to (of course the other 2 are not smart enough to get the treats out)...life is pretty good now.

 

Wolf Girl

Everyone thinks I'm so perky and cute, but don't underestimate me: I am a WolfGirl and I can take on anything ( except Mom, she is more stubborn even than me so I usually give in) I'm a 42 pound dynamo and never run down...the energizer bunny has nothing on me. Ranger is my favorite playmate but he's kind of big and clumsy when it comes to speed and corners, cause I am very fast!!! But he's a sheep dog and once in a while cuts me off and nothing makes me madder than when he nips off a mouthful of my beautiful white fur. Then it's his turn to be sheep. The big dork can't even get far enough ahead of me to keep his tail out of my mouth, so I hang on just to let him know that I can!

Mom started going someplace all day and it makes me mad so sometimes I pee in the house now, to make her mad. But then she blocks our door and no matter how hard I Pound on it with my head, or jump on it with my feet, she calls me bad girl and I can't be with her until she's done cleaning up and it's dry. Now she goes out with me to pee and tells me what a good girl I am. I am almost too old for this baby stuff but it's ok for now, I like it when she calls me good girl or baby girl, even though I am a WolfGirl and everyone should know it!

Well, off to chew on Ranger's tail some more. Or maybe I can even harass 'old man dog' enough to chase me off. (That's what we call Sparkie, cause it's hard for him to move now) I never really try to bully him like I do Ranger, just mess with him enough to know that I love him too!! Wahoo, lets GO NOW!!!
