Arrival Story:
We found Juno on the Internet, and drove to another county (Green County, WI) to check her out. She wasn't at the pound that day, because she was at a meet-and-greet at a store. We looked at other dogs, but none captured our heart. We came back the next day and adopted her. We told the shelter workers that we had slept in the car overnight so we'd be the first ones to have a crack at her the next day. Actually, she had been at the pound for months, and no one had shown any interest in her. When we got her home, she was very shy and hung out in the corner of the living room for a couple of days. Once our other dog realized she wasn't going to go away, he started being mean to her, with constant shows of dominance. The joke's on him, though--after a few months, Juno gradually became more confident, and now she's the first one in or out of any door.

Juno and our other dog, Atlas, now get along very well. They used to play-fight every morning. It looked pretty nasty, but actually the dogs were carefully avoiding hurting each other. Now they've lost interest in play-fighting--or if they do play, it's while lying down! Juno loves to sniff, and to eat "invisible nothings" in the yard. We still haven't figured out what she's eating. Of course, roadkill, when available, is better than invisible nothings. Juno started having seizures in Sept 2004, and now takes 256 mg of phenobarbital daily. It has mellowed her out: she used to dislike certain other dogs (generally females), but now she is very accepting of all other dogs. This newfound mellowness hasn't prevented her from showing bursts of playfulness, throwing her toys in the air with her mouth and catching them. Update: Juno suffered from a sudden case of stomach torsion on April 9, 2008, and had to be put down. She may not have been the best-behaved dog in the world, but we loved her very much and will miss her. Rest in Peace, little Juno.
