   Leave a bone for Neenah

Neeners, Beans, Neener-Beaner, Hurricane Neenah, Beanah-Dean, No-Neenah-Off!

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog-dog rescue

cuddling, belly rubs, furniture olympics, swimming in the deep end of the pond, pouncing unsuspecting people

being alone, being outside after 10pm when she'd rather be inside on a soft bed playing with Baby Doll

Favorite Toy:
"Baby Doll" (gingerbread plushy shown in the photos), Paikea, other dogs, treats

Favorite Food:
Salmon!! marrow bones are good too. Solid Gold Wolf.

Favorite Walk:
anywhere at my side

Best Tricks:
learning Sit, Off, Kennel, and Settle in one day! She's a VERY fast learner! Dog gymnastics - she gets into some strange positions before laying down for belly rubs

Arrival Story:
We were fostering Neenah on behalf of Free Spirit Rescue of Ohio and were having trouble finding a forever home for her...until we realized that we already HAD found it and it was ours. She had bonded so well with us and with Paikea (also with Malkin, though she sometimes annoys him to the point where he hides from her, LoL). But she and Pai are inseparable. They love playing together, swimming laps in the pond together, and racing in the snow paired up in our sled team. We can't imagine life without our little "foster failure" who swept in like a hurricane and left us laughing.

When Neenah came to us, she had demodectic mange, malnutrition, and "nesting syndrome" as a result of being spayed while pregnant at the shelter. It took time to heal, and she still is extremely attached to Baby Doll (her plush gingerbread doll that she treated like it was her puppy). She's an intelligent, dominant girl who learns very quickly and is extremely affectionate. She actually acts as a very good guard dog (odd for any dog with so much Siberian Husky in them), and is always so proud of herself for doing a job well done in protecting us. She loves to be around people and will cuddle with you for hours on end. She's an easy dog to love and is skilled at playing up the Cuteness Factor. :) She's even learning to woo now, though she still speaks Wooglish like a second language.

Life Before Adoption

Last night was an adventure!

My foster moms took me to PetCo for the first time! I've heard lots about it from Malkin and Paikea, but this was the first time I got to see it for myself. It was great - I totally understand why my fostersibs love it so much (and why they were kinda upset that they didn't come with me). PetCo even has toys as soon as you get up to the store! They're called "automatic doors" and they love to play chase with you back and forth. For some reason, this got all the bipeds laughing; I dunno why. The people who work there wanted to give me treats but I didn't care about those...not when they wanted to pet me. I'll take chin scratches over biscuits any day!

After that,we went to another human house to visit. There were two short bipeds there. I've met some of the short bipeds before (foster moms called them "kids") but they made me nervous; the littlest one scared the poop outta me! But not these kids last night...they know how to approach dogs, even the one who wasn't much bigger than me. And they let me give them lots of kisses too! So me and the two kids all cuddled up in the back of the Jeep, and I loved it. Foster moms were so happy about this; they said that being good with kids is a big thing to help find a furever home.

In the meantime, I like this fostering thing a lot! Good food, bones just for me, a soft bed of my own, toys, other dogs to play with, humans to love me up and teach me stuff....way way WAY better than a shelter!
