Oh boy - Jenna is here until Friday! Jenna is this big, beautiful Australian cattle dog mix that belongs to our piano teacher (not my piano teacher, but the kids' former piano teacher). She's about 3 years old and has excellent manners. And she loves to play with me! We romped all over the yard today and it was a BLAST! We ran and chased and tumbled and rolled and tried to wear each other out. Mom said that was very good.
Then tonight 4th child helped Mom by walking Lexie and I on our double lead and Mom took Jenna's leash cuz Jenna is big and can pull really hard. I pull pretty hard, too, but I am, after all, only 19 pounds. Lexie doesn't help me pull, either. She usually pulls in the opposite direction, so my 19 pounds isn't even 19 pounds cuz she's working against me, as usual. If Lexie and I worked together, that would be like 34 pounds, but Jenna still weighs more than that. Since 4th child only weighs about 60 pounds himself, Mom was smart and held Jenna while 4th child held onto us. Mom weighs about 742 pounds, so she can handle Jenna.
But wait, it gets better.
We walked over to Ollie's house (beagle) and Oscar (rottweiler) was over there and we all romped around in Ollie's back yard, all five of us, and Oscar's mom brought this chicken slingshot toy that makes chickeny noises as it flies through the air and it was oodles and oodles of fun!
Oh, my Dog. I think this is gonna be an absolutely pawsome week!
