HI - We (Oliver, Janey and I) are looking forward to getting to know all these wonderful people and pups on this board. I am Kathryn (known as Nana to many). I belong to two wonderful furkids. Oliver is a white, 20 pound, poodleXbichon(maybe X malti). When we rescued him, they told us he was a poodle, but personally I believe he has more bichon traits. No matter, they are both fantastic breeds. Oliver has stolen my heart, as well as everyone else's. Even my daughter likes him and she is not usually fond of dogs. We believe he is about 5 yo.
Janey is our newest furbaby. She is probably 4 or 5. She also was supposed to be a "poodle". Although she is back/brown/patches of white, her fur seems more malti than poodle. She has some little quirks, but she is the sweetest, funniest little piece of fluff. She is about 10 pounds. She has gained a lot since she arrived here. Poor puppy was in really bad shape. We took her to the vet and (although we had been told she was spayed - she wasn't) had her spayed. Also had couple hundred dollars worth of dental work done. Poor little Janey. She was lucky enough to land in a house who would really love her and care for her, BUT she had to go through a lot of painful stuff before she even go to know us.
We all have bonded. Oliver and Janey always got along well together, but not anything special. They now seem to know they are family. Oliver was a quiet dog. Never barked, played ball, or anything. He would however bark at the hawk that sat on our telephone line. He likes to howl when the fire engines or police have their sirens going, and hubby encourages this. Glad we don't live in a city. Janey is our barker. Now that she knows this is her forever home, she barks when anyone comes to the door, or drives into the drive. She has taught this to Oliver so now they both bark, and he has taught her to howl, so we have a concert when the fire trucks go by. Fire season is about half over and it seems this year hasn't been as bad a many in the past. A couple of years ago we were evacuated.
So, Hi everyone. I told Oliver and Janey about this board, and we are glad to be here. Thanks for the invite.
