She had her first grooming since her move to Missouri. I hired a woman who drives a mobile unit and does the transformation in the driveway. This week, she had to park in front of the house as there were other vehicles in the drive.
Jenny was at the door in a hour, looking like a little skinned rat! My sweet girl has been hiding under a huge fur ball and now she’s clipped almost bare. The top knot too short and her ear hair cut in half! Her beautiful, long, lovely ears! I wish I knew how to transfer photos from my iphone to wordpress, but, sigh, I haven’t learned that yet. I hope the top knot and ears will grow out again.
She’s still sweet and lovable and my best friend. She follows me everywhere I go. This minute, as I type these words, she’s snuggled up against me, sleeping.
It’s 7:00 P.M. Ken’s been gone since 3:00. I keep the TV on to drown out the silence. I have such a hard time being alone. I loved it when I worked three jobs and had family coming and going. Then, time alone was rare and precious. Now, I have entirely too much of it. The warmth of my loyal companion is relaxing and soothing. I’m so grateful she’s in my life.
Jenny Penny has been with us for two weeks now and she’s feeling at home. She’s stopped using the deck for a toilet; runs down the ramp and dances in the grass, as if to say, “Hello grass! I’ve missed you!” And she goes alone while I wait at the door. When she’s finished her job, she runs to the door, tail up, and jumps up onto me, expecting lavish praise, which, of course, she gets. When she’s excited, she spins and jumps and can hardly contain her joy. She’s my constant companion; follows me wherever I go. When I’m seated, she stays close by my side, or in my lap. She’s generous with kisses. What more could I want? I love this little sweetheart. She’s my angel, my savior. Life is good again.
will soon join our family. I’ve fallen in love with her already. She was five years old yesterday, retired by her breeder and will live in her forever after home with me. Her name is Audrey. I’ve bought her a new ortho comfy bed where she can curl up and dream happy dreams. My empty arms will soon be filled again.
Soon sweet Audrey will be on her way from Daisy Hill Poodles to my home. She’ll be 5 Monday. Younger than the ones I’ve lost. She’s gorgeous! And from what the breeder says–a very sweet girl. Hopefully, she’ll arrive next Friday. And then life will be good again. I still miss the little ones I’ve lost, and always will, but I also miss having a canine companion. And I’m ready now to welcome one into my home and into my heart. I pray I have what it takes to keep her well and happy for a long time. She’ll be my reason for getting up in the morning. I’m grateful to Linda for entrusting me with another of her sweet babies.
