Random Wednesday

Happy Middle of the Week!

Not much going on over here, so I thought I should introduce another member of my family. For shame that it's taken me so long! There's a reason why though....see?

Ahhh, there she is!!! Jenna!! She's our Border Collie mix we got a few years ago (my mind is mush, I'm not even sure how long we've lived here, it may be a bit longer).
She's naturally a herder, so to get her to sit still for a picture is ridiculously hard. My camera is no way fast enough. She's a cutie though, and loves being outdoors. I had wanted to get her a friend, but The Big Guy says he has enough people to take care of in this house. I think someday we will though....She needs something else to chase in the yard besides the kids!

He got her shaved and groomed this past summer (she will NOT sit still to be brushed out) and she looked so skinny! Now's she's back to her old self and all fluffy again! She loves the rain and it's hard to get her inside when there's a storm even. She barks at the gas meter man, but still lets him in the back yard. One day I had opened the back door to let her in and he just laughed and said, "she's okay". Some guard dog huh? LOL! Our other dog Petey (in Heaven now) wouldn't let anyone in the back, he'd eat em! Jenna reminds me a lot of him, (except in that way!)

She doesn't attack the cats when we let her in the house occasionally either. They just look at her and she just looks at them. It's like she knows they're off limits and part of our family. (She barks at Sugar, the neighbors cat). She's a darn good dog. But stinky.

Off to go get my little one from school. Where did the day go??
