We almost weren't able to get her yesterday because of road closings but my perseverance was successful! And here she is, Jolie's sister, Jenna!
Not a very good picture, but the only one i have at the moment:
And this was yesterday, right after we picked Jenna up. This pic is actually for the person who told me she grew up in Stephenville but i can't remember who it was!
Jenna is horribly thin. I'm so glad i was able to get her. Her coat is really slick and healthy looking though. I think she just needs some extra vittles.
She is VERY shy and timid and so unsure of herself but she did run around and play with Jolie this morning. She seems content and that makes me happy.
You know, i think Jolie realizes Jenna is kin to her. She has acted most different with her, it's hard to explain. Boomer was very ugly last night when we got home with Jenna. I thought i was going to have to fuss at him but he finally settled down this morning. I put her in the only crate i have left and went to bed. Ronnie and i were soooo tired. The 7 hours trip turned into almost 12 hours. We headed out around 10:30am. Things went well until we were nearly to Fort Worth and we ran into a traffic jam. Traffic was stopped for as far as the eye could see. My car was starting to over heat and i was freaking out over that. We had to turn off the air conditioner and even that didn't help. My car still was getting so HOT and we were burning up as well because it was 92F according to my car thermostat. After 30-40 minutes we finally illegally cut across the median and headed the other way. Ronnie was all for going back home and trying again today but i was whining big time that there HAD to be another route we could take to Stephenville. I called the breeder and she agreed that there was probably no other way. I insisted that we get a Texas map so we drove dang near back to Denton to a truck stop and bought a map. Ronnie looked at it and said "Nope, no other way". (He wasn't actually that nice because by now he was cranky and so was i for that matter
) I looked at the map and told him i thought we could get on 114 to 51 to 377 to 281 and still get there. So we did. We got there @4pm.
This time we saw the kennels where she keeps her dogs and they (the kennels) were actually pretty nice. She had the most adorable little long haired chi you ever saw in your life! Ronnie talked to her for an hour on kennels and breeding and she was very very nice and cordial. She gave us a lot of information on breeding, supplies and shipping. Anyway, we finally headed back home and got home almost 12 hours after we left. Whew! I am so glad to have my new baby home!
Here's another couple of pics i just now took:
