Our newest family member, Tenley

I rarely post anything personal but this is a follow-up post for those of you who so kindly sent condolences after reading my July 2  post about having to say goodbye to our beloved dog Mika.

We have welcomed into our home another rescue. My daughter has named her Tenley. She is a "Chiwinnie" (a Chihuahua-Dachshund mix). She was only about 4 months old when we adopted her. Tenley fits into our home perfectly. She adores my daughter.  She is very smart and learns fast. She leaves Tawnie, our 17 year old blind and almost deaf miniature poodle, alone ... most of the time. And she has taught Watson, our 4 year old Manchester Terrier, how to play!!! No, he didn't know how to play with other dogs because we rescued him as a puppy and brought him into a house with two senior dogs. Now Tenley and Watson run and play all day and into the night. Here is a photo of them resting between their rough-housing.
