A beautiful sunny day and we took the twins out in the back yard to play with a toy.
The twins took their maiden adventure last week-end. ‘Twas a beautiful day and Jillian surprised us quite a bit by not being the cooperative little car rider we had hoped for. We made the trip and she made the trip and we’ll try for another adventure on another day, but holy smokes that girl can wail.
I’ll be posting more pictures from our trip, but here is a tease.
She ate kibble!
And, I still can’t tell them apart, but they have their own velvet collars and no longer wear their kennel collars as name tags.
Jillian wears Jilly bean green and Slinky wears Slinky dink pink. I can officially tell them apart when they are out on the acre.
All in all, Flocko was quite happy to see me home for the third day this week. (Me too Flocko).
Slinky is settling in better and better everyday. She likes her freshly cooked chicken or pork hand fed to her. I made the mistake of adding a tiche of kibble in hopes that she would add something to her whole meat diet.
Big mistake, she promptly turned her nose up at the food and wouldn’t even pick the meat out of it. Oh, and she doesn’t want to be served out of a stainless steel bowl either, she prefers a plate.
Jillian has taken to home life like she has always been here. She follows me around and doesn’t like being on the other side of the baby gate. She’s quite jealous of Slinky and all of her freshly cooked meat. She’s eating kibble.
I was slaving away at the computer when it got a little quiet and I thought I had better check on the girls.
They found cushions side-by-side to snuggle in on.
Sometimes the cushions get double-stacked, are extra soft and become the most coveted cushions in the house.
They both wanted the double.
“Oh please Jillian,” she asked so nicely.
I took today off for maternity leave. Miss Jillian and Miss Slinky needed a day to make themselves comfortable.
Welcome home Miss Jillian and Miss Slinky!
Note: They still have their kennel collars on with their names in big, bold print. Yes, that means I still can’t tell them apart on the fly.
They traveled nearly 3,200 miles to go from Florida to Oregon. This morning we drove out to Sandy to meet them. They happily hopped in the car and nestled in for the last hour of their journey.
And then they explored together. Without a doubt, these two belong together. Almost identical twins, I suspect they will take great pleasure in trying to trick us until we can quickly identify them. Definitely will need two different colored collars.
It took Slinky awhile before she really explored on her own, when Jillian ventured off without her, she hung by our sides soaking up all the ear scritches she could get. She’s a happy, happy girl, her tail wagged constantly. Her personality is more of the bookworm, kinda laid back. She looks and reminds me very much of her uncle, my Buddy.
And then there is Jillian! She’s our party girl. She was off and checking out the lay of the land right away. And when Danny and Joey met her, she was a tease, a sniff at a distance was all they were allowed and then it was back off boys. Tonight when it was time to nestle down on a cushion in front of the TV, she was the first one to go belly up, all fours pointing to sky. She was home.
