Jenny at 1 year
Jenny was the pick puppy from the first litter I
ever raised. She was a perfect dog-lover's dog: friendly,
fun loving, enthusiastic.
Jenny was a retrieving fool. She chased
balls, frizbees, and sticks with equal enthisiasm. Unlike
most Shelties, she would willingly go into water to retrieve,
and brought back balls from the Gulf of Mexico, and dragged
sodden roots from the bottom of mountain streams.
She was one of the dogs who accompanied us on
numerous hikes and backpacking trips in the Wyoming Mountains.
When we set up camp in the evening, she would collect sticks and
pile them at the door of the tent.
On one occasion, I was
throwing a stick for her at our campsite. Finally, in the
twilight, she couldn't find that stick. The next morning we let Jenny out of the tent,
and next thing we knew, Jenny was at the tent door, holding the
stick she had lost the night before.
