This is Jenny:
We adopted Jenny from the local SPCA when she was 8 weeks old. They told us her mother was a husky, but that she appeared to have black lab and shepherd in the mix. Well. . . we don't see much husky in her at all, but she certainly has the black lab thing nailed down! Jenny is now 2 years old, and like many labs, is still very much a puppy! She is a delightful dog -- she is happy, energetic, curious, gentle, and loving. She loves to play!
This is The Chicken:
This classic "rubber chicken" technically belongs to my 17-year-old son. It is part of his Arsenal of Fun (right alongside the clacking teeth, the whoopee cushion, and the battery-operated fart machine). If you look closely, you can see that The Chicken has been patched with yellow duct tape. The poor thing has been part of many exploits. . .
Jenny enjoys a special love-hate relationship with The Chicken. She is very curious about it. She wants to love it. Yet. . . it seems to be . . . ALIVE! One slight nudge from Jenny sends The Chicken into squawks and twitches that, frankly, freak Jenny out!
When Jenny does just dive right in and play with The Chicken, it provides great entertainment for the whole family! She sneaks up on it and pounces and "talks" endlessly to it.
Eventually, though, Jenny WINS! She overpowers The Chicken with her dog-ly prowess, streaking through the yard with her prize.
This is Victorious Jenny with her now-subdued Prize Chicken:
Until next time, oh Funky One!
