. . . to getting a playmate for Zena. We just sense she would really enjoy the company ... with the right match. This afternoon, I saw cute pictures of a Wheaten at a local shelter, and ended up going to see him. He was described as loving walks, car rides, the water, and toys. And about 3-4 years old.  He had been at the shelter since June. He has only gotten along with one other dog there (that is, no aggression, but totally ignored each other). And he had a history of biting. Of course I didn't find any of that out until the meet and greet. He growled at Zena three times, and I was so proud of our girl for being so good, just standing there calmly on leash. There was no real chemistry between the Wheaten and us humans, either He seemed neither happy or excited to see us. Long story short, not a match. I was a little disappointed, but not crushed.

Meanwhile, two of my TC friends are on the lookout for a Westie for us. One has come up with a 2-year old male, who looks really cute. One problem is that he has some kind of medical problem that they are investigating. Apparently he is eating well but not gaining weight. So we need to wait and see what they find out and go from there. At this point, I don't feel prepared to deal with a major medical priblem, but it's too soon to decide anything yet.

So, we are just going to be patient and see how it works out for him and for us. Just thought I'd update you. It would please me greatly to have another Westie in my life to live and I'm pretty sure Roo would approve. But it's also important for Zena to approve, too. She is such a good girl and I am so proud of her and her good behavior today.

Cheryl that would be great, but like you say, it would have to be a good match. We all know how strong willed terriers can be! We've never had more than one dog at a time so I'm so help, but there are plenty of members here who can guide you as to what to look for. Good luck in your search!
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

I just checked Vote for this post Reply to this Message Reply with a quote

with our landlord and she is ok with a playmate for Zena, as long as it's a small dog...which is fine.

Also contacted someone I had talked to last winter at Col. Potter. I really have nothing to lose by trying again, right?
