Our teenagers are a lot of fun!
By Megan Gabel
Like human teenagers, adolescent dogs have their charms, innocence, insecurities, and light-heartedness. Nine-month old Teddi really looks forward to being with people. She is sweet, gentle, playful, affectionate, and loves to cuddle. Lately, she’s become afraid of the cars zipping by outside when we take her for a walk. So, we quickly scoot past the traffic area and take her to a field where she can walk without fear and we can find a place to sit and give her some one-on-one attention.
Miny, about seven months old, is the only one of her siblings (Eeny, Meeny, and Moe) who hasn’t been adopted yet. She is wonderful! A gangly, loping, sweetheart, she loves playing in water, emerging dripping wet with, yes, a smile on her face! She’s enthusiastic, energetic, and wants to crawl in your lap for some hugs.
Boo, a beautiful, medium-sized, black Lab mix, is a little over a year old. She gets along well with the other dogs and is very playful, but, lately, she’s been a little afraid of some, not all, strangers. After she gets to know you, she’s very happy to see you and excited about going for a walk. She’s a sweet girl, full of kisses once she deems you worthy to receive them.
Also just over a year old, Sparkle is small, muscular, and very alert, quick to pick up on the sights and sounds around her. She’s eager to go out for a walk, friendly, and affectionate, soaking up the attention she loves getting. Her little tail never stops wagging.
