Twelve Years ago today.....

 Kendra came to live at our house.
 She was a funny, furry little thing.
She ran wild in a pen with some Westie puppies and wasn't socialised.
She resisted any form of socialisation, and eventually won.  She does things the way she wants to, occasionally choosing to join in some activities, but preferring to stay and guard her home.  Over the years she has mellowed.
When she arrived someone said she looked like a bush pig!

Happy Gotcha Day, Kendra!

  7. Happy Gotcha Day, Kendra! Socialization is over-rated we say! Someone needs to stay home and guard the house.

  25. Oh Kendra ~ 12 years of Happy Gotcha Days. Don't tell Daisy or Bella, but I think my peep might like you the best. Maybe because you have Cushings like her last Scotty or maybe because she says old dogs know you better. Anyhow my peep is always happy to see you on the bloggie.
    Happy Gotcha Day Miss Kendra.
    Sweet William The Scot
