Jay’s other best friend: Sheevah

Jay has always had an older sister. Well, more like an old grandmother. We have had Sheevah for about 8 years now, and we are guessing she is somewhere around 16 years old. She has always been a bit sassy and shy around new people, so bringing a puppy into the family was a bit of a leap. For the first few days, Sheevah basically just hissed day and night while pawing at Jay’s little head with her clawless paws. Just as we expected, she wasn’t very happy with our new family member. One day, I found them sitting next to each other. Ever since then, we would occasionally catch them snuggling up with each other or even cleaning each other.

Meet Baby Jay!

Welcome home, Jay! At two months old, we rescued him from an old lady who wasn’t able to take care of him anymore. Little did we know, we actually brought him home with ticks… but after a visit to the vets and some baths, he was all good! His original name was Jerry Dog, or JD for short. Funny thing is, my dad’s initials are also JD! Since those names seemed a bit long, we decided on Jay.

First day home, he fell asleep on my ankle after running around the grass for a couple minutes. On his ride back home, he whined like a dolphin until he was cuddled. I have never had a dog before, so I’m not really sure what I was expecting. At the time, all I knew was that I needed a pal, someone who would be there fore me no matter what. Jay was the perfect little guy. He filled the empty void that slowed me down the last couple years of high school. He opened my eyes to future possibilities, dreams that I had never dreamed.
