Wonderful Wednesday: Hello, Miss Jolie

13 Jul

For Charles’ birthday (well, maybe more so to help Mom’s heart heal from the loss of so many furbabies over the last few months), a sweet matted soul named Jolie has come to live at the zoo. The minute she got here on Saturday (in the pouring rain, of course), she took over everyone’s heart (and Mini’s couch pillow). Noel is still a little suspect of the new ‘MOP’ in the house but otherwise, she just fit right in as if she had always been here.

I will tell you her story another day, but for now here are the main things we know:

  • They said she was a Yorkie mix but she definitely looks like Shih Tzu to me.
  • She is 6 years old according to the birth year they gave us, but they said 5, so we are not sure.
  • Her birthday is the same day as Nine’s was (Feb 14). Isn’t that a wild coincidence?
  • She is way over-weight (over 22 lbs and she should be more like 17 or less).
  • She is in desperate need of grooming (Sonya will cut it all off on Thursday).
  • They said she was housetrained but she does not have bathroom training as far as we can tell (it is like having a puppy all over again).
  • She has the sweetest personality and loves everyone and everything so far.

What a blessing!

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

      She is way overweight right now but has such a different body type than Charles. He, we believe, is a pomchi; she, some mix of Shih Tzu. She is like a tootsie roll with paws at the moment.

      Thank you. Jolie is a dream. At 6, she has a lot to learn because she was always in a kennel. We are so blessed.

    Jolie! Yay! Welcome home, sweet girl. You are a wonderful mop, full of possibilities and we’re sure you were selected and sent by some special friends across the bridge. And well done, Charles for welcoming your new family member. She is exactly where she needs to be. Congratulations and good luck.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake and Mom

      Thank you, C & G. We do think she is channeling Sofie today because she has found her voice 🙂
