update on Bengie

Bengie is a SHE...oopsie...she seems to like the name so Bengie it is.Props to The Wiley Boy Cat Named Ginger

Starting to get the back story on her.She was one of over 50 dogs rescued from a farm where a guy just had them all in cages in the back yard where they had to be forcibly removed due to neglect.She is matted up pretty bad on the back and backside but nothing a grooming can't take care of.Wife has given her a bath but she still doesn't exactly smell like a rose

Tonight after work was my first chance to really interact with her.She seems amazingly well adjusted under the circumstances.She was in bed with the wife when I got home with Katie and Junior the CowGod so I introduced myself for a few then took her for a walk.She doesn't fight the leash but tries to walk me.Under the circumstances I wasn't going to argue the point with her and let her lead.Besides..I just did ten hours of hard labor so I aint arguing with her.

She blended right in with the other two food disposals and seems to have already figured out that outside only for bathroom is the rule.She seems to have self housetrained simply by walking with the other two for one evening.She seems smart as hell.

She is definitely a momma's girl.Junior is here with me as I'm typing,Katie is doing the whole wonder terrier thing acting crazy wherever....but Bengie made a beeline for the bed and Momma when I brought her in and has been there ever since.

Under the circumstances she seems like a pretty calm,well adjusted dog.

4. I just saw the earlier thread.

She is adorable! Little Miss Smarty Pants sounds like she is going to need something to keep her occupied. She might be a good candidate for agility training.

Thank you SO MUCH for taking her in! May good karma come back to you ten fold for your compassion!

6. Is she spayed?

You might want to check on that. The shelter that rescued her probably took care of that. And might want to get her wormed too.

7. She is SO cute!

Her name really does suit her I'm so happy for her and I'm glad she's fitting in so well with the 'pack'~ fun. I wanna another dog, a big one! but I've never had more than one dog at a time and I just don't know how I'd handle it or how Sophie would. Anyway, your newest family member is adorable! Enjoy her!
