We knew it would happen--it was just a question of when.

Last Sunday, coincidentally on our first wedding anniversary, we went out to the SPCA. There, in the second to last kennel, was our new furbaby. My husband fell in love with her the second he saw her, and we filled out the application, and brought her home on Wednesday. They had no information on her, as she was dropped off in the "night deposit", but she loves us. She is not spayed however, and is in heat right now. She has an appointment with our vet to be spayed when her cycle is over. We're estimating she is 2 years old, and she was very well taken care of--clean ears, beautiful teeth, gorgeous coat, walks well on the leash, listens, and knows many commands. She had her first bath today, and just stood there and let us scrub her--I think she was glad to get any remaining "kennel smell" off of her. She saw our vet on Thursday, and was given an antibiotic for kennel cough--just in case--and a gel for her eyes--they were a little red, probably from allergies, and she is a saint to let us rub it in for her. She also wears a little diaper around, because she is bleeding a little still. She met the neighbor kids, and adores children. She hasn't once tried to get up on the bed or couch, and doesn't beg at the table. She takes treats nice, and was obviously crate trained.
Everyone is getting along great, amazingly, and even Mr. Snotty only gets a little upset if she comes over and I am petting him--so we just avoid that.

Enough with the talking, here she is:

Glad your back.
She is beautiful, I wonder why her owners
gave her up. She sounds like the perfect pet.
Their loss, is your gain, and now she has a wonderful home.

Congratulations on your 1st wedding anniverssary,
what a special gift you both gave eachother.
She is an absolute doll.

Oh my gosh!! She is absolutely awesome and sounds soooo precious! I wish you much happiness with your new little love! I am sure "Mr. Snotty" will relax in the days ahead. It's funny with my two. When I am petting Bella, Ripley tries to wiggle his way in between as if to say "hey, I'm here, notice me!" :)

Jada is stunning!
Congratulations on a wonderful new addition!
As always we're here for the trials and tribulations that come with introducing new doggies into the "pack." So far it sound like things are going very smoothly though! It's wonderful that she was so well cared for by her previous owners.

CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE PICTURES!!! :D :D :D

Thank you so much everyone!!!

Here's another pic, this time of all 4:
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid78/pb3d696891bae9b3a53ad909b4956b02e/fb27ab88.jpg

Can you tell I'm holding a treat (well, four) above them??

Everyone is doing well. She and Abbey are great playmates, and Riley loves her too--he has a tendency to hump her, but she's not spayed yet, so maybe he will calm down after she is. Kito just kinda ignores her--if she doesn't bother him, he could care less about her. As long as his mommy still loves him, that's all that matters to him!!

Adding a fourth dog really doesn't feel that different--a few more piles in the yard to clean up, and some rearranging of the bedding, and we're done. She hasn't grown accostomed to my routine yet, where after daddy goes to work, we all lay back down--she gets a little nervous when he isn't around, and just paces back and forth when he leaves.

I will take some more pictures of her today, playing outside, and post them later if you all would like to see them.

Ooooh congrats! What a cutie! :D

How do you pronouce the name? I assume it's Jodd-uh, but could it be Jay-duh? :)

dukedogsmom
09-08-2003, 08:14 PM
I'm so glad she has a good home now! How in the world can people just decide not to care and dump them like that? That angers me so much. But, at least she's not with them anymore. She's got someone that really loves her.:)

Pam
09-08-2003, 08:31 PM
Oh I love the picture of the four of them and I'm so glad everyone is settling in so nicely! Please, please - MORE PICTURES!!! :)

lovemyshiba
09-08-2003, 08:54 PM
cloverfdx--yes, Riley is neutered--I would be in big trouble if he weren't:eek: He just got the big snip last week--it was a condition for adopting Jada, and it needed to be done anyway.

Cincy's mom--I would love to make it to an Ohio PT meeting--it just happened that all of them fell on bad weekends this summer--I thought about the last one, but it was our anniversary--plus we wouldn't have found Jada if we had come!!

Wolfsoul, your second pronunciation is right. You know Will Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett? It's pronounced the same--but that's not where my husband got it. I call her J-girl all the time, or just Jade, but I always change the dogs' names!!

can't wait to meet her. I'm sure Spike will just love her. Can't say the same for Max. He will probably just ignore her.

It amazes me how someone could just abandon a dog that perfect....

Their loss, your gain!!! :D

Samantha Puppy

Beautiful dog! What is with stupid people abandoning these wonderful creatures? I feel horrible that my dog and her sister had to go through that, but insanely happy that Sam is now with me and Izzy is in a great home and they're spoiled rotten, just like a dog should be.

Samantha sends her best to Jada (great name, btw).
