Joni and Gabi – 39/365

Joni has fans in real life too. Gabi and Brandon came to meet her and brought her this little toy, which, of course, she loved, and she loved Gabi. And Gabi loved Joni, as you can see. We had a lovely evening. Good friends and a border collie puppy. It doesn't get much better than that around here.

I'm catching up with my project – have taken the pictures but am slow in posting (slow in most things at the moment, lol!). I'll get there, though.

Joni – 9 weeks

One more, just because everyone needs a happy puppy picture sometimes and you can never have too many puppy pictures. Especially my friend +Loraine Slessor who didn't know we had a new Joni.

Happy Days are Here Again – introducing Joni

Joni 3 - Ellie Kennard 2014

Original Post: – 18/365

The house was just too empty. Now it is just SO full of bounce and happiness and joy! This new Joni came home with us on Saturday. She is (I’m sure I don’t have to tell you) absolutely perfect. (Border Collie, of course.)

I must relate a little story of how Joni 3 came to be ours. We were going to see her, not sure if she was coming home with us, for many different reasons. She is related to our last Joni, the one we lost in October. When we had finished looking at her, patting her and watching her play with her siblings, we stood and chatted with her breeder. The puppies settled into two heaps in their play area and fell asleep together. When it came time to make a decision and go home with or without her, Steven looked at her in the pile of sleeping puppies and asked “well, are you coming home with us then?”. She looked up, stood up alone, walked over to the edge of the play area and put her paws up on the top. No one else had moved. She chose us as much as we chose her. So of course she came home with us. Looking at her eyes, can you imagine turning her down? And now  I have a new photography assistant apprentice.
