Everything is going perfectly with Jenkins. We just had a vet check and he is in perfect health and weight. We have had him almost two years now and he absolutely loves his home and his girlfriend, Monkey. Jenkins (& Monkey) sleep with us every night (though they have several dog beds, the “big bed” is much more comfy!). Though he is really a daddy’s boy, one of his favorite things to do is to snuggle with mommy for a few minutes when I get up in the morning. His morning ritual also includes kissing Monkey all over her face and ears too. He didn’t really know how to “snuggle” when we got him but, we have turned him into a big love bug.
Jenkins and Monkey have full roam of the house but Jenks is always so full of energy. So it’s very lucky Daddy comes home at lunchtime every day and Jenkins gets to go outside midday to stretch his legs. He likes to watch the wildlife outside the window and sometimes gets to chase them which include bunnies, squirrels and birds, though thankfully he is not fast enough to catch one. Another favorite of Jenks’ is to chase the red laser beam around the yard at dusk. I swear this dog knows how to tell time as he reminds us when it’s time to go outside! With the warmer weather here, we keep a baby pool filled so Jenkins can cool off after a good run. He just jumps in and flops right down – so cute!
Jenkins is our first rescue and we have gotten so much love and entertainment from him. We love him to pieces and we know he adores us too. We have truly been blessed with Jenkins. My husband and I have agreed that we will always rescue from here on out as it has been such a fulfilling and heartwarming experience for both the canines and the humans in our family!!
