It’s official! Leina and Ava are home forever! March 23, 2009

Yep, you heard it here first! I have new cousins! Ava and Leina have found their forever homes!

This is Ava.

This is Ava.

Ava’s a little chunky monkey! She’ll eat and eat and eat and has figured out that treats from the hand are better than treats in the bowl! I agree! BOL

This is Leina.

This is Leina.

Leina’s a skinny mini! Actually, tho, she’s a little taller than Ava, but isn’t as food driven as Ava. She’s slowly learning that the hand with a treat is not going to hurt her.

Jill also found out that they’re not really sisters. Leina is closer to 18 months and Ava isn’t quite a year old yet. But Jill decided to give them the same birthday anyway: 2/28/2008 because that’s the day she decided she was going to officially adopt them. Jill and Mom just kinda split the difference and decided they were much closer to being a year old than the two+ years the rescue thought they were.

They’ve both learned how to bark now! it’s so cute, like little mice squeaks! And if Jill or Mom call them by name, they’re responding. Still not coming, per se, but they do turn to look at them or if in another part of the house or yard will run to see what they want and then run away again! But they don’t shiver and shake any more when Mom or Jill pick them up and hold them or just pet them as they pass by. And for some reason, they’ve decided that I am their best pal ever and try to get me to wrestle with them! They’re so little and I’m so big, I’m afraid I might hurt them. But I don’t mind, they’re so cute!
