The seventh puppy, Jenna, reminded us as a puppy of an apple-head doll with her appealing, wrinkly
little face. She is a very sweet and friendly puppy, stoutly built, and a bit of a talker.
She's the darkest and reddest of the pups. She went to live with our vet, Dr. Andrea
Lenhard of Jackson Square Animal Clinic, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. We are happy
that she is living close by. We haven't seen her often, and Andy isn't great about taking pictures,
but we do hear "Jenna tales" every time we go in to the vet's.
Her puppy name was Mint, because she wore the mint green collar.
Editor's Note 2011: Jenna's owner sent me these pictures of her in May 2011. I'm not sure when they were taken. Jenna
is still having a grand time at the lake and at home. She doesn't think that Andi should swim, though, and gets very nervous
when she paddles around in the lake. Jenna grabs her gently by the arm and tries to drag her to shore.... swimming is only
Editor's Note 2009: Jenna is still doing well and enjoying life as a vet's pet. She spends every weekend at the lake and goes to
the vet clinic occasionally, where she donates blood from time to time for other injured or ill dogs. Andi is not a picture taker,
and my visits to the vet haven't coincided with Jenna's days there and a camera all at the same time -- one of these days! She did have an
interesting summer of 2008, where Andi decided to do a body trim with lots of swirls and curlicues all along her sides. It was a very
strange cut, and Andi was horrifed when it took so long to grow back out. She won't do that again this year!
News from Andi Lenhard, August 5, 2006
Jenna lives with us and 2 other dogs -- Camille the old and wonderfully mannerly Golden, and Pip the little terror dog.
Jenna is supposed to be learning manners from Camille and I guess she is -- mostly! The three dogs play outside all day,
if they don't come in to the clinic with me, and love to get completely filthy. Jenna was nervous about going into the
water for a long time, which grieved me because we spend most weekends up at our place on the lake, but just this summer
she has started jumping from the shore and swimming out to where I'm kayaking. She can get on top of the kayak, which
is interesting since she weighs 60 pounds and it's not all that big a kayak! She's a lot of fun, a pretty bright red, and
looks just exactly like Hilfy -- beautiful!
