An update on the sweet Venus, also known as Nessie...
Venus is doing fantastic! She gets along with anyone and everything. Rarely barks, always giving kisses. The boys adore her (both the young boys and the old one (my husband)). Mhina and Venus are best friends – they have their sisterly squabbles from time to time but they are forgotten very quickly.
Venus is eating very well. We are still using up the 40 pound bag of Science Diet for Sensitive Stomachs but are cutting it with the Grain-Free Kirkland dry food that we normally feed. Venus eats right away and usually tries to help Mhina finish her food. As a result, Mhina has started eating faster.
The only problem (which is not really a problem) is that Venus wasn’t 100% housebroken like we thought she was but we are working on it. We did try to crate train her but she is deathly afraid of the crate. I would have thought she was kept in a crate at the vet so she’d be used to it. Her accidents are few and far between now so I think we’re almost there.
Venus is such a honey. As with all my rescues, I can’t imagine anyone giving up or abusing these animals. They are just perfect in every way. Venus’ eyes. I could look into them all day. They are the kindest, most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. Besides the gorgeous color (light caramel), they are so gentle and loving. It’s like you’re looking into her soul when you look into her eyes. Just breathtaking. But everyone who meets Venus falls instantly in love with her.
She does so many things that Denver did. It’s like he’s still here with us. I miss him so terribly much but Venus (and Mhina) have helped me so much.
