Kenya

Kenya

May 15, 2014

In 2011 my wife and I adopted Chance, a female German Shepard cross from THS. When we got her home we immediately introduced her to our other animals which included a couple of horses and about 200 chickens. I guess you could say it was a bit of a culture shock for her.

As her training progressed I found myself saying “Can you please stop licking my face?” or “Can you please go to sleep?” and over a few days the “Can you” began to sound more and more like Kenya which she started answering to, so I guess you can say she choose her new name. Over the past 3 years Kenya and I have had many adventures from trail rides to canoe trips and everything in between. She is gentle and loving to everyone and she has been known to pick up a kitten or chick around the farm and carry it around in her mouth, unharmed. The favourite part of our day is the nightly snuggle on the couch with Kenya on one side of me and my wife on the other.

Thanks for matching her with us.
