There are two other members of our household. Emily was age 12 when Jewel arrived. Jewel would wait in the window for the School Bus everyday so Em didn't have to walk into an empty house. They kind of grew up together.|
Sidney, now age 2 is a West Highland Terrier. He was a bit rambunctious as a puppy (aren't they all?) but has grown into a fine companion. He was also "trained" by his "Aunt" Jewel who showed him many of her little tricks to get treats as well as how to behave in the house while we're away. We can still see a bit of Jewel in the way he acts.
6/17/14 - Hard to believe it's been a year already. Sidney has basically taken over and made the house his own, but a couple of weeks ago we found one of Jewel's old collars and he got all excited. We still talk about all the good times we had with Jewel. This site has also been a big help. Thanks to all that have contacted us and continue to contact us.
