Introducing Jenni


By pip_c


Hello. My name is Jenni.

I live with Pip at her house in Sydney. I enjoy gardening with my Mum – who is also Pip’s Mum :o) Today we are digging up all the nasty kikuyu and replacing it with mulch:

I have a sister; her name is Frances. Here she is. She is great friends with Raffles, another GoY hound I believe :o)

I just love… being cute! Am I not just soooo adorable?

I am always on the alert…

I am a healthy happy canine… I believe in a healthy diet… Yum, curl grubs!

(Slurp… that tasted good!)

I work out daily – streeeeeetch those aching muscles!

I know lots of tricks too. Here I am shaking hands:

Pip once wrote a haiku about me, and this is how it goes:
Little Jenni girl,
Lost dog rescued from the pound,
With soft hazel eyes.

Here they are again: those soft hazel eyes!

Lovely blog and pics Pip. Like Pam, I'd like to know what Kikuyu is too :o)))

3 Aug, 2010


Kikuyu is a pernicious weed mistakenly planted as lawn grass in many tropical parts of the world--like bermudagrass is here! Lovely dogs, Pip!

Thankyou Tugbrethil. Never heard that word before. :o)))

3 Aug, 2010


sweet dog! Rescued dogs are the best, aren't they?

3 Aug, 2010


Thank you Ladybug, Elsiemay, Mavis, Holly, Sandra... they are quite horrible those grubs, usually they hang around in pots but we find plenty whille digging the lawn.
Thanks Pam and Linda... kikuyu is, as Tugbrethil has already said, a grass. It is actually a grass around these parts! It's known for its hardy, hard-wearing properties [reading between the lines, that means 'impossible to get rid of'].
I have heard of Animal, Vegetable, Mineral Pam, although I am a bit young to have seen/heard it...
Thanks Lauram, rescued dogs are indeed the best! Why would anyone buy
from a pet shop window?

And thanks also to Tugbrethil, who I just forgot to thank...

Hello Jenni! Beautiful happy girl now with your friend Frances......what a perfect life you have now...:o)) PS Lottie sends her biggest lick.....

17 Aug, 2010


Is she new Pip? she's lovely:-) Are curl grubs vine weevil?

18 Aug, 2010


Thanks Lottie for the lick... Jenni sends you a lick back :o))
Thanks Ba! Jenni isn't actually new, we have had her since 2005, and Frances since June last year. Curl grubs do grow into something - can't think what :o)
