She was a funny little dog with a mind of her own but oh how she made me laugh when she wanted me to do what she wanted. Walking with our friends Chloe and Ziggy at Sandbanks Provincal Park.
Her "mom" had said because she was mature in age (13 years) she would only be able to walk for about 30 minutes at a time. "Do we really have to go that way?"
From that day on, every day for seven weeks we walked from 8 to 15 kms/day and Shenzi was always the first one out the door and always leading the way.
She was always the first one in the water(Lake Ontario).
She was simply amazing. If I chose to do a bike ride instead of walk she would be downright annoyed, dumping her water dish which I walked through in my stocking feet every time or she would ignore me until she got her walk which she inveritably did! She wormed her way into my heart with her determination and her antics. She was deaf (I think it was selective hearing), her ears smelled, she would bite if you picked her up the wrong way but she was loyal and oh so funny and she made me laugh everyday! As I was packing up after seven weeks she was determined she was going too!
