We were recently known as just numbers…. 212 and 213. But now that we are out of the mill, we have actual names: Jane and Elizabeth Bennett.
We were named after two women in the novel, “Pride and Prejudice.” We haven’t read the book, but we hear the characters were beautiful and fabulous. We are sisters and we are scared to death. The grass under our feet is new to us, and please don’t ask us to walk on a leash. We saw a lady with a leash and we ran like lighting to hide from her. The only place we felt safe was backed up to a tree with a water hose around us.
We are 6 months old and we might act a little wild right now, but we are so excited to never have to have babies. We promise we are going to calm down soon. We have some urine burn on or stomachs and lady parts due to the extended time we had to spend sitting in our crates, but we are already with Dr. Larsen getting that fixed. We are anxious to be a part of a family – a family that will love and take care of us. They’ll need to understand that everything is new to us and we’ll need their patience as we learn.
I am Elizabeth and I have some brindle on my face. My sister is Jane and her face is white. I am a little bigger and more outgoing, while Jane is smaller and really shy. Don’t let Jane loose yet because she can run like the wind! Jane is afraid of everything right now. But we have found rescue and we are loving what we have found. Love, Elizabeth and Jane
7/18/19 Update: Jane is the sweetest puppy you could ever imagine with a little naughty streak. She LOVES shoes or anything else she thinks you might not want her have. She grabs it and runs off with it as quick as she can. It’s actually really cute and she gives it up as soon as she is caught. Shes loves to play with her sister or any of the other dogs that will play with her. She also loves attention and will jump on you legs or rub up against you to get you to love on her. She has the sweetest eyes that just make me melt.
After spending a week or so in her foster home, we have discovered something else about Jane and just how special of a girl she is. We (her foster family and Dr. Larsen) believe that Jane has a mild form of spina bifida. What this means for her is that she is fecal and urinary incontinent. She simply can’t feel that she needs to go to the bathroom or that she is going. She was born this way, so she doesnt know that there is anything different about her from any other puppy, including her sister. It does not appear to cause her any discomfort, as long as she is properly cared for and cleaned up as needed. Being a mild case, she does have feeling in her legs and can walk and run!
We have started diapering her when she is loose in the house and she is slowly getting used to it. We are currently in search of some more adorabull girly diaper covers and suspenders or clips because a girl as cute as Jane has to be fashionable!
This week, we changed Jane’s diet to raw. The reason and thought behind this is to try to reduce the amount of waste she produces and also the mess of that waste. Less waste means less mess and more time playing instead of cleaning. Did I mention that Jane loves to play? A diaper does not slow her down.
We are actively in search of wonderful family that understands who Jane is and has the ability to care for her needs. She is a wonderful girl that deserves an amazing home where she can thrive.
7/30/19 Update: Foster girl Jane would like to thank two very special supporters, Gina and Monica, for their generous gifts! Gina sent a huge box of diapers and two diaper covers in memory of her beloved spina bifida boy, Vito, who passed away last year. Monica sent two heart-themed parties. She is affiliated with Canine Spina Bifida Warrior, a website with tons of great spina bifida info: https://
8/10/19 Update: I decided to not be selfish and share the cutest baby girl in the world with all of you! Her favorite things are kisses, snuggles, toys and things to chew. You can snuggle and kiss her yourself if you come to tonight’s event! She hopes the fashion runway will be lined with chews and toys.
8/9/21 Update: Jane is continuing to do great in foster home. She is still a petite girl that loves to observe and only lets her foster family see the quirky and funny side of her personality. Jane had her annual checkup a few weeks ago and got another great report. She weighed in at 32 pounds which is a good weight for her. Jane eats a raw diet and it is working great for her. With her having Spina Bifida and being fully incontinent the raw diet gives her the best digestive option. She also continues to wear diapers and always will but it’s all she’s ever known and they don’t bother her one bit. She is comple use to them and diaper changes are quick and easy! We had a little gathering this weekend for my son’s soccer team and Jane wasn’t sure what to think. Jane is quiet and can be shy. We call her the observer. She likes to get in a spot and observe. One of the boys was drawn to her and spent quite a bit of time just sitting with her and loving on her. She loved it. Being the life of the party isn’t for Jane but she loves one-on-one attention.
