Gallery 2: Sedona Rose
Our second wire fox terrier came home in March of 2005. She was 8 weeks old and her nose was mostly pink. She weighed only 3 lbs.

Our new puppy smelled terrible at first, because her owners were feeding her a dreadful dry food that was probably not very high quality. She initially had a strange habit of hiding pieces of her food: she'd come into the living room with a morsel in her mouth, climb onto a low shelf and deposit it among the books. Because she had been sharing her home with her mom and dad, one sibling, and a St. Bernard, we presumed she performed this ritual because she hadn't always been able to get her fair share to eat. She is very gentle, and not the Alpha dog.

As much as we loved our first dog Galena--which was a lot--Sedona has a sweeter disposition that makes her easier to love. She has next to none of those traits that make up the "typical terrier" high-strung nature. She'll hang out alone on the patio at night, quietly watching over her domain; she loves everyone and every animal she meets; adores the car; never growls, and barks only when she feels it's absolutely necessary. The trait we enjoy the most is her need to be near people. She's a true companion, following us from room to room during the day until she excuses herself to take her power nap. And at night, she snuggles on a pillow in between us.

To whatever Unseen Force prompted us to bring Sedona Rose into our lives, we are eternally grateful.

Freckle Face
Her nose had filled in by the time this shot was taken, except for one small
spot of pink.

Sweet Sedona
Her neck is not as long as a standard WFT's, and her
coat is softer, too.

The summer of 2008 meant surgery for Sedona, when
she had to have her dew claws removed.

A former student of Mike's taught Sedona to catch a ball, and she enjoys a good game each evening.

Right down the pike!
The squeakier the ball, the more fun it is!

Favorite Thing #3
Sitting on a makeshift "perch" in the family room, Sedona loves to watch the neighbors, human as well as canine.

Favorite Thing #2
Riding in the car: Sedona is so smart that she knows how to spell both
R-I-D-E and C-A-R. Really.

Of her many toys, without a doubt, it's Sedona's "ring" that gets her vote for #1 favorite thing.
