Ok, now getting back to Tinker, she is definitely a high maintenance dog! She is sneaky, conniving and drains us of most of our energy.
Tinker hides, lying in wait underneath blankets so that when you go by her she can attack you with the cunning grace of a wolf.
After the attack is over she needs to rest and regain her energy. It takes a lot out of her after she is done with her grueling attacks. Her favorite resting place is usually on one of her victims, she needs to make sure they know who is boss.
Ok, maybe not quite like a wolf, but the attacks are swift and vicious and if she was bigger I'm sure she would go for the throat.

Tinker also has a prissy side to her. She doesn't like to get her feet wet. So if it has rained she walks around on her front feet trying to keep as many feet dry as possible. I think if she knew how to hop on one leg, she would do that to keep as many dry as she can.
But snow, she loves the snow.

Tinker likes to sled ride, here she is with Peete.
Here is Tinker chasing Kristi.
We have to be careful when Tinker is out in the winter because if it is too cold her legs freeze up and she gets real stiff and needs to come in and get warm. So Kristi got her a jacket to wear if it is cold out.

Tinker also loves our grandson Hunter, she will cuddle with him every chance she can.

After a long day, Tinker loves to cuddle with Kristi when she takes a nap. After all she is her mommy.
So all in all, Tinker has wormed her way into our lives. She will never be a dog like Mindy, but she brings plenty of laughter and doggie love into our home once again. It is never boring with her around. When she goes home with Kristi and Hunter on Kristi's days off it is very quiet around our home and we look forward to her coming back to us.
