Linda has a Dachshund “Thumper” and I have a common garden variety cat “Jewely”

When our two pets met it was truly a love-hate relationship, with Jewely hissing and Thumper screaming and running to Linda for protection.

The two pets came into contact every day and even though Thumper is not feeling up to par these days every time Linda opens my bedroom door Thumper is right at her feet, so I feel, even though it took eight years, their love-hate relationship has turned to one of tolerance.

Then things changed for the animals and us.

Jason and Jennifer were forced to move to live with her mother. She had one dachshund and the kids had four dachshunds and a big watchdog, What to do with “Chewy”, the watchdog?

We have a small house and we each have a pet, but knowing Chewy was a watchdog, and we definitely didn’t need a watchdog, but also we knew she had an amazing disposition. We agreed to offer her a temporary home.

We keep Chewy in a kennel in Linda’s bedroom at night, Thumper always sleeps in Linda’s bedroom and Jewely stays in my room with the door closed.

One day before Christmas Sandy, Linda’s boss, invited Chewy to visit her at the office. Linda put antlers and a Santa hat on Chewy’s head, put her in the golf-cart, and she proudly rode to the office to visit Sandy.

Recently one afternoon I was sitting in my tilted back wheelchair watching television. I heard Chewy letting out a loud GRRR, than I heard her toes click over the kitchen floor. By this time I had my wheelchair down. I navigated to the kitchen just in time to see Chewy enter my bedroom. Fortunately, she listened when I hollered.

I think Jewely has learned to keep her paws to herself.

This story was hard to follow. Who were Jason and Jennifer and what is their relationship to Linda and the author or narrator? And where does the mother come in? Is Linda the mother?

Ditto to the previous commenter, also a missplaced comma or two. Needs a lot of work, keep practicing and maybe get someone to proofread for you before submitting.
