Reston Pets of the Week: Cheyanne and Liffey

Becky's Pet Care

Meet dog siblings Cheyanne and Liffey, our Reston Pets of the Week. Here is what owner Jill has to say about them:

Cheyanne (13-year-old Cattledog mix) and Liffey (4-year-old Yellow Lab mix) are both rescues.

I’ve had Cheyanne for over 10 years now and she has been a loyal companion and nurtured me through many of life’s milestones.

As Cheyanne was getting older, I wanted to provide her with a companion and I knew my home was ready for another dog. Enter Liffey. About three years ago, Liffey was found living in the woods near the point of starvation. She had never been in a home or around people or even on a leash.

Liffey needed a lot of love, TLC and training.  Cheyanne is been a stellar role model and sister. She has played a pivotal role in Liffey’s transition from a skittish and timid dog to the wacky and silly girl that she is today. In turn, Liffey has given Cheyanne someone to boss around the house, which pleases her immensely.

These two provide me with endless joy, laughter and love. I truly believe that our pets come into our lives for a reason and I’m so grateful for all of the lessons these furry wonders have given me over the years.
