Quick Bio:

June 22nd 2008

Her mommy! She's definitely a "mama's girl." But she loves to get into any kind of mischief and she loves any kind of food or non-food she can get her little mouth on!

Being told "no"...not just in a reprimand, but simply, "no, you can't jump on my lap right now" or "no, you can't have the empty toilet paper tube"...

Favorite Toy:
Anything she can chew and chew and chew. She was a pitbull in her past life and needs to constantly work her jaws. :)

Favorite Food:
All food is a favorite!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere with her mommy...and on the right side of her brother (he prefers the left side, she prefers the right!)

Best Tricks:
Getting her way.

Arrival Story:
I was unemployed and already had one Papillon (D'Artagnan)...I had always thought if I got a female it would be a red sable. One day, when NOT looking to get a new dog, I was looking at puppies on and saw Vivienne. I immediately knew she was the one. When I looked to see her age, I was excited to see her birthday was 6/22...almost exactly 6 months from mine on 12/24. When I looked to see who her breeder was, ironically it was the same one who I had gotten my other Pap from. After an email to find out if this little girl was available, I was happy to find out that 1) the breeder remembered me from earlier that year, 2) the puppy was still available, and 3) SHE HAD THE SAME PARENTS as the male I already had who, at the time, had just turned a year old (they were from different litters obviously!) Needless to say, Vivienne became part of our family.

Vivienne joined the family October 11, 2008. It was just 10 days after her brother D'Artagnan's first birthday. When we were on our 2 hour journey to meet her and see if she would fit our personalities, I told him we were on our way to get his birthday present!!! What a surprise for as we knew it changed drastically that day with such a vivacious little diva in the house!

Forums Motto:
"I was born entitled." She is a DIVA.

My very first diary! How exciting! Finally a place to voice all my opinions and views on life around me! Currently I live with my wonderful Mommy that just thinks I'm cute...which can be handy sometimes, but can be annoying when I'm NOT trying to be cute! And my older brother that does whatever I want him to do. Everyone says how smart he is, but c'mon, if he's THAT smart, then why does he jump off the bed to get my rawhide for me when I drop it over the side and just stare at it? Then again, that's better than if he made me get it myself! At least he knows his place! :)

So...I am a nocturnal dog...after all, divas, celebrities, high society...we all live for the night life, don't we? I'm lucky enough to have a Mommy that is just as nocturnal! My poor brother gets pretty tired looking around this time of night...but he's sooooo clingy that he won't go to bed by himself! But I don't feel THAT sorry for him because when Mommy and I keep hitting the "snooze" button in the morning (after our late nights doing whatever...) Brother D is bouncing all over the bed. HE'S a morning dog! Ugh!

Anyway, something is going on with my mommy tonight. She hasn't had any time for me until she decided to torture me with a brush! Hey I may be a diva but it doesn't mean I like other people messing with my look! She's been busy with something she called a "suitcase" and piles of clothes all over the bed. She wasn't too happy either when I decided one of the piles was a nice comfy place to lean and chew a cow hoof! what is she doing? Uh-oh I have to go now...I have to go hide! I just saw her get stuff together to give one of us a bath! It better be my brother D'Artagnan! What is she thinking??? Doesn't she realize no respectable dog gets a bath after midnight??? This is just scandalous! What a horrible interruption for my first diary entry!!!
