Right now, Sheba just wants to be with mommy. She doesn't really understand what it means to be a puppy, so she sits in my lap most of the time.

Sheba does NOT like the brush, but considering the mats and tangles, I can totally understand. With gentle work and time, she will come to love being brushed out!

Favorite Toy:
A pink stuffed dog

Favorite Food:
LOL anything she can get her little teeth into!

Favorite Walk:
Wherever mommy goes

Best Tricks:
*laughs* she does a GREAT imitation of a dust mop!

Arrival Story:
Hello Dogster World!!! My name is Sheba and my new mommy is my FOURTH mommy!! I move around a lot for such a little least that's what my new mommy says! I have lived with 3 other mommies, but new mommy says that she will be my mommy forever and ever!! I don't really know what that means, but I hope it's a long time because I really like it here! I think her lap is the bestest place EVER! I can't wait to see what will happen next, because so far, each day has been more and more fun! New mommy says that I have to go to some place called a "groomer" soon. She says my hair is just awful and has a lot of tangles. I don't know what this place is, but mommy says that when I get home (and she PROMISED I would come back home!) that I will be more beautiful than ever! I can't wait!

Mommy has tried to straighten up my haircut a few times since she shaved me, and I must confess, I'm not on my best behavior. Mommy is being patient with me and just does little bits at a time, but she keeps wanting to do my FACE! I mean c'mon!!! She keeps telling me that I look "lopsided" because when she gets one side done, I refuse to sit still any long and so my face doesn't match. Maybe one of these days she'll get done with it! Maybe I'll even decide to sit still and let her! Mommy says that I am coming a long way and learning "how to be a dog." I don't know what she means by that, but it makes mommy smile, so I like it too! My fursister Dory likes to play a LOT. I'm not so sure I like playing with her, she's kind of....mommy says "high strung". But, sometimes I'll get down and shake a toy or two with her. My favorite game is "bounce-n-bark". That's when I hide in mommy's lap and when Dory tries to get my attention, I bounce up and down and bark at her, then I hide again and wait for Dory to bounce at me. Mommy says we look like "whack a mole" wannabes when we play this game. Don't know what it means, though. Mommy says a lot of things I don't understand, but I'm beginning to think that's just fine because mommy is awesome. I get to "go bye bye", "go potty outside" (better than "go potty in my bed cuz that's the only place to do it"), and "love mommy so much". Another favorite game of mine! It's turning out that being with new mommy is exactly what I never realized I always wanted. Yep, life is officially good....cept on grooming days!

Well, she did it. Mommy shaved me today. I didn't like it one little bit! She said it had to be done and that my hair was beyond salvation because of the tangles. She let me keep the hair on my tail and some of the hair on my face. But, she said that that needs more work too! Can you believe it! All my beautiful hair....I have to admit, I didn't behave myself very well at ALL and so my haircut is not as good as it should be, and my feet STILL aren't done...though mommy did get the hair from between my pads and now it feels oohhhhhh so good when I walk around! Maybe I won't be so bad next time she comes out with me with the clipper things because ya know what? I can SEE!!! All the stupid ole hair that was in my eyes is almost completely gone and now I can see my mommy, my people sisters AND my doggy sisters! I'm having fun getting to know everyone by sight and not just smell and sound!

Mommy took me to a place with lots of people today. She says I need to soc-i-lize...what's that mean? All I know was there were lots of people and almost all of them told me what a pretty girl I am, so I liked that part. I DID NOT like the other dogs and with all those feet around, I decided to just sit in mommy's lap and watch everyone. But, mommy went out in a pas-ture thing and of course I followed her, and when I got out there.....well, the kids were all running pulling on strings with these funny triangle things that were flying up behind them, and well....I started to chase them!! It felt sooo good!! Mommy says I am really fast and she was laughing and smiling at me telling me what a good girl I am. I really liked it!! I tell ya, it's been a long eventful day and now I am dozing off in mommy's lap (where else would I be?). I'm glad I came to live with mommy!
