   Leave a bone for Maya (1/22/04 - 4/25/09)

Maya-Maya, Queen KaMayaMaya, Puppita, Cookie-Cookie Girl, California Cow, Chunky Monkey, and Chunka

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

January 22nd 2004

When mom is about to say no or reprimand me, I roll on my back (looking so cute), she forgets what she wanted to say no to. I love to hang out & swim with my best buds Norm, Tug, Ahja, Niko, Bree & Bakie, & the rest of my dog park peeps.

When it's time to take a bath or when I'm sick and need to take medicine (yuck)! Oh yeah, fireworks and other loud noise scare me!

Favorite Toy:
My new yoga ball, Mike's sneakers while he's still in them (tee hee). Mr. Panther, he's like my wubbie. I take him all over, suckle on his ear and fall asleep. He smells just right now, I hate when my mom thows him in the wash.

Favorite Food:
Meatballs from Antipasto's, mommy's toast in the morning. :op

Favorite Walk:
Walking - Eeew! BUT... 1st thing in the morning at our apartment complex, we see all the helium balloons left over from the day before (to attract tenants) - mommy lets me pounce & pop them! Wonder what my bark would sound like?

Best Tricks:
High-Five is a crowd pleaser and I usually get extra treats at Petco when I do it.

Arrival Story:
Mommy always wanted a bulldog but was worried about the expense, but after she graduated, I was her present to herself. I totally have her wrapped, she's not as strict with me as she was to the two boxers she used to own [probably because I flew into San Jose from Florida - 2 weeks too young and totally freaked out]. Mommy threatened to go kick the guy's butt for me if I wasn't feeling good or had issues from the loud plane ride [She's from NY, need I say more]. Of course, I'm fine and I "work it".

2-Year Plan: My mommy and I are kookie, zany (just check out my diary) and we love to laugh!! We would like to share all fun by my being a Therapy Dog - wish us luck. I've got to work on the toe/ankle biting-thing! [grumble, grumble.....]

I'm missing you so much! Who will I sing my Good Morning Song to? By the way, thanks for putting up with my singing, my cuddles and constant chatting with you.

You, little girl saved AND were my life! You're the personification of love and I would have done anything for you (except watch you suffer any more) – because it really was All About You!! I can't believe you passed so soon, I thought we would have more time together.

Everyone loved you and how pleased were they when you decided to acknowledge their presence & let you steal their seat at the park. You were my Queen KaMayaMaya, my little diva and princess. Thanks for riding shotgun with me and forcing me out of my shell to meet people – our time at the dog park or just walking local parks brought a smile to my face and everyone that you came upon. I would watch your lips peeled back in glee, too – even though you pretended you didn't want to walk at the park.

Thank you for being my little girl and in my life these 5 years - I will love you always.



My last diary entry (from planet earth)

My mommie is writing this since I'm in heaven now looking after her. I passed last Saturday, 4/25/09. It seems that I had a very fast acting form of leukemia.

Not only are bullies stoic, never hear a beep out of us if we're not feeling well, but with leukemia it only shows up if something else happened to come along. I caught a UTI and doctor's kept an eye on me becuase some of my blood numbers were not coming down.

I have to say the night before I passed, mommie took me to the dog park (we hadn't been there in 3-4 weeks due to my health) and mommie and I got lots of hugs, luv and support from our friends we would see there rain or shine for the past 4 years.

I perked up when I saw Auntie Mei Ling and I tried to jump all over her, and I only do it to her. She came up on a fluke since she only had 20 minutes to run up there. Wow we were all glad she did. It was such a wonderful memory for mommie and me to keep.

Now that I am an angel (although momie and friends always called me one), well now that I'm an angel, I'll be looking over all of you giving you love and support from above.



I got's tagged...

I was tagged by my friends Izzy & Bob while my mom was on vacation! Because my typing skills are not my strong point -- I had to wait 'til she got back! :0p Thanks Izzy & Bob for letting me plag tag with you both!

The rules of the game are as follows:

Each player will list 7 random facts about him/herself. Dogs who are tagged need to post in their diary The Rules and their 7 Pawsome Facts. They then choose 7 other dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they’ve been tagged and to read your diary for the info!
7 Pawsome Facts

1) I belive I am a human - I just happen to like to walk on all fours.

2) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERYONE -- especially little children -- I'm so gentle too!

3) Can anyone say DIVA?!? It IS all about me!

4) My favorite thing to do is to sit on my mommy's bed and look out the window to see what is going on in the apartment complex. Mommy moved the bed just so I can see out (did I say it was all about me, I wasn't kidding)

5) Switcheroo - I rather hang out with people at the dog park, mommy plays with all the doggies! It's a nice arrangement

6) I suck on Mr. Pather (stuffed animal) like a pacifier - he's my wubbie.

7) People know when I really like them, because I go after their toes and ankles when they try to walk. Some people at the dog park are disappointed I don't do it, mom is grateful. They scream with glee when I decide they are my favorite until I take a chop on their toe (ha ha ha) but they still think it's cute. My one friend Mike pretends he's in Riverdance they way I go after his toes/ankles.
