Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

Birthday:
May 10th 2003

Likes:
Camping, running through leaves, snow and especially puddles (the dirtier the better); jumping on the bed to check if her mom and dad are awake yet, wagging her tail, chasing squirrels

Pet-Peeves:
Smelling clean, when squirrels have the nerve to sit on the ground while she is stuck on her leash, loud evil noises, being home alone, getting eardrops

Favorite Toy:
Her brother Logan, empty pop bottles stealthfully taken from the coffee table, squeaky toys that need to be "cured" of their squeakers

Favorite Food:
Any food her sister Cloe, the parrot, drops (even the food she won't eat when we give it to her)

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere in Medicine Bow National Forest, WY; places with puddles (yippie, puddles!!)

Best Tricks:
Crawl, wave, running through tunnels and looking sad and pathetic to get attention.

Arrival Story:
We finally bought the house with a fenced in back yard, all we needed was to find the dog that belonged in it. We looked on Petfinder.com and found Etta at a nearby rescue (Second Chance Dobes). We sent in our application and were off to see her the next day. We didn't dream that we would take her home that day...until we met her. She was perfect for us and we fell in love right away. There was no way we would have left without her.

Bio:
I love my mommy and daddy very much. A lot. Sometimes they say too much, but how's that possible? I really love them in the morning, except when they sleep in. What's that all about? I don't like loud noises, but it's not as bad when mommy and daddy are there to tell me it's ok. They're cool like that. I might actually love my brother, Logan, even more. Logan thinks he's fast, but that's just when I'm being nice. When I try, I can smoke him, but I don't want him to feel bad. He's fun to chase and knock around. He takes it like a champ. Lots of love, that's what I'm all about. Except for people or dogs that I can't get to. Oh, I love them too, but need to let them know by barking. When my mommy or daddy tells me not to bark, I make lots of other funny huffing and whining noises instead. It takes a lot of breath to huff properly. Not everyone can do it as good as I can. When I can get to them to show them how much I love them, I like to wag my tail. A lot. My butt wags with it, and I have trouble standing, and sometimes drinks spill on the floor. That's not a problem, that's a bonus. Drinks taste good.

Forums Motto:
You're awake, right? How about now? Now?
