Nicknames: Dogzilla/ "The Precious!"(The ONE Dog!)/No!No! BAD dog! /Pheeble Weeble/Pheeb's/ Pheebers/Barnacle Phoebe the sailor
Birthday: July 21st 2005
Likes: Her mom coming home. After that I'd say she loves to chase and chew her stash of empty flower pots! She'll toss tennis balls and drag palm fronds all over the yard. Now she has discovered the *Doggie Park* and has some terrific new friends! (see pictures
Pet-Peeves: Not being allowed on certain rides out at Disneyland and having to wait for me to come back. : )
Favorite Toy: At the moment her favorite is empty plastic plant containers. The LARGE size.
Favorite Food: Any type opf Doggie BACON and Manderan Oranges of all things! She'll devour ANY kind of fruit.
Favorite Walk: Along any beach.. and all around Disneyland CA. Not so thrilled with the tram ride though.
Best Tricks: I'd say going 10 hours without a potty break when out at Disneyland is . a nt. eat trick. Even when she's offered the chance to go she often will not. She must have the kidneys of a Rhino!
Arrival Story: Well, I lost my beloved 13 year old German Shepherd in February of 2005. We all know there is no healing from that. I decided to take a look at a litter a friend would be having in Feb of 2006. If my heart spoke then I'd know it was time. Friends and people that cared about me decided what I needed was another Soul to take care of much sooner then that. Not a good idea to let folks back you into a corner on this. This lovely breeder DID write me out of the blue and tell me that they had an unexpected littler and it would be coming in July. Long tale short... they were born on the full moon in July and there was only this one little girl who was the only black and tan. My heart and head still said no. With prodding and tons of pictures sent via email, I caved to cuteness and agreed to take her. She came home on September 17th, also a full Moon (I sensed a pattern here...) and the first week was sad and difficult. Now I can't imagine the house without her and we are still leaning from one another. She's and old, old Soul in that growing body and it's scary to have a puppy that is smarter then YOU are! :)
Bio: This dog is the ultimate *Ghost magnet*. Since she showed up we've had all sorts of going's on! Her energies and vibrations are high and I guess it attracts things *passing through* More reports to come!
Most miraculous, is that Phoebe has also evolved not only into my very best friend but also into my Mobility Service dog as well. Her 112lb frame makes giving me that extra tug to get me up or help me up a ramp or hill easy for her and a Blessing for me. We make regular trips out to Disneyland CA and she has become quite the attraction herself when she takes to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride! Her easy manner and calm ways made her a natural for Service and it was something she started to do in on her own. I have severe heart problems and when I struggled to get up or walk I noticed that she began to stand rigid until I was up, allowing me to use her for balance. She pulled against her lead to help me up walkways. So a friend suggested I see if she could be put through the service dog program which she passed with flying colors, receiving her certification in short order. I was so proud. And I feel SO Loved by this remarkable animal.
How lucky am I?
