   Leave a bone for Vivienne

Pookie, My cutie-patootie, Viv

Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-dog rescue

February 14th 1994

Her bone-shaped doggie bed, when I sneak her a couple of small pieces of chicken from my plate, and the occasional treat.

No one is in the same room to take her go potty at the exact second she decides she needs to go, thus she barks at us; the humans being gone for more than a couple of hours, and the rare times when there's no petting going on.

Favorite Toy:
Her chew-rope, for sure! But she's a sophisticated dog that enjoys her matching dog-bone bed and the chaise. Yes, they really do match! She's worth it!

Favorite Food:
Chicken, Chicken, Chicken!!! I there anything ELSE? :) (Well, there are the SnickerPoodles from the Three Dog Bakery)

Favorite Walk:
To get the mail, cause it means she gets to fertilize quite a few different things along the way

Best Tricks:
Making the humans give her food when they've already said they won't give her any!

Arrival Story:
Vivienne was an owner abandon at an Austin, TX shelter. I don't understand why....she has all kinds of love in her heart. For whatever reason, she was turned in to the local animal shelter. There, she was rescued by a fantastic group called "Wee Rescue." They work with small dogs (small dogs = 'wee'). From there, we applied to be adopted by a dog, and then after a bit, Vivnenne became available, and that's now over 3 years ago. She's been an important part of the family ever since!

She's just not going to let the world stop her from doing what she wants and going where she wants. She's a little older now, and we're mindful of not letting her jump on & off the furniture as she did before. TRUST ME...she's not slowing down. Vivienne is full of spirit, and has been since she adopted this human. Recently, she had surgery to repair her hind kneecaps. Leaving her at the surgeon was really hard to do. Watching her recover was even harder. Now, here we are several months after her surgery and her recovery is fantastic. She is full of energy and has started bounding around the house like she did in the months before her knees started hurting. We are thrilled to have her feeling like her old/young self again. 1/17/06 - I am profoundly saddened to say that Vivienne is no longer with us. After a long battle against congestive heart failure, Vivienne's little heart finally needed to stop. We are crushed by her passing, but know that she's waiting for us so she can get a little piece of chicken from our hands when we meet again.
