March 1st 1993
Running through the house like her tail is on fire
Don't you dare touch my tail, or else!
Fuzzy possum like the one outside, fuzzy wabbit like the one at my grandma's house
If it's in your hand, it's up for grabs...watch the fingers!!!
Along the man made lake near our house
She's too ADHD to learn any tricks!!!
I saw her photo on an animal rescue website (hppl.org) and I thought she might be part Alaskan Malamute and I have always loved those. Turns out she's a breed I had never heard of - a Finnish Lapphund. They originated in Finland and were used to herd reindeer (watch out Rudolph). She was found wandering near a drainage ditch near an office complex and a very kind woman managed to get her into the car and take her to this rescue site. And now she's mine!
It's been a long road since I adopted her. Once I got her home, she became very hostile and didn't want to be touched. Over the next few days I was afraid I had made a mistake in adopting her, until I saw a giant hot spot on her thigh - I had not been able to see it before, due to her very heavy coat. Once we got that all cleared up her personality changed drastically. It still took a while for her to become mama's girl, but now she's just as sweet as can be. All she ever wanted was someone to love her. I wish I knew about her past; I'm afraid she may have been abused. She was about 10 years old when I adopted her in March of 2003. She's an old gal, but you'd never know it. She has the energy of a puppy and loves to tear around the house and play with Chloe, my young cat. A match made in heaven! Update September 2006: I have lost my sweet Tina to inoperable cancer. I miss you my baby! I hope you find Casey at the Rainbow Bridge! (I lost them just 2 weeks apart).
TTTT Tina T!
