Quick Bio:

Playing fetch with anything

Seeing brother Benny getting attention; having her wet paws wiped off

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:

Arrival Story:
My husband and I had bought our first house and he really wanted a dog, so I reluctantly agreed to grant his wish, even though I was a self-proclaimed "cat person". It's not that I disliked dogs; I just hadn't spent any quality time with any. He brought home this adorable, big-headed puppy during the summer while I was on break, and we bonded right away. She spent most of her time sleeping on my lap or wanting to play fetch or tug, and actually became more my dog than his. Needless to say, she made me a "dog person" pretty much with one look into her grinning face and sincere, brown eyes.

Forums Motto:
If you throw it, I will fetch

So after a a certain someone took me on a rollercoaster ride full of ups and downs I've decided that romance and being in love just isn't worth the hassle! Especially if that person is high maintenance and less than truthful.

We reunited after my birthday fiasco and planned another getaway together, but once again he claimed I let him down because I "wasn't there for him." To be honest I truly have no idea what I did wrong because he didn't explain his expectations to me and then just decided to break it off.

He claimed to be honest with me about other people who were interested in him and I was accepting and forgiving and completely understanding. But now it has been less than a week and he's already with someone else, which leads me to believe he was looking for an excuse to break up with me and used this getaway fiasco as his escape route, which is fine with me because I'd rather not have to deal with so much drama and unnecessary guilt for no reason. I just wish he could have been honest with me instead of trying to make me feel bad for doing something that I didn't do.

I hope this other person can bring him the happiness that I obviously couldn't, because that's all I ever really wanted for him. As for me, I'll be just fine as a single surrounded by friends; friends don't seem to come with so many strings attached.


Bittersweet Birthday

I turned 11 on July 23rd, and what started out as a wonderful day turned into one of sadness. Daddy made pancakes for breakfast which were delicious and Mommy gave me the greatest long tummyrub in the history of tummyrubs, and I received tons of special gifts and rosies from all my pals on Dogster. The best part, tho, was that my boyfriend had planned all this extra special stuff, which leads up to the tragic part of the day.

I sent thank you pmails to everyone for my gifts and rosies, including one to my boyfriend thanking him for sending me the most beautiful roses and tulips, but apparently he didn't get the thank you and he felt slighted. Then, later in the evening, he tried to IM with me, but I was preoccupied and didn't realize it until much too late, and he thought I was blowing him off when I truly wasn't. I tried to apologize, but apparently he was too hurt to accept it because the first slide on this amazing slide show he made about us said RIP 1-18-09 to 7-23-09 with a picture of a broken heart.

I haven't heard from him since I replied and tried to explain what happened. We had previously discussed that he felt like I was ignoring him if I didn't correspond with him every day and I tried to explain that it wasn't always convenient for me to be on Dogster at certain times and that sometimes several days go by before I'm able to get on, but I guess him not hearing from me that day made him think that I no longer cared or something and that I was ungrateful.

He is a very generous and sweet pup, and it makes me sad to think what could have been, but after crying for the past several days I've realized it doesn't do any good to dwell on something that I can't change, especially when he won't talk to me. It was a wonderful 7 months, but to quote a song by Roxette "It must have been love, but it's over now."


Finally it has happened to me!

I am in love! A few weeks ago my BFF Minnie casually pointed out to me a handsome male Border Collie who had joined Pug Pals. He is from Chicago and a year younger than me and has the most beautiful fluffy, black coat and mesmerizing brown eyes. Anyway, with Minnie's encouragement he and I began to chat and soon he asked me out and now...we're in love. We've had several incredible dates, including dinner and a movie, a family dinner for his birthday and a really great party. Then, for Valentine's Day, we went on a carriage ride and had a really romantic dinner. And for every date he has given me flowers; such a gentleman. My family really likes him, mostly because he treats me so nicely and makes me so happy! On our next date I'm taking him to the beach for a weenie roast and sunset stroll along the shore.

I'm so lucky! And, I owe it all to my guardian angel BFF Minnie the Matchmaker who was looking out for my happiness. She is the epitome of a true friend. I am truly blessed and loved.
