Quick Bio:

March 29th 2005

My husband, Henry the Dane from England; daily hikes; rides to anywhere in a vehicle of any kind; visits to Petsmart/Petco; my Basset friend Truman; my Mommy; and all my online Leans 'n Slobbers Dane friends!

cold days; icy walkways; when Mommy leaves for work in the morning

Favorite Toy:
The favorite ones never last long so Mommy has to keep a close watch when I play and also rotate them so I don't get bored (do I have her trained or what?!)

Favorite Food:
Dates; Cheese; Flint River Ranch is THE BEST kibble; for everyday treats there is always Peanut Butter, loads and loads of Peanut Butter, crunchy or smooth, no matter as long as it is PEANUT BUTTER!

Favorite Walk:
3-5 mile daily hike up the mountain, along the ridge at the top, down next to the cow pasture, and through the apple orchard to home; length of hike depends on the turns we take based on weather, time and Mom's energy level!

Best Tricks:
ringing the bell on the front door to go out; herding the ducks into the pond; and all the normal Dane tricks such as drinking from the bathtub faucet, being so tall I get my fur on the ROOF of the inside of the SUV, etc.

Arrival Story:
Mommy really wanted a dog and researched all the dog breeds. She decided that a Great Dane was just right for her and found a breeder with pups. She picked me from my 8 brothers and sisters. I came to my new home in early June, 2005, and Mommy, since she is a college teacher, was off for the summer, so she could spend 3 whole months with me letting me know the difference between right and wrong -- of course she let me know which does not necessarily mean I always agree with her logic :-)

I have an older sister who is a cat named Pumpkin. Mommy got Pumpkin in Sweden during the time she lived in Stockholm. Pumpkin has lived in 4 different countries, but she never had a brother or sister before me. Boy was I a big shock to her when I came bounding in the door! She is still trying to recover but I am using my Great Dane charm to convince her how "great" I am.

Hated Fowl:
Big Agnes the duck whom I try to capture every time I see her big ugly white body!

Artistic Side:
Creating abstract art by leaving my nose prints on all windows and glass surfaces.

Thing I Love to Hate:
My Gentle Leader head collar: I hate it because it makes me listen; but I love it because it means I can go to busy places with my Mom.

Four years ago today I was born in Catlet, Virginia, USA, with my 8 brothers and sisters. Since I am a supreme princess, that means today is all about MOI! Still in bed, I am dictating this diary entry and my mum is entering it for me. I have proclaimed that I shall be treated in a manner befitting my princess status today and every day. My Dane brother and kitty sister are hereby commanded to do my bidding throughout this special day. A trip to McDonald's for a McDouble cheeseburger is also in my immediate future.

Happy Birthday ME!


We've been TAGGED!

My wonderful husband Henry tagged my brother Jam and me, so here we go:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their diary the rules and their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose some dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!


Here I go!

Seven Things About Me...Bella Fox-Gladstone!

1) I pretend sometimes that I don't like my new Dane brother Jam, but I really do. He's pretty fun to be with.
2) I am very bossy and try to hide it, but people seem to know right away!
3) I like going for rides. Doesn't matter where, as long as Mom's at the wheel and I'm co-piloting.
4) My newest favorite toy is a big, thick knotted rope Mom got me that I dangle in front of my brother outside.
5) I can't wait until the day comes when I can meet my wonderful husband Henry. I hope it's next year!
6) I actually love to get a bath in the bathtub and then zoom all around the house afterwards to get dry.
7) I kind of like winter best of all because there aren't any big scary bugs outside, and I can stretch out in front of the woodstove in the living room for a nice, long nap all warm and cozy.

We are tagging our friends Madison, Lady, Kokoa Girl, King and Scotia.

....we came home with my "brother" Dane, Jam. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I kept telling mummy that I wanted to have a Dane of my very own to play with. I didn't bank on him hogging so much of her attention though. I wish there were some way he could be around to play with, but then scram when it comes time to be with mum and get loving.

Hmmmm Have to work on that idea.

Yours in narsicism,
