   Leave a bone for Wembley

Sweet Pea, Peanut, Baby or anything Mommy comes up with in the moment. Also Fart-blossom if the situation merits . . .

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

January 5th 2002

Car rides and running errands. Sitting in Mommy's lap when she comes home from work. Getting dirty playing in mud puddles just as soon as I've had a bath.

Anyone loudly stomping up the stairs in our apartment building. Also, when the groomer puts bows in my fur even though I'm a boy.

Favorite Toy:
My yellow ducky that Grandma gave me for Christmas.

Favorite Food:
Shrimp, and sharing string cheese and popcorn with Mommy.

Favorite Walk:
Down the Mississippi River walk on Mud Island, or past the barn at home in Shelbyville.

Best Tricks:
I can dance very well, but I'm most entertaining immediately after a bath when I run around the apartment at triple speed while someone sings/plays "I Got You (I Feel Good)."

Arrival Story:
I moved in with my new Mommy in November '05. She had been looking for a smallish dog in several shelters around the area. One day she was crying on the phone to her Aunt Claudia about how hard it was looking at shelter dogs and having to leave them behind, when Claudia mentioned that Mommy's cousin Jennifer had a poochie who needed a new home. (My other mommy Jennifer had started having to travel frequently for her job, and she was having to leave me alone or put me in the kennel more than she thought she should) I was sad to leave my other family in Georgia and move to Tennessee, but it turns out that my new mommy and I are the perfect fit. And I really like playing with my new "cousins" Ginger and Dakota when I visit Grandma and Grandpa in Shelbyville.

My name was changed from Nugget to Wembley shortly after I got my new family. New Mommy thought it might help me to get used to a new family and a new routine if I had a new name to go with it. Anyway, I'm named after Wembley the yellow Fraggle on Fraggle Rock, as Mommy thinks I kind of "wemble" around a lot like Wembley on the show. And in case you didn't know (I didn't -- Mommy had to tell me, too), "to wemble" is a Fragglish word that means "to go back and forth from one thing to another without deciding on anything." Mommy is right: I definitely do have trouble deciding whose lap to sit in at night, and sometimes I try to play with two toys at once.

Today was a good day . . .

Mommy had the day off today, so we got to spend lots of time together. She even made me a webpage for all of our friends to see. In the afternoon, she took me with her to run some errands. We had the oil changed. That wasn't so much fun 'cause I had to stay in my carrier bag. But hooray! The oil change took longer than Mommy thought it would so I got to go to a meeting with her and meet lots of her friends at school. Mommy's friends petted me lots (and I love me some lovin'). After the meeting, we went to the car wash. I met a new friend named Mikayla (a two year old human) who wanted to play with me, too. She tried to pet me some, and Mommy tried to help her be gentle to me. Really Mikayla just wanted to pull on my little tail! Mommy wouldn't let her, though, and I was happy to get back in my carrier then.

Now we're home and I've had my supper, so it's off to sleep I go . . .
