Nicknames: Genny, Genna, Genebeeb, Den-a-beeb, Eve, Gene, and of course....GG!
Birthday: April 4th 2005
Likes: She loves playing, traveling, going on vactions, eating, sleeping, and receiving attention!
Pet-Peeves: Whenever she's left alone, whenever you put your face up to hers, intruders, bigger dogs and loud noises.
Favorite Toy: Definitely her stuffed lamb!
Favorite Food: Anything and everything!
Favorite Walk: She LOVES it when we go to Bond Park, a community park near our home. She could stay there for hours! Sometimes we also walk around the neighborhood with her.
Best Tricks: "Give me high ten!" (She stands up on her back legs with her paws in the air), "speak," "stay," "sit," and "roll over."
Arrival Story: My older brother had Sparky as his own dog, and I wanted a dog for my own so we could be "even," although my parents were hesitant to get another dog. One morning, my mom saw an ad in the paper for poodle puppies being sold in Durham, and we went down there to take a look. We didn't really have intentions on actually buying one as I didn't exactly have a poodle in mind -- I was lobbying for a larger breed -- but when we saw the runt of the litter, we knew immediately that she was the one.
Bio: We named Genevieve after the adorable little dog in the Madeline books! Her name is pronounced JEN-uh-veev. She is very loving and uncomfortable only around strangers, but the most she will do is bark. She is definitely a lap dog; all she usually wants to do is cuddle. She can be energetic and playful if she is in the mood. She is intelligent and learns new tricks almost immediately, and once she sees that I'm planning to give her a treat, she automatically does her best tricks without being told. Her birthday is April 4, 2006.
I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and I hope this turns out to be a great year for all of you. Time really does fly right past you, this June will be my third anniversary on Dogster. My first few months in 2006 were great, I had made a lot of new friends and I had fun. I remember back when I was celebrating with my Dogster pals the arrival of 2007!
2007 was also a good year, full of happy times, but towards summer I kind of given up on Dogster, many good friends have left and I realized I had a life to get back to. Since then I've been on and off Dogster repeatedly. I don't post on forums much and I only talk to good friends, maybe if things weren't so different I would be more active. Oh well, time goes on, and the only thing you can do is go with it.
I hope everyone welcomes this year without hesitation and will go out to make this year worth while. :)
I saw a thread in the forums that was my perfect opportunity to thank Dogster for the grave impact on my life. I would just like to share my post with everyone:
When I first came on Dogster, I did not expect anything like what I have received through the years. I treated Dogster as just another website, thinking in a year or so I would forget all about it. At the time I did not view everything the way I do now. I treated everything as if it were a big game.
I was surprised when I met such kind, welcoming Dogsters. I made some new friends, friends I knew at that moment I would never forget. I was right, I will never forget any of you wonderful people that are happy to see me when I come on and had missed me during my long hiatus. Dogster has brought me through good times and bad times, and I am thankful for every moment. Dogster has taught me just how valuable friends and memories can be. I must say myself that I have matured in great measure since I first came on, let alone became a better dog owner, and I owe it all to the wonderful people and pups I have met, and I would love to continue making new friends and spending a little more time with my current friends. Dogster will always play a significant role in my life. Thank you, Dogster. I love you all!
Christmas 2007 was way more fun than last year. It was our first Christmas in our new house. Relatives from New Mexico came to visit, and guess what? I didn't knock down the tree! Not once! Whoohoo! And a good thing too, because mom bought some new, pretty ornaments. On Christmas Eve, mom baked some yummy cookies for Sandy Paws (of course I sneaked just a few... okay maybe half of the batch.) Mom sprinkled some reindeer food over the grass of our backyard. Now I can always have a snack when she takes me outside! But also, tons squirrels have been snooping around our backyard. They had a taste of the food, so they always keep coming back for more.
Anyway, we did all of our Christmas Eve traditions, such as opening one present before Christmas Day. My present was a bag of new "tasty" dog kibble. Thankfully, there were more, better presents for me. Like, thousands of new toys! And a new bed that's much more comfortable than my other one! Later, on Christmas Day, friends from our old neighborhood came for Christmas dinner.
I hope everypup else had a wonderful time, no matter what you celebrate.
