Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog

February 14th 2005

Running up and down the stairs, barking at any and every thing.

Being separated from mommy.

Favorite Toy:
Toys... who needs toys? I just chew up my leash, harness, and mommy's socks whenever mommy isn't looking.

Favorite Food:
I like stealing treats from Milo and I love eating anything that Mommy drops on the kitchen floor (especially macaroni!)

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, as long as my brother Milo is with me.

Best Tricks:
I can run backwards and sideways at top speed!

Arrival Story:
As told by mommy: Zelda was rescued from a Pennsylvania puppy mill in February 2006 and became eligible for adoption from the Delaware SPCA in July 2006. We were looking for a companion for our 4 year old pomeranian, Milo (also from the SPCA) and when we heard about the papillon puppies, we were the first ones in line to adopt one.

As told by mommy: Zelda has had limited human contact and has spent most of her life in a crate. We have a lot of work ahead of us with housebreaking and training, but she's already responding well to us. Zelda is very attached to Mommy and she'll whine nonstop when Mommy is away from home. Update 1/24/07: We're ready to declare Zelda almost 100% housetrained. Her older brother Milo has more accidents than she does! Zelda is still very attached to her Mommy and runs to find Mommy first thing in the morning and stays underfoot whenever Mommy is home. As Zelda has become more confident and comfortable she's started being even more affectionate and she annoys her big "brother" Milo by stealing his food and treats.

Mommy's Socks

I love my mommy's socks. Mommy thinks I am weird, but whenever she leaves her socks where I can see them, I steal them and take them to my crate! Sometimes when mommy isn't looking, I sneak into her bedroom and take her socks out of her laundry basket. My favorite is when she leaves her socks inside of her shoes at the top of the stairs and I just run upstairs grab a sock and I hide it in my crate before Mommy even knows what happened.

Mommy tried to see if I would take Daddy's socks, but I don' t like his. Just mommy's.


Criminal Behavior

I've been getting into a little bit of trouble lately at the house. Mommy makes me wear this stupid harness thing so that she can attach my leash when it's time to go for a walk. I don't like having weird things attached to my body! Doesn't mommy know I want to be free. Well, when mommy is at work, I just chew off my harness. I do it every single day. Sometimes mommy tries to trick me by taking off the harness when she leaves for work. Well, daddy never remembers to take it off, so as soon as he leaves it on, I destroy it! That will show them now to try to restrain me!

Mommy also likes me to wear a leash when I'm in the house. Something about she wants me to get used to wearing a leash. Well, I don't like that either. Who wants a four foot piece of nylon following them everywhere? Not me, so I chew that off, too!

Mommy told daddy she would try to use some kind of bitter apple stuff on my leash and harness so I won't chew it. I don't care, I still chew through that nasty stuff. Nothing is worse than being held back. Mommy needs to just let me be free.

I think mommy is getting frustrated. Especially since yesterday she was looking all over the house for her socks and then she found them in my crate. I couldn't help it, the socks smelled like mommy and mommy was too busy to pay attention to me, so I just took the socks to my house!

Mommy thinks I'm a little trouble maker. I don't mean to make her mad, I just don't understand why she makes me wear these things. I don't know how my brother Milo does it. And he has all that fur. All that fur and he wears a harness? He must be miserable!

Well, nobody is gonna hold me back. Next time mommy makes we wear a harness or leash, I'm gonna steal her favorite shoes!


No More Stinky Pup!

Today mommy took me for my first professional grooming. I was very afraid when she left me there. I cried and begged mommy not to leave me. My brother Milo was very brave. He didn't even care. I think he had been there before. I wasn't sure if mommy was coming back, so I cried.

Mommy and daddy had been calling me "Stinky Pup" all week. I guess I smelled kinda bad since I had been at a shelter for so long. Mommy couldn't bathe me until I got my stitches out from my surgery. As soon as I was healed mommy took me to the beauty salon.

The grooming people were very nice to me. They cleaned my ears, brushed my teeth, clipped my nails and gave me a bath. When mommy picked me up, she couldn't believe how much better I smelled! Grandma and daddy said that they used to think I was beige, but now they can see that my fur is white. I guess I really was a stinky pup.

Now that I smell better, my brother is being nice to me. He even let me get close to him in the car on the way home.

I'm glad mommy an daddy are taking good care of me. I hope my brother keeps being nice to me!
